Very interesting and dark, this '78 article. Do you have the rest of it Char?

BTW on that Irish stop sign, it looks a bit phoney and I've never actually seen one in the country. Not saying they don't exist, but I doubt they are common practice.

Yeah, it seems the few articles I've read about him from that time frame seemed to focus on his "dark" side.

But, as Lightfoot said,

"keep your mind a mystery, runnin' hot and cold."

Eagerly awaiting the '68 piece.

Sorry folks I got the first 5 pages or so..but i am destroying the magazine folding it and jaming it into my copy machine. So I have stopped. I'll have to go to a store with a bigger scanner. I'll put what i have and we'll either wait for the rest of it from me or John F.. ...john

if you try it and it's too big you will get a message telling you...you should be able to re-size it with your scanner programme.

Yes well bmp files are more or less the raw image file so they are always huge. when you scanned them you should have saved them as jpgs
Too late now but never fear there are free workarounds and converters.
The solution is to use an image editing program if you have one
you almost certainly have something that came with your scanner
If you haven't google for a free one you will probably find GIMP (GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program) or Picasa or Vicman's Photo Editor or Irfanview,but if googling and then downloading and installing is to much effort, then if you have a Windoze PC you will already have the humble Microsoft Paint.I often use this for quick image format conversions. Simply open each bmp file with Paint then save it. As you do that use the "save as type" drop down feature of the saving dialog box to select a smaller format from the 8 presented. jpg is my preferred one or else png
At this moment my copy of the 1968 magazine is no longer where it was originally "safely" saved 10 years ago so more searching is called for, Sorry
