Happy New Role 2012!
I met someone the other day who told me that they were pretty impressed about how AngelNews has reinvented itself over the last five years to serve better the wants and needs of people in our community.
What a compliment, but we stay loyal to our roots, even as we expand into new areas.
This is the 89th edition of the AngelNewsletter Online. I sent the first newsletter out in summer 2003, over 8 years ago. In those days I just typed it in Outlook and blind copied it to all recipients. Look at this issue and you will see how far we have come. But we continue to do our utmost to make the content as relevant for you today as it was for you and others then.
This month read:

All the best

Greater regulation is required in the rental market to ensure that all letting agents are professional, according to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).

An American manufacturer is showing his machine factory to a potential customer from Albania. At noon, when the lunch whistle blows, two thousand men and women immediately stop work and leave the building.
"Your workers, they're escaping!" cries the visitor. "You've got to stop them."
"Don't worry, they'll be back," says the American. And indeed, at exactly one o'clock the whistle blows again, and all the workers return from their break.
When the tour is over, the manufacturer turns to his guest and says, "Well, now, which of these machines would you like to order?"
"Forget the machines," says the visitor. "How much do you want for that whistle?"
