PLEASE, please, please! 
Us! ...  So we can respond more quickly and appropriately to your messages.
IMPORTANT NOTE   Because of the excessive amount of spam which we are receiving in e-mail, we need you to place the letters PH at the start of the subject line of your e-mail messages. If you leave that off ... we may accidentally delete your e-mail before even reading it!  Sorry. But this is driving us (and nearly everybody else) nuts!  Thanks for understanding.  PHL
Because this website is national and because so many people visit the site every day, the volume of mail we receive is becoming almost overwhelming. We always gratefully welcome your correspondence!
The POORHOUSE STORY could not exist without the generous sharing of information by readers who contribute their suggestions and material.  But we need to ask you to do some things with your e-mail which will help us handle it more accurately and efficiently.  There are really only 3 simple rules. We will very much appreciate it if you will please take the time to read them and think about how to follow them. Thanks!   PHL
1.  Tell us the STATE and the COUNTY to which you are referring. 
    (We can't read your mind! And if you forget, we will need to contact you again.)
2.  Use the SUBJECT LINE to let us know fairly specifically what you are writing about.
     But put
PH at the very beginning. (See above.)
     This helps us organize material more accurately and helps to assure that we will make the most appropriate
     response to it. Then it can help us file your material more accurately for future reference.
3.  After the first time you write to us ... please ATTACH the last 1 or 2 of our previous e-mails.
     (You can do that fairly easily by finding the most recent ...or the most relevant...note and using the
     REPLY button to start a new e-mail form ... which will usually then have our previous notes at the bottom.
     Feel free to change the Subject Line if you are changing the subject to something new.
NOTE: A message written in ALL CAPS is hard to read, as is one written with no caps and no punctuation. Equally difficult are messages   in italics   or    fancy fonts.     Please help us respond to your e-mail more quickly by sending it written in a way that is easy to read.  Thanks.
Now ...

Please send e-mail to       phlady@austin.rr.com
 We are looking forward to hearing from you!
