Re: Gardening newsletters anyone?

I understand that email's not for everyone.  To tell you the truth, if I
weren't on CHAT, there'd be many days with no emails, so I might not be
inclined to check it frequently.  I guess though, that I wish the people who
have no intention of checking their email, would simply just not list it as
a communication method.  If you intend only to be reached by phone, you
should only give a ph number.
