I have been trying forever to get an avatar(?) and it kept telling me it was too big. well- it finally accepts my attempt at making the pic smaller then it displays this blob of a pic at left. I HATE COMPUTERS!!!!!! my son tried to help me and he has the patience of a tasmanian devil. will attempt to get pics up soon.I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!

I have a feeling there is NOT a pic to the left. my computer will NOT let me copy/paste, whatever THAT means, and people keep telling me how EASY this is and I have been in tears trying to do this and am NOT unintelligent. It should NOT be like trying to read french(that is if you are a non french speaking person) and my chickens will be stew by the time somebody can actually patiently get thru this with me! VENTED!!!! sorry.
