I have one like that somewhere from the 70's.    I took it from the Iwo Jima.   Where'd you get yours?   Gotta be close.

The original is in the national Gallery with a great collection from the Hudson Valley school -  worth the trip if you're so inclined

Roughly the same—over by the Netherlands Carillon.

Mathguy, upload the picture to a hosting site (I use Photobucket, which is free) and then link it here in IMG tags.

You put the letters IMG in brackets, then the photo URL, then /IMG in brackets. It's similar to WordPerfect formatting codes. The tags tell the forum software how to process the URL.

I prefer imgur which is also free and faster.  http://imgur.com

Mathguy, the tag looks like this:

I use this picture of Ronald Reagan riding a Velociraptor into battle



full version: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/183/0/6/ronald_reagan_riding_a_velociraptor_by_sharpwriter-d55rsh7.jpg

Almost every time I look at this image, I notice a new detail that I haven't seen before.

Is it okay if I don't "understand" it but still think it's really funny?

I have the same Apple leafy tree canopy my MacBook Pro came with 3 years ago.  Quite pretty, actually.

Yeah, I never changed mine either. I figure a lot of smart people worked long and hard to create the perfect theme, who am I to change it.
