Reader’s Digest …..

…. your friend and mine ….

I mentioned before that after returning more than 30 letters from our friend, marked “Remove my name from your mailing list”, I had put my name down on the Australian Direct Marketing Association’s web site for no more mail from them.

Good Grief – my relationship with Readers digest has at last ended! I think I might miss them …. 😉

  2. Gosh don’t give them my address ;D
