    Greetings From The Editor
    by Carol Hall

    Greetings to all of you! I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp and I look forward to hearing from you. .We had hoped to be able to include our new Sudoku puzzle in this edition...however, it has been delayed by a month. After much testing, we were not satisfied with the quality and look of the Sudoku puzzle we were going to use. We have now began testing a new program...and intend to include it starting in July. This however, allows you more time to hone up on your Sudoku skills to play and be entered in our monthly contest!

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