    When I receive the weekly update it doesn’t come through my email until much after the sent time frame. I had an update that came through today at 3:26pm but says it was sent at 5:12am.

      Sorry about that Sonya! We have modified the Feedburner email delivery so that it should reach subscribers between 7:00am – 9:00am Pacific time instead of the late afternoon. Thanks for the comment!
