What do you get if you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover?
A rash of good luck!
Yes, you read that correctly. This is the Mar 2005 edition. Up until the beginning of August 2004 I was able to produce a newsletter every two weeks. It is still my intention to do just that, however, every now and then life gets in my way and I am unable to maintain that pace. So until I get back to normal, the newsletters will be publihed on a sporadic basis. At least once a month.
A special thanks to all of the new subscribers. The response continues to be overwhelming. Thanks for subscribing to this free newsletter from www.cafba.ca. Please tell your friends about this newsletter.

More and more mail servers are blocking attachments to emails or are scanning for known s*p*a*m words. We have experienced delivery problems to AOL, specifically and some free email address sites such as hotmail, netscape or yahoo.
So to avoid these delivery problems, from this issue forth, you will only receive a text message to let you know the newsletter has been published and where to find it.
