1. Editor's Note

Wow - what a great vacation. My wife and I loved Barbados. We've been to a number of locations in the Caribbean and Mexico, but this was our favorite so far. And we had some interesting sporting experiences: we took surfing lessons, swam with sea turtles, snorkeled, and went to a cricket match with some new British friends who were cricket fans and explained the sport to us. And, for those cricket fans out there, Sir Garfield Sobers was in the stadium suite with us. He's one of the all-time cricket greats (there's a statue of him outside the stadium).

But, back to the old grind. Here are the articles that have been added to the website in the past two weeks. They include lots of free content, as does the rest of the PE update website.

Of course, those of you who are PE Update.com members have access to 1800 additional articles in our archives! To join PE Update.com, Click Here!
