Nice suggestion . Thanks . I am expecting so many replies that I would prefer to read it . I think we may end up with too many pins in one concentrated
Area . Also I wouldn't know how to
Post one of those pin ups .

You really shouldn't encourage us like this--the mods will have to get busy policing all the pin ups.
