Hello Everyone,

I really appreciate that Lawrence is working with us and is keeping a close eye on the net. When I write emails I use Mozilla Foxfire then when I send it goes to Gmail and then they forward to ibiblio. I went to attach that picture and got the following message from Mozilla Foxfire, "Many email servers do not accept messages with large file attachments. The file size restriction varies depending on the mail server configuration. While you might be able to send a message with a large attachment, the receiving mail server might refuse to accept a message with a large attachment. This is all beyond the control of Thunderbird".

The file size of that picture was 1.38 MB so I opened it with _Picture It_ software and compressed it reducing the size to 25 kB, that's quite a reduction. I hope the picture quality and definition is acceptable, we shall see. On the last send of the picture some of you reported you did receive it some of you didn't which tells me, after thinking about it, that Gmail is passing it on and IBIBLIO is passing it on and the problem is in servers after ibiblio. Will those of you that reported not receiving it please let me know if you received the smaller size and received the attachment. Then I will have learned that in the future I need to compress pictures before I send them and shame on me for not having learned this before. I guess some folks are slow learners. :-)

I've embed the picture again from the 25 kB size and also attach it and lets see what happens. So again the picture is of Gennadiy Eremin and his son Victor taken in Krymsk, Russia at the Krymsk breeding Station in their peach test plot.
