I really love it when you post photos of Brian, Eppylover, as you have a huge collection. These photos are very unique, and I really appreciate them. I like Brian in his flowered shirt. Neil looks so young and handsome. Why don't you give us the whole sha-bang?
Youthful, yeah, well, he WAS only 31 then, y'know. Just a baby. *sigh*
Only five years older than me! I find that hard to believe. Yet there are also some pictures, especially in the last year or so of his life, where he looked distinctly middle-aged. The rock'n'roll lifestyle was catching up with him, I think.
The Getty site said "card game" (and I do think those are cards in the lower left corner), but what are those strange ...thingies... lying on the table and, it appears, on his glass?
Yeah, it doesn't look quite like cards to me. It almost looks like he's building something with them. How sweet...
1. They're all mostly on my very disorganized hard drive, in a folder called "Brian" of course. Lots of almost-duplicates; i.e., different sizes, resolutions, crops and manips that I just never got around to sorting out. So I couldn't upload them to Photobucket in a big bunch without closely scrutinizing each one.
2. If, IF, they ever got sorted/organized, it would indeed take forever and a day to upload them all to Photobucket in order for them to show up here.
I will try to post more pics of Brian more often. I don't know how much longer I'll even have internet with my own computer.
Within a month or two I probably will be forced to use the public library's computer to go online. Or my niece's if she's at home. Number one priority would be this forum. Number two would be to keep my LJ flisters updated about my life and misc.
In my far-out dreams, someday I will have my own server and domain to host everything myself. Yeah, right!

Thank you Eppylover. Whatever you are able to do is all right with me. I just want you to know you are appreciated. It is not easy being an administrator and monitoring a forum, plus managing a job and home life, too. It does take a lot of work and time to put up photos and getting them to look right. But the results can be fantastic! I realize you are going through a lot right now and are extremely busy. I hope your life goes as smoothly as possible and not be too difficult a transition. Believe, I've been there, done that. I may be going through some life changes in the near future.
If it may be of help to you, I got my Toshiba laptop computer at Best Buy. At the time I used my Best Buy credit card to make the purchase. I also decided to buy myself a 26" Samsung HD TV with it and a HP Photosmart 7180 All-in-One printer. I did not want to get myself a big TV, just one that has a large enough screen and a TV that was not too heavy to move around. As you can see, I made quite a purchase. Also, my mother decided she also wanted a TV for her bedroom, so I used the card to purchase another TV. I am still making the payments for all of them but am almost finished.
I am not sure about your area, but if your city provides Wi-Fi you may have access to internet connection for free. It would be great if you do. Some cities are working to provide this service. So far as I know, AT&T and Verizon provide Wi-Fi service in certain cities. The speed may not be as fast as broadband, but it is free. The trend is steadily growing, getting popular and is expanding to more cities. Hopefully, you can have access to Wi-Fi so you would not have to pay for internet connection.
I use my local cable company to supply the broadband service and service to the TV sets. As far as long distance phone calls, my cable company had been advertising special deals to have me switch my phone service to them. I decided not to switch as so far I feel satisfied using Vonage. The cost for me for using Vonage is $29.99 a month which is deducted each month through debit card. There is unlimited calling to anywhere in the US, its territories, and Canada. You can still use your own phone number when switching to Vonage, or Vonage would provide you with an available phone number. I can save on cost better calling relatives/friends in Europe or any where else using Vonage than through my cable company. As long as the party on the other end has a land line phone, the phone calls are usually free. But if not, the phone calls tend to be cheaper than using the service from my cable company. The thing though is to have broadband service. It is just a suggestion, if it would help.
