Geek_Chic, thank you for your suggestions. I do not have a FB account. I do have another email address but never log into it; however, I went ahead and changed my email address for receiving the newsletters. I guess I will get those if and when I remember to sign in to the other email address. Which also means I will probably miss a lot of the Curlmart sales too. Oh well, just more moolah in my pocket.
I really would like to get email notifications of the threads I had subscribed to; otherwise, it's harder for me to keep track of threads I was interested in. This site just doesn't seem to work right for me anymore so I find myself logging in less and less. It just takes too much effort.
