CONCLUSION
As always, I've enjoyed putting this newsletter together.  With the assistance of my webmaster ( Lee ) I am able to present it to you every 2 weeks---FREE !!  I'm sure that you have noticed that in several of my articles in this newsletter that I have used the term "FREE" .  Of course I am trying to re-affirm to everyone that reads this newsletter that I request NOTHING from my readers---except contributions of articles or links.  No money exchanges hands and I don't ask for YOUR secret treasure sites.  Believe me when I say that I have PLENTY of leads to follow up on--- from my OWN files !  In fact:  earlier this week I mailed out a few packages of some pretty GOOD stuff from my private files---to people that wanted or NEEDED some good leads.  SO:  when I received a few emails from an individual last week saying nasty things about me, I decided to inform HIM of what I am doing here, through my newsletter, and that I am harming no one at all.  And if that wasn't bad enough, he then proceeded to "forward" his nasty emails and they got re-forwarded, etc !!  ALL lies, of course.  HE had received an email from a guy he DID NOT KNOW and this guy claimed that I had told the nasty email writer of his "secret" site !  So, ---the email writer took it as the truth ( but, he REALLY knew better ! ).  In MY defense, against his false allegations, I really wanted to print the three emails from him in THIS newsletter--- just to show the public how WRONG he is, but ( for NOW )---I'll hold off.  BUT:  if he attempts any more B.S. against me I'll issue a SPECIAL BULLETIN newsletter the SAME day to all 4,000 readers.  In that SPECIAL BULLETIN I'll print HIS 3 emails, plus anything new he writes ( to ANYONE ! ), HIS email address, home address, phone number, GPS to his house, cabin , and his favorite local landmarks and anything else I accumulate---and THEN you will see what kind of person this guy is !  I'll ALSO post his emails on every public forum I can locate.  I spend an average of 80 hours a week on this computer---so I have the time to deny his allegations.  He needs to get a LIFE, leave me ALONE, mind his OWN business, play NICE, and let me do my newsletter and websites in peace !  I am a nice guy, BUT:  if someone threatens me I'll fight back---harder and longer than they would ever imagine.  It will shock them and he will wish that he had never written me.  Well---ENOUGH about that ONE unhappy reader !
 
 
I sincerely hope that EACH of you ( and your families ) have ( or had ) a SAFE and GOOD Memorial Weekend !
 
DEDICATION
DEAR TARA,  Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary !!
