Greetings from Hot Springs, AR! Wish you were here, too. We love graphic artists...or any other kinds of artists for that matter. Thanks for the plug!

Recently geographer Warren Bland named Hot Springs, Ark. the No. 1 place in America to retire.

I gotta admit, Hot Springs is a pretty cool place to live, even for those of us who aren't yet retired. Ask Sherry Amatenstein , a fellow journalist from New York who visited here recently!

By the way, I really admire your photo restoration work for disaster victims.

I'm also in the market for a new camera, so I appreciate your high five for the Canon G7.

Keep up the good work.
