flopsymopsy, Sorry about it not being a photo. That is why I asked "May I..". Sorry to have caused you extra work. And, thanks for the linking directions. Let's see how good a teacher you are as I try those directions on the other thread smile Now if I could only remember how to copy and paste to my notepad those directions (he he he)

Does this experience call for a thread for screenshot posting? With Terry making changes to keep up with technological advances, wouldn't it help to have a venue to post screenshots? Can't post them on the other threads, can't post them here and linking adds a step where you have to split your screen to see the image and the verbiage.


And for CmdrK: screenshot

Mehaul, you asked "May I" and then did it anyway. And no, I don't think we need a thread for screenshots - people are free to post their screenshots to an external site and link to it, just as I suggested you should. Whether or not people then want to bother with viewing the words and image on a split screen is up to them - I think most people are capable of flicking from one to the other and remembering the details.

Dave, I know who Fannie Flagg is, or rather I knew that she wrote Green Tomatoes but Match Game was a new one to me. Anyway, I've looked it up now and it was the precursor to Blankety Blank... well, why didn't you say! wink I don't know about the original but over here that was a very funny show.

Ours here in the States is also quite funny...I like going back and watching them again.

CmdrK, nice photo. We've never visited Vegas in the summer before (and won't again because it was ridiculously hot last week) but the very first day we were there it poured rain (and 7 days later our flight was delayed because of more storms). I personally have never seen rain in Vegas (snow in the mountains, yes, but not rain) before this trip. Glad you got a pic, thanks!

okay, I admit I'm stupid. what exactly is a rice bucket?

Christina: the dianthus I have in my rock garden are very much smaller (they're a perennial that has to survive in Zone 3 lol). Yours are gorgeous. I really need to move somewhere else, sigh.

I have been lazy about posting recently, so here is a pic of a lazy Precious, curled up with my handbag in an easy chair.



I see that you worked out the connection between "Blankety Blank" and "Match Game", both of which are/were funnier than the Canadian version which for my money tries a bit too hard.

View of the Blue City of Jodhpur from the Mehrangarh Fort. Earlier only the brahmins were allowed to paint their houses blue. Later it was also adopted by others to help keep the house cool in the desert climate.

An impressive fort indeed & we can still see the cute blue houses below.

Flopsy, what a beautiful animal! Name? Age? Gender? Does the prey drive kick in and are bunnies chased?

Great photos as always from everyone.

I spent a few days in Weston Super Mare last month (a birthday treat to myself.)
Just got around to putting some of my photos on Photobucket, including this one of a
bandstand in Grove Park.

He has a very exotic name because being an exotic Siberian Husky in England is, er, exotic. He's called, wait for exotic name and drum roll... Ralph. Anyway, he belongs to one of my great-nephews and he's, hmm, nine or ten? Ralph that is, not my great-nephew. smile

You will notice that no mention was made of chasing rabbits. However, if Ralph was a beagle...
