Well the leaves are turning, the gardens are being prepped for winter and of course that also means time to re-vamp the website. A disadvantage to being married to a US military member is the cold hard fact that you move frequently and that can often put the brakes on any career efforts. Luckily, photography is in demand around the world and I get to see it courtesy of Uncle Sam!

Take this example: Many of you know before being stationed in England we were at Lajes Field in the Azores, Portugal. What's there? 10,000 feet of runway and 6 million gallons of jet fuel. So, we got to see a wide variety of military planes come through. Trans-oceanic flights are long and boring so often pilots will bring along "reading material" to help pass the time. A flight of A-10 Warthogs from Alaska stopped in and guess what? I managed to get a photo of it landing with the magazine proudle displayed in the canopy. A couple of e-mails and voila' another tearsheet for the file. Planes from Alaska, magazine from California, photographer in the Azores. Ain't life grand?

So in my our verbose way I'm trying to tell you to 1) look for news about the upcoming web re-design and 2) be ready to see sights that only England (and the travel access it affords) can possess.
