Hello, and welcome to the  issue of the bulletin. On these pages you will find a bit of everything. From taco sauce to rainbow cake, from banana bread to potpourri. I'm sure you'll find many enjoyable recipes.

A special and sincere thanks to all who filled the WMT broadcast tent during our broadcast of the Open Line at Seminole Valley Park's Pioneer Village on August 1st. The weather was very hot, but not quite enough to fry an egg in a skillet we set out in the sun. It was gratifying to see so many old and new friends and to share the fun with all of you both in person and on the radio. It's a day yours truly will remember always. Thanks again. Now enjoy the latest and best of the Open Line!
