Get these free dragon pictures before the site goes down.

I love dragons. I found this great website about a year ago, Now it seems that the domain may be for sale but you can still get to the pictures if you go through the link I just gave and not the link to the home page. If you love dragons I would go to this site and get as many pictures as you can before they are gone. You will get an annoying ad that was not there before. Just close it and get the pictures. We are talking 1000’s of them. I am going to see how many I can get before I loose the chance. There are pictures here I had never seen before and others that I just love. Lots of book covers and such. I hope people can get to the pictures before the site is all gone. I hope I am wrong about the domain and site, but I don’t think so because if you hit the link to dragon resource center it takes you to a page that said this domain may be for sale. It is sad when such a wonderful site goes by by.

I found the link to about 10000 coloured pictures, It was hard to find as I kept getting domain may be for sale.

Please let other people know about this site before it is to late to get some of the pictures.

News on my Grandmothers ring and Indonesia

Some thing very interesting happened today. Rose from FedEx called. The Indonesian Government has decided to wave the “storage” fees for my Grandmothers ring. Please note, that it was not the Indonesian Customs who decided to wave the fees. It turns out that some of the information Stormy on mySpace gave me helped us big time. Storm gave me a link, that took me to more links, and some how I ended up with the person in charge of Indonesian foreign trade’s email address. I am not sure how I got there, but I used it. Lets just say I used all the email address’s I found. On top of that there was a very nice newspaper story done about my Grandmothers ring, and that has been sent by email all over the place. That helped out a lot. It seems the more people heard our story, they passed it on and more people heard it and so on and so on. So we are not sure how but the story reached the right peoples ears, our blog was mentioned to FedEx as they informed FedEx they would wave the so called “storage” fees. Wow, the power of the Internet and people who will not shut up and just let people, business’s or Governments get away with things.

Now mind you, they did say they would be willing to let us fight over the $330.00 they still want for the original customs fees. However, if we chose to go that route it would take about two years before we would see the ring, and they would charge us storage fees. So we are paying the $330.00 to get the ring back. This time though they said it would take about two weeks before we saw the ring. I will believe it when I have it in my hand. Then I will be happy about it.
