Gorgeous photo and I am sure you took it....and doing good to others is THE BEST ever.....I wish that there were more people in the world that felt that way.....instead of causing hurt....we would sure be a happier place wouldn't we and our news headlines would be so different.

If you're a Jefferson fan, you have to go to http://nytimes.com and look for Maira Kalman illustrated travelogue on Jefferson, appeared yesterday, 6/28 in the Sunday magazine.
