Space limitations prevent us from posting ALL the photos we receive each week. We try to mix 'em up a bit and add those in which commentary can be added. We hope ya'll understand and if you don't, oh well. If you have a gripe then you'll have to deal with the lovely Anne Hinga (and she is lovely) as she handles the complaint department as well as anybody ever has - (she won't return your e-mails...). Enjoy.
