You mean it has that Donny and Marie Osmond song that Donn likes to sing:

He's a little bit shiny, I'm a little bit rust and droll? :D :D :D :D

Shouldn't the magazine just be identified by issue number rather than month(s)?

Snow, sleet, hail and a winter blizzard in Phoenix.

Just remember ... it's a dry sleet.

I still think it would be better to name the issues like "#174 Winter 2013," #175 Winter/Spring 2013," #176 Spring 2013," #177 Spring/Summer 2013," etc.

They have to do months for store distribution. That still doesnt explain why mine is this late. I emailed GBP. I will call Monday as well.

Please explain. Plenty of magazines handle their designations the way I described, and the issue number should be specific enough. My suggestion is simply to give a little more leeway in the minds of subscribers.

It was explained that way in a thread like this some time ago. It has something to do with the bar code or something. I'd like just to see the issue number and skip the monthly designation. Maybe Harry can shed a bit more light on it.

Yep. I know. Same bs every issue, and they wonder why subscriptions do not increase. If your new car was not delivered in a timely manner, or say you bought someting at a store, and they said you gotta wait 3 more weeks, you wouldn't like it, yet that is what happens with MCM.

True. But, if the issues were numbered, many posters would have nothing to beeeeeeatch about.

Says the man who got his issue a week or more before some of the other subscribers. I see nothing wrong with stating dissatisfaction with a service they paid for.
