John, many many improvements. Love the look of the home page. I was going to tease you about working Nano half to death getting this done, but I suspect he's too smart to work that hard!
As for optimism and preserverence, I think everyone who's battled with these restorations can claim a piece of that action. Going through the gallery is a joy I allow myself often, just to witness again where some of these images began and the unbelievable, loving toil that's responsible for the miraculous "afters." I'm so glad to be part of this group.
