We are still having problems with the internet....Apparently caused by them having too many customers...?!

So I'm sorry for any slow replies and lack of comments at times.

This is lovely Frank, shades of what you're missing at home

If the internet has too many customers I suspect there will be a slack time when it will work best for you. But of course that might be 3am..
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris, lots of sand here....Just no water. smile As we are close to N.A.U. campus,most of them are still using it at 3am! smile

Not great planning by the provider Frank. It sounds a bit of a lame- we don't want to invest too much money - sort of problem. I hope it recovers soon.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, It does doesn't it Andrew, " We'll keep charging them, and wait and see how many complain, most of them are students, so we might get away with it"
I didn't know BT were operating in the USA.....

Nice picture
Frank L Croston.: I thought I had escaped all those woes....Little did I know, thanks.

As long as you are able to post these incredible pictures, you won't hear me complain.....
I hope that the problem will be solved.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Astrid, hopefully soon, but we are not holding our breath...smile

Keep trying, Frank - frustrating for you, but good that you have uploaded picture like this for us
Frank L Croston.: We both are frustrated by it, Elisabeth, Ellie more than me, as her time is more restricted.
Thanks, glad you like it, I try and load up when the opportunity arises...smile
Very dramatic scene with the stormy clouds on the sunny beach.
Frank L Croston.: It made a nice contrast, Mary.

You may have net problems, but not with producing excellent pictures - likey
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, very nice of you to say.
Full marks for the composition here Frank, it looks rather a nice place to go.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian, it is, I made a special trip to find it, having driven past the signpost many times, it was well worth the effort.
This is my kind of picture Frank, lovely colours and feeling of space
Frank L Croston.: Lots of both in this place, Sarah, the kids would like it....smile Thanks.
We never got to the coast on our recent visit, perhaps another time, it looks interesting with all the mountains as a back drop
Frank L Croston.: It's a bit of a hidden gem, Martin, just turn right a couple of miles before you get to Barrow in Furness, it's at the end of the lane.

I'm purring as well (aka Ray)
Frank L Croston.: Well good, I'm very glad, Richard.
Great looming sky and nicely composed foreground, Frank. Hope your I'net problems clear up soon - we tend to think of the US as leading in this area but in fact they are way down the international rankings on Internet access, etc.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom. Apparently, so the tech' who came out to us tells me, it's due to more of the students on the campus around us signing up than they expected, and the extra equipment required to solve it won't arrive for a couple of weeks....Mmmm.
Finely composed, Frank. I need to get out more often...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Larry...That sounds good....smile

It must be frustrating for you and Elizabeth with the internet issues - well, it would be for me, anyway. This looks my kind of beach - despite the crowds - and my kind of sky, too.
Frank L Croston.: It is, Alan, though today we seem to be ok, for how long I don't know...It is a great beach, unusual for this coast.
This is gorgeous, Frank - perfect comp with the grass in the foreground, the stormy sky and mountains in the background... I love it!
(Nice to be back online!)
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, yes it is, I'm trying to answer all these comments while I can....smile
The clouds look like a carpet of blue.
Frank L Croston.: Yes they do, Jacquelyn, thanks.
