very cool, Roy.. never knew that.. learn something new everyday. 8)

I was just using it as 'aha!' ..lol here's a common definition (the only one I knew before now): expressing triumph: used to express delight on finding, discovering, or solving something, or on finally succeeding in doing something
I rolled back the rug and eureka - there it was!


[Early 17th century. < Greek heurēka "I have found (it)" < heuriskein "to find," supposedly exclaimed by Archimedes when he discovered the principle of water displacement]

now that I know it's an Aussie word, I'm gonna start saying it with an Australian accent... like 'croykie' (for 'crikey').. how 'bout this: 'YOURAIKA!' :lol: (did I sound like Croc' Dundee?? )

Ok now it makes sense. For a minute there it looks like she is much higher than that. Yeah you will probably need an enclosure big enough for a tree......or at least a bush

yes.. educational it is... 8) ...thanks (the avatar), I like to switch it up a bit from time to time.. they only let you use a pic up to a certain size, so I didn't have much choice.. then I figured out that I could right-click on the image, in My Pictures, that comes up when it's 'generating preview'.. I can save that image and it fits.. :? there's probably a more correct way to do it, but it works for me..

Hey Doug, what I figured out with the avatar was to get the image that you want on the screen and click on to "image" then "resize" and reduce it to the size that works and save it. But there is always more than one way to do things with these computers, so I guess it's what ever floats your boat!

Hey Twitch, don't you love a freshly shed snake. You really see them in they're full colour. Love the California King.

Beautiful snakes you got Twitch. The sheds in the perch there looks pretty cool, all of my snakes like to ball their sheds up.
