Yesterday's newsletter was the first put together on my new iMac computer. All the previous editions of the TCN have used PCs and Microsoft Word. As I adjust to the new equipment and commands there may be some minor differences in formatting. Hopefully, these will not cause any significant problems. I scheduled the switch during a US holiday to give me some additional time to learn the "Mac way" and since news slows down around a holiday. Thanks for your patience.
Perhaps this is the lane for those traveling on horseback.
