 is a wonderful free monthly e magazine...

 Now before you gloss over and think you can't access it, as you don't have an e reader of a Kindle or an iPad or tablet of any kind, if you're reading this, it's available to you... as a .pdf or  other versions or you can simply read online.

Some seem confused as to how to access it... you are given a link each month which will take you directly to the main page... ( see above) From there, click on the latest magazine cover and that will take you to this link... which I have provided for you...

 However if you do use the original link, you will also see access to all past editions... at the top or bottom of the page...

These are just some of this month's contents... Enjoy...
