Cowart's Common Room

I cannot post pictures here anymore as I use my iPhone but I do put them on Facebook. So there is not a selfie of me with Etna in the background here. Or a photo of it erupting taken of a pic in the Telegraph. Having stayed in Toremino (Spelling?) earlier this year, I feel particularly attached!

Fennie's Avatar Yes the views of Etna erupting are certainly impressive. The devil is stoking the fires of the inferno! But somehow you'd think that all this heat might have some effect on global warming. If we could only open some more volcanoes we would be warmer and if we could close them again we would be cooler. After all what is a volcano but an enormous patio heater? And do volcanoes run on renewable energy? But they can't, can they? I mean the earth must eventually cool down completely. Sad Charles Dickens climbed Vesuvius I believe whenn it was erupting and the sparks singed his trousers. Very Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar It was only smouldering gently when I was there in 1980, I was heartily disappointed when it went off in 1981 that it didn't do it the year before. Rolling Eyes
Vesuvius smouldered gently too when our school climbed it, letting off sulphurous odours that even the teenage boys couldn't match. Very Happy

Lampworkbeader's Avatar Try sending your photo to yourself via an email, then save the photo. You can then post it on here with no problem.

Withy Brook's Avatar I thought you had to make it smaller, Lampie?

Fennie's Avatar I used Lampie's method for a long time but it doesn't always work. If it doesn't then try this.

If you have the photo in a photo file (My Pictures) try clicking on the file menu where it says 'export' (Highlight the photo first) you should get a menu that asks how you want to export the file and where to. Try exporting it as a medium sized jpeg to your desktop and from their to Purple Coo.

Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar I have still not mastered posting pics properly from my iPad yet some upload and others don't.

Have you posted more pics on FB Withy? Saw the lovely pic of you on there in Toremino.
