Dr.D.: So if Ron puts up the mini-network he talked about, I could connect there. Dr.D.: Where the photos? Dr.D.: Ultimately I could give them to Dale to put up (like I did most of my last year's photos). Dr.D.: Or I could put them up. Dr.D.: If I can get on a computer on the network, I could make a daily webpage for the photos. rich-c: I expect there wil be a lot of them - digital camera tend to encurage that sort of thing

Fury: :D Dr.D.: A chocolate-chip cookie 14" in diameter, covered with chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, and little Hershey's chocolate chips. Fury: mmmmmmmm Dr.D.: I could never eat a whole one...I think Joan and I together ate most of one once. rich-c: how did they ever manage to go out of business serving that? Fury: hehe Dr.D.: Dunno...they also had the best House Salad Dressing I've ever had anywhere. Dr.D.: Something with poppyseeds and celery seeds...a bit sweet, too. rich-c: maybe they bribed to move it somewhere else Dr.D.: It got replaced by a pool hall, er, billiards parlor. rich-c: these days we are seeing much more variety in the salad dressing on our store shelves rich-c: in fact I had a choice of at least ten fat-free ones - good, too
