Why?

Half the reason that I created this site was to keep my family and friends aware of what we have been doing. The second reason was to have the site act as my personal photo album. Since then, it has assumed a life of its own. I get emails on a semi-regular basis making requests and one of the frequent requests was to do another page with past cover photos. Here it is. Enjoy.
