@mhrackin: It's easy when you wear undergarments of authority.

Apparently (see comments below) Karen prefers to forgo undergarments and instead don the "gilded cloak of authority"

@mhrackin: ...It may be the legal eagles advising the IT people to block all image posting...

I think it's because we were recently his by a series of mega SPAM attacks and they'v elocked down on stuff until they can find a safe way round it.

Re " how did you get to insert the image?" It's easy when you wear undergarments of authority.  I think it depends on how the image is placed on the source web site, and the format. I've managed to paste a couple that were in img format, but no luck with JPEGs.  I know how painful it is to do from numerous personal experiences, but you ought to talk to the UBM IT security folks about that.  Certainly "editors" SHOULD have the privilege of inserting images.  It may be the legal eagles advising the IT people to block all image posting as it could be a case of copyright infringement! (or embedded spyware, etc.) Happens at least 0.001% of the time, so block it all!

@kfield: Like this?

Jup -- those are the ones -- how did you get to insert the image -- the system blocked me from doing so.

They were great -- you had to see them in action -- their recipies favored lots of butter and bacon LOL

@Kfield: I am trying to convince Frank to buy a motorcycle with a side car for the road trip. I think he would look amazing in the side car!!!

Enough about your boyfriend Frank -- what would your husband say?

Whenever I think about a motorbike with a sidecar, I think about the English cooking show called "Two Fat Ladies" -- they tootled around like that (do a Google Search on "Two Fat Ladies")
