Well, I know which entry is my favorite from the October PUG! Kihei Beach, by Bruce Dayton, is just what I needed to see on a very frustrating afternoon. Besides being a very good photograph, it depicts my favorite place in the entire world, and the spot I'd most like to be right now. My

I don't doubt that they will come out with these products eventually, it's just that they will miss the moment when they would be exciting, state-of-the-art innovations, and wait until they are nice, but no better than a lot of products the competition came out with 2 years earlier. tom wrote:

Some people crave attention. If you respond to their untoward remarks, it just encourages them. I find that if I ignore people who are rude or obscene, they get tired of talking to themselves and stop a lot sooner than if I object or try to correct their behavior. Dan
