Sonia of the wonderful Leaves of Grass has graciously suggested that I post pictures of my holiday in Egypt a few years back. I would love to but my photography/picture issues are still not resolved due to a combination of Blogger upload feature problems; wanting to sort out this and all my other minor computer glitches at one time with my computer chap; diary coordination issues with my computer chap; ignorance on my part of anything to do with digital cameras (don't have one yet - temporary (?) cash flow problems), and a total inability to understand Hello/Picasa or Flickr without having someone explain them s-l-o-w-l-y.

Pitiful, but there we are. I learn how things work through seeing someone else demonstrate, not through reading instruction manuals, unfortunately for me.

So to be going on with, for Sonia, here is the one picture of Egypt that I managed to upload before my problems began and which I originally posted in a few weeks back. I really want to get things sorted by the end of the year, but a positive result of all these irritations is that they are forcing me to pay attention to my writing in the meantime. I can't hide behind pictures.

But I will be so pleased when I can start posting them again.

I'd be happy to help you with Flickr, if you like. We generally stick photos and graphics on our own server, but Flickr has its conveniences, and I have a small account there as well. Which is to say, I have a bit of personal experience with it, and am willing to share.
