    Greetings from the Editor
    by Carol Hall

    Greetings to all of you and I wish you a most wonderful February! I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp. You will notice a few differences in the layout this month. We have changed the format to allow you quick and easy access to the articles that interest you, as well as allowing it to load faster when you open it. If you prefer the previous style, however, that too is still available. Just click on the "printable version" link.

    I have received numerous requests asking that the "solution" to the previous month's puzzles be published in the newsletter. Please know that we are working on this for you!

    As always, I welcome your comments and additions to the newsletter! Please email me at editor@bmi.net

    It always seems to happen. You have a medical problem when the doctor's office is closed. Getting help for your symptoms on-line (in the middle of the night) is so helpful. You may still need to see a doctor, but at least you may find out what's wrong or maybe even find some over the counter remedies.

    "Why are there only 28 days in February?" Is it because it comes at such a dreary time of the year and we want to get through it as quick as possible? Did it lose a day to another month? Can we only take so much love (Valentines Day!!)?

    Hmmm! Well if the truth be known, all of these reasons have been proposed. Allow ...
