    The Cliffs of Moher! I've been there! Unbelievably gorgeous and impressive. And your quilt is beautifully done!

We went back 3 years ago for our 25 wedding anniversary and the changes...oh sigh...fencing...shops...and no music....but there was a true Irish mist...just a soft rain.....
    We were there, too, in '97, on a beautiful sunny day and before they made it so commercial. It was just a walk up a path, beside which a woman sat playing a guitar and singing, and then at the top those wild, sheer cliffs! I'll never forget that sight. My DS and DIL (she's Irish) went back a few years later and he was so glad he saw it before all the "improvements" ......ugh!

    Ploverwi2: Above your post (box if you will) there are six icons. The 3rd one to the right of the "envelope" is the icon for posting photographs. A box will come up - there is a tab "from computer" or "URL" photos, with a "browes" option. Click the "browes" option and it will take you to your computer. Find the photo (jpeg) that you want to upload and select it. When it shows up in the blank space, select "upload files". Give it time. It will appear under your text as letters and numbers and when you hit the "post" button (wait a bit) it will show up under your text. You will also have a chance to "edit" your text if you find a mistake. Try it and see how it goes. It really is not that difficult. Once you do it you will see that it works well. If you have any problems, let me know and I will try to help you further. Yolanda Wood River
