How are you? I've ordered your BBook some time ago and last week I was happy to find it in my mail! So, well, now your the reach of your book has extended to The Netherlands as well! I've taken the liberty to attach a small webcam-picture of me with the bbook. Not the best photograph, but I guess this ís actually the place in my home where you would find me a lot, so it's a real action-shot, so to say.
Thank you very much, I really enjoyed the book!
A webcam shot is an action shot for me too.
