What was my first clue that you don’t like housework? “stopped” and “around” sound familiar? Are you done yet? Hope you know I’m just kidding!!!! LOL!

You sure have that right! I just about broke the computer, trying to get around and behind it. So dusty! Wouldn’t have that problem if I had a nice laptop!! This one is still running quite well so I just take advantage of that.

I have no idea where my once sweet viola, turned porno, is posted but in my saved framed files the message is thanking someone for the lovely poetry.

If you ever run across it please delete!! It’s REALLY bad.

I am used to tinypic deleting graphics..That’s why I use Photobucket or Imageshack for Sundays now.
I hope tinypic gets better security.Except for backgrounds I have always used it because it is so convenient.

You all have me so scared. I have my things in my files but I go to tinypic all the time. I’ve never lost anything and it has always worked perfectly for me. Now I know something could happen tomorrow but so far so good. Its been about 3 years I’ve been using tinypic.

How in the world would a person transfer things to Photobucket? It would take years for me to do that even if I knew how!! LOL!

I hunted for some old favorites in the Amy archives when I deleted my picture files..some of your graphics had changed..but not to porn..I noticed several that did not fit the comments..Some of mine had changed and some just deleted or lost by tinypic.
It’s the porn changes I just hate.
I have used tinypic for so long because it is fast.

You can’t store things and see them like you can at Photobucket. I have some of my pictures still showing up that I got links to years ago. They store them in servers..some links last...some don’t.

I previewed some of my saved framed files trying to recover old favorites...No luck with some because tinypic links don’t work.

I remember some time ago, you told me about an ‘upload’ server that gave you a virus. Would you feel free to post your opinion on this?

I did not get a virus recently..It was blocked by Norton.
I did inform Photobucket..I know all sites have these possibilities.

Some vicious hackers are out there.
I have Norton anti virus and Spysweeper.

I hate to sound ‘unsmart’ but I am not familiar with the bulkloader. Every day I find there is much I do not know. LOL! But I do love pretty graphics, I do know that.

When you click on upload..bulkload is at the bottom to click. You can load a whole file from your computer ..mine loaded 25 graphics pretty fast.
I still am learning.
Off to clean the kitchen.

I’ve never counted mine but there’s a whole lot. Well, maybe we could start with 20 per day. I might transfer a few just to see if I can do it. I have an account there and an album with some pretty graphics. I would say I don’t have more than 50 there. Seems its easier with tinypic. I may just take my chances. We all know if something pornographic would show up, that none of us would do it.

"We all know if something pornographic would show up, that none of us would do it"

And none of us would SEE it - because the first one that did.....
Would notify the mods and it would be deleted.

So there, hackers - don't waste your time.

WE AREN'T INTERESTED!

A Mighty Stream
Let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream. —Amos 5:24

When I was a young teenager, my dad, uncles, cousins, and I went trout fishing at the head waters of the Sacramento River in California. The source of the river is melted snow, so the water was swift, clear, cold, and refreshing. My cousins and I couldn’t resist stepping into the cool current while angling for rainbow trout.

On the way home, we stopped for a dip in a pond that was far different. The pond water was warm, and it smelled stagnant. It contrasted greatly with that swiftly flowing, invigorating stream.

The prophet Amos used the metaphor of a stream to illustrate the transforming power of righteousness. Appalled at Israel’s dead religious ritual and their exploitation of the poor (Amos 2:6-8; 5:21-27), he called for justice and righteousness to prevail. He saw that God’s people were stuck in the stagnant pond of injustice toward others when what they needed was a life marked by “righteousness like a mighty stream.”

Likewise, God desires for us to allow justice to “run down like water” from our lives. One way that can happen is to strive for just laws and to champion loving care for the poor. May we seek to be a part of God’s mighty stream of His righteousness until Christ returns.

Justice is the clarion call for Christians—
We cannot step aside from what God said;
He has told us how to treat our neighbor,
And we must follow on the path He’s led. —Hess

Righteousness follows when truth springs into action.

Bible in One Year: Numbers 28-30; Mark 8:22-38

THIS MUST BE LAID AT THE FEET OF AL (THE BORE) GORE, THE
U.N. AND THE POLITICALLY BASED ‘SCIENTISTS’ OF THE WORLD!!!

Baby Girl Survives 3 Days With Bullet Inside Her
Monday, March 01, 2010

A baby girl survived three days with a bullet in her chest
as she lay alone beside the dead bodies of her parents and
toddler brother in Argentina, the Daily Mail reported.

Francisco Lotero, 56, and Miriam Coletti, 23, shot their
7-month-old daughter and son, 2, before killing themselves.
The pair allegedly agreed to a suicide pact over fears
about global warming, according to the Daily Mail.

The couple’s son, Francisco, died instantly after being
shot in the back, the paper reported.

The baby girl, whose name has not been released, escaped
the apparent murder attempt after a bullet from her dad’s
handgun missed her vital organs, according to The Daily Mail.

Worried neighbors alerted police three days later, after
discovering the massacre. Paramedics then rushed the blood-
soaked baby to a hospital.

The miraculous survivor is now recovering in a hospital in
the town of Goya in northern Argentina and is out of
danger, according to the paper.

Police discovered an apparent suicide note by the girl’s
parents in which they outlined their fears over global warming.
