HI Pete,

Thanks... Have been having a jolly o time in the garden.  Hope you guys are settling in well in your new home and gardens toooo!

I went to share my ooooby photos on a friend's FB page - via friend's private message and it seemed to take the link ok- within his message box - but when I go to click on that link to see if it works, an  ooooby page error comes up. Yet On my FB page it appears fine and the link goes to the ooooby photos.

Would love to share my ooooby album with a few folks..
