Home Page

I like the new picture on the home page. Looks more Christmassy to me! Of course I don't know how new it is I haven't been here in a while. Shame on me.

Thanks Jeff for the work you do.

That's a special picture of SC, one of our forum partners (he operates Clausnet), and one of his great fans. It was used on the cover of a magazine feature he was in last year. When I saw the image I just knew we had to use it!

I agree...I LOVE the Christmassy look of our home page! I hardly ever see it because I usually just directly link to the forums but it's nice to be reminded to have a look around once in a while!

I agree Sunshine. The homepage picture is great! And I have to remember to look now and again to because when I log in I go straight here to the forums.

Yeah, there's a whole site here that people miss.

Actually, let me rephrase that. We have two kinds of visitors -- those who go to the forums and call it home. They tend to ignore the rest of the site. And then there are those who visit the site and never participate in the forums.

Try as I might to bring these two together the truth is that really only about 1 in 20 visitors to the site ever registers to participate in the forums...

A quick note on that picture.I was featured in Rhode Island Magazine. That picture wasn't used on the cover. Below is the actual photo used and article.

The picture with Rose was done after the photo shoot. Rose, who is 92 in that picture, was the Art Director's mother. I absolutely adored Rose! She was full of energy and sharp as a tack! We had a very long conversation before and after the photo shoot about all sorts of topics.

I love meeting with older folks -- especially as Santa. I sometimes think I enjoy meeting with seniors at Christmas time more than the children. The seniors are just as delighted to meet me as the kids!
