Whoa. You look *so* much like mo,

Since last week we have had a whole pile of new subscribers sign up from near and far... Holyoke, Northampton, Nashville, Montreal, NYC, Aspen, Mount Airy, NC (Andy Griffith's birthplace), San Francisco, UK, Palm Beach Gardens and Tanzania (for real, all of it).

Ok, it's not like all those people randomly heard about our newsletter and just *had* to sign up, I already knew them. But still, does this not make our newsletter international?

Maybe they are just indulging me by signing up.
Come to think of it, I just signed some of them up without even asking first so maybe I am indulging myself.

What if, as it turned out, everyone has just been indulging me...like, since birth?


Old newsletters are now here.
