Photo Gallery Coming

I'm trying to upload a series of photos that I think will surprise quite a few people. But I'm having technical difficulties here. As soon as this problem is resolved (hopefully it won't take very long) I will show you pictures of things you have never seen. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: The problem is with my ISP. I can't upload anything. Internet infrastructure is better in Iraq than it is in Lebanon. (Yes, I am completely serious.)

I'll have to go to Starbucks tomorrow and use their wi-fi connection. Then I can show you the cool stuff.

Pictures of things I have never seen?

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Come on, come on....


Seriously now, thanks for the good flow of excellent articles. I have learned so much on your site, I cannot even begin to value it (and I won't!).

But if you ever make a book out of your articles and pictures, I'll be among the first to buy the hard cover edition!

Very interesting site. I find your posts very interesting. I have absolutely no idea how I even came across this site.... how strange.

I'm looking forward to it, there ain't much these ol' eyes haven't seen.

My ISP is Meganut. They suck.

I meant Meganet, not Meganut.

Michael, off topic, but have you heard any talk in Lebanon of reforestation. The cedars, I mean. (Is this an idiotic question?)

Posted by: Patrick at February 15, 2006 10:44 PM

I have not heard any talk of reforestation. But Walid Jumblatt created a Cedar Reserve on the Chouf. It is a forest that comprises 5 percent of the surface area of the country. It's small, but it's nice and it reminds me of Oregon.

lol, Mike I never heard of that ISP, must be new. I use Cyberia, not exactly Speedy Gonzales but it get me there...it's no LAN, but hey what do you expect.
