    Hello to all of you in BMI land. As the holidays creep ever closer we are reminded of friends and family that live both far and near. In the computer age though, it doesn't seem to matter how close someone is, keeping in touch is a few key strokes away.

    No nasty tasting stamps and envelopes to worry about, just a few simple words to say "I'm thinking about you" to your friends and family. It's kind of a warming thought, isn't it? On the other hand, if you're like me, keeping in touch isn't exactly an easy thing to do. With four kids, and endless chores to do at home, the only time I really get in front of a computer is at work, and who has time for email? Well, personal email anyway.

    So for this months tech article I would like to share with you a couple of things you can do that are pretty easy, not very time consuming, and will keep you in touch with all your friends and family: Email greeting cards!

    Sounds easy enough, but as some of you know it can be hard to find one fitting enough to send. Also, some cost money and who wants to pay for something like that? Wouldn't you just run over to Wal-Mart if you were going to pay for a greeting card?

    That's where we come in. Just go to BMI Homepage, click on Rewards and use our free email greetings!

    The easiest thing to do, is send someone an email...even if you haven't talked to them in a long while. Just say something like: "Hey, I was just thinking about you, I hope you're doing well. Talk to you soon." A few kind words can go a long way. The hardest thing to do is find the time. But once you do, keeping in touch will no longer be something you say you will do, butdon't.

    Have fun out there in cyberspace everyone. Until next month, take care.
