Last week I sent out my eNews alert email as usual, but all those with an email address were returned undelivered.  I hope this is only a temporary glitch.  I did try sending to them via Windows Mail as well but I’ve no idea whether those were delivered.  If you are one of the aol subscribers and you did not receive last week’s eNews alert you can access it from the archive menu on the right.
Take care of yourself!
