<font color='black' size='2' face='Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif'>Thanks, Paul. The email notification is something we hope to work on this year. We had a clunky system with a lot of bounces in the past. We'll probably set up something where subscribers have to opt in to receive notice. I appreciate 7our input.
