Hello, Diane.

Nice words those of yours. Thanks.

I have been in touch with Helen and can understand what she,
Louise and Christine are going through. I have kids (well, a 17-
year old girl and a 21-year old boy are still kids) of my own
and I wonder how would they work things out with the Brazilian
UFO Magazine when I am gone. I doubt they will be able to keep
it. It is not their life's project.

This very afternoon I just finished editing the April issue -
 #98. We are quickly getting to edition #100, after almost 20
years of hard - really hard - work. UFO #98 took 17 days,
14-16 hours per day, to get ready. It is indeed a very tiring
job. But it was worth every minute and every byte on my computer
to get to the final version.

In 2 weeks the edition will be out and spread all over Brazil,
in 2,200 news stand with aprint run of 44 thousand icopies.
Portugal will get 2,000. As in previous months, we will get
thousands of visits to our website and hundreds of messages. We
get an average of 8,000 hits per day and 200 messages.

It is exciting to do something that can be seen by thousands of
people. An average of 80 people contribute, one way or another,
to every edition, to get to the final product. It is exciting
that thousands of people will learn more about the UFO Phenomena
through this work. This is what counts. This is the real thing.


Keep it up,

A. J.
