Rare Occurrences

Did you notice that today's date is a progression of numbers? December 12, 2014 is 12/13/14, which I think is pretty cool in a trivial sort of way. It also is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. (This precise sequence won't happen for another 100 years.)

Speaking of things that only come by once in a great while, I wanted to remind you that the Word Terrific Tables e-books are on sale right now. (I mentioned these in last week's newsletter.) They will remain on sale for a few more days, with the 30% discount ending after Wednesday. After that, the e-books won't go back on sale for years.

Anyway, check it out before the opportunity is gone. You can find full information here:


Have a great week!
