I have waited years for this. When I first wrote the first draft of that article hootoo was not accepting photographs and I told myself I would wait to finish it until I could get one included.
Then as years went by I forgot all about it until one day someone said we are short of edited articles and I remembered= OH yeah, they allow pictures now. Maybe I will give this thing another go.
And didn't it turn out sweet smiley - biggrin

yep, and it showed us Brits a thing or two about hickory trees. The word hickory is in a nursery rhyme

Hickory Dickory Dock.

I wonder if there is a connection?

A little quick research on Tallcase clocks Show most of them in Mahogony, or Alder and Walnut, or ash wood.

Hi Shagbark

I'm not sure what picture you mean? Do you mean there is something wrong with your recent Petrovich Entry?

No, I was referring to the fact that Firefox is displaying my h2g2 articles without graphics. So I saved a copy of my shagbark artilce to my hard drive and displayed it there and the picture is included, but if I look at the shagbark tree article i9n Firefox it shows text only. IE is showing it right but something is definitely wrong with my settings on firefox.

I use Chrome - I like it and it certainly has less problems than Firefox. My mum uses Firefox and it won't let her install Flash, which she really needs because she likes to play games on her laptop.

I'd recommend Chrome to you though smiley - zen
