    I graduated high school in 1980...does that mean I'm 'Vintage'...?

    Yes, you are vintage. I am a little more vintage than you.....
    I signed up for Smug Mug and have followed all directions but can only get a red X to show up....I am better in the garage than the computer???
    Working on the pics

    Neat. Looking forward to it.

    I always thought that RM stood for Real Motocross but Wiki says it stands for Racing Model. I like Real Motocross better. :D
