• 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

You always remember your first...

Amphi & I had become a little complacent with
"first timers" in our amphibious realm until we
shared a ride with someone who was afraid of
the water. Imagine that... being afraid of water!!!
Anyway, this new passenger encounter really
drove home that the proverbial virginal wet entry
is really something kinda special. After all there
is only one "first time" for any Amphi rider, even
though the thrill is nearly matched with each
successive re-entry. And of course the ever
mounting anticipation is a marvel all unto itself.
Amphi likens himself to the Magic Johnson of
introductory first time swimmers having logged
dozens, perhaps hundreds, of the newly wetted.
It is indeed a special gift to be shared with all,
that first time in, be it back seat, front seat, or
even the voyeuristic gleam from the pier. All
these Amphi encounters are treasures we should
cherish. From Amphi's perspective - even the
slow entry, and gradual buoyancy that follows, is
appropriate in some cases - the young and the
elderly seem to actually prefer the slow entry
method, while most others hope for the wildest
possible Amphi interlude. And some just like to
go in-&-out, in-&-out, in-&-out as long as there
is adequate protection and it's safe. Oh... how I
digressed from our water fearing passenger tale...
perhaps another time.

On the semi-related topic of tranny balls and shafts
posted by others - I will endeavor to research this in
depth and report at a later date.

Please remember to cast a few votes in the "Polls"
on the value of Amphipoda postings. The votes
are completely anonymous - even to me. Thanks.
