    Only thing I can think of is: Did you try downloading it to your computer first, then opening it?

    It might be confused by the net :)

    Otherwise you need a graphics program, like Realplayer. http://www.real.com/

    yes, it's free :D :D :D

Have some good NC Bar-be-que, fried chicken and etc. Exchange presents and hit the road back to go to Pam's folks' for presents. Will be a very long day. Warm day today. Have a good one and God bless all.

    Ever wonder why some kids never have a nice Christmas

    Have you ever wondered why some poor kids in mountains here and in places in the South never get a decent Christmas except form the Salvation Army or the Marine Reserve's Toys For Tots?

    Well, I have and after wading thru gages cyber topic papers byt the intelectualy elite , studies and material on economics and social science and comparing the demographics on google, I have found what I believe to be the causation..

    It is on this site I finaly googled up. It was not really surprising however and so simple I missed it in my wondering. The forest for the trees sort of thing.

    Here is what I found:

    http://www.jingleshells.com/flash_content/flash_content.html

    Well I finished playing Santa going from the car trunk to the tree at 4 AM and having wasted an hour on line, I am going to bed and dream of visons of MTH coal miners and K Line coal hoppers dancing true my head.

    Oh, my brother and the family opend gifts the the parents house, I am thankful to the LOrd that they are still well, right minded and yet with us an other year....

    Anyway he gave me an antiquesdLionel mirror (mirrow?..I am dislexic as heck and never learned tio spell or write well, sorry)..It looks like a very old Beer joint wall piece only instead of saying Stroah's or Iron City it has a pic of a kid and a train used in advertising in the 1020s.

    Will be great in the train room should I get one made.

    Have fun in the morning

    HO HO HO, Merry Christmas. Pouring rain. Really coming down. Santa has been and left Pam a bag of coal. Got a MTH bag that says "coal" and put some Secenic Express O gauge coal in it. Left it on top of her other goodies. ;) Merry Christmas
