Belated reaction...

I echo Sonny in his sentiments. My own PAWs date back to January 2001, 
so this is the fourth year for me. The whole exercise has been the best 
thing that has happened to my photography since I took it up as a hobby 
in 1985.

And looking at the pictures posted by people every week is like having a 
great photo exhibit right on my computer. As in a real exhibit, I like 
some pictures and dislike others, but it is always worth going to.

So a cheers to Kyle for suggesting it and putting up a template, which I 
still use.
