    I really love this format! News, guests, photo of the week, Q&A and I especially appreciate all of the links you provided in the description. That is most helpful for things you mention that I want to learn more about. I also love history so I can't wait to see and hear the stories behind the cameras on the wall. Great job to you, Tina & all of those behind the scenes for your 1st TOGLIFE video!!!
