I'm thinking since Sharon is studiously ignoring this thread that it must be her pictures being used  :evil:

Face it Johnny You'd be bragging in every post you made.   :-D  But I think nothing has been said due to a prior to publication release restriction agreement.

That had crossed my mind.  Cindi is my guess.  Anyone starting a pool for this?

I'm thinking LindT from Georgia. Everything she does has been exceptional....

The winner is obviously enjoying their all expenses paid trip to an exotic isle as the winner!!!

That's a good guess too.  She had slipped off my radar and does a lot of camera work on her blog.

I think that Brian B. is right, it is a release restriction, awaiting until the book is published. There are lots of stupid loophills in laws.

BTW.  It was not me, I didn't enter any pictures to Howland for his picture choice for his book.  The mystery thickens, now, who sent their pictures to Howland?  (female, they say, hee, hee).  Beautiful day, greatest of life, health.  Cindi

I'm complimented that anyone would think it was me, but I didn't even know about the contest, much less enter it!  Can't wait to find out who it is - wonder if it is Becky from Colorado - her pictures are BEAUTIFUL (2wheeler, I think is her name on this forum.)

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
