I seen a cool trick yesterday by one of my kin folks to keep squirrels out of the bird feeders.
of course the feeder on top and just below it they slide on a slinky over and the squirrels couldn't get up there.
it only made it about as high as it could jump is all.

I don't think that would work very good on raccoons though (too heavy)


I think part of your post is missing. But I still think I understand the concept.

This is PC. He's gone now. In the first photo he's watching a bird video that
was made expressly to entertain cats.

In the second photo he's just soaking up some sun and chillin'.

Just finished issue 3 of The Walking Dead. The comic/graphic novel moves much faster than

We have threads for "listening to" and "watching." I thought
I might start a thread for reading.

So what are you reading?

I'd like to start by saying I'm reading something very adult and provocative,
but I can't. I'm about half way through You Can Date Boys When You're 40:
Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About
.

I've also started reading Rescue Me: Dog Adoption Portraits and Stories from
New York City
.

For three years, fashion and portrait photographer Richard Phibbs has
donated his services to the Humane Society of New York, making portraits of
dogs up for adoption as part of the Manhattan shelter’s work to find them all
"forever homes." The best of his photographs are featured in this simple and
moving album, along with the story of each dog on its journey from often-shocking
circumstances of abandonment and rejection, through rescue and the joy
experienced in the new homes these pictures helped them find. This heartwarming
New York story will appeal to dog lovers all over the world. Phibbs’s introduction
is a passionate appeal for everyone to rescue a dog. The book is perfectly sized and
priced for an impulse buy. Royalties from its sale benefit the Humane Society of New York.


Oh, and I've also started reading the The Walking Dead graphic novels, which can be
purchased for the Kindle from Amazon.com.

Sneaky Pete, another Amazon exclusive.

It seems, lately, that I have to watch about three episodes before I
get "hooked" on a show. I nearly quit Sneaky Pete after the first
episode.

Also, now that I have "reattached the cable" (satellite), I find myself
watching too much "TV" and not enough streaming shows. In my
mind that's a bad thing. The streaming shows are usually better.

Try a different browser. Some insist on https for everything and images frequently are not sent secure.

Now why should I have to change from FF?

Cheers.


I'm using FF as well. No problems.

I post all mine at 800x600 resolution, that give me max size on a 19" flat screen. But yes they become pixelated if you zoom in too much. What I do is probably very wrong but happy to accept advice

First transfer originals at 55"x41" @ 72dpi to photoshop at 34Mb file size
Next reset to 6"x4" @200dpi
Enhance as needed
Upload to photobucket at 3Mb file size
Resize to 800x600


It's my opinion that there's no reason to post anything over 72dpi, since that is everyone's
screen resolution. Therefore, height and width dimensions would be more important.

If you're worried about destroying your original photo, simply make a copy and edit that.

I can sure, though the topic says Originals so I was posting originals :) But I will post smaller resolution ones.


Originals only refers to the fact that you must own the photo. The only exception would
be if a friend or relative takes a photo and gives you permission to post it, but you must
clearly say if that's the case.

Great photos. Can I make a suggestion Mitchell.

I have a powerful gpu & a large enough monitor to enjoy those photos but I had to scroll down for all of them. Any chance you could reduce their size for here?


Actually, I was going to ask the same thing. Please try to size your photos so that they will fit in a monitor window.
(I hope that makes sense.) I try to make any pix I post around 8" x 10" (or vice versa) at 72dpi. I think the new
message board format will resize photos to width, but not height (to fit on the screen).


Next 20
