Believe it or not, this is the beginning of another year and my New Year's Resolution is to try to go full speed ahead but must admit my speed is almost at a standstill.

I thought I was going at a fast clip and was planning to take the week of Nov. 2nd off. Then, in order to get this issue out by Dec. 1, I had to have all material to Uncle Jake by Nov. 4. I'm still taking the week off, but it means I must work several double shifts to get everything ready.

We appreciate those little notes some of you write on your renewal notices. For instance, Mr. James M. Barnhart, Orlando, Florida, wrote, 'Yes, indeed, we did like the past issues both for the past year, and for the past 25 years.

Please convey to the Rev. Elmer my regards both for him and for his magazine.' Thanks, Mr. Barnhart, and all others who have enjoyed reading our magazine.

Since I'm about ready to go on vacation, I'm not going to write too much for you to read, but I hope to be able to write more in the coming issues.

Have a nice Holiday Season and spread some cheer!!
