It should have Cliff - have you upset your postman? I am putting a copy in the post to you this morning from East Yorkshire - first class!!! You will probably get your normal copy now.

Your very kind copy arrived this morning, Malcolm - many thanks. I will get the 'proper' copy back to you if and when it finally arrives.
The Quarterly arrived this morning, Malcolm ... a new record perhaps?I will return the original ... many thanks.
Think of someone who is susceptible to joining and give the extra copy to them as a sample - makes more sense - if of course you haven't posted it already - in which case thank you.
Will do, Malcolm ... excellent idea ... and thanks again.
Dear NARGS member,
LAUNCH of ROCK GARDEN QUARTERLY online
The world of publishing is undergoing the most dramatic changes since Gutenberg invented the printing press over 500 years ago. The Board of Directors of NARGS has recognized that we need to embrace this change, in line with our President's commitments at the last two Annual General Meetings.
The Rock Garden Quarterly is now into its 70th year and for all that time it's been changing to reflect the times, and to use new printing technology as it has become available.
So, now the Rock Garden Quarterly will be published in digital form as well as the traditional paper form--and members have access free. There will be an introduction to some of the features in the Summer issue of the Quarterly, but you can try the Spring issue right now on desktop, laptop, iPad, iPhone, etc: <http://www.nxtbook.com/allen/roga/70-2>
In the future, the digital edition will be available around the same date that members receive their mailed copy.
This is not a replacement for the printed Quarterly--this is a BONUS. From now on NARGS members will be able to access the Quarterly online and read it on their electronic device, as well as continuing to receive their printed issues as they do currently.
The launch of the Rock Garden Quarterly online is a great development for NARGS, and we really hope you'll enjoy it in this new extra format.
Remember the electronic version is a free extra to members - have your cake and eat it too!
And to give those who aren't members a view of what we're doing, the same link works for non-members too.
Very best wishes,Malcolm McGregorEditor, Rock Garden Quarterly
As an additional feature of hanging around on this Forum, you can access the online edition of our Quarterly Journal without being a NARGS member for at least the next month. So take advantage of the opportunity to see what NARGS membership can get you. Enjoy!
