I Used To Believe newsletter: July 2005

Hi,

Everyone's a bit morbid this month - we advise you to avoid mosquitoes and not to build pyramids. Don't forget the tin opener if you're going to a funeral, or the hair dye if it's your own. Check the website at http://www.iusedtobelieve.com for more!

Have fun,

Mat.
