and you will see simple instructions.

unsubscribe, that is now easier than before.

First, if you encounter something you think I might enjoy sharing,
please forward it to me. I'd love to hear from you.
And, second, if you know of anyone else who might appreciate receiving
Snippets, forward a copy to them so that they can subscribe.
