    I truly am sorry for all the trouble. It was not my intent to slight you in any way. I was going to reply to the comments on my board, but realized that if I do that and then delete the pin you wouldn't see it. I've repinned a single photo from your Panorimo page and added the website addy to that page in the description. I'm going to add the direct link to this board in the comments. I have removed deleted all the other pins.

    Perhaps I should have been less long-winded and made it clearer that my comments were made somewhat tongue-in-cheek (for example, I add "John Latter" to my photos not out of possessiveness, but because I like seeing my name). I thought an easy compromise could be made by adding links, but what's done is done, I'm afraid. The photos you've been looking at were taken with a 6 mega-pixel camera. By way of compensation, should you want your very own photos of any part of Dover Castle then please let me know. I now have a super-duper 18 mega-pixel camera and I can take a photo of any particular scene for myself, pause for a second or two, and then take a photo for you (so that it becomes your property).

    That's very sweet of you! That would be lovely! I'm in no hurry, though... so if you happen to be there sometime great. If not, no worries. =) I envy you living where you have access to so much rich history. I've got.... palm trees and St. Augustine, FL.

    You're welcome, Dulcia. I have an annual pass to Dover Castle and go there as and when the mood takes me. Consequently, its an "open invitation". There certainly is a lot of history here - but on the other hand, we can't grow oranges :)
