Good grief, it seems like ages since I've been able to post. I see lots of lovely photos in the days I've been away. Ren, your flowers and bee photo is beautiful and your sunset, bhs63, is breathtaking.

This was tonight's sunset on the Ohio River in Metropolis, Illinois.

After a leisurely lunch which my friend was texting a bit, making me a little suspicious we carried on and found ourselves at Covent Garden Market. We had a look around and ended up at a certain shop at a certain time and there was another person to meet me whom I had talked with before.....explaining the earlier texting. Then we met up with a third person. smile

At least they couldn't reach the ones at the back laugh

They look a bit prickly to eat - you'd think it would hurt their mouths.

The flowers and the bud they sit in an quite fuzzy so they didn't get hurt eating them but they didn't reach in too far amongst the actual plant .. they are reallllly spikey!

That is a great photo Copago. I didn't know sheep could smile, or is it a sheepish grin. smile

Now that the knocking down and patching up has been done, the re-build starts:

By the wonders of Facebook, I found out that The Queen was paying a visit to a community
centre which is just 2 minutes from my house. I managed to get a few good pictures from
across the road. Prince Philip is on the right hand side.

Those sheep are adorable, especially the cheeky grinning one! Love 'em!
I see the Queen is looking Pretty in Pink, eh?

Precious has also been enjoying the photos, and wants to join in the fun.

Yesterday I was in Metropolis, Illinois, home of the Superman Museum and this 12 foot statue of the Man of Steel. (photo taken with cell phone)



(edited to add: OK, Thanks. I got it resized.)

Wow, I haven't posted in ages, sorry! But there have been some AMAZING photos since I've gone!

Meet the newest addition to the family! His name is Noah, and he is a pure bred Australian cattle dog. Understandably, he is still a bit nervous, but he's settling down.

Very, very, very cute puppy.

Clara Sue, a belated congratulations for making the roll of honour. Utterly deserved. Your pictures are always brilliant.

A bit of a jump in time. The partition wall is built and the plasterboard put on. I've built it so that the opening is just he right size for the doors that are to be fitted. This would save me having to plane them to shape:

I agree, Dan, amazing pics!
I don't think I know any other cat who is so expressive, Liz!She should be in Movies,
Thanks all these are super!Love Noah, Precious and Superman too. Martin , what can we do about the size of the Superman pic please? The fault lies with Photobucket, I think.

The size of the picture is 577 x 1024 pixels, so the 1024 pixel dimension needs reducing to 640 pixels in a photo editing program and the re-uploading to Photobucket using a different file name, then edit the post to link to the reduced size photo. Either that or it can be done using Photobucket's resizing tool, which I can confirm is working OK. If the photo is resized in Photobucket and the same filename is kept, people will have to refresh their browsers to see the photo at the correct size ..perhaps even hold the Control button on the keyboard down while refreshing the page.

This is why I reckon it is best to give a resized photo a different file name and link to that. The browser then sees it as a new file and won't draw on the original large photo that has been downloaded into everyone's browser cache. I can help out if needed.
