Thank you for the compliments! I'll save it just for you, then. Hope I remember I have it, next season.

This thread was so encouraging that last night I made a half dozen new avatars from which to select my next one, after Mardi Gras. It's always nice to have a few extra in hand. I have no idea which one it will be, though.

I miss his intelligent posts, and still have his recipe page bookmarked on my browser.

Agreed. I was one of the people who used to think that Midpack was a woman

Not at all. It can be a great panacea. Stamping it out could cause some to go postal

David passed away last February at age 82... am just an alter ego, but based on his longevity, estimate another 6 years in which to ride my cycle, and spend my fortune....

Actually, the FBI doesn't care. The person who created the original image can sue for unauthorized copyright violation though. Not likely though, since your use is not depriving them of any significant income and the resolution is too low to be useful to anyone else. Not something to lose sleep over.

I usually use photos I created or in one case inherited so copyright isn't an issue. The only exception was the Santa-on-a-motorcycle art a few weeks ago.

That is one strategically-placed tachometer.

That's true but the avatar compliance office does... I heard they were a mean bunch deprived of civics and latin classes as children, and totally lacking perspective and humour now.

All great avatars. And I am sure that they are in compliance.
