• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

July Wisconsin Swim In


Eric Mattlin

My son Nick and I had a great time at the Wisconsin Swim In last
weekend. Dave the Wave showed up so I got to visit with my car. I
sort of like riding in the back with Dave driving.

I took better than 200 pictures with my digital camera and some
movies. Amongst them are some really nice shots. I plan to burn
them onto a CD along with all the other amphicar photos I have taken
to date. Anyone wishing a copy can drop me a note offline. I'm
planning to have them at Celina so as to minimize postage. I just
need a rough count.

Please reply offlist as It can get really cluttered otherwise.

You must have just missed us as we had breakfast at the Red Apple and
then a short swim by The Anchor Inn and then out at another ramp down
on the lake with an electrical problem. We then headed to the house
to load up some cars for their trips home. We will do it again next
Where are you located?
