Thanks for helping find out where to go, now I just need to figure out how to resize my own photo to get it down to 50KB, right now it's 1.8MB. I'll ask my husband tomorrow, unless it's really easy and somebody can explain how to use your own photo. :D

Okay. First you need to get it on some sort of a photo editing program. Do you have one on your computer? What program is the photo in right now? Then you need to "crop" it. To do that you usually click on a dotted square/rectangle option. Then you drag the square to fit it around the part of the picture you want to keep. Then you hit crop and the part outside the square is deleted. This gives you a smaller pic. If your husband can do it, you might just ask him about it.

I changed mine finally :) celiac3270 YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOURS! :)

Lol :lol: ....a few reasons why I haven't. First, I don't really have anything to put in its place. I don't have a cute dog (used to, but not anymore :( ) that I could use the way Karen does and I don't have any good digital pictures. And all the regular pictures have my family or at least by brother in them so if I scaled it to size, you wouldn't really see me anyway ;) . Also, I've actually become somewhat attached to my waterfall...lol :lol: . I've had it for so long that I feel it's something that's....easily recognizable. I see the waterfall and I don't even need to look at the user name.

So to what am I to change mine? And why? I'm not changing w/o putting up a fight :D

Hey, thanks everyone for the compliments!! I was never a cute kid... so I enjoy the vanity, vicariously (sp?) thru my daughter. *laugh* She is a princess. We just decorated her room. Bright pink (too bright, if you ask me!). Bought a package of Disney' Princess wall decor. 4 sheets, each about a square foot, with the depiction of a princess. Then, she has a princess bed wrap. it's makes her bed look like a carriage, whisking her off to the castle!

".... Oh no! It's midnight! As Cinderella runs to her carriage, she accidentally drops her gluten-free food lists! No time to get them! The next day, the prince sends his men out to find out: Who is the owner of these gluten-free food lists? They knock on the door of Cinderella's home. Her evil stepsisters try to deny that she was ever at the ball!! Cinderella brings out a package of Queen Pamela's gluten-free brownie mix, and they realize she is the woman they have been looking for!"

Awww, c'mon celiac3270, take a walk on the wild side!!!!! ;)

With you surgery giving you the gift of a whole new life, I think you should celebrate with a new avatar to mark the occasion....... Mmmmmmmm, lets see.........

Well, I think we are all going to have to collectively put our heads together and come up with a new "theme" for celiac3270!!!!!

Let's see, you like hockey....... what is your favourite team? Rangers or Islanders... Do you have a favourite player?

Or how about a picture of the sun at sunrise, to signify the dawning of a new day for you....... B)

Do you have a favourite cartoon character?

How about your dream destination.... if you could go anywhere, where would it be?

The possibilities are endless!!!!! :lol:

There are endless possibilites, but about the ones suggested so far....I love hockey, but I'm so annoyed at the strike and as much as I love the sport, a hockey player wouldn't be a...role model to me...I want to do something more intellectual with my life :D . Uhh.....I don't have any dream destination...don't watch cartoons, just reality tv :D:lol: . I could get a pic. of a sunrise from the good old avatar gallery, but that would quickly become as dull as this one :P . I'll think of it and see if I can get a picture of myself or something....It'll be difficult to part with my good old waterfall, though :(

Congratulations, Mela :)
