Did Barbara have an avatar? I cannot remember. I noticed that the old software used to display a "placeholder" avatar when a member had not gone to get a Gravatar, but it is just left blank now.

Sorry, Barbara, but I think it is just your system unfortunately. Everything appears fine to me with Firefox on Windows XP. I will ask on the software support forum. It seems that the content is not wrapping correctly for you, within the bounds of the available space.

No, I didn't have an avatar, just the placeholder one. Maybe I will get to grips with trying to sort one out one of these days...

 

But, this page of the thread is fine1Smile Laugh Ok WellDone I can read it all, and it is wrapping correctly. So it was just something with the previous page, which I still can't read all of. Did anyone do anything between the pages or did it just happen?

I'm glad I was offline over the bank holiday – there's no sign of all these forum oddities you guys are talking about. Thank-you for sorting them out.

Here's a random pic of me in the Alps on South Island, New Zealand. It was the day before G and I got married and we were exploring the area to find the perfect spot to do the deed.

And here's the spot we chose:Image Enlarger

 

I've been looking at the pics again recently because I've got better slideshow software these days and I really ought to tidy the wedding ones up. If I don't caption them soon I'll have forgotten everything!

I have better random pictures than these, but they're so random I can never remember what I've called them. I always have to look them up.Doh

Very sweet! Big_Hug I can't remember when we decided to get married exactly, I think the decision sort of evolved. Doh

Danast - those tulips are stunning now that I'm looking at them on a decent sized monitor. Especially the black and white ones together.

Oh, MOS. Between you and Shereen, we will keep good old fashioned romance alive on this forum. Well done, both of you. Any photos, MOS?

Shereen - I long to visit N.Z. for its fantastic scenery. Some day, hopefully. Great pick for location.

When ! I win the lottery ime going to have the biggest smallholding i can get and plant stuff just because i can. (or if its that big should it be a large holding)anyway there will be room for you all to plant strange things you haven't got room for or cant justify in a small space , Cool.so all i need is the last two numbers for this week ,and the first two ,oh and the ones in the middle , apart from that i have everything i need to win the lottery ,well apart from the quid for the ticket ,but i can hope anyway,or just rely on BS to win and have a good old barby down under Devil MOS.xx

to win the lottery I would first have to buy a ticket and since I have never bought one I don't think I am going to change on that one, anyway I already have a small holding that I can plant whatever I like in, unfortunately the wild boar and the deer also like the area and think they can eat whatever they like!!!!I_am_Hungry So with your huge smallholding you will need a lot of fencing and lots of help - you need to win the lottery for that lot!!!Smug

I've never bought one either, so no chance of me winning. Whistle

I'll try that again!

Oh it wasn't all romance on the route to the altar. G proposed to me whilst I was up to my neck in ironing, and watching a programme on Stonehenge I'd been really looking forward to. He asked me to stop a minute and I gurned cos I had my "get it done" head on me. Poor guy!

NZ is well worth a visit for its food and drink too. We had some really memorable meals over there, and most of them weren't in posh restaurants either. The lamb and salmon were outstanding.
