    Oops, I didn't realise they had included a definition of 'sanguine' as: Cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident. I included a very sad, lonely looking girl in a red dress.

    Hey skyfish, go to your 'lab' and you can select one or many photos to edit. The text boxes should be on the left hand side of your screen. The 'lab' button is under the coloured navigation bar at the top of the page.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
