Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.

Good Morning...here...Michael,

I just noticed the friend's request.  I have started doing the URL thing and it seems to work somewhat.  Before, copy and paste was very easy and I was able to get a variety of sizes so it did not take up so much room.  I do not understand what happened to good old "copy and paste"?  Thank you for inquiring...I guess people will have to click on the links occasionally if they really want the information they've requested.

Have a great day
