Now, that is a well-done newsletter! Kudos! However, my cursed Inner Proofreader caught a boo-boo right off, in the quote from Poor Richard's Almanac: "The busy man has few idle visitors, to the boiling pot the files come not." Shouldn't that be flies?

Yeah, I guess I do want to be an Acting Lieutenant forever...

Sorry about the error, I try and catch all of them, but with Spell Check it only works if the word is mis-spelled properly, ha ha ha.

If anyone wants to volunteer to proof read it I'll be glad to have any and all the help I can get. I know anything from checking spelling to submitting articles.

Anyone wishing to submit articles please do so as I need all the help I can get.  ;D

Too true, Colonel. The best way to avoid that is to get someone else to read it, because we're really good at missing our own mistakes.

Okay, me and my big mouth hereby volunteer to do proofreading... it's the least we can do to make it up to you  ;D

I may just have some from back when I published my reenacting unit's newsletter that can be recycled. Stand by.

Send anything that needs to be looked over whenever you wish, Monsieur le Colonel. I'll go digging through the old 3rd US Infantry articles for material also.
