you liked our previous e-patra. This is the second patra.
We will attempt to send one in the first week of every month. We had
some difficulty in setting up proper e-mail account to handle mass
mailing. Because of that we had to change our e-mail address a couple
of times. We are now settled for firstname.lastname@example.org. Please
use this address for any future correspondence.
for your understanding of our e-problems !!!
