How do you post pictures?

And how do you create links?

Lynne can help with that.  She is a "how to post pics and links" guru!

I adore Thee O Christ, and I bless Thee, because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph save souls!

“Don’t waste time in your life trying to get even with your enemies. The grave is a tremendous equalizer. Six weeks after you all are dead, you’ll look pretty much the same. Let the Lord take care of those whom you think have harmed you. All you have to do is love and forgive. Try to forget and leave all else to the Master.”– Mother Angelica

Oh dear! I didn't see this till 5 am which is when I say my rosary. I'll respond when I get home from work, if no one else has jumped in by then...
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

linking photos from other websites is cheesecake, but what about photos from our own devices? (E.g - wanna upload original artworks from my computer but frustrated at not being able to find a way to upload them) Do we send such pics as attachments instead?

Then you would need to load them to an image hosting site and link w/ img tags.

You know, I manage kids, school, meals, laundry, chores, and errands week after week after week.  But, when it comes to something as simple as this....I'm just too darn lazy  :P
