  1. I am also getting cat-sitting bookings again. Life resumes. Paulette
  2. I got a HAIRCUT... WHOOPIE... NYC is definitely coming to life as we are in the second stage of re-opening. More people on the streets and my neighborhood salon is open. The chairs have always been a decent distance apart and I was happy to see that we didn't have plexiglass partitions. We were all in masks which is weird but I got a great cut as usual. It's not a fancy place... The owner and almost all the staff are Chinese. Most clients have been going there for years and happy to see everyone. The owner and the woman who cuts my hair are both left-handed. I wonder if they need special scissors. Betty can tell us. She's another of those lefty geniuses. Paulette
  3. Since you can make a worm look this beautiful maybe I'd better have you take my picture.. Paulette
  4. I didn't quite get the "anorak" since I thought it was a jacket... but I found this... rather strong but I get your point.. Anorak" /ˈænəræk/ is a British slang term which refers to a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public. I was mostly kidding around but I have to admit that I cringe at those photos before I start wondering if the only men in the UK are the funny-looking ones. I guess we should be careful not to get carried away with this but I bet most of the guys here are pretty darn good in their attitudes towards women. Just don't start submitting those pics to the Challenge!!!!😁 Paulette
  5. Hmmmmm. I suspect it's a matter of male photographers enjoying the taking pics of scantily clad women. Is that at all possible? Paulette
  6. My leaping bear did it again. Two editorial websites. Money ain't good for those darn websites.... but nice to keep on selling.... Polar Bear in the Svalbard Archipelago Paulette
  7. You don't show any images on sale. Have you done the work in the Image Manager? Paulette
  8. Oh my. I hadn't even thought of that. They do keep an eye on me. Paulette
  9. I uploaded 3 three weeks ago and one passed quickly. The other two no action. I don't seem to make sales there anyway. I think I need to apply myself to learning to be creative in that style. Paulette
  10. It probably looked like a delicious bug. Chickens are not known for their smarts. Paulette
  11. Got some even light yesterday morning. First thing in the morning seems to be my best opportunity. The little things don't even have feathers now and barely peek up. I suppose I should take a ladder down to get a better angle but I'm afraid of freaking out mamma and scaring her away. I shall do what I can without harming them. Paulette
  12. That guy in the back is sure strutting. Makes me smile. Thanks. Paulette
  13. I've been checking our robin's nest every morning and I was worried that I wasn't seeing the mom sitting on the nest and sometimes she wasn't around. This morning I saw three little chicks!!!! Just big enough to stick up their open mouths. I took some pics but the light was difficult -- dark with some very bright sun spots. I'll go out earlier tomorrow and try some more. Such fun. Paulette
  14. Unfortunately you can't opt out until April. I know it's a long way away. I've been getting some $2 distributor bulk sale discounts in Estonia that I would like to get out of but can't for a while. You go to Additional Revenue Options on your dashboard. Paulette
  15. You will probably find your image on theculturetrip.com. If you opt out of NU in April you may still be making sales to them but they will pay $3. So sad to see these amounts. Paulette
  16. Thank you for reminding me of the help I will get from Apple. I always get the AppleCare and I think they train the phone help to be very, very soothing. I have always felt well taken care of. I am also within walking distance of two Apple stores. Paulette
  17. Thank you, Michael. The laptop I am replacing is more than 10 years old so you can see I only move forward very slowly. I know one of the reasons I have delayed is I will have to set up the new one, get the Adobe subscription (yikes) and learn new things. All this time locked down should have been a good time to do all that but my brain has not been very good at focusing. We are now in the first step of reopening NYC so I may come to life as the city does. So far it doesn't seem that thousands of protestors marching and shouting for hours has hurt us. I don't know how that can be possible but we are OK so far. Please don't anyone take that as a political statement. Just the facts, ma'am. Paulette
  18. Please don't make me sorry I encouraged you to stay on the Forum. No politics, please. It can ruin it for all of us. Paulette
  19. I am wondering what this might mean in practical terms for me. I was planning to buy a new MacBookPro last year and then the money had to go to a dental implant (which is still not implanted due to coronavirus shutdowns) and so I was going to get it this year with people seeming to love the newest one. Of course the plan has been delayed again because my cat-sitting income disappeared with no one traveling. Things will pick up again in about a month so maybe I will buy it this year. But..... now something new making me wonder if I should wait for the new shiny thing. Paulette
  20. My tests indicate that the caption carries the most weight with the super tags coming second. If you put something in the caption and also make it a supertag it will give you the best chance of coming up high in a search. Paulette
  21. Oh, that's me. I walk more slowly than anyone. When I was in the Falkland Islands I found that even penguins walk faster than I do. I used to blame it on my short legs but that doesn't work with penguins. Paulette
  22. I bought myself some flowers for the first time in a long time. The city is opening up very slowly and haltingly and I needed a bit of good cheer. Paulette
  23. I understand why you feel the way you do, Bear, but there is no reason to leave the Forum just because some people occasionally bring up their political ideas. It is not really OK to do that but the best reaction is no reaction. Lots of people enjoy themselves here without giving an inkling of their political positions (which may even be the same as yours). The most popular political position here is "no politics". Paulette
  24. I have to begin with my Kermit the frog... American Bullfrog in New York state Giant Water Lily in the Pantanal, Brazil Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot in the Pantanal, Brazil Paulette
