Re: Magazine subscription

Yes mine arrived today.

Also in the mail was my seed order from the Real seed company.

The real seed company used paper/cardboard the magazine used plastic.

In this age of plastic is bad news perhaps magazine company could look at using brown paper envelopes (without windows).

Re: Pa Snip Enterprise Log New Year Snippets

Re: That "10 Free Lottery Ticket" handout.....warning...
