I am back home from Petra

I am back home from Petra Jordan I will get my web site changed soon with the pictures I took this trip. It may take a few days as I took over 300 photos of the dig.

Thanks for all the e-mails and comments while I was gone.:heartbeat

I am working on the photos... I have a small problem in that my 10 mega pixle camera produces picture files that are huge - so I need to find a way to reduce them as my space on the web site is limited - its a free site.

Wow, a 10 mega pixel camera produces large image files? Whodda thunk?

But seriously, Larry, you can probably find a free graphics program that will help reduce image size, or buy a relatively cheap program to do it. I'm sure the good folks at AMCF can offer recommendations. Not that you can't ask here too, but there's a larger body of potential experts over there and most members here belong there anywho!
