This is my favorite part of the column, the place where I can talk about whatever is on my mind whether it’s about photography, politics, or even sources of irritation.  This week there is only one thing on my mind.  You.

I’ve updated our image galleries several times throughout the year bringing more features and better looking presentations.  Our blogs have been updated, we’ve added Exchange Rate and Weather information panels so you’re always up to date on the Thai Baht exchange rate and the most current weather, and unfortunately while we have great forum software installed it’s greatly under utilized.
