    Greetings to all of you! I wish each of you a very merry and Blessed Christmas season!  My 10 wishes for you:

    1.  None of your holiday baking sets off the smoke alarm
    2.  The line at the post office is short
    3.  Your local mall reserves a parking spot...just for YOU
    4.  Your cat doesn't undecorate the tree daily
    5.  All your holiday lighting works...and continues to work through January
    6.  You made the grade and are on Santa's NICE list
    7.  The pine needles from your tree do not plug up the vacuum cleaner
    8.  You find all the presents you bought and stashed from last years After Christmas Sales
    9.  Your bargain basement scotch tape actually comes off the roll with ease
    10.  Most of all...that you, your family and your friends enjoy JOY, PEACE and LOVE together this season...and in the year to come.

    I hope you enjoy this month's issue of The On Ramp ...Merry Christmas!

    I welcome your comments and additions to the newsletter! Please email me at

    Where is the Newsletter
    by Rochelle Helms

    full story  | top

    I have answered several e-mails and live chats asking, "Where did the link for the Newsletter go?" Well, chances are if you are reading this you know how to find it already. But you can, however, share this with your BMI neighbors. Rest assured, the newsletter, crossword and word find are not discontinued. I will now give you two ways to find it.

    First, you can just type in the address bar, press enter,  and go directly to a listing of all newsletters, past and current.

    There is also a way to add On The Ramp (the newsletter) as a quick link on your fully customizable home page. Here's how:
    In your address bar, type . (Make sure you are logged in, it will show welcome and your email address.)
    Click on the link in gray where it says customize.
    Click on the link on the top right that says your favorites and weather.
    You will see to the right 1. Title And web address with a box. In the title box type Newsletter. In the web Address (url) field type in
    Click the bottom button that says click here to submit your changes.
    Click on Home Page.

    Now on your fully customizable home page you will see MyLinks: Newsletter along the top row of links (ie webmail, billing, etc) to the far right. And that, my BMI-ions, as they say, is that.

    And as always, if you have questions or concerns please contact us at 1-800-485-5006 or by emailing us at or contact us via Live Chat by clicking on the top right corner of the home page where it says Talk to BMI with a picture of a member of the BMI family.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Holiday Season!

    Hello everyone in BMI land!  Winter is now officially upon us, and the holidays have already started. I swear time didn't go this fast until after I got married. Or maybe I just wanted time to go by faster back then, as I had no one to enjoy the time with?
