Do you find it frustrating when you receive a very informative ezine then discover it’s not online as well. I try to keep my e-mail box cleared out (I’m not always successful). However, I just realized I no longer had the directions for a project because I’d deleted the ezine. (Even putting newletters in folders becomes […]

Travel - the Lure of the Ages
Travel - the lure of distant lands, the desire to see around the next bend, the call of the unknown, the inability to stay in one place has affected humans from time unknown. Some people, though, desire to stay at home, while others tour the globe.
