Seems to me I should get back to offering Pictures of the Day - after all, it's my own server and my own traffic! Besides, there has been a _lot_ of new material added since my last POTD.

Today's POTD actually fits the celebration mood; here's Gina Lollobrigida from the cover of L'Europeo sometime in the 1950's, blowing streamers at a party with her white opera gloves peeled back over her wrists:

For the Love of Opera Gloves is five years old this weekend. It's been a long, sometimes arduous and frustrating, but almost never boring, trip. As a small gesture of thanks to all the people who've visited over the years, I've caused to be created a new "official" screensaver with nearly 200 of the best images of classic stars in opera gloves. You can access this, and the rest of the update, by going to the What's New page and taking a look at what's on offer today.

Thanks, people. I couldn't have gone on this long if I didn't know that you were out there.
