Glorious.    :o  I had read your earlier post but did nothing.  Now that I see what is under threat it is obvious that action must be taken.  Will definitely send an email.  Thanks for letting us know about this Frank.

Wow... wonder if he would allow his images of Scottish windows and Scottish artists on SG (Need the input like a hole in the head of course)
