emails

I apologise to anybody who has been waiting a long time for an email response from me.   I've made some progress over the past few days in reducing my backlog of emails to be answered. 

-  On 20 December, I still had 608 emails to reply to.

-  By 31 December, this backlog had reduced to 592 emails.

UPDATE (May 2015):  I've found that adding my photos to Instagram is easier than adding them to the EdinPhoto site.  So I'm still updating EdinPhoto, but I've begun to add more of my own photos and short video clips to Instagram..
