@ All the DipNote staff...Happy New Year to all of you! And, again, I would like to say that you are doing a great job "engaging and informing" all of us out here. As an educator in the art field, I am especially impressed with the photo choices. Absolutely beautiful. Every posting is enhanced by the photo you put with it. Your hard work is evident. Thank you.
