    Hi, I just uploaded to your album and everything appears fine. Its probably that the pics are too big. The maximum they should be is 800 pixels wide. if we took pictures straight from members cameras, the servers hard disk would be full in a week:Eeek: So we have to set a size limit

    If you do not know how to resize pictures their are tools you can download and lots of advice here

    Hope this helps:thumb:

    up up and away

    Hi jim got the opportunity through my local resource centre to go glider flying, so couldn't pass up the offer. Want to go hot air ballooning, so as a belated 50th birthday pressie, we hope to take to the air over the Loire Valley in June this year.
    Motorhome has presented me with the ability now to get out and about now as I have the necassay facilities on board. Surgeon's knife left me with undesirable problems and haven finally taken the plunge and purchased a van with fixed beds we can manage day-trips easily.
    :Angry:Some bad news- Coleraine council have overnight just prohibited overnighting in the Mallin head carpark, frequently used by motorhomers here on the lovely North coast. The car park is really a through road so they could not do what they have done with every other car park in the area- put up height restrictors. a local campaigner has been trying for several years to make place more motorhome friendly yet thet said they could not act, yet overnight a decison was made to ban MH parking. On the North West Motorbike weekend in May, there is apparently over 160 motorhomes in this carpark!
    Appears commsense is not commonplace.
    That was all by the way.
    A man of few words, until I get started!
    Thanks for all your assistance,
    Regards, John:thumb:

    Hi wee John a small point the Union flag which is in your Avatar is upside down, it that is a sign of distress and some people would find it disrespectful to the flag

    I think also it is to the right of the red vertical, so it will be the right way up. The part nearest the flagpole will have the broad white band uppermost.

    Flag right

    Just as Ian has noticed it is ok, the Union Jack is sitting the correct way, but only half of it is showing.:BigGrin:

    does it really matter anymore.:Doh:
    its a symbol of what this country USED to be, GREAT Britain, and no other EU country either respects it or gives a f***

    bet if you asked 100 foreigners which way up its supposed to be, 99% wouldnt have a clue what your talking about.

    why dont we just fly a white flag of surrender. :Angry:

    ok I could be wrong, I admit it if the flagpole side is on the left, I thought the flagpole was the other side, but then I am left handed, hee hee. Who cares John, well as you say most people would never even think about it. Great Britain is this case refers to the union of England Ireland (Northern), Scotland and Wales, and no more. It is symbol of union hence union Flag, yes flag not Jack as is only a union jack when flown on a jack staff on a ship. once concidered important enough to require permission to fly it, and as far as I know permission is still required.
    It is a part of the whole thing that makes us English, or British as opposed to european and therefore to me important.
    Rant over.
