    Yes, for those yak steaks.
    They’re not gnu, but just as good as gnu.

    @Essex

    So glad to see you. Thanks so much for letting us know you’re off again. Have a wonderful trip, and let us know about your adventures when you return. Thanks for the picture of the StelBel family reunion. I can see it now! I’ll try to calm Stel down when she realizes she’s missed you again. Glad you had your departure ceremony. Marcia and Todd are quite expert at it. :)

    Yea!!! I love to hear how widespread and diverse the residents of Ballard Street are! Makes me feel so cosmopolitan !

    Ooh, ooh, that’s what I’ll have. I’ll switch from margaritas to cosmopolitans. Join us, Downundergirl? I got snickers.

    Essex!


    I wrote a long post … my first in over 24 hours….
    right behind yours … trying to catch you as you sped away.


    But my browser shut down unexpectedly….
    a Firefox crash!
    All my windows closed, and my post was lost!


    So now my pleas for you to stop by the Tiki for one last “parting ceremony” fall on far-away ears…
    but happy trails, my friend.

    Far better to miss someone going off to known adventures than
    worry about someone who disappeared without a trace…
    Thank you for that…
    and don’t forget us.

    Bev — I’ll join you… but no cosmos for me….


    I’m more in the mood for a nasty dark ale .. or oooh a Guinness…. that’ll do.

    Glad everybody liked the ribs Wednesday night…
    it was the Monkey’s secret barbecue rub, and his smoker… and my sauce, for those who ate ’em sauced….


    He gets the best yak meat straight from Turdmunkestan.
    And his rub is great…
    Hey!
    His barbecue rub.
    Sheesh!

    Anyway I was just starting my comics rounds last night, when I got a looooooooong phone call…


    it’s been “one of those days” ever since…
    but all is well now and I’m back!


    Gotta sleep some before morning…. and my salon is booked up tomorrow into the evening.. but that’s a GOOD thing.


    Heading to the Tiki now…. pipe me aboard, Red?

    Very true! And Susan I don’t think he could just…..forget us…….not unless you’ve sold him a supply of brain bleach.

    Aaaahhhh…
    Thanks Red….
    one’ll do me…. but would you like one too?


    Ok…. mulling over the day….
    I read yesterday’s forum, even though I didn’t get a chance to post….


    (Between crazy phone calls, I had something else to write, and it took a lot of thought and concentration.
    Sometimes Ballard Street does too!)


    Anyhow, I read about Stel’s Bing problem, and I wanted to get in my 2¢.


    Stel, when you get here….you (and maybe X, too) have said you right click the picture and save the URL from that menu.
    (Copy image location in Firefox, copy shortcut in IE, I believe.)


    Have you tried what I do, which is actually opening the picture, and saving the URL from the address bar?


    I do it that way so I can see what I’m getting… but it seems to me the page wouldn’t open without a valid address.


    Firefox makes it easier… that same right-click menu includes “view image,” which opens the image alone on a page.


    In IE, so probably MSN too, you have to click the link on the right that says something like “view full-size image”.


    Yeah, yeah, it’s an extra step… but a quick one.
    And if it works, well worth it.


    And of course, my preferred solution is…
    use Google images, not Bing!


    It’s so much easier…
    the images don’t run away wen you try to click them…
    and I find the same ones on both.


    Trying to use Bing images on Internet Explorer is an exercise in frustration for me compared to Google images on Firefox.

    Oh…. you oredered Scotch before I asked if you wanted the other stout…
    does that mean I HAVE to drink two?


    I’ll do my mighty best….
    mmmmm….

    SusanSunshine GoComics PRO Member said, almost 4 years ago

    Bev…. did you go off to bed?


    Goodnight….
    and did you say “Ick” about Guinness??!!
    Ooohhh!

    Meanwhile…. brain bleach is selective…
    like color safe Clorox…
    only removes the stains and not the good stuff.


    As for my Firefox crash…. I’ve never had a browser that NEVER crashed…
    Firefox has been more stable for me than IE, which used to periodically freeze, stop responding, etc.


    This is probably the first time in many months…. and unlike IE, when you restart it after a crash it brings almost everything back,
    re-opens all your windows…
    sometimes even with unsaved text intact.


    But this time I got an error-reporting message, and by the time my windows re-opened my text was lost.
    Sniffle…
