Dear Geraldine Monk:

The GARGOYLES are wonderful. I take them out when ever I am blue. I bring them to work. I show them to friends who used to write poetry but have stopped and they are encouraged to go on (true!).

I always think my "next poem" is going to be my best one, so I'm having a hard time thinking of what to send that's new and the right length.

I like the testimony series because it is based on this idea I have that testimonials are predominantly women's writing. I remember going away for a weekend, having selected a "chalet" based on very vivid satisfied customer letters written by women. It was just a horrible, flea-infested, smelly dump! And we spent the whole time wondering how the women who write the testimonials lived if they thought the cabin was so great.
So there are a great many patent medicine and hoax medical device and whatnot brochures in the public domain, and this makes them free online. One of the patent medicines is actually still for sale here in the states and I have some -- Lydia Pinkham's -- though they halved the amount of alcohol it contains in the 1930s, during Prohibition.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about diabetes discussion) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about diabetes discussion related articles and subjects.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
