Hrmpphh Sorry but I do not understand why my two impecable image display links each containing a perfectly valid picture address that I had already verified failed dismally to show the pictures an integral part of my message
I insist that I did it all correctly so I'll give the forum one more chance to redeem itself

If
you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or
shoplifting?

Oops I usually pick that problem up when doing a preview but today my browser and/or internet connection is feeling liverish so it is taking too long to get the preview up if it actualy deigns to do so.I'll go back and edit it

OK (NOT OK) you stoopid forum have it your own ignorant way
But I want my readers to be able to see the two screenshots I made at great personal effort to illustrate my narrative
now they will jolly well have to click the basic hyperlinks in turn . it is not good enough I tell you.
Oops again it were all my fault I only put a single forward slash in my original urls!! lets try again.
and I had too many square brackets in the first also
dear oh dear


Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?

Default Pandora Radio presents GL

Further to my searches for that earlier Gordon Lightfoot who owned an expensive saddle possibly at the time of the civil war
I reasoned that the gentleman in question must have been of some standing (or sitting?)
so I just googled for "general Gordon Lighfoot"
and was surprised and delighted to find this web page:-
http://celebrities.boardreader.com/p...Lightfoot.html

listing no less than 1928 results for GL which could take an age to check out!!
BUT of immediate interest at the very top I spotted this advert:-
Early Morning Rain Radio
Listen to Gordon Lightfoot Free Unlimited Listening
which actually links to
http://www.pandora.com/?tc=x-036796-...rdon+Lightfoot

"We created it's a new kind of radio
stations that play only music you like"
It started by finding then playing "Rainy Day People"
[img]http:/www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot/images/pandora_radio.jpg[/img]
Which played in full then the next Baby Step Back started
There is a forward button and I saw that the following track was "Up On The roof" by James Taylor so
maybe they could only find the two by GL??
then it was "The Only Living Boy In New York" by S and G
next a Cat Stevens track "Tuesday's Dead"
folowed by "Time In A Bottle" by Jim Croce
then back to GL with "Beautiful"
so it is quite the eclectic site in my book!!
From where they found the three GL tracks I have no idea and they do not tell you but at least it gives you a picture of the relevant album cover
Brilliant idea my only gripe is that being on this cretinous dial up connection for hopefully only a while longer the player which is a flash device took ages to load and the streaming is annoyingly disjointed
there is a link to an explanation of how the thing is put together which opens a blog:-
http://blog.pandora.com/podcast/
where I read
"Elsewhere on Pandora, you can see our video coverage of the South By Southwest music festivalin Austin, TX. That main video site will feature a new video every Wednesday, so keep tuning in and we'll keep showing you intriguing corners of the music universe. Thanks for spending time with us."
Now to check other items on the Board Reader menu:-
[img]http:/www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot/images/board_reader_Menu.jpg[/img]
trying "fans" first
http://celebrities.boardreader.com/p...foot/Fans.html
Hmmh the number one item was a link to a 6 day old posting by happipuppi aka borderstone on the IMDB
"re how many people do you know who have the same taste in music as you?
I know people who are Mariah fans like me and gordon lightfoot fans like me but..... I know very few who like asmany styles as I do"
the "news" link had 28 results (some of pornographic)
the "biography" link however produced Sweet Fanny Adams
"photos" was largely irrelevant or "porno" again
so that's a strange site as it has appaerently completely ignored the most significant "board" here at corfid.
after about 6 songs I then told that to continue listening for free I must register and sign in so here goes
Ain't life grand!!!
How
is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good
idea to put wheels on luggage?
