Enjoyed this very much and was surprised and delighted to see my Sunsprite comment there ! Hurray! The photo was not mine, just the comment. I read it too fast.

I guess I missed the first Top 25 article... how is it determined? # comments? # photos? # views? all/none of the above?

Such a nice article to read while we're surrounded by snow. I copied many of them for future reference. Thanks, Dave!

Might be fun to do it again to see if much has changed. I do love my Chihuly!
