OHHH so kind of you Sir! Thanks Michael, Could you take a look at the zeta thread photo gallery as some of the pics seem to be deteriorating. They used to be good, but now some are distorted, somethings wrong! Lorettas was posted today, and it was the one that concerned me so I looked and several are becoming distorted that were not before! Could it be overload on that thread?

Hi Karen
I dont think its this site which is causing the problems  .

I would say that its down the site which is hosting them, is it photobucket.

Maybe they havent uploaded properly to photobucket.

Or maybe their file size was to big and photobucket has had to reduce their quality in order for the site to host them.

Try deleting them from photobucket and then upload load them again ,if that dont work delete them again from photobucket but this time try resizing them, make them a bit smaller so they have a smaller file size before you upload them.

Michael

OH NEIL>>>>> I think that michael is calling you Sir!!! Photo bucket is your forte not mine! I think Michael my friend that we must wait for Sir Neil to return as he knows all about photo bucket and I am a mere student and only posted 2 photos months ago, and can't remember how to do it now. I will study my instructions again tomorrow after work and see what I can do. Thanks for taking a look!.....
  Hey Michael did you go out for your Birthday yet? Hope it was fun!! What did you get for your Birthday Michael?

First to address you Queen Mod...I had the site up for a bit took a phone call from my dear friend Rob, meddling him while he was dosed up on benedryl...(it makes him crazy and I love messing with him, like having him sing, goofing off with some off the wall limericks, he usually falls right into it!)We are going to go to an oxygen bar???As I have no clue, but it is supposed to be better for your system to I guess oxidize ourselves???  Something he has dreamed up. So of course, this post was up during the hour long conversation probably and others posted since I had my reply and then I hit reply and voila, it landed in the middle of your posts...

Photobucket may be the reason why the pics are distorted somewhat...I deleted and tried again...but the quality is yucky, the pics are not that big either...I don't know what else to do...?  Thanks Michael as I tried all those options...if you can think of something else again...or another idea I am willing to try it...Karen, photobucket is pretty easy to use.  

I was also thinking of "while you were away Michael post too...and love the idea of Helena's as well...

Your time....8:48AM!

1.NS made top 5 on podcast nominations.
2.Need lots of votes from July-28th to Aug. 11th
3.Bad news you dont get back til about then!
4.Good news,at least you will be back!
5.dabbled in a bit of poetic licence in the poetry thread.
6.added more to your combo, but not much as my combos are lacking imagination today.

10.Wanted to be home today and just post and relax!
11.Wondering if they have recovered wifey from babbling brook yet!
12.Had a new little girl at school today so very sweet. She is a very cute shy little hispanic girl with beautiful brown eyes who we thought did not speak at all.This was her third day, not a peep from her mouth except to cry when her mom left on first day! I have done my best to speak to her and comfort her into the school. I have held her at rest and in the yard as she fell asleep in my arms and would not go with another teacher. So as she is running out the gate with mom today. She turned to the fence and grabbed the chain links and yelled out to me, "Teacher! I love you!" My heart just melted. Oh my God, I love children! The only thing she has said in the whole time she has attended. Very Clear, and very good English! I was so worried about her, Bless her little heart! Ohhh, There are so many kinds of love out there and I am such a sucker for a cute face!


Anyway overall great day, but am very tired, hoping your day was great!!!.....hugs Karen

Neil while you were away a large moth fell into my toilet, i thought about saving it but in the end decided to flush it.

But to my amazement it survived what must be the  moths equivalent of niagara falls and was still flapping about on the surface  after the water had stopped flowing. I then had a quick re-think and decided that as this moth had survived the torrent of water trying to push it round the U bend that this moth was special and as such deserved a second chance of life.:)

I didnt want to put my hand into the water to fish it out so i decided to use the loo brush ,however i pressed to firmly against the moth and killed it.:(

I know, its sad. i totally agree with you  but please wipe away your tears and help me ,their must be moral too this story but i just cant think of one so i'm hoping you or someone else will for me.

 Please dont let this poor innocent moths death be for nothing, their must be a moral something which i /we can pass on to our grandchildren.

By the way i called him fred, i thought that was rather apt as it rhymes with dead.:D


PS .I've now been bad and sad:)
Michael

Dear Neil...hmmm, I am beginning to wonder about Michael...bless his heart!

1)Long flipping day!!!!  Just 2 of us running one office...I had to close my office down.
2)Did not finish all of my activities...(which is a pet peeve of mine)
3)Bossy at all day meeting and had to return to office at 4:30pm...geez,why bother?  
4)Bossy came in with accusatory tone and lied on me about Laura(another marketing person)and said she told me my mistakes...I WAS PISSED!!!  She knew it as she hear me say, whatever??I said fine I will just send her an email and see what her freaking problem is and ask her to send me an excel report of "all my mistakes" hmmmm, 5 minutes later bossy's tone changed and suddenly there were no mistakes...ISN'T THAT JUST AMAZING?(maybe you can detect a bit of sarcasm in my tone in typing here)
5. Went to 2nd job, will be working 7 nights a week from 10-2am no life for at least 3 weeks...then it will be Wed and Thurs off and 9:30pm until 1:30am...I like these hours better...maybe sooner..we will see.  Lady is okay, but will watch her as she yaks about co-workers.
6. Son and I had a nice talk tonight....and still no word from my son in Germany tonight...I am making it a point to take lunch at home in case he gets on to IM me..
7. I feel like confucious should say something about the moth in the loo for Michael...like moth in toilet maybe whacked by loo brush!

Good night hon...I pray you have peaceful dreams and plenty of sleep!

Neilsy...time to tell the truth...

1. Morning started out where I belted out a whitney houston tune as Magnum was sleeping...I thought he would appreciate my high pitch early in the morning...hey the cat didn't beg for breakfast once!  I think he was mesmerized by such a sound!  LOL  Okay, probably scared!
2. Ate 2 brownies...mmmmm, had cereal, hamburger, and 2 slices of pizza tonight...
3. scratched kitties stomach...
4. Annoyed with Magnum after having nice chat as I am on the phone and he is bugging me or trying to manipulate me and thought I was weak being on the phone...Not!
5. Karen and Helena have both been cutting up while you are gone and no one has been able to keep them in line...I really have tried...did you see Helena's post about being good?  Unbelievable...lol  Anything to look innocent...tsk, tsk, tsk...

Good Morning Neilly!

1) Jealous of Karen getting an hour more than me!
2)Deciding to take off most of this day and go in later...
3)sending you a little ditty to make you appreciate even the extreme heat there...

A TEXAS BLESSING Note: If you are not a resident of TEXAS or never have lived in the hot, humid Southwest you may not understand the weight of this blessing!

Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry.

Please keep it cool in mid-July.

Bless the walls where termites dine,

While ants and roaches march in time.

Bless our yard where spiders pass

Fire ant castles in the grass.

Bless the garage, a home to please

Carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas.

Bless the love bugs, two by two, the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.

Millions of creatures that fly or crawl, in TEXAS, Lord, you've put them all!!

But this is home, and here we'll stay,

So thank you Lord, for insect spray.

 HOLD IT............there's more....................

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN TEXAS  IN JULY WHEN. . .

The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

 The trees are whistling for the dogs.

The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

Hot water now comes out of both taps.

You can make sun tea instantly.

You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron!

The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk. Ah, what a place to call home.

God Bless Our State of TEXAS!!

4)Girlfriend was shocked while we were out and told me her boss would never do that and then asked me who was whose manager...I told her I know, but this is how it is with her...
5)Danced like I never danced before...MICHAEL, MY BABYBEAR IS ALIVE, HE WILL BE FINE WITH SOME TIME AND NOT SURE IF HE WILL NEED REHAB OR NOT FOR GAIT, BUT HE WRITES PRETTY GOOD WITH HIS LETTER...JUST ABOUT  PERFECTLY...HAD TO TELL HIM ABOUT THE DENNY BREAK UP.
6)Denny IM"ed me...I IGNORED HIM YEAH!!!I am turning into a rude heifer...I felt bad...but had too.
7)I slept again until 5:30am about 3 hours..yeah!
8)Missing you Neilsy..
9)Missing you lots Neilsy.
10)Thinking of Neilsy everyday...
11)Trying to still keep Karen and you know that really bad girl Helena inline...whew...what a job you have! Misbehaving everyday!!!
