There's a lot of great articles in this issue, and I can't wait to share them with you all!
      In other news, I was recently able to purchase an excellent graphics program, Photo Impact 6. (The website for the company that made it is here.) It has been great fun to learn how to use it so far, and I'm very happy with it. The new banner at the the top of this page is one of my latest creations =), and I've also re-done most of the pictures on the "Story Behind HW" page. I hope to be able to improve other graphics on this site as I have time.
      It's still not too late to fill out HW's 2001 survey so please take a moment to do that if you haven't yet. Thanks to all of you who have shared your opinions!!

2.23.01 -- Well, the summary for Vol. 40 of HW is here! I will be working hard this week to get all the copies mailed out to subscribers.

Your opinions really are valuable, and I can't wait to see the results start coming in. :-)

Now is your chance to reserve your copy, and I'll send it out ASAP (if possible, please send a donation of $1 per copy; $2 outside U.S.). Click here for more information about the issue, including a list of articles. Another change today is a new question for the poll: please check it out! Thanks so much to all who voted in the last poll -- I had fun seeing the results!

1.14.01 -- Today I added my scanned signature to the letter above, and also posted two new articles to the Sample Article page. I also added several new graphics to various pages.

12.26.00 -- The summary of the current issue of HW is now up here! I haven't been able to make the copies yet because of all the snow we've had lately, but hope to be able to do that tomorrow, Lord willing.

12.15.00 -- I just discovered how to make the HW banner and logo with a transparent background, and couldn't wait to share the results with you all. I'm quite excited about it! =) I'd be glad to tell you how I did it if you're interested: it's amazingly simple!
     I hope you are all staying warmer than we are... Another blizzard is scheduled to come through the midwest tomorrow, and we're bracing for it. But, we have faith that spring will arrive in due time. =)

12.4.00 -- I just finished redoing a lot on the Paul's Grains part of this website. I added a bunch of recipes that have become our favorites through the years, so those of you who enjoy cooking will want to check that out. =)
