Auction Lots For January 2013

Sorry about posting late, but for some reason my PC refuses to pull up the listings of photographs on my hard drive when the Google Blog publisher is asked to upload pictures. I can't figure out if this is in the Google program or if the PC is corrupted. I will eventually figure it out. I had to send all of the January pics over to one of my iMacs and do the listing there. I do not normally use an iMac for that because I use Corel Photo Paint to resize the pics and Corel will not run on the Mac OS system. I have noticed that one member of this blog used a pornographic picture as his ID and I would ask him to please choose some other non-offensive photo as his logo. This is not a site dedicated to that kind of material and I am sure the other members would appreciate something less offensive. Please replace that photo. I have culled through the current offerings in the various European auction sites and here are a few of my finds:
