Default Photos Ed

Your photos that rotate when you first log on to the site are amazing. Have you thought about putting them in a book or doing more with them?

Syner..you should keep an eye on the US EBay, i just recently bought Eds book "The complete Guide to Rum" and as a free bonus i also got The complete guide to Whiskey..

I believe that Eds books as well as other good rum books now and then pops up at Ebay. I also bought "And a bottle of Rum" from there.

Now i also want to say that apart from Eds photos (and some of those photos are also from ministry members) i also appreciate the Royal navy toasts of the day!

Rums of the Eastern Caribbean was the title of the my first and second books. They are out of print and are now collector's items. I've heard first edition books are sometimes available on Amazon for less money.

I discovered a few days ago that the front page photos weren't being displayed on Internet Explorer browsers. I've changed a couple of lines of code so that they are back. I don't know how long they were missing. I use Firefox and it's my browser of choice and the browser I use for testing.

You can see more of the front page photos by refreshing your screen or you can take a look at this page I use to check that the credits and images display properly.
