A note on viewing newsletters: Some folks are having troubles opening and viewing the newsletters on their Mac computers. We’ve heard opening the page in a Google Chrome web browser does the trick.  Apologies if this is a problem for you – if you’d like, we’ll pop a newsletter in an email to you, just send us a note. If you know how to fix this, please let us know. We are trying to figure it out. Thanks.
