Greetings and Salutations!

I apologize that my email has stacked up. I've spent the past few days completely buried in doing the year-end finances, reports, backups, and other administrative stuff. If I let myself get distracted from it, it never gets done :)

I believe I am pretty much caught up with all of that work now, hurrah! I will work to catch up on all the pending email as quickly as I can.

While I was digging in all those traffic reports I saw that our new BellaOnline nutrition database is extremely popular. That is great! We want our visitors to be healthy. I therefore spent a few hours today improving our pages and adding a "nutrition label" to the detail page. You can see how it works here -


Please let me know if you have any suggestions for these pages. We would like to help our visitors as much as possible!


I've heard from several editors recently that their home systems fried and they were dealing with trauma because of it. I know it's easy to forget, but I want to enthusiastically recommend everyone to back up their computers! It's something we tend to put off. We figure we'll get to it later. Then a power surge sizzles our hard drive and we are traumatized.

It's VERY easy to back up your important files. We can help! Just post in the PC Advice forum -


and we'll step you through it. Even if all you do is copy your most important files onto a DVD, you'll be *very* thankful later that you took those five minutes.

Put it on your to-do list. Post to get the steps to do. We'll help you set it up in a schedule, and you won't have to think about it ever again!
