  1. I have subscried to your newsletter and for some reason EVERYTIME I go to my email the practice positions never show can you help me please get back to me thru email.

    • Hey Jay, Sorry to hear that you are having problems seeing the images. Are you using g-mail? That seems to have the most problems. There are a couple of things that you can try. One is to reply to me, which will add me to the “trusted addresses”, and then g-mail will allow the images by default. You may have to send me two e-mails to get on this list. The other things to try are to add me to your e-mail address book (Tim@tacticstime.com), and there might be settings regarding if images are allowed to be shown. Let me know if those help.
