Proverbs 25:11


I almost decided to take my site out tonight but I just could not bring myself to do it...Something told me to stay on and face the challenges... I may regret this decision, but I have worked much too hard to give up my site..

Life is full of obstacles no matter where we go and we can't avoid them...I will miss the friends that left but I understand your choice.

    This is a beautiful photo of the Goldfinch! As usual, you have nailed bird photography, this bird is in perfect focus with a wonderful complimentary background with a great DOF : )

    This is beautiful. I AM so glad you stayed, Andrea! I will adopt your statement...Yes, you are right, life is full of obstacle and temptations, but the friends that I met here is more valuable that anything.

    A beautiful capture of this beautiful bird! I agree with Ann. Your bird photography is fabulous. I hope you will be able to see JPG emerge into a safe place again. If it were not for my grandchildren playing on the computer, I would stand with you. I just cannot "choose" a site that condones pornography.

    What a gorgeous capture, Andrea! I am here for a while, too--not because I like or approve of what JPG has become. I have obligations to new newspaper affiliations, so must remain for a while. I'm happy to still see friends here.

    Gorgeous shot! I feel the same way you do - I hate to bail out now, but at the same time I really hate what's happening to this site.
