Since I never log out, I logged out and back in again, just for kicks and giggles. I got the screen to sign up for the newsletter, which I did but then it made me sign in again before it let me in. Odd, isn't it or is that what it always does? Anyway, I assume I'm signed up for the newsletter, but I also checked my account and the box by "Send me the MH newsletter" is checked also, so I should be good to go.
Will look forward to getting the first newsletter.
