I love reading The Buzz! It always has something useful for me, who has only been using Raiser's Edge a little more than a year.

I totally agree on the worm holes! I've found so much information helpful out here that makes me go, “oh, yeah, I need to fix that!” Then I get side-tracked on what I really need to be working on. If only I could duplicate myself to get all these things accomplished in a regular day for me.

Happy Friday! Hope your weather is as gorgeous as it is here in the Greater Cincinnati area!

This is sooooo true for me! Every. Single. Day. “This is awesome”, I say. “Let me take care of that right now”, I say. And that leads to more finding and fixing! Triplicating ourselves might work even better! :))

Miki, Thank you for your kind words. Glad the Buzz is working for you. Happy Friday too!

@Miki Martin It has been absolutely lovely here in Charleston!
