Tom, regarding how to add pix, all I can tell you is how I've long since done it on my "How To Do It" page.  If you can show me a specific instance where you want to add a picture and it isn't working, I can look at that.  Otherwise, I have nothing to go by.

Well I have a good friend who just moved to Nolensville. She loves it there but she is very Christian and has already joined a church. So that will be her social life. I want to be able to fit in and make friends without having to join a church. She knows that I'm not religious but doesn't know about my growing hostility with religious Bible thumpers who seem
M to be getting more judge mental than ever. My mom is Evangelical and has stopped trying to save me. I hate living in Southern California because it is so crowded and expensive and there is no nature but I'm not sure if Tn would work. It would be a place to retire to. Husband is in the music business

I was initially raised Catholic by my grandmother. My father hated the Catholic church. Its good to be in touch with like minded folk instead of biting my tongue.

Thank you for the nice welcome. My area of geophysics is seismology (earthquakes), but I onow you can find seashells in the Sahara. That would be a fun field trip.
