Discussing Everyday Issues Affecting Everyday People

Edition 14 - Volume 4
7/7/2002 thru 7/13/2002

Apology 

Please accept my apology for the lack of updates throughout the week. I also apologize that the continuation of these stories will not be ready in a timely manner. As many of you are already aware, I have a physical problem which causes me to suffer from chronic pain. I have more recently found a physical therapist who specializes in pain management. He has been remarkable, but this past week has found my condition deteriorating once again..... Continued...

New Look To Site Fights Spirit Page

Although I was unable to spend much time at the computer throughout the week, my four and six-year-old grandchildren found a way to help Grandma, while allowing me to complete a Spirit Makeover.  

I sat the two children in front of a computer, set them loose at the Site Fights, and listened to what they had to say. I believe they adopted every item that the site fights offers for adoption, and told me how they felt my Spirit pages should be. 

Listening to children is important. Their ideas were fantastic and took just a short amount of time to complete. So please, visit both my first and my second completely renovated Spirit Pages. Let me know what you think. 

 

Issues made it through the semi-final rounds at The Site Fights.  Therefore, we have a new voting URL. We appreciate all of our supporters and ask for your continued support this week.  Issues is asking our readers to drop by and vote for us once a day, Monday through Friday. Simply scroll down the page click the circle next to Issues Ezine place your email address in the text box and vote. Don't worry, your email address will not be sold to an international SPAM group, and you won't receive unsolicited emails from The Site Fights for doing us a favor. WE PROMISE!

DRO's and QDRO's 

This is a topic that Issues has previously covered. However, I do not wish for anyone to go through what I am presently faced with, just because a simple piece of paper was not filed. Therefore, I am recovering the ground. First, read a little about DRO's and QDRO's. Once you, the reader, has reached a bit of clarity on the topic, then feel free to read about my present dilemma.

Although this is something that is excruciatingly personal, if my dilemma will help others to not have to face a similar situation in the future, it is well worth sharing. Continued...

Margaret's Country Crafts

Issues was extremely impressed when Margaret's Country Crafts notified us that they had purchased some candles and crafts from a going-out-of-business sale, and wanted to pass along the savings to Issues readers. Margaret has offered  Issues' readers an additional 10% off from the clearance merchandise. Here's the secret to the additional 10% savings: place your order, when you are taken to the confirm order page put the word Issues next to your name, when you receive your email confirmation you will also receive an additional 10% off from all clearance merchandise. 

For those of you not interested in the clearance merchandise, put Issues next to your name after making an order, and Margaret will ship a "surprise" with your order.  Continued

   

Issues Announces New Contest

Check Issues main page often. We will be giving away a copy of George Harb's Never Let You Go sometime during the month of July. A question will be placed on the front page for a one hour interval. The first person able to answer the question correctly, within the one hour time period, will be awarded a copy of the new CD. So take a good look through our site so you'll be ready to answer the mystery question. And don't forget, the question will be hidden on the front page. It will appear for one hour only. The first reader to locate and correctly answer the question will be our winner. 

Here's a bit of a clue: Check out George's site, and stop back on Wednesday.

 

NEW FORMAT - ANY COMMENTS

Issues will be utilizing a new format for our weekly ezine. Starting today, our main page will hold one paragraph of text from each new article; the remainder of the article will be on a separate page. By clicking on continued at the end of the paragraph, you will be taken to the actual article.

Issues wants to know if our readers feel that this new format is better. We want to make our reader's comfortable, and pages easily accessible. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
