I read with fondness Greg's account of swimmin in the big lake & have also
been far offshore in lake Michigan at sunset with concerned passengers. Even
got stuck in the channel coming back in and had a beachfull of strangers hip
deep in cold water pushing me while I sprayed them with water and sand till
I could get out. Greg, I have pictures if you send me your E-mail address.

> What we do to protect your address:
> Yahoo! Groups has built a system around the concept of preventing bulk
"harvesting" of email addresses. There are several protections in place:
> Non-members of a group never have access to the Members area.
> When members are given access to the Members area (a per-group option set
by the moderator), they can only see profile information you've told us to
display,
> and your truncated email address (e.g., "joe@x...").
> Message archives on the Yahoo! Groups web site display truncated email
addresses (e.g., "joe@x...").
>
> Important information about protecting your address:
> Whenever you join a group, your email address will be available to the
owner and moderators of that group.
> Whenever you post a message to a group, your email address will be visible
to those members of the group set to receive messages via email. If you are
> concerned about your email address being known to other members, we
suggest you set up a special address for Groups using a service such as
Yahoo! Mail.
