TW, I have resized, both on Photobucket and my own laptop and re-uploaded this picture no less than six times. It is currently only 83kb on my computer, with two additional stickers even to show me proof of the changes I've made to this photo and yet it still shows up so huge on this site. Can you fix it? I give up.....

BHS, Really? Because when I click on the photo's properties here it reads 599x799 pixels and only one sticker. It should be whatever the "Medium" presets are on Photobucket, with two additional stickers. I wonder how that's possible....

I see your photo just fine, BurgGurl! What an awesome treat of a turkey dinner from Santa! We've done that reindeer food in years past...the girls would sprinkle it out on the sidewalk for the reindeer, and then guess who would have to go and sweep it up after everybody was in bed? If I didn't they would have never believed the reindeer were there!

BurgGurl, it's fine on my screen, too. It's absolutely wonderful they gave out dinners. So glad you were there to get one.

Hello BurgGurl - As bhs63 says, the image size is 336 pixels × 448 pixels. Try holding down the Control keyboard button while refreshing the page. The large image gets stored in the browser's cache the first time it is viewed. That's the one the browser will always display unless it's told to get the edited (resized) image from Photobucket. Holding the Control button while refreshing the page is the way to make the browser do that.

Ahhh, much better, though now, EVERYTHING is smaller. I have to tinker to get back to the "right" setting. Thanks again everyone.

Another nice little corner in Hampstead Garden Suburb. If you won 'Millionaire' you would still need a loan on top for one of these.

Today it snowed - all day. Not such big news hereabouts, except they're telling us to expect the same amount again on Sunday - and then again on Christmas Eve. The weather men on TV are calling it "Snowmageddon"!

Oh my heavens Liz,

What a contrast with your Summer pics. I imagine Winston and Katt are singularly unimpressed.

A nice little starter to the Staff Christmas buffet lunch today.
I now cannot move and will never eat again!

Katt isn't too bothered as he doesn't go out, but Winston keeps trying to walk without putting any feet down - at all - quite a trick. He's not at all happy about it.

This fire started around 5:00 am. I took this picture around 11:30 am. The firemen were still there at 7:00 pm. There are burnt pieces of wood a couple of blocks away. Yesterday was quite breezy. Any fire in this town is dangerous. This building is surrounded by historical wooden buildings, so the firemen did a great job keeping this fire from spreading.

"Oh the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let it snow etc."

Our little tree in front of the house, we're getting about 10 cm today, not anything near what Liz is getting, but the wind is suppose to pick up to about 60 km this afternoon, yikes.




I put lights on the tree but you can't really see them because of the snow, but it'll look nice when they're on, glowing under it.

Oh I love that little tree of yours Argus. Didn't you have Christmas lights on it last year, or am I thinking of someone else? One of my "must haves" in our permanent home (someday, when we stop moving) is that I have a little tree just like that in the front yard.

Delicious looking plate, Ren! Yummy.

Liz, WOW on your snow - ours is almost all gone by now.

Bhs, kudos to the firefighters for keeping the fire contained, sounds like it was a bad one.

Interesting range of photos as usual; I'm jealous of the snow, but suppose we're better off without it here in the south of England.
I saw this duck a few days ago, but have no idea what species it is; probably a hybrid. about the size of a mallard, it has some features of a teal.

picqero--one case of snow (large) is on its way to your very door.



Sunrise yesterday. There's even a train in the pic for sat. Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train.

I keep making feeble attempts to brighten things up with all the snow that is about. I spotted this orchid flowering in the garden Not bad for December

This is Banstead Downs golf course in Surrey, with a public footpath in the middle.

Yes I put lights on it every year, but it's starting to get too tall for me to reach the top. I had to add a string of lights this year as well. I do believe there is a photo of it with the lights on somewhere on this thread.
