Hello All and welcome to Tuesday. What are your plans for today and the rest of the week? Anything exciting?

As for me, I have news for you today that I hope you like and support.

This newsletter as of next week will be going to a once a week publication. At this time it seems to be the right decision after speaking to a few friends and mentors. I know as for me I enjoy when a newsletter is once a week so I thought others would like that also.

This will also be the last week that I post the newsletter on the publication It’s All Mishegoss on Medium. It seems counter productive to post here and cross post there. I could be wrong, but I want to see how it works out.

These two ideas are trials. Nothing is ever in stone in the world of Mishegoss, but I hope you will support these current changes and go with the flow. I know I’m going to try.

As for the newsletter today, it’s all here in its glory ready for you to check out, click on the links and read. You’re welcome to comment also on the publication page or to me personally at

Thanks for supporting me and my work, and have a great Tuesday.
