Good Morning, Friends

This was the headline of the first ever issue of the Majorca Daily Bulletin on 31 December 1962. After all these years, we've hauled that headline out to announce today's launch of the new, improved Bulletin website. Through August we'll be testing the system and adding to it. In the jargon, this is a "beta" version. By September, we'll be alpha, so to speak, and all systems go. Meantime, we would like to invite you to mark the auspicious occasion of the new Bulletin era by sharing with us your selfie with the new website on your computer screen. Please send it to us at Thank you and, once again, good morning, friends.
