Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Cant See Some Pics On Threads! Why?

Recommended Posts

The site was upgraded in January of 2011 (I think). A lot of the photos attached to posts did not make it to the new system.

You may want to PM the person that posted the photos and see if they still have them.

Can anyone see this?

If so I guess I did it correctly.

If not, can someone clue me in on how to add images/picts.

Thanks

Two ways to do it.

1. Get an account at a photo hosting service (Photo Bucket, Picasa,etc) or use you own web site. DO NOT use a restricted access site like Facebook. People who are not your Facebook friends will not see the pictures. Post the picture there. Copy the Image URL. In your post, click the small green box (It is labeled "Image"). Paste the URL for the image and click OK. You will get something like this.

If you remove the picture from the photo share site, you will get something like this:

2. Go to the advanced editor by clicking the "More Reply Options" button. You will get an "Attach Files" option below the text editing box. Use it to upload a photo from your computer. You will get something like this:

post-13966-0-73340200-1317518671.jpg

As your upload space on PC is limited, when you run out of room, you will need to delete older images. When that happens, you are left with what r4junc4jun was describing.

If you right click and "view image" on these pictures, you will see that the top picture is from my web site and the bottom picture is stored here on PC.

Ah Yes! The famous, "what happened to the images" thread. The answere is that PC has gotten sooo big that it is nearly impossible to retain all the information that has been aquired over the years. Honestly, the best way to share anything (IMHO) is to create a Windows Movie project and upload it to YouTube. Then create your post and add the link. I've had nothing but problems trying to "share" pics. I learned that last year when trying to add images and create a "how to". The current PC forums are not photo friendly as they once were. I can understand why, and at the same time realize that some things just will take too to post. Time is a precious comodity I don't want to waste.
