    Subject: Being brave does not mean that you are not sometimes afraid.
    First the opinion, and then the news:
    brave does not mean that you are not sometimes afraid.Never have I
    received so much response to an email missive than the last one, which
    bemoaned the sad state of affairs we all must endure.  Our parents and
    grandparents worked hard and succeeded and so can we.  The bigger the
    challenge, the greater should be our determination. Sure it’s a crappy
    market, but we’re still in the game, chomping at the bit, ready to go. 
    It’s not over until we give up. When times are quiet, we can either
    stand up taller and reinvigorate ourselves, or we can wilt.  What do
    you choose?

    This morning I left the house and had just
    finished locking the door behind me, when I realized that I had
    forgotten something inside.  When I reopened the door and went inside,
    my dog, Sonny, was jumping and tail-wagging with excitement as if I had
    been gone all day.  Sometimes we can all be a bit like Sonny.  We get
    so involved with our day to day issues that we forget that we live in a
    cyclical economy.  When things are trending down, we forget that it
    will come back, as it always has.  When we are busy and things are
    trending up, we forget that that too will change.We do all we can to
    cut the expenses and streamline our process, but there has come a point
    at which we have to make serious and sober choices.  After having have
    retrenched and recharged, with clear eyes and focused determination, we
    rededicate ourselves to drawing on our courage and good name to carry
    forward through the anxious times. I know of few industries that have
    been unbruised by the economy. It is the brave and the proud that stand
    against the wind.  So, with the strength of our reputation,
    conservative financial position, and eager anticipation, we reaffirm
    ourselves to carry on– aggressively, honestly, and humbly.

    your chin up.  Be focused, and remember that the measure of character
    is not getting over the tough times, but rather getting through them. 
    Feeling sorry for yourself changes nothing and negative affects
    everything around you.  Choose to be positive and optimistic.  Not
    Pollyanna, but brave and strong.In every downturn there is always
    someone who profits.  Consider this a buying opportunity.

    Solutions Company extends its continuous-forms laser printer portfolio
    with new entry-level models InfoPrint 100 and InfoPrint 75.  Finally
    something to offer clients in the middle market. The troublesome IP62
    can now be replaced without moving up into huge machines or down to
    “toy” machines.  Haven’t seen prices yet, as it isn’t due until fall
    2008, but I suspect it to be aggressive, as InfoPrint Solutions has
    been very focused on market share growth.

    black instead of beige.  The shape is odd and maybe familiar to those
    whom have bought machines from other vendors who had used the same
    Compuprint engines.  You may also want to consider the Printek or Tally
