I think the BIG difference here is that feeling of a "small, close knit" family that eminates from the site itself. Jeff and all should be commended and thanked for working so hard to keep things going smoothly along. Immediately after finding ssnakess I began to have FUN with all that's involved here! Very UNLIKE some sites and VERY welcome!
AT THIS POINT..I am obliged to ask each one of us to take a moment (read lifetime) to be thankful that we are free to pursue these interests.
