Rosebud, most likely it's because not everyone is "computer savvy". I have a picture, and a signature, but I had ALOT of help and guidance from other CruiseMates. I honestly don't know what I'm doing!!

Wouldn't that be considered "Profiling"??

I'd love to see more of them.

Take care,
Mike

I agree.... just nice to see a face with a name. Yeah, Venice, that's me at my company Christmas party last year.

Eddie, you're looking kinda blue! haha

Just in case some people were wondering, I have a great resemblance to the mascot of the Buffalo Bills, "Billy Buffalo". Good lookin', eh?

eddie--
Does that mean that Sea Trekker and I will have to start looking like the Tampa Bay Buccaneer mascot--the Pirate?

I'd rather look like one of the cheerleaders!! Anyone who has met me knows that I'm not that , er, tall!!


I wish I knew more about how to post pictures online but----that's where the computer savvy and time come in. I'm happy to just be able to post.

Picture, 4' 11 1/2", curled short hair from a perm, and those little glasses. RayB or Ken, do you have a picture from the get-togethers you can put on here in my spot??

Rosebud - I was going to say the same as Venice, if we were all as beautiful as you there would be no problem. Welcome to the site.

The truth is the camera loves some people, and I am not one of them. I usually look like those Enquirer "World's Worst Hair Day What was He Thinking?" pictures without even trying.

Therefore, I dislike having my picture taken a lot. And my wife, who is pretty photogenic loves it, so I am always stuck having to pose and hating it.

The worst thing is, I'm NOT one of those people who can turn on a smile for a picture - it feels so phony to me!!!! And even if I try I just don't have a "natural" toothy smile. It is truly embarassing. I try to smile, and people say to me "why are making fun?" or "Quit making that face and smile" what can I say, I am trying to smile.... geeze, its humiliating

the truth be known..most of us don't want pictures of ourselves on this site because we do not want to be recognized from "America's Most Wanted"

The reason why Diamond Dave the Wave has pictures of himself all over this site is because he is in the Federal Witness Protection Program and he foolish thinks he is safe from his 4 ex wives who instead of paying his alimony money to, he spent the money on Royal Caribbean cruises achieving his diamond status (VBG) and on his extensive speedo collection

I have a pic that I tried to post but it is too big. I bravely asked for advice but I just have no clue how to trim it to size even with the help of kind CruiseMates that tried to explain it.
