Hello fans,

Before we get to today's issue, I want to wish you all a
Merry Christmas. Our offices are closed all next week, but
you'll still be getting an issue of WATN next week.

Hope you have a great holiday!

Today we're catching up with Karen Allen. I remember the 
first time I went to see Raider's of the Lost Ark. 

I was in High School and it was a rare treat that my older 
brother (six years) said let's go to the movies. Not too 
many guys in there 20's want to take their 'little' sister
to the movies. And my brother was no exception so that's
why it is something I'll always remember.

Anyway, the movie just blew me away and I ended up seeing
it a few more times... with friends and even my parents.

So let's find out what the spunky girl from Raiders is up
to now!

Be Well,

LOOSE LIPS: "I don't know if I've ever played a character who's 
close to me. There have been some elements of myself in different 
roles. Sometimes, I show one side of myself and then completely 
conceal the other." - Karen Allen

DRYER BALLS - The Natural Fabric Softener...
Going Green Has Never Been So Easy!

TV Price: $13.99
OUR PRICE: $7.99

Dryer Balls are the safe, natural, easy way to soften 
fabrics while saving money on fabric softeners, dryer 
sheets and energy. Best of all...There's No Chemicals!

The unique design relaxes the fibers during the drying 
cycle leaving clothes softer and towels more absorbent. 

As they tumble around in the dryer they lift and separate 
fabrics allowing air to flow more efficiently thus 
reducing drying time up to 25%. 

Use them over and over again and they last for years! Each 
package contains 2 Reusable, Non-Toxic Dryer Balls. Do
yourself and the environment a favor and grab a set. Visit:
