Thanks for sharing this!

It’s 2007–and here in Carpenter Country the time has come for our newsletter to have a mini-facelift. The surgery will be done with a light hand, but will probably be ongoing.

For now the tips will be tightened up. The essays will be bobbed. The book review will be nipped off and tossed in the surgical dumpster.

The satire retains its sharp witty image and the articles will stay too, though we hope to make them more user friendly.

This means if there’s a topic you’d like us to research and write about, please send your idea to the e-mail address in this newsletter. We aren’t experts in every field, and our disclaimer still stands, but we’re willing to tackle most any subject.

So here’s our new look. Let us know what you think of the changes.
