Duff, I hate to be the bearer of bad news...you are running your web site all wrong! Don't you know that actually reading & responding to quieries from members is un-heard of these days? lol
Thank you for the rapid response & a VERY enjoyable web site!!!!

CJ, the exclamation marks are my way of flagging "featured" items -- things I find particularly odd or funny.  They also appear at the top of their gallery rather than in alphabetic order.  I haven't flagged any new items that way in a long time.  Thanks for asking.

Just curious as to the meaning of the "2 white exclamation marks inside a red bed box" as seen on the first two items in this catagory? I have also noticed them on other items throughout the site.

I enjoy browsing the "Baby Boomer Museum" even though I am not a baby boomer.  I wonder what an equivalent site will be composed of in 50 years.  Will the idea of going to a theater to see a movie be funny, how about driving a car and then buying fuel, living in a private house, progress has not stopped and things we enjoy now will seem antique to young people at that time.
