Latest By:  @community, last year

FYI: For this Forum's purposes, • When one member contributes both the IMAGE and the TEXT, that will be posted as a "SELF-COLLABORATION" • • Whenever required, A. Mac will do the layout and choice of type face (font) for any given collaboration (and hope to hell he does a decent job of it!) … so no member should hesitate with regard to participating.
