  1. Noel,

    Under your new format for the newsletter, this article on wrecks in Indonesia is the only one I’ve been able to access. I realize most of the world belongs to one or more social websites, and so can access the articles you present, but there are plenty of others like me who view Facebook etc. as the work of the devil…please give us links to open the articles directly, the way you used to do. Thanks
