Good Evening Friends!
Welcome back from what we hope was a restful weekend?
This past weekend didn’t end well, and we’re sure you’ve been reading all the stories about events at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Since I moved to California, going to the festival has been something I’ve wanted to do, but we never found the time to go. Makes you wonder?
Life around here hasn’t changed one bit. We’re still trying to figure the best way to implement the new idea of flash newsletters. We’ve tossed around the concepts of having it in the middle of the newsletter, so it gets seen, but you can scroll by if you’re not interested.
Then last week I mentioned in the newsletter about having links to another site that would be home for the flash newsletter, but after thinking it over this weekend, I see an issue with that. First and more importantly is giving you another link to click. Who wants that?
Today we’re considering running the newsletter at the bottom of the newsletter right after The Mishegoss. It seems like a good place even though it’s at the bottom, but it won’t be in the way, and if you want to check it out, it’ll be there.
**If you check out the bottom of the page, you’ll see the header for one of the new flash letters to give you an idea!
Any thoughts from you on this would be greatly appreciated.
Now let’s discover some stuff.
  • Twitter seems to have an idea about meeting face-to-face
  • Oakland has a Monster
  • Sea Lions and brain damage
  • Tesla Coil in LA
By the way, we’re trying out the less is more theory today. There’s a total of 11 stories. I thought about sticking to 10, but I had that one story that fits perfectly in The Mishegoss section, so I went with 11. 
What do you think?
Be Well,
Mark & Patti
