Actually pretty much everything you "divulged" was either partially or wholly 
untrue, or spindoctored into fantasy.  You didn't even manage to get the 
county I live in right.  You gave me a good laugh as usual.

<<The animosity between Jay and myself on the Leica forum is well
known among regular forum visitors.  I do not wish to duplicate the
animosity here on the LUG.>>
Then don't.  It's a completely one-sided animosity, I've never done anything 
but publicly praise your abilities to make much better bird photos with your 
ancient equipment than I am capable of despite using the same gear almost every 
top wildlife pro uses--it truly goes to show that the camera is more 
important to the photographer than the photograph.
  <<At the same time when I seen a post I disagree
with I will offer my opinion even if it offends Jay.>>
I am never offended by anyone's opinion, and I try to be compassionate 
regarding the pathology behind the way some people have to serve up their opinions 
with a dollop of personal attack...but being human sometimes I run out of other 
cheeks to turn.  For that I apologize in advance.
