Just wanted to point you to a couple of spots on the site recently amended through the help of a couple of our readers.
Cream Colored Premium Photos
First thanks to Amit Benyovits for increasing the count on our most recent Photo ID Guide and Checklist from 23 to 31. Amit contributed the 8 additional names and images to our page for these 1930s Movie Premiums: Myrna Loy, Bing Crosby, Leslie Howard, Charles Boyer, Victor McLaglen, Marlene Dietrich, George Raft and Claudette Colbert.
Also a reminder: auctions end Monday night for the 16 of these premiums I listed on eBay which were the impetus for updating the old guide to begin with!
That's an example of the Cream Border Premiums up above, and it's also a dual purpose image because of the next item on the agenda:
A big thanks to Peter Conole, who I've had a great time exchanging emails with the past couple of weeks, for his lengthy additions in the comments section of my Freddie Bartholomew series. Peter has done a fantastic job tracing Freddie's ancestry back to the 18th century as well as highlighting some of the pre-American portion of the youngster's career.
Speaking of Freddie Bartholomew I'm currently working on the draft for Part 3 and doing my best to resist posting anything until after one final movie that I ordered arrives!
Thank you again to Peter for calling to my attention some problems with the commenting system. I thought I had sorted it out by repairing a database on the backend but apparently that solution was just temporary. I dug around some more tonight and wound up deleting two plugins and it seems to be working now--at least I was able to post a couple of test comments as well as manually enter Part 2 of Peter's Freddie Bartholomew comment.
I had to deactivate the plugin that allowed you to receive a follow-up email when someone posted a comment after you--personally I think this should be a native feature to WordPress as it's very important, but for now we'll have to get by without it. I gave brief thought to installing a third party commenting system but the word nightmare constantly sprang to mind and so I've gotten over the idea for the moment.
Now I'm hoping you can comment without the system missing a trick, but just a tip to save you potential frustration--after you type out your comment you may want to highlight and save it just in case something goes blooie* when you press the "Submit Comment" button. Thanks, crossing my fingers there won't be any problems!
