I hope your week has gone well and you're
enjoying your weekend. Can you believe it's almost Halloween and soon...
UGH... it'll be Christmas! I shudder to think. I don't know about y'all,
but I wasn't done with summer yet! Guess it doesn't matter, it's done
Newsletter Mailings I've had some difficulty lately with the way Zinester has sent out
my email alerts to y'all about the news being posted. I have no way of
really knowing if everyone has gotten the notice and while tech support
says that 99% of you should have gotten it, they can't really tell for
sure either. There's 2 email announcements from last month that are
still sitting there as though they had never been sent out, yet I know
that a lot of you got those mailings, I can't tell if everyone did. So,
I've decided to resend them. IF you've already gotten them before, just
delete it and bear with me. If you didn't get it before, I'd like to
hear from you so I have some sort of number to feed to tech support..
and finally get them of the "post" board. Any questions or comments
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to get a little feedback if you find the time. I'm trying out
some new CD links from Amazon. Now... they do make the pages load a
little slower and I'm not sure how much of a headache that'll be for
most. I've got the feeling those of us who live here in the sticks are
the last ones still on a slower DSL connection. At any rate, I'd like to
know if you like the links better or if you prefer text or the older
graphic links. I do this for you to enjoy and to make it easy for you to
find the CDs you like... God knows I don't make enough money to pay for
the time it takes me to make any of the links.. so it's up to y'all.
What's your pleasure? Write me a

press release is not one that I enjoy sending but I am asking each
of you to take the minute that you read this email, to stop and ask
our Good Lord to bless and touch Porter Wagoner with his miraculous
hand to cure him of his lung cancer. I believe strongly in prayer
as each of you do, and I feel that it should be done now by all of
us. Thank you, and please also keep Porter's family in your prayers
and prayer lines.

wanted to like Gary Allan’s latest album, Living Hard. I’ve been
to more of his concerts than can be counted on one hand. I
thought his previous four albums were outstanding and I wanted
this one to be outstanding as well. But it didn’t work out that
way and I was disappointed. The consensus amongst everyone I had
spoken with about the album turned out to be the same. I should
have been prepared after the comments he made, describing the
album as having more edge than his previous, already edgy

MICHAEL McCALL For The Associated Press
As country music’s steely eyed tough

examines a man’s heart and motivations at an age where
responsibilities become impossible to ignore.
Allan’s new CD, Living Hard, is out this month. He tells CMT
Insider why the project was therapy for him, and in a rare

dealing with her suicide. Tune in Sat., Oct. 27 2:00 PM ET/PT.

do I. I highly recommend this CD for your collection! It's one of those "must
The neighbors complain that I'm too big to be coming to their doors
with my Trick or Treat bag. Too bad I don't drink anymore. Alcohol
really helped my Halloween enthusiasm.
Lately, if I dress up for the occasion, it's not in a regular costume...
It's just some flotsam and jetsam from the back of the closet. I hate it
when people ask me what I'm supposed to be.

"I am going to wear a costume to hand out tricks

I'm going to have to make do with half of one costume and half of
another, since money is tight. I have part of a "Grim Reaper" suit and
half of a duck outfit so I'm going as....... 'The Grim Duck'. Happy

I'm sure that hers will be better than our recent
