In an effort to reduce the number of emails you get from SIRA, I have decided to ask you to let me know if you would prefer to receive future newsletters in plain text. If you really want to do this, please click here , or go to http://members.optushome.com.au/sira/plaintext.html and follow the on-screen instructions. You will need to be connected to the internet. If I don't hear from you, I will assume you like the colour and pictures.
Please Note: For this month ONLY you will get two copies of this newsletter. One will be in full colour with all the bells and whistles. The other in plain text for those of you who prefer it that way, or have no choice :) In future, you will get only ONE copy!
