Greetings on a warm 31st. of July.

I've finally put together a few surfing locations after a bit of a
hiatus. It's not that I have run out of sites, but that I have less
energy sometimes (like hot summer days), and what energy I have goes
into garden care or family visits...

Here are today's links:

Lee Akins (Dallas,TX, USA)

Helen Bates - April 28, 2006 - Canada, Israel, USA")
