I don't know what's up (doc) but there's no picture, not even a red cross place-marker, showing for me. I've reloaded the page - nada. It's not present in the "Replying to" box above the editor.

What on earth are you talking about ? Has nanny blocked a pic ? The title (from 'save as') reads, "sup-babe-you-like-what-you-see". It can even be traced......

That site is blocked by nanny.

The OP just looks like the OPer forgot to include the pic. Most peculiar. Shall check from home later.

The actual crash was horrific, it's a wonder old "spring arm" survived.
