All good wishes

Used on Facebook[edit]

Hello and thank you for providing the map of left hand drive (side of road!) countries. I haven't used the image itself but thought I'd let you know that I have used the Wikipedia link to your article after responding to a thread on Facebook. Many thanks, it was quite a shock to see how many countries still drive on the left. Just as I thought, it's the rest of the world that is on the wrong side! Best wishes Dave Rose

Use of your photo.[edit]

Hi Benjamin (AKA Bdesham),

I've never seen this done before, but I think I'd want to know how and where my photos were being used, too (if I had any photography skills, that is). I came across "Fantasyland Bavarian Architecture" on The Jigsaw Puzzle site and thought it was so beautiful that I wanted to share it on Tumblr, Pinterest, Google+, and Facebook.

Thank you for making it available to view and share. Actually, I hope I'm able to share it...I'm not very technically inclined. Or as I once wrote: technically, I'm illiterate. :)

Are you on Flickr or any other photography sites? I'd like to follow you.

On second thought, I don't want my email address to be made public, so you won't be able to get back to me. Maybe you could just add that info to your page.

Nath Tradition in Nepal[edit]

Dear Benjamin,

I came across to your wiki on Naths when I was looking info on a particular Yogi Narahari Nath well known for his scholastic and controversial associations in Nepal. I do not know to what extent you are aware that the two first Naths have much prominence in Nepal's cultural life: Matsyendranath and Gorakhnath. There is an important festival after the first and the whole Gorkha gets the name after the second. Tomorrow there will be a festival of pulling Matsyendranath chariot (32 feet) in Kathmandu and in a couple of months in Patan - identified as White and Red Machhindranath.

Where were they originated? There is also a big temple of Dattatreya in Bhaktapur. Having heard many legends after them, it looks like that they also had much to do around this area. Do you reckon it originated around Gorakhpur? How it's timelines go? Perhaps you could connect the two info.

Kind regards, Teeka Bhattarai

Use of your image: Middle C in Four Clefs[edit]

Hi, just a quick note to let you know I'm planning to publish the Portuguese version of my book "Out Of The Blue" and I was searching for a picture of the first note to translate the title of my book that makes an alusion to the C note ("DO" nada) when I found your image would perfectly fit what I want to say, as your portraying of four clefs reaches to the point of having the last depicted note out of the five lines and looking exactly like a spacecraft. Therefore it symbols the theme of my sci-fi novel that actually talks about the outer space. Hope you may check out my book when it's ready. It will definitely be Amazon page Thanks!
