Gloom & Gleam Newsletter: April 2010

From your Editors

Spring has sprung. It’s time for us rabbits to get out and get busy. Blogger has introduced some new templates and features, like pages and photo captions, so this may be a good time to dust off your rabbit hole and redecorate the place with a fresh look and new posts. Stop by and check it out. [read the 3/11 post].

We hope that you like the newsletter now appearing as a post instead of an attachment in email.
