Thank you one and all for the kind posts and PM's on this portfolio. Aside from a couple of typos, that are my fault I could not be more pleased. My thanks to the grand fellow Jean-Luc. Folks he spent 2 hours of his own time to help format these images and files for your viewing. He has been helping me with the typos as well so my hat's off to him too.
