Hi you guys - Bill may we have a round of everyone's drink of choice? Although I haven't been as active as usual around the halls of Serious Compacts, I wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here in spirit the same as ever. That said, there's a lot more going on in my day to day life than usual and I need to step back even more... My family may be moving, and as you all know that requires quite a bit of energy. After talking it over with Amin, Bill and Mark, I've decided it's best for me to hand in my Administrator badge for now. Who knows what the future holds...if the move happens, and we're settled I may come back on as one of the team. However, no matter what, I shall always remain a devoted SC member. How could I not?! Some of us have known each other for almost what...three years? Or is it more? From my first venture onto Mu43 and being welcomed by the kindness, helpfulness and encouragement of Amin, Don and Brian Mosely...to the rise of Serious Compacts from its slumbers... This virtual world of fellow photographers has become much more than that, because many of us have actually become real friends. By stepping down from my administrative duties, I shall now be able to assuage my guilt and, perhaps, even find the time to post a few pictures more often? I promise that if the move works out, I'll be boring you all with the beauty of where we hope to move to. So...everyone belly up to the bar as the drinks are on the house! Final perk as an Admin, you know.
