Now you will notice the pictures that I posted off photobucket are no longer showing. They have sent emails to all their members asking for $399 to use their site for 3rd party hosting, this is to be paid each year. So most of the members on other forums have deleted their accounts and give photobucket the finger.

Hi Barry,
I use www.picr.de a free hosting site, it's very to easy to use and you can choose various options for sizing the pictures.
They accept donations to the site if yuu feel inclined that way.
I saw the photobucket message earlier and I think they been hacked by scammers after your money.

You might consider using Flickr. ( https://www.flickr.com ) It's free to use, it's in English and it has many options which make it easy to share photos.
You can edit and resize photos and if you want to embed a photo in this forum, you just click on the share arrow, select or change size, select BB code, copy the code ( ctrl c ) which you then paste ( ctrl v) into your message. Simples.

This is an example with Medium 500 x 356 selected.:-

Hi Barry, use the English version it's a lot quicker. Google will automatically translate the pages.

Our black cat also has claws which do not fully retract; unless your interloper is old of course....
Lovely cat, I bet it has a bikini too, small white area on chest and groin.

My daughter's black cat has a white flash on it's chest but this one is all black. She only appeared in the area earlier this year and nobody knows where she came from or her age although I don't think she is very old. She is an expert scrounger and has put on quite a bit of weight. Most of the neighbours feed her but she has developed a liking for my sofa and sneaks in whenever she can.

I think there is a replica at RAF Barnham, which was built to store and maintain atomic weapons,

Had to deliver a car to Cotswold BMW in Cheltenham on Friday. It is a very impressive place. Saw this in the reception area. Not sure what it is exactly.
