Carol (eBay ID:Easttown) wrote me a letter this week. The manager of her antique mall was called up to duty to support the 101st Airborne Division. "The number of reserves being called up increases every day. These service men and women are trained to do a job and they will almost certainly make us all very proud of them. However, it has to be a lonely feeling, leaving your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, children, spouses, etc. to go someplace you have never been before."

Carol wondered if we were interested in supporting a drive to stay in touch with the service men and women who are away from home. You can read Carol's full note on the forum here: < http://www.auctionbytes.com/forum/phpBB/viewtopic.php?topic=81&foru m=3&1>, and if you have any ideas, please reply on the forum so we can all learn how to help out. I also found a site with tips and addresses on where to send letters to service men and women < http://www.defenselink.mil/faq/pis/PC10PNPL.html>.

Technical Update: Last week I mentioned that we were switching servers. We made the transition, but there may be a few kinks to be worked out. If you find any URLs that aren't working, please let us know!

Thanks for reading,
