Your Comments Are Welcome

February 18th, 2014

I am wearing my ‘publisher’s hat’ this morning. Last week many of you spontaneously contacted me to welcome the Tuesday edition of our Newsletter.

In fact, we have many new projects in the pipeline so now is a good time to ask all of you to let us know if you have an idea for GBN. We definitely want to hear it!
