Ginny, I'm sorry you had issues getting to the site. Most likey it was a net issue local to you, as the site was not down and others could reach it.

Thank Cheryl, as I say before it was madding to see people getting realy close to it and not be able to respond. Yahoo the site I use for my e-mail had been have some problems I do not what it was making muck up and still is making me steamed. Also I found out that updated has been runing well either.

I could see that. via my e-mail. I trying several angles before e-mail you.
Sorry about ramble but I am still some not at any one here just with our local provider. "sigh"

On the upside I found a few sites related to Anne and Pern.

Hans, I realise the Miami Dolphins is a little too south but local baseball teams in that area can also be named after major baseball league teams. They do the same for football, which we have in Australia, as an example my local football team is named after the Brisbane Lions, previously they went for Richmond Tigers until they changed leagues.

Look for the stickied thread in this special forum Dragonman.

Everybody can join in guessing and also in posting the picture, For that last though, you will have to wait your turn. First post in stickied thread will show you how many people you have before you. If you want to join in posting, just post in that thread asking to be put on the list.

The picture can be anything as long as it is somewhere in the world (within reason of course, don't present a pic from something under your bed or in your neighbour's shed )

Hm, the only thing I got was the Louvre that way! Course, I used my brother's default search engine instead of Google.. that might have done it.
