A Goddess on the mountain top, Was burning like a silver flame, The summit of beauty and love, And Venus was her name

First of all, proper attribution to Shocking Blue for the title. Now we can get on with the silliness, and simple serenity of a Salt Lake sunset.

"You've got it,...oh baby you've got it." Photo that is. Nice photo. :)

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it, and even gladder that you stopped by, Spence.

I like the title, not1word, since Shocking Blue was from The Hague in The Netherlands. Having said this, I like to tell you that your picture is a perfect match to the title.

Very romantic Phil...didn't know you had it in you.

He's full of surprises Laurel.

Hello, Norrel. I didn't know that about Shocking Blue. Now I do. And I thank you.

Well, Laurel, I really don't. It was someone else who wrote and performed the song. I merely appropriated it for my own purposes.

I'm a very boring person, Guy. No surprises here.

And down below, on wobbling stool, there was a sight obsurd, with camera held in patient grasp, his name was not1word...and when at last the sun did flail and sink below the ocean, he stumbled off across the sands - poetry in motion.

LOL Sue! Nice addition to the title!

I think we can change his name from n1w and Joy Bubbles to P.I.M. now!!!!

Sue, that was most kind of you to compose a poem for me on the spur of the moment like that. Thank you very much. Although, my motion probably isn't considered all that poetic.

Hey there, kamalyn and Norrel. Thanks for being part of the fun.

i was thinking bananarama, but we should give props to the originals.

you've got it:)

Actually, I sort of prefer Bananarama's version, Larry, but, as you say, we'll let the original folks have their moment of recognition.

Hi there, Andrey.
