As a student, I was not very good at memorizing facts and I found many subjects in school to be boring or difficult to comprehend. I was not a great student by any stretch of the imagination.

This issue of the newsletter is about time capsules. While the way that I use the idea of time capsules is not necessarily the original or proper representation of the concept, you must know by now that I am rarely orthodox in my views or methods. I do what feels right for me.
Thank you to everyone for your well wishes. I am still recovering.
