    Best bang for my advertising buck.  I know The Perkolator is read all the time by the people I want to reach.  I see people reading it everywhere I go.  There's nothing else out there that gets the exposure for my business for such a low cost.

    Why, when I’m already a subscriber must the pop up SUBSCRIBE for double your pleasure pop up in the first place? Oh, I just realized, you can’t have pop ups in your printed newsletter.
    Silly me.

      As well. Without being “logged into” a website, there’s no way for it to determine who you are. SO it displays for everyone 🙂

    Every now and then, when a particular written word moves me, I take a snapshot of it and tuck it away in my ‘Lessons Learned’ file. This edition of ‘BG’s Positively Speaking’ titled “I Can Hear You” is one of them. Thanks for your continuing words of wisdom. Always much appreciated!

    WELL DONE !
    The May 1st edition was the best I’ve read since becoming a follower. Positively Speaking……logical and smack on, the quiz, difficult but for the first time ever I’m 8 for 8! The bog island vid…who’d a thunk?
    I can’t be all positive though.
    The sand which board with I b4 e was a tough one for my aging eyes.
    Lastly, could your font be slightly larger with the adds just a wee bit smaller.
    So many magazines, internet articles, etc have yet to learn that their main audience is aging and eyes are not what they were of days past.
    Keep up the good work.
    PS: Adds work. I’ve used more than one company you’ve listed with total satisfaction (politicians excepted)

      Hi Dave. Firstly thanks so much for the comments. I’m not the writer of this stuff just the web guy. While reading anything that you find is too small on the internet generally all you need to do is hit your Control and the plus key or minus key together to increase or decrease the size of things. I’m afraid if we reduce the ads any smaller they won’t be readable and of course it’s due to their investment in the Perkolator that the publication can actually exist 🙂 Happy Spring.
