That was until the past few years when I felt the magazine had fallen into a rut. My son and I both agreed that each issue had become a carbon copy of the preceding issue. We both lost interest in the articles and as a result I dropped my subscription two years ago. I only recently renewed my subscription and it was good to see the promise of new, more interesting articles and a magazine that is more alive.
