The present and past pictures for the "Caption This" no longer appear on any of my browsers. Instead I get a broken picture symbol. If I click on the symbol or if I enter the address for the picture( http://cr4.globalspec.com/BlogImages/119_L_CaptionThis_CFBDA9C1-C893-5B62-8C18C47DD3EDFEBF.jpg ), I get the error message shown below. Is this a problem with CR4's web page or something on my end? Any help would be appreciated.

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

You mean I can't get away from you even in this tropical paradise? That is not what it said in the "Sandals Resort" commercial.

Next time you knock, you better have a real delivery (mouse pizza), or a box from Amazon, or a large cardboard check for a ka-zillion dollars, or I am coming out of this knot hole with a Benelli clause.

That must be a cousin of the one killed and photographed (was this a fake??) of Confederate troops standing next to a dead pterodactyl.

If they are totally extinct, why do we hear reports of them sighted flying around over Indonesia, or even in the Appalacian Mountains, although some of those old boys see Bigfoot (after a pint of Mountain Dew, not the caffeinated kind, I suspect.).
