We hope you all have a great Easter weekend and that you're excited as we are to see Spring arrive! We've put up our Easter games! Play Scrambled Eggs to test your memory, Eggscape to train your reflexes, or just enjoy an old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt. We've got free Easter e-greets for you to send too!

Lynn's Thailand travel journal was a hit; if you want to read all the messages and see the photos from her recent trip, visit our News Bites page. Links to all the entries are in the left sidebar. This month's photo (below) is a snapshot of some soap carvings available in the Thai market.

Lynn and Steph have just returned from Kansas City where they visited Universal Uclick, made plans for FBorFW and enjoyed visiting with Lynn's friends and colleagues at her syndicate.
