New e-Mail Address for Randy Mayeux

Like me, you may have had e-Mails bounce back when you sent a message to Randy Mayeux at Creative Communication Network the last few days.

That is because the hosting company is out of business.  Check his new e-Mail in the message he sent below:


Hi, all,

My old (decades old!) e-mail address, , is now no longer. The company sold; the old address no longer valid.  It feels like a disaster!

From now on, use this e-mail address:
