"I was impressed with the content, balance and presentation of the newsletter. I like the image and mix - it is really refreshing to receive something in your inbox that has a "slice of humour" included in it - when you're head down buried in info it's always good to get something that puts a smile back on your face. I like the balance of the info you share - not too heavy, and things are tackled in good bite sized chunks..." Mark Jones, PG Wrightson, Christchurch, NZ
