Hi Carmela: I just want to thank you or all the work you have been doing with the CyberNews newsletter. It sure is a good way for those of us who are away from home (Panama) to keep up with what’s happening back there.

Exciting February 1 edition, Carmela. I love the new segment of persons seeking partners, but I am disappointed that there weren’t more men responding. I also had a good laugh at the pronunciation of the Spanish pronunciation of words. Keep up the excellent work.
