If you see a sign that reads "free", don't steal the sign, 'cause it's not the sign that's free, it's the stuff around the sign. Instead, take a photo of the sign and send it to me and I'll post it here. Thanks! email: NormMagnusson@aol.com

Reader/photographer Josh G. sends in this fab pic, adding to the archive and schooling me on how important composition is. A case of '68 Chateau d'Yquem is on its way to Josh as our small way of saying "good work"!!
I value my stuff. I paid for it. I take care of it. Maybe I even admire it. It's worth something to me. But now maybe it's time for me and my stuff to part ways and so it's time for me to take a good hard look at my stuff's emotional value versus its cold hard cash value. Oh sure, maybe I could find somebody on eBay who would be willing to pay $5.00 or so for the lovely used objet that has served me so well all these years. But then I'd have to box it up and drive to the post office and maybe get in line behind someone who smells or is crazy or both and maybe have to deal with a surly post office employee and pay for the shipping and, crap, I'd probably even have to get a Paypal account of my own in order to get paid the $5.00. Damn. That's a lot of trouble for a coupla bucks profit. Maybe I'll just give it away for free. Yeah. Here ya go world! You're not stealing! Just like the sign says, it's free. Enjoy.
