# Albert, Prince Consort
PLEASE BE KIND AND PIN POLITELY! We ask that you limit your pins to *25 per day*, which is more than the Pinterest suggested 5-10 a day. I have had to do this due to people taking 100 or more pins at a time. Please *follow the boards you are interested in* and take a few at a time. Pins are added every day, so you want to keep an eye out for new pins. Thank you for understanding and Happy Pinning!
