If you are going to make an announcement of any significance, do it from a place like this: the Columbia River Gorge. All of my gorge photos are posted on smugmug.
Announcements are important as is good phone service so be sure that your carrier reaches far off places. Fortunately the gorge area is just miles outside of Portland.
This photo was taken the 25th of October 2008 just as the autumn paint was splattered across the countryside in vivid oranges, yellows, browns, and reds. As there is an ending to a season, there is a beginning-new life.
