If nominated I will not run, if elected damn right I will serve and give them the business.

Mrs. Siam Sam returns to Hawaii again, yesterday morning.

As opposed to her original arrival last September.

She was back in Thailand for seven weeks to collect data for a research project she's conducting, tie up some loose ends and check on the slow progress of our Bangkok home being sold (soft market right now).

Great pics. I'd be careful of that guy with her in the shots though. He looks like a shady character to me.

111 pages in, I'm unsure of exactly how and where to upload an image, but I'm game!

What're the protocols?

Generally, I think you have to upload the image to some other site, and then link to it here. Like this: me at DementiaHack '17 (grey shirt on left).

I don't have any current pictures of myself hosted anywhere either, but this is my Twitter Profile Pic - taken a few weeks ago (a mere hair display (I've been growing it out for almost two years)).

I'm not sure if that will work for non-Twitterers, but, hey, I'm old. I'm reaching the age where I can lean on, "I can't figure out this new-fangled stuff that all you kids do, with your TwitterFaceInstaSnaps."

Arnold Winkelreid was maintaining the gallery but he has been MIA since 2012. So we are just uploading pictures to Flickr, Photobucket, et al., and posting links in the thread.

Two more from last Saturday, while we were enjoying the mild outdoors while back East was buried under a ton of freezing snow. Me at Makapuu Point, here and here. This is not the exact point, but it's close by. Makapuu Point itself has an old lighthouse but is all fenced off now. It's the easternmost point on the island of Oahu.

It's late in the season, but we still saw some whales in the ocean -- humpbacks, two or three of them, breaching a little and spouting.

Trail info here.

Well, since Photobucket finally ruined the beautiful thing that they used to be, all of my Photobucket links are surely broken--I'm reposting my most recent photo, from a better hosting site.

Ready to play some jazz!

OK, here's a link from October 2015 -- me and my 'crew'. We were costumed for a dinner theater play at a fund raising event we staged, in case you wondered if I always dress like that.

LOL. People did ask that, and openly wondered if my ladies were my personal hit squad. I replied that we never, ever discussed 'wet work' with outsiders.

Don't know where the pic ended up then. Certainly wasn't here. Good luck on your next attempt.

Oh, and by the way, it's better to actually contribute to the MESSAGEBOARD before posting pics. The SDMB isn't a dating-site, and we don't actually care what you look like provided you can string a coherent sentence together with some lucid thoughts.

Bonus points if you can spell!

I sent the pic to the email I thought I saw in the original post. I'll try agian, if that's okay. And I didn't know that it was a requirement to have been here for a long time before sending a pic; I was under the impression that any registered member could. But whatevs, when in Rome. 😀

He/she did. I see two posts in other threads before their first one here.

Arnold is no longer responding to emails/maintaining the photo gallery: you need to host the photo yourself, then post a link here. I can understand not wanting to read through all 23 pages of this thread, but if you'd skipped ahead to last page or two you would have figured that out. IMO, a good rule of thumb for long threads is that you should read at least the first and last pages (so you know how it started and what the current status of things is).

And while kambuckta is right that your posts are more important than your looks, there's certainly no rule about waiting to share a picture!

Welcome to the Dope!

Misnomer, thank you for the good advice and the kind welcome! I think I can find something and post that way. I've been lurking, truthfully, for awhile, and what I like about you all is that you can, like, spell and know good usage and grammar and, like, stuff. It's rare and refreshing.

Okay, here are three.

One at the Annual Gettysburg Reenactment last summer.

One on an excursion to St. Michaels in Annapolis, Maryland.

One "normal" one (although I look crabby, I'm just trying to be dramatic )

Since it's been bumped recently, I'll share an updated "as I usually appear" photo and some different looks I experimented with during a recent production of HAIRSPRAY:

Drab
Flab
Wham
Jackie
Gams
Fab
Glam

Not bad for 50 years old. I'm still a size 4/6 too.

Great pics! I love that look on your face! It reminds me of a cat who got up a tree and is thinking, "Now how do I get DOWN??!!" Actually that looks like that was a very cool trip!

Can I please remind everyone once again that you can post a photo in your user profile that anyone can look at just by clicking on your name.

This is, IMO, the very best way to share your image with other Dopers. Everyone can see your photo when it's in your profile... not just people who stumble onto this particular thread and choose to click on a link to a random pic-sharing site.

Arnold hasn't been around in a long time to keep his site going so let's encourage folks to add a photos to their profiles.

Group 3 Aviation sent me this photo of me and N940SM from the early-'90s. They were Santa Monica Heli Services back then, and the photo was taken on the north side of Santa Monica Airport.

I know. I wish there was a way to "loudly" get this info across. I wish a mod would take it up as his/her cause and make a sticky or something.

I did it once a while ago but i don't remember exactly how. Tried it right now and couldn't figure it out either. I'm embarrassed to be advising others to do it when I can't myself!

(Too late to Edit)

I've started a thread in ATMB asking how to upload a photo to one's profile.


ETA: Go to "User CP"

Under "Your Control Panel" on the top left side of the page click on "Edit Profile Picture". It's the third item down after "Profile Privacy".

I'd completely forgotten that I had a picture in my profile already! Anyway, I just updated it: the one there now was taken in May (the previous one was a few years old).
