I didn't want to believe it. I refused to believe it. But it is true. My favorite magazine for all these years . . . is no longer. Home Companion is unable to continue due to lack of advertisers. As Mary E. says "it's a vicious circle - housing is bad, companies can't advertise, magazines can't print." Soooo sad. I will hold onto my old copies even tighter! If the economy improves . . . Mary says Home Companion will be back . . . I hope so!!
