At the beginning…

…. there was a page full of geeky stuff inviting me to play.  So I am starting.  Hopefully this will relieve my friends of  those lengthy emails complete with endless photos.

Now, all that we need is for me to learn how to use this wonderful machinery.

First an image….

Now, I wonder if I can take a piece of email and post it here….hmmm.  Lets try.
This is near Okanagan Falls, showing what the landscape is like without irrigation from mountain reservoirs:

The trees are “Bull Pine”  a variant of  the Ponderosa Pine that grows all along the Interior Plateau of Western North America from BC to Mexico.  The grey plants are Antelope Bush.  You can also see the brunch grass and the occasional rabbbit bush that grows in this zone.  The brilliant yellow flowers are Sunflowers, now intensely studied as a key plant in the theories of hybridization.  http://www.publicaffairs.ubc.ca/ubcreports/2006/06jul06/sunflower.html

Now it’s time to try to upload two images at once.  How about these two:

Couldn’t get two images that were separated in a file.  Lets try several in a file….

Can’t seem to upload a batch of images…. yet.  I’ll have to study more to find how to do that.

This is enough for my first attempt.

Lets Publish and hear from the critics!
