All,

One of my favorite threads on the Marriott board is when TUGgers post the view from their balcony -- it's a great tool to get a sense for what the view plane is like from different properties and buildings.

I do not know if there is a similar thread here on Starwood board, but if not, I hope this catches on.

Best,

Greg

To post the picture into your message, you have to upload the picture to a website like PhotoBucket (free) resize it to be about 700 pixels wide, and then copy and paste the IMG link into your post.

Thanks! I did it! How do I get rid of the thumbsize one? Can you do it for me?

Hmmm - not sure how to remove it - I can delete your whole post, and you can repost it if you like.

the best gifts always come from Mother Nature... taking time to look up from the endless displays - fortunate
