Please note that I changed host servers this week, and consequently, will no longer be able to run the Lotta Readers Digest.

Subscribers do not need to do anything. Lrd will simply stop running, and your link to Lrd On Request will no longer work.

If you have any questions, please do ask.

FYI, fellow "S" people, the image does not have to be a jpg. It should work on any format - the key is to have the fully qualified image url. Here's a png: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/47/PNG_transparency_demonstration_1.png/280px-PNG_transparency_demonstration_1.p...

Wow, FG going all-in for MCMFD VI! Fasten your seat belt, Uncle Martin! Team Sky's French Connection is Le Corbusier ... but it seems so lame on the high heels of Ray Walston and Soupy Sales. Through nine rounds: http://mcmfd.bigdogwebpages.com/mcmfd.php Anyone starting new today can draft nine picks!
