1) ...sign up David Steele.  cheers, Henry Astor    Henry: He's on the list.
2) As far as I am concerned, either way you send the newsletter I can open the attachment without any
  problem.  But I use a Mac, which makes life easier and happier (no, I am not paid by Mr. Jobs...)  Re my
  email address, no problem, it's public, but I prefer to let everyone know my web site address:, so they give a look to my models first and then can send me an email using the link
  at the end of every page.  There are full stories about most of the real cars modelled, so it may be of in-
  terest even to those who are not interested in scale models.  Many thanks for all the work you are doing
  and all the best.  Ugo Fadini      Ugo: In the beginning, all groups go through this discovery period until they
  find a way they like to operate.  It appears that I will run two newsletters.  One will be a normal email and the
  other one an attachment.  I will take requests from members whenever they have trouble with one or the other
3) I'd appreciate being on the list. Especially if it is via email.  Many thanks, Bob Storck    Bob: Welcome.
4) Editor's notes: I use all letters received from the members if it appears that it might be of interest to the readers.
  If it is personal and confidential, please tell me so.  If what you have to say is important for others to know, I will
  remove any reference to the sender and run the letter as 'Anonymous.'  It doesn't happen very often, but mistakes
  are made and the policy of the newsletter is to issue a general apology, a personal apology and a retraction.  But
  rather than have that happen, please let me know if you spot any mistakes in past newsletters and clearly write
  "PERSONAL" on your emails.
5) Could I please be added to the news letter list?   Frank Salzberg      Frank: Welcome!
6) They (newsletters) came through fine.  I have some personal experiences relating to the interaction of
  the glider and speed record guys in the late 50s at El Mirage and Rosamund.  Maybe some other lakes.
  Had some good cooperation and interesting tales.  Cheers, Bob Storck
7) Steve Fossett's plane is missing in Nevada.  Does anyone have any news on the situation?  Fossett purchased
  Craig Breedlove's LSR car and equipment and was attempting to break the land speed record.
