Great Pictures!

Purple Joy, is to me purple, but others might not agree. Perhaps my
monitor is off. Is it possible to put on the wiki a chart of color
ranges so that, we all see more or less the same colors? In other words
have a 'check chart' posted? Perhaps with just the basic spectrum? I do
not know if this or is not practical or possible, but it might be worth
trying seeing we all seem to have different ideas of colors. Cheers,
john e. Bryan
