From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67) of VA - 10/07/15, 7:59 AM:
FYI, I have a Mac and cannot open
your news letters. Not sure why. Thanks for your good work though!
Mac - that may explain something, but I'm not sure just what...
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA -10/06/15, 5:58 PM:
I haven’t been able to access the site from your emails for months.
ARGHH! Not even NOW? With the new Wonder Plan?!
ARGHHHHH! I believe the problem for the nine or ten or so of you who are still finding this to be true rests in the controls and setting of your individual equipment. I'll check my sources on this, but I think it's just a minor adjustment. I just don't happen to know what it is....
