Question Parquet floor

Here is a thing of beauty. Surely in a palace. But which ruler walked on it??

Exclamation The Czar!!

You won, Trip, you won!!!

That beautiful parquet floor is in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. (The gilt door in the background should be a hint!)

Could it be possible that Queen Beatrix visited the Czar and walked on it too?

We had a great time in St P. Check out our trip report and pictures at http://www.bully4.us/stpete.html

I am not trying to steal Ray's thunder, but this game is fun. We need some other picture posters to join in!

One of the icons immediately above the reply box is the "insert image" tool tip.

The recommended way is to save your images to the CM image gallery. Or source an image on the web directly (tends to be less reliable). Either way, right click the image and select "properties" and copy the full url.

Compose your message. Locate where you want your picture to appear.

Then, click the "insert image" tooltip once, paste the url, and click the tooltip a second time.

If I managed to muck this up, here is a better explanation:

Talking posting pictures

Well, in my particular case, all my best photos are up on my website already. If yours are not you can put them on any of the many photo sites on the web.

So I just do this:

Go to the website where the photo is. Right click on photo and select VIEW PHOTO. This brings up the picture on its own page, with it's particular URL in the address bar at the top.

So I simply highlight the URL and COPY it.

Then I come back to my post, and click the little picture icon at the top of the page where it says PLEASE ENTER THE URL. I PASTE the URL into that box, and BINGO there you are!

Honestly it takes less time to do it than it does to write about it.

Try it! Then give us a stumper!
