Aha!!! I finally figured out how to get gravatar to update me! So, these are my babies. <vbg>
Michelle, wonderful picture – those aren’t babies they are strapping young men …but of course they will always be your babies. Lovely pics everyone, nice to see meaningful things and people.sherazParticipant
I choose a picture I took at Ft. Scott in OK when visiting my sister.
Linda, I want you to take me to England and show me the neat stuff – not necessarily the touristy stuff, either!
I am enjoying everyone’s new look. It’s kind of different – and fun! =)
Sheraz, you have it right – often the neat stuff in a country is not the usual touristy stuff – people miss a lot in my home country because they stick too closely to the tourist beat. Get off the beaten track and there are real treasures to be found. My hometown in the pic is Stratford Upon Avon, and the picture shows the Shakespeare Theatre which I used to visit often. I lived in the tourist town next to London and it is neat, but there is so much more to the country and the people. Now I am here in the US I love to see the tourist places, but some of the memorable things have been nothing to do with tourism. Wish I could hire a big plane and take everyone who wanted to go…we would really have some mother culture and of course tea. That is a very pretty pic you have from OK as well. Linda
This is a test…thepinkballerinaParticipant
Updating mine to a picture of myself and my youngest daughter, Sophia.
Bookworm, Nice picture!
FYI, it took about a minute or two for it to update my picture, in case anyone was wondering.suzukimomParticipant
It took mine about 5 minutes… the help on the Gravatar site said it can take up to 20 minutes….
Hmm…thought I knew why it wasn’t working for me. I’ll check back in 20mins and see if that’s it.
Nope…wonder what I’m doing wrong. I may not get another chance to check this out for a couple of days, but will figure it out!HomeschoolScrapbookParticipant
Great thread! Love seeing everyone’s avatars!
Seeing a face is so much more personal to me…but I’ve been PARANOID about my pic being on the internet in the past. I recently decided to have an “alter-ego” (HomeschoolScrapbook) with my photo so it isn’t associated with my full name. I’m feeling better about it as I use it and I’m liking that I’m being more relational with the photo of my face.
That isn’t a judgment on anyone who uses no avatar or a non-face photo…I’m just sharing that I used to have no avatar and now I’m using my face and I like it! 🙂RobinPParticipant
This is fun. I’ve had mine now for quite awhile. Thing about avatars on this site, they are so tiny, so even if our pics are up, I have a hard time making out much detail.
Linda, I’d love to visit your hometown, too. We have “French sons” (former exchange students with whom we keep in close contact) and they want us to come visit. Having personal tour guides (one is from Paris and one from Brittany but has ties in the Alps and Italy) we could go anywhere we want with them. We told them if we ever come, keep us out of the tourist trap and show us your country.artcmomto3Participant
Love seeing all the avatars, even if they are not personal photos. Much better than the gray box. A small image helps to associate that person with their name. Great idea, OP!LadyofthehouseMember
Ok, I have been trying, really! I work from an iPad and the gravatar site doesn’t seem to want to accept a URL when I try to paste one, but when I try the download from your hard drive option it won’t let me select something out of my photos either………anyone else set this up from an iPad and how did you do it?
Yes! Figured out what I was doing wrong! (silly me)
This is part of the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Though we’ve been living on the NS mainland for eight years, most of my DH’s family is still in Cape Breton and we visit often. Beautiful!
4myboys that looks like a wonderful place, I shall look that up on the computer to learn more about it – it looks beautiful. Linda
