It changed..Someone hacked tinypic.
It showed an inappropriate graphic.
But, I saw the graphic that Kitty posted, and it was so sweet. It was not altered that I noticed.
This morning it was changed..trust jaycee and me.
This is the prettiest graphic! Promise of Spring peeking through the snow and ice!
I am shocked that something that is already posted can be changed. But, then again, I can’t even do a frame - so whadda I know?
Should we not post graphics, then?
Should we go back and check our graphics to make sure that somebody didn’t come in in the middle of the night, and alter them?
I didn’t see your graphic, Meg but I was going to tell Kitty that I wanted that puppy. It was adorable.
I’ve lost some pictures at Fotki but so far, none have been hacked. Haven’t had any trouble with PhotoBucket either. Both have free accounts in addition to paid accounts.
Hi, Amy - I haven’t had any problems with my Photobucket account.
'My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq regime has been completed.
Since Congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, ourmission in Iraq is complete.
This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq . This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.
Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short .
The United Kingdom , Spain , Bulgaria , Australia , and Poland are some of the countries listed there.
The other list contains every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.
Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war. THEN EVERY YEAR THEREAFTER It'll GO TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM SO IT WONT GO BROKE IN 20 YEARS.
The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.
Need help with a famine ? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France . In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.
Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France or maybe China .
I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France and Russia . Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well.
I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.
A special note to our neighbors: Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.
Mexico is also on List 2. Its president and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple thousand extra tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put 'em? Yep, border security.
Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.
We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska -which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there.
It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, 'darn tootin.'
Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America . It is time to eliminate homelessness in America . To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.
To the nations on List 2, a final thought : You might want to learn to speak Arabic.
God bless America .. Thank you and good night.
If you can read this in English, thank a soldier.
ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
( Let's get this to every USA computer!)
To the Thawing Wind
COME with rain, O loud Southwester!
Bring the singer, bring the nester;
Give the buried flower a dream;
Make the settled snow-bank steam;
Find the brown beneath the white;
But whateer you do to-night,
Bathe my window, make it flow,
Melt it as the ices go;
Melt the glass and leave the sticks
Like a hermits crucifix;
Burst into my narrow stall;
Swing the picture on the wall;
Run the rattling pages oer;
Scatter poems on the floor;
Turn the poet out of door.
I’m listening to the sweet ‘oldie’....love it! And it goes so nice with the beautiful graphic, perfect match!
Aw heck, Amy’s stopping the snow graphics. I was thinking of posting a beautiful beach picture this summer with snow falling....LOL! At least it would give a smile! :o)
I will be back when I get a few chores done! We have had rain
and snow this morning and at the moment, its fine snow. Very cold but we hear warmer is coming by weekend.
GREAT picture with poem,Yorkie
WOW, JC! Wouldn’t THAT be great to hear “O” saying something like THAT! But, no - we have to turn on our tv and see his face every day.................but he STILL refuses a press conference. Hmmmm. Wonder why?
Oh, this is so pretty, Amy, and I know that most of us ARE ready for Spring. Also know winter is not ready to give it up yet.

Just passed by with my kitchen vacuum cleaner.
Why does he not hold press comferences?.....just because his answers to their questions can’t be put on his little tele-prompters. He couldn’t speak if he couldn’t read every word. He is on now and I turned to the Food Network. Can’t stand to listen to his empty promises or even to his voice...period. Back to the vacuuming.
Love your poem and graphic from yesterday, yorkie. Yesterday March did indeed enter like a lion here. Brutal winds!
Morning, tiapam, and thank you for the nice comment on the pledge graphic yesterday. :)
Me too! He’s on EVERY SINGLE DAY - reading words that someone else put on those telepromptors. I have wondered what would happen if a Tea-Party person somehow got hold of the keyboard of those telepromptors............
Here is “O”, standing in front of the TV camera:
“Well, folks - time to come clean here. I have done the citizens of this country a major injustice. As I have been studying the Constitution (in depth) for the past couple months, I have come to the realization that this country’s ONLY hope, lies in total adherence to those words.
From this day forward, all bank, auto and insurance ‘loans’ will be rescinded. Not one penny from our government will be given to CEO’S of ANY company for bonus or retirement. If a company fails, well, that’s their problem. Let them deal with it. A better company will emerge. It is called Capitolism.
All monies going to unions and lobbiests, will be stopped immediately. Not another cent.
All members of the House and Senate will now have retirement pensions not to exceed the minimum wage in this country. They will all have the very same health care that they have insisted the citizens have.
Our Southern Border will be closed immediately, and everyone that is illegally in this country will be taken to Ellis Island, to live until they have complete medical clearance, have someone to sponsor them, and can speak ENGLISH!
And the ‘birthers’ were right all along - I am not a citizen of this country. Now, do what you will with me.
My Apologies, Dear FRiends, that Someone Hacked my Goodnight Pic Last Night. :(
I've been Using Tiny Pic a Lot Lately because of a Problem Uploading Pics to my Photobucket Account,
But will Never Use it Again after this.
One of my Old Laptops Works Well with Photobucket, so I'll Use instead of my New Laptop to Upload Pics.
Some Evildoer has too Much Time on his Hand, to Hack into our Pics. :(
But it's a Beautiful Early Spring Day, with the Sun Shining, and the Birds Singing,
And my ((((Hugs))))) are Sent to All FRiends!
I guess I will have to stop posting graphics, then, Kitty - because I don’t have another link that will upload them. And I don’t have a photobucket account.
Is it access to Tinypic for sure? Oh well. Guess one person likes to ruin good clean fun for everyone, hmn?
Hi Billie, Certainly enjoyed the picture, plus the song by Doris Day. Thank you! Hope you have a good day.
Jaycee! How are you doing? Cold and rainy here—nasty.
I love your “solution”! Where do I vote? LOL
Please don’t Ever Stop Posting Graphics, Dear Yorkie; your Posts are Awesome! Hacking Might not Ever Happen with you. Or a Photobucket Account would be Wonderful, and it’s Fast and Easy, too, like Tiny Pic, and it’s Neat to have your Own Albums Filled with Graphics. I’ve Got All my Background Colors for my Picture Frames stored there, plus a Zillion Graphics and Gifs.
Oh thank you Ms. Kitty for the compliment. I have all my graphics stored under IrfanView, on my computer. I can crop or change the dimensions and pixels on any of them, and I can also change the sharpness, the red eye, etc. I wonder if I could transfer the IrfanView file to photobucket.....
is higher, indeed, than genius,
as it needs no explanation.
It is of the great facts in the world
like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection
in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.
Isn’t it the truth, Luv?
That is so cute, Billie~~~
He is on t.v. everyday ‘campaigning’ and yet he was so arrogant at that meeting the other day calling down the Republicans for ‘campaigning’....he’s nuts. Said their words were just talking points to campaign on. I thought he was very arrogant that day. Bragging “I’m the President, thats why!” He’s gotta realize many, many of those who voted for him now realize they made a big mistake!!
Its very cold here. We’ve had rain and snow today. It has stopped now but its kinda nasty here too. SPRING, I am waiting for you!!
Wish we could vote on that....he has only 2 more years this November and remember he campaigned the last 2 years of the Bush administration....so I say, lets go, lets start the campaign soon........!!!
Kitty, tinypic is about all I use. I do use Photobucket some but tinypic is my main source. You may use that for years and not have that happen again. It happened to Meg one time and she said hers was awful.
Actually it could happen anywhere. Your graphic was there on display until this morning. I was rolling down the thread and I saw the thing change right before my eyes. I wrote Meg (I thought FReepmail, but made mistake of putting it on forum and I asked them to remove my post too.)
It is something you don’t need to apologize for, sweet Kitty...you did nothing wrong and please don’t worry about it. Its the bad people that do the hacking. I don’t understand what they get out of hurting someone else.
I will be FReepmailing you soon. I did love your little doggie graphic though. Don’t worry!
No snow but I can smell it. Hopefully we’ll just get rain. Like we needed more rain.
I used the wrong word. I don’t want to VOTE for that—I jsut want to SIGN UP! LOL
ME TOO, GG!
Are you off work today or posting from work?
Oh, my goodness, JC! That is BEAUTIFUL!!!
Thank you, yorkie! I stopped to do a graphic supporting Billie’s theme today.
Now I am warming some left over pizza and it is smelling good. I am also vacuuming around my computer stuff!! What a mess that is. I don’t like housework...LOL!
Thank you Billie - great greaphic for Doris Day’s song. (Wish we had a ‘Doris Day’ today.)
Thank you so much, Kitty. While dusting and vacuuming around and on my computer, I did something to it and had to re-boot! Goodness, funny things happen to these computers...
At work. Not busy but busy enough to keep me in the store and out of the greenhouse.
Oh my, how awful! I don’t understand why someone does those things and I don’t understand HOW they do them either!! There must be hackers out there just waiting to do something upsetting to another human being. In my heart, I think they may have to pay for such hatefulness!
One thing you can rest assured of...if anyone ever saw some vile thing with your name on it, you have all of us to vouch for you. Whoever something like that happens to here, we all know its hacking since we have such a wonderful thread here and only show beautiful things! Hope they get caught but I doubt they will.
Please pray for my son, Matthew. He suffered a fractured skull on the 25th. He is out of ICU and in Acute Care.
Oh, dixie sass, I will definitely start praying for your son. Was he in a car accident? Hope he recovers well and quickly, please keep us informed!
