Uncle: powerfully said, yet well within the lines for all of us - I would hope! That's all we ask, really.

On another note, yet RB related, take a moment and look at this picture from Mars! Does it affect you as it did me. (Reflect momentarily on what you are observing.) Mr. Bradbury's tears well up for a good reason. This is just the beginning of some phenomenal perspectives and considerations of the small blue world we inhabit: http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/03/12/mars.earth/index.html

I have been really -- in a way, religiously -- moved as I've seen the amazing images coming in from the two Mars rovers. I think it is also cool that we now have the first image of Earth taken from another planet's surface!

I have also loved the images we've gotten from the Hubble scope.

It is an amazing time to be alive.

"Home sweet Home" kinda puts it in perspective.... I am glad to be on the "you are here" spot. Ray has seen the future, and it is "us". Spirit takes a photo, and gives Earth a heavenly zip code.
Can't beat it with a stick!!!
I wonder what our children will see in their life spans. Make a wish...?

If you want amazing images, guess what. I've now learned how to post a picture to a message board!



This is my new boyfriend. Eat your heart out.

Share, Dandelion. How did you do that?

Is this a good thing?

Mr.Dark:

I think the term "...eat your heart out" strongly suggests such a gruelsome activity, that it shudders the imagination. It far far far far transcends the technology of picture placing...

"eat your heart out"? I could look this good! All I'd have to do is pull that scarf up over my face and I'd look fine!
:-)

Looks like "Curly" from Oklahoma, how's he sit a horse?

Dandelion:

Wow! Just judging from your posts and overall demeanor, I feel safe in thinking he must be every bit as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside!

Okay, on posting a picture, what you do is "right click" on the image itself, which I had already learned on a Macintosh means "control click." Then you have to select the url for the image itself, not the page on which it appears. Again, on a Macintosh, I learned that "Open Image in a New Window" and then selecting the url from that window, is what works. On other computers it is no doubt different.

To post to the message board, you simply put [img][/img] tags on either side of the url. Again, I did not know on a Macintosh keyboard how to make those square brackets, but I copied the ones so helpfully posted and pasted them in the appropriate places and they worked just fine.

Having found the perfect epitome of human masculine beauty, I just had to run over and share with all the geeks--er, nice professor-type guys--here! Yes, he is an excellent horseman, kind to little children and animals, and a very warm, wonderful, and sincere human being, but I haven't asked how he feels about the most important thing in life--Ray Bradbury! If he doesn't venerate his Rayness, I'll just have to break up with him! (And doesn't he remind you an awful lot of a certain someone in "The Martian Chronicles" who came to a sad end?)

Hot, hot, hot. Way to go, Dandelion! (And I'm not refering to your newly learned technological feat.)

I'm glad someone appreciates true quality when they see it.

He seems like a catch, set him down someplace romantic, tell him your swooning of some strange malady, and read him A Medicine for Melancholy. Either that or Hopscotch, and if he did not catch on, he may just have to be tutored in the fine quisine of Ray. Other than that if the inside matches the outside you have a classic match. Bon Appitit! other than that you've got my blessing, Happy trails!
Uncle

Cheers, Translator
