a significant change in the email announcements for the family. We have combined all
email lists into one, yet shortened what you get in your mailbox. Sound interesting?
Well, if you were subscribed to any of the Longhurst related lists, you are subscribed to
the new list. If not, then visit the
Free Email page and subscribe
to the new Weekly Longhurst Report. This new report provides many short summaries of the
content found here at the web site. It's a better way to keep everyone informed and it
provides a choice of stories and reports we can read more information about, by following
the attached links.
