Thank you my friend, I'm extremely flattered and honored by your kind and complimenting comments and critiques regarding my various shell, test, coral and sponge close ups, and please rest assured that I'm least interested in receiving smileys from my TN colleagues, I see them only as a symbol of a favourable comment, but of course the main issue is the comment itself, not the accompanying smiley. I am a real fan of your not-so-frequent postings in TN, but also must accept the fact that among my daily activities sometimes I miss some of them, together with those of my several other favourite member friends. When I have the necessary time I try to catch up by "backpedalling"...
THanks again my friend.
