"Seasons of Love"
Wow! Our 40th issue! Geez time flies! Anyway, we hope you enjoy this issue but before we get onto the fun stuff Jenni has an announcement:
After a long hiatus the JABB birthday cards are back! I got a new program to make them and some of you might remember I tried sending them as attachments. Well, that didn't work well at all so it's now on a webpage. The cards will start going out in March. If you haven't sent in your birth date feel free to send it to me, Jenni. Also, I put all the birth dates I have onto my calender and I hope I didn't lose any but if your birthday passes and you don't get a card please just email me and let me know. Thanks!

A Special President's Day Poem
If Andrew could be president for the day
The country would be better in every possible way.
The sweet serenity of an angel from above
might actually fill this country with a labor of love
He'd look his fellow citizens in the eye
and tell them not to fear and not to cry.
"This country's good, it's moving right
we just have to keep fighting the good fight
We must tell the whole truth and nothing but
to fling this country out of its rut!
I have great expectations for such a time as this
And will carry them out to achieve bliss."
He'd serve God and Country with great pride
proving all presidents have a Hero deep inside
Andrew for President if only for a day
Could you now imagine it any other way?
