I am mailing an e-ewsletter to 123 CG members tonight ... could take all night but I'm off to bed, Outlook is in charge.  Apologies to anyone who gets it twice but I got a returned message "too many recipients" when I sent it as one mass mail.. It proved quicker to send to everyone (seperately :P)  than to pick out the 'losers' from the return message!

I am interested to know if it has arrived OK ... and if not PM me and I'll sort it.  The file is big @ 3mb pdf (like the Bulb Log).  I tried saving it smaller but lost a lot of quality in the images.  Any ideas for doing it better gratefully recieved. 

It will all be familiar to Forum readers but hopefully pulling related things together helps.  I am hopeful of some input from other CG members (non forum) in future.

His was a long life - lived well.

Thanks Tony, mine arrived yesterday and was read around midnight. It was lovely to see a certain little blue number as the first crocus mentioned in the newsletter. :D

Good to know some have it - to those who have not received yet, please keep pestering me.  I have sent to everyone on the list (and resent to you Michael C) but it seems emails can 'go missing' just like snail mail!  I suggest people check in their spam email folder (outlook squirrels mine into a folder before I see it) as despite my not being a spammer, it might be there.
