Comments Require Review

As a reminder, you can comment for 30 days after a post is made.  All of the comments on this blog have to be reviewed before they appear on this site.  Unless you state your desire to the contrary, your email address will not be published on this site if you send a note to me or comment on a post.

Discussion, feedback, and comments are welcome as long as they are relevant and insightful. I reserve the right to edit, as appropriate, and to delete harassing, profane, vulgar, obscene, abusive, irrelevant, or spam comments.  If necessary, repeat offenders will be blocked.

Each response is reviewed as quickly as possible, but I can’t guarantee that your reply will be reviewed as promptly as you might like.  As you would expect, I am the sole arbiter of what is appropriate for this website.  Thanks in advance for your understanding and appreciation of my intent in this matter.

As always, thanks for your continued support!


Pictures in Website Text Follow-up

On October, 2017, I published a blog about photos in the text of this website.  Since I asked for your thoughts on that topic, I’ve received comments running the gamut from the extremely well thought-out to flippant and obscene.

Based on what I shared with me, it seems that you can take or leave photos in the text of this website.  It’s not a burning question that touches on a key issue for many of you.

With that in mind, I’ll use my judgment (if I can find where I misplaced it) when it comes to including images in the text of this site.

If you’d like to comment on this, or anything else, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Interest in Photo Workshops

Over the past few years, we’ve gotten together for a number of photo workshops.  When this idea came to mind, it was based on comments and suggestions that I heard from a number of followers of this site.

With that in mind, I need your help.  Please contact me and let me know if you’d like to hold more photo workshops this year.  If the interest is there, we’ll hold some more workshops.  If the interest has waned, we’ll give it a rest and call it good.

I’ll report back to you on the comments and thoughts that you share with me in the months ahead.

If you’d like to comment on this or something else, germane to this website, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Happy New Year 2018

I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year at the start of what will undoubtedly be an eventful year.

I have no idea what will transpire in the days, weeks, and months ahead, but I know that things will not be boring!  I also know that you’ll keep me on my toes, you always do!

Happy New Year!  May the new year bring you joy, peace, and happiness.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Merry Christmas 2017

I thought I’d take a moment to wish each of you a Merry Christmas!

To be sure, this year was extremely eventful, more so than I anticipated when it dawned anew on January 1st.  Next year will, no doubt, hold more surprises, some good and some not so good, for us.  If we never experienced events that were less than we hoped, we wouldn’t know just how good, on a number of levels, we have it.

Thank you for all thoughts, ideas, comments, and friendships that you’ve shared with me over the past year in particular and through the years in general.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.

My best to you and yours.  Take a moment to consider the true meaning of this time of year, and then enjoy your family, your friends (new and old), and savor those special recollections and people who mean so much to you.

Foreign Language Comments

I’ve received some comments in foreign languages.  While I do speak (sort of ) some foreign languages, I need to ask a favor of those who want their comments posted on this website.  Please do your best to write your remarks in English.  If I have questions about your comment, we can talk about it.

If you send in a comment that I can’t read or understand, it won’t be published.  I’m not trying to be difficult, but I want to make sure that the comments that show up on my site don’t include material that doesn’t meet the guidelines that I had in mind when I started this small outpost in a corner of the internet.

If you’d like to share your thoughts, opinions, comments with me on this or any other topic, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

New Photos Posted

I thought I’d send a quick note to let you know that I posted some new photos.  Despite my best efforts to share the news, many of you already noticed that the pictures were available for viewing, before I created this post.

After all of the times that this has happened, you’d think I wouldn’t be surprised when it recurs.  But, I’m still fascinated by the quick responses that unannounced new posts or photos get from you.  I appreciate your comments and your well wishes for my efforts.

If you’d like to share your thoughts with me on this, or any other topic, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!

Signed Novels

I’ve received some requests to sign my novels.  I’d be happy to do that.  In order to make it happen, please contact me so that we can work out the logistics.  I don’t know what works for you, let alone what works for me in this arena.

If you have any thought on this topic that you’d like to share, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!
