    @         Carl42SG (About posting images, from yesterday.)

    (I suggest copying and pasting the coding examples below into a WordPad document, or Mac equivalent. You can duplicate them as necessary for your own purposes.)

    To post Images
    (There are several variations. Choose the one that’s appropriate.)

    You want to post this image. URL=:

    These are the various code variations you could use:

    When the image width is less than or equal to 360 pixels wide use:
    <img src="The URL of the image goes here">

    When the image width is greater than 360 pixels wide use:
    <img width="360" src="The URL of the image goes here">  (This is the coding I used for the image above.)

    When you want your reader to see the image in its true size using the image itself as a link to do so, use (This requires the viewer to click on the image to expand it.):

    <a href="The URL of the image being displayed goes here" target="_blank"><img width="360" src="The URL of the image being displayed goes here as well"></a>

    It is a critical part of the coding that the image URL is pasted between the  "   "   with no spaces between the beginning and end of the URL and its associated  "   .

    To get the image URL

    Step 1:   Place your cursor over the link below. Right click and select “Open in new window” in the dialogue box (You won’t lose this page.).


    Step 2:  When you have that page up (Bring it to full screen if necessary.) right click anywhere within the image itself.

    Step 3:  When the dialogue box opens go to the bottom and click “Properties.” Another dialogue box will open.

    Step 4:  Within that dialogue box there is a line reading Address: (URL). Put your cursor within the URL itself, and right click. This will bring up yet another dialogue box. (Also note the “Dimensions” line reading 777  x   438 pixels. Pasting the URL into the first code variation would result in the image spilling over the comment box. The image’s width is 777 pixels. The width of a comment box is 360 pixels.)

    Step 5:  Go to the bottom of that box and click on “Select All.” The URL will indicate it has been selected.

    Step 6:  Move your cursor back to the address, right click again, and click copy. You now have the URL of the image of the fire truck on your clip board and can paste it in the appropriate code slot as I did, like this:

    <img width="360" src="">

    If you copy the coding above and paste it in a new comment box and click Submit, you’ll have another picture of the fire truck contained within that comment box.

    These steps work for virtually any image. I used the first posting variation to post your full size avatar, URL obtained from your profile page, above.
    This is the avatar size GoComics uses:

    Its URL was obtained simply by right clicking on your avatar in the comments column. You have to admire properly done programming. GoComics came through here.

    If I haven’t been clear, tell me and I’ll try again. There is more of my posting trick blitherings here.

    Please, if you would, let me know you got this. Thanks.

    You’re welcome, I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    @        comicsssfan (From yesterday.)

    Thank you for your kind words about my review of “The Blacker the Berry.” We obviously have very different interpretations of the story’s content.

    I cannot see through to the optimism you have for Emma. Yes, she rejected many (I would go so far as to say all.) true offers of friendship, beginning with Hazel Mason, but those rejections stemmed from her treatment at the hands of her mother and grandmother.

    In my opinion, as I said, she, herself, was made, inevitably, racist because of that treatment. Because of it too, she never became herself, and was always striving to join a social strata which would never accept her because of its racism.

    Her very real intelligence and abilities serve only to highlight the tragedy of her life. She could not accept friendship and happiness because she had no idea of how to do so.

    But, enough said; I see tragedy, and you see hope. I’m going to accept that you are correct, and I just don’t have the eyes to see that hope.

    I’m going to supply this link. My relevant comment there is the sixth. I do recommend the book referenced.

    Someone forgot to throw out that organic material in its proper place place for compost. Bacteria at work decomposing it for us.

    I think the comic today is referencing how eating turkey creates flatulence… And there is an entire cafeteria filled with people eating turkey in many forms.

    Thanks! I’ll look at that book. It can be seen how this works in the town I’m in now.

    @Ewal Doh

    There’s being without a dictionary, and then there’s reading an insult from an idiot at bedtime. I was not familiar with the term “flamer” as it was used last night. And I gotta say, thinking of all who might know something I don’t, Redkaycei Repoc is the last guy on the planet I might look to. So, ready to turn in, I’d thought I’d ask him to explain himself.

    Now, as for your definition, it has come from a politically correct source, that’s for sure. The only use of “flamer” I’ve ever heard is as extremely pejorative slang for a homosexual (“not that there’s anything wrong with that”). Never having known the usage you have provided, I had to wonder.

    Couldn’t guess what might have prompted that from RR, but now I know. But really, who could blame me for misunderstanding? That guy doesn’t know if he’s on foot or horseback.

    If those sandwiches have such a strong, unpleasant odor, the children should not be eating them. A classroom full of food poisoned children is a nasty experience.

    In my public school the lunch room always smelled good. It was the boy’s locker room that was the problem. It was really rank, but it seemed the people in charge didn’t seem to mind the smell, for some reason or other. Suspicious, I tell you.

    About those guys, and coaches so exuberant in the locker room. I don’t know. I could only imagine myself that exuberant in a woman’s college locker room.
