Thread Starter 
I haven't got it yet - should I be concerned? I've received all of the other months and at really good time. I think I got July's the last week in June.

I hope it comes!!!

The last couple of months I've gotten mine within the first couple days of the month, but not this month. I still haven't gotten mine. I feel like I'm stalking the mail box waiting for it. And now seeing the preview for next month just makes me more aware that I'm still waiting for my August issue. Hope it gets here before the weekend is over.

I don't have a subscription but I looked at the preview and there is a glaring typo on the cover! icon_eek.gif

I see two typos. There should be no apostrophe in Pikes Peak. And they didn't capitalize America.

they are not actually typos. The capitalization is stylistic, there is intentionally no capitals in that subtext.

The apostrophe was actually debated internally quite a bit as it is even inconsistent across multiple government websites. We could not determine which format is technically correct.

I have my magazine. I received it. It is worth waiting. Every issue of the cake central magazine is worth waiting.

Thanks again Heath and Jackie for publishing a beautiful magazine.

Not to be too pedantic, since I don't claim to use perfect grammar myself, but the rule is that apostrophes are never used in the names of geographic places. This was decided in the late 1800s when the government established the US Board on Geographic Names to establish some standards to naming places.

Originally the peak was called "Pike's Peak", but the board's decision caused the official name to become "Pikes Peak". In addition, in 1978 the Colorado state legislature passed a law mandating the use of "Pikes Peak" only. Not sure which websites you looked at, but both the official Pikes Peak website and the government's National Park Services website show this spelling consistently.

I was so distracted by the apostrophe that I didn't even notice the A! icon_lol.gif And I'm known as the eagle-eyed proofreader at work!

OK, Heath, I'll give you the stylization on the A icon_smile.gif and I was going to say this...

...but artscallion has already done a fabulous job of it.

A bit of Pikes Peak trivia...did you all know that Zebulon Pike never actually climbed Pikes Peak?

I received my August issue. It is worth waiting.

I read my magazine on my coffee break at work. It is a great conversation piece.

One of the guys at work is taking Wilton cake decorating classes so he can bake a cake for his fiancee and propose to her next month in September.

Just got mine today. I'm soooo happy because one of my cakes is in the magazine! I hadn't heard if my pictures would be published or not. What a great surprise! Happy happy day! icon_lol.gif
