They were at it again Friday, rain or shine.

(Why on earth is she sending out her newsletter on Saturday, of all days? I’ll tell you why: Testing! Testing! Testing! Research shows Saturday is a wildly successful day for email marketing. So I say, “Prove it!” I’ll let you know the results.)

So be sure to scroll down to the end! ~ Marcia
