Plus Edition Newsletter Has Been Sent

To all Plus Edition subscribers:

A notice of the latest EOGN Plus Edition newsletter was sent to you a few minutes ago. You will notice that this week’s email looks radically different from the previous Plus Edition email messages you have received. It is even different from last week’s (experimental) email message. I hope you will like the changes but, if not, please let me know.

Dick, if you haven’t already been there, Haarlem is only a few minutes train ride from Amsterdam. The Franz Hals museum there is absolutely stunning, and having lunch in the market square usually includes live music. Enjoy your trip!


    —> Dick, if you haven’t already been there,

    Thanks for thinking of me. However, I have been to the Netherlands a couple of times. On one business trip, I had a rental car for two weeks and drove all over the country on the weekends when I didn’t have to work. I haven’t been there for a while, however, and am looking forward to seeing the changes.
