    I can't believe how long ago 2002 was these days. I had never touched a computer in my life then, and it had already been a year since 9/11 and Dale Earnhardt being killed. Now I am an Adobe expert, and a computer whizboy if I have to be. Congrats.

    65,000 now.... And I thought @ the beginning how is a site from NZ going to make its name in NA.? As usual I was WRONG. Not the first or last time. Always checked back because of from the quote from AA (my GOD) Congrats Sean & APUG.

    Since coming here, I've looked on a map of New Zealand, the base of this site. A country no bigger than the outer banks of NC, with 2 cities probably no bigger than Charlotte NC--Christchurch and Auckland, I believe. Yet they seem to have a well-enlightened and orderly culture. I've tried to imagine what they don't have there in the way of decadence or extravagance, due to the isolation and lesser population of the US. It is probably a very good place to live in the quality-of-life category. I would think that crime and urban problems are non-existent. Probably a totally different life than the US in ways we cannot conceive. There's certainly no sleigh-bells at Christmas there, and their water goes down the drain backwards from here. But somebody there has managed to put together a pretty fair photographic learning site.

    It is because of their hobbits.

    Well done Sean (again).

    Likewise......hobbits are always thinking about the next roll [and curling up with some nice sheets]...
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
