Updated Newsletter Format


I have decided to try an improved version of my email communication where I send one email followed by a correction email. I am turning a new leaf and plan on keeping you updated in style. Some of you may prefer the email version so if you do please let me know as I take your opinions seriously.


With this new format I can write more details and can post articles by Kora or myself as well as videos and pictures so it should be more complete, fun, and provide me with endless hours of entertainment and work on long flights.

My next project will be the Samba bounce vs rhythm timing, hopefully I will have time today - especially if there is snow! Again any suggestions are appreciated.
