      Frank, one of the rules that I can remember when wanting to paste
      pictures is go onto the great web yourself. Don't use Google images
      because they seem to be generally locked. (for easy pasting)

      You can try copying a picture directly from a given site, and then paste
      it directly onto your yahoo message. If it appears as a image, then it
      should show up after it's sent. If not, then you have to use your own
      computer programs first, and then somehow paste it. This is where I
      find myself playing piano and don't quite remember the paths I use.

      I suspect that Bradford has his method mastered. I don't know what it
      is. It's probably quite structured. C.

        Au contraire, Monsieur Forgeron...it is quite clever in a nit-picky
        sort of way... but hasn't a clue when it comes to nuance...as a
        creature of will it has motives but probably without any insight into
        them at all...so, it doesn't have a clue with respect to what
        motivates you with regard to sharing an anecdote.

        It would recognize that the world is complicated...but not
        qualitatively nuanced...it has no appreciation of the quite human
        situation in which you were in...don't you remember the story about
        the kid in the Red Sox uniform?...it actually thought the story was
        about it...you mention "neurons", it will assume you think that brain
        and mind are the same thing.

        Ok, maybe you don't want to be a mean fucker...then spoon feed it...in
        this, Sardonicus will prove useless...G.
