I see you....

well I wish I could see you. I can't seem to get Picasa's Blogger Bot to upload any of my photos. Ever since the guy from the free site busted my onions about hotlinking to other sites, I can't get it to work. I wonder, did the guy do something to my blog so it won't upload my photos? Or are they just too big to load from a 56k modem? I'll have to try it at another computer and see.

On another note, Peter Jennings has lung cancer! What! Dude that is no good. He could barely talk tonight when he was telling everyone. He said it was from smoking. DUH!? You know, sometimes I see people at work smoking, friends of mine, and I want to tell them I will help them to quit cause I used to suck the weed myself, but I know it won't do any good. I mean these are colleagues, and yet they are killing themselves in pieces. But they have to want to stop. I know when I used to smoke when some well-meaning do-gooder would tell me all the reasons I should quit, I was -- shall we say -- not very receptive to their wise counsel.

It really is freaky how much death and dying has been prominent in the news. I mean in one week, we're talking about Terri Schiavo, the Pope, Frank Purdue, Prince Ranier of Monaco is on life support, and now Peter Jennings has lung cancer.

By the way, if you have not seen the Frontline on the Pope, get it and watch it. It is a very balanced treatment of the man, his theology, his faith, and his legacy. I watched most of it Monday night.

And I have to give a big Zoomba Zoomba to the North Carolina basketball team! Hurl 'em down you Tarheel Warriors!. Yee-hah!

Hey David,
I use Picasso and it seems to work fine. Ofcourse not being very computer savvy it took me over an hour to figure it out, and I'm still not quite sure what I did.
I can relate to your quest to get your coworkers to quit smoking. I watch my mom suffer daily with COPD and asthma, and she quit 30 years ago!!!
