But too much of it might hurt you

It was becoming utterly ridiculous. Of late, every time I came back to Buttonhole I'd be off again soon after. So, I've taken a different approach this time around. Rather than getting stuck into it all again as soon as I felt better, I waited. I figured that, maybe, if I allowed myself time to rest & really let my health improve, I might get a better/longer run. Let the batteries charge up fully, instead of continually trying to operate on low power. That was my theory. We'll see how it goes, but I sincerely believe I have a much better shot at sticking around for a lot longer this time!
My latest medication/treatment seems to be helping a lot. I've felt better for a few days in a row and now that I've built up a good reserve of energy, I am feeling extremely positive about things all around. Even my little daily exercise routine no longer leaves me exhausted (I'm no Hulkster, but I need to do some physical activities, otherwise - with my lifestyle of sitting around playing videogames - I could easily wind up looking like The Simpson's Comic Book Guy). After all these false starts, my saying we are back in business has become something of a joke. But, as Claude from Along Came Polly would say, "look to me in my eyeball", as I say this one more time (with a straight face, even!): Buttonhole IS back in business! You're looking at the new and improved Sammy. I don't intend to bugger off again any time soon. Unless I get hit by three trucks in a row. Thanks again for all of your patience and support.
Thanks also to those who wrote to wish me well. All one of you. I'm just kidding; most people didn't even know I was sick. I truly have had some good emails from readers lately though. It shows me you are paying attention when you send questions about our articles and that sort of thing, so I welcome that. I always try to reply and answer any queries as best I can and love hearing your thoughts, please keep 'em coming.
I just want to say a quick thanks to the Gimmick, for the footy tipping contest he's been running on our Forums (and to Fazz, as always, for running the message boards for us). I always like to see the Buttonholers getting together for things like that. Some folks will be getting some nice free gear for joining in on that action too. Maybe, if the masked one does this again next year, more readers will join in with his footy tipping mayhem. After all, there's nothing to lose from taking a shot at it.
As far as what new content you can expect, it is just what I promised in my last Editorial, only this time I'm telling the truth! I'll be posting new stuff daily again now, so you'll be able to check it out for yourselves (finally!).
