    "Hey I wanted to leave a testimonial too, but it definitely will not compare to others I have read...uh hem VF and Andrea. Ok well I'm not sure if Janet was one of the first people I met on flickr but she certainly is one of the people I enjoy the most. I love seeing the antics of her cat Dilly, who is absolutely gorgeous. She lives in such a beautiful area that her pictures cannot help but be amazing. She has a great eye for the camera and I just enjoy looking through her stream.

    She always says something to make me laugh and her contacts are some of the funniest people. Janet definitely knows how to laugh, and that's a great quality not many people have. I don't care how old she is, I can joke around with her anytime. I feel as if I already know so much about her life through her pictures and stories of each shot. She is not afraid to put herself out there and that's because she's so wonderful.

    One day I'm going to have to get out there to meet Janet and Dilly."

    "Occasionally, as we travel through life, we meet someone with whom we develop an instinctive bond of friendship...where feelings matter and looks do not; where confidences shared are confidences kept; where enjoyment of one another is based not on what that person can do for you, but rather, what you can do for that person...to know someone like this is indeed a blessing...to find someone like this, a continent away, while looking for cute cats on a photo-sharing website is an incredible stroke of good fortune!

    This is exactly what happened to me, about seven months ago! I spotted a sweet-faced, intelligent-looking little cat named Dilly, while perusing my friend Mr. Ducke's favorite pictures...her owner seemed to love her very much, and I began to enjoy the variety of beautiful things that Janet 59 was sharing on her photostream. Somewhere along the way, we started to develop the bond of friendship that I described in the beginning of this testimonial. It is amazing, the fun we have together, thousands of miles apart!

    Thank you, Janet, for the glimpse into your beautiful world, for your caring spirit that you share so generously, and for the love you bring into our lives."

    "Janet was one of the first persons i met in Flickr since then, I considered myself lucky of meeting such a great person , so caring and sweet. Always with a nice remark, lovely comment and the right word in the right moment. She was so nice to me when my Gordy passed away without even knowing me much, she confort me and supported me in a moment I was deep down with pain and sorrow.
    Everyday I wait for her pictures to appear in my contact's. I like what she does, the painting, embroidery, bird watching and the love she shows in every description of her great captures. She seems to care about animals not only cats and that is something that i really value in a person.
    Janet is fun , she really amuses me with her stories and of course the unconditional life of that wonderful cat that rules her life : Dilly, who, by the way ,I love too.
    It is incredible how Flickr unites different people from far away places, from different languages and backgrounds.
    This is the first testimonial I write, so maybe it is not the best , but I just want to state that Janet is a bighearted person that i truly admired and that I thank her for letting me be her friend.

    Sincerely, Andrea."
