Much, much better than my first attempt, and more in line with my second attempt! Good job. I think you posted a couple pics twice though... not that I mind, they are good duplicates!

Just took a closer look at your avatar... cracks me up! Don't think that's the kind of thing I'd be advertising if I were to be the owner lol
