The State Park near Cookeville is Fall Creek Falls & has excellent camping and lodge facilities.  I stand corrected from our last letter.

The number of visitors from Macedonia has increased dramatically in the last 10 days.  I wonder who has been telling the locals about American barbecue?

We are still debugging the newsletter program, but the new system should remove some of you folks from all but one list; so you get only one email each time.  We have sent out some video footage attached to some emails to see how it reads on the receiving end, so we will know how it will look streamed from the site we will include in future letters.  Those folks who we know have high speed connections have received some of the video sized & compressed at various rates to get reactions. Thanks.
