Just wondering how many folks use a cooking picture as their desktop background picture. Ya know, the picture that is behind all the icons on your main computer screen. If so, whatcha using.

I never really gave it much thought till this morning, as my background pic is the one that came with the computer. t ACGP, Inc.

    Morning Tom,

    I nabbed this one from the forum and just love it. Still wondering who was in charge of the 8th egg tho.

    The pic that came with the computer, how original! I use this one of my granddaughter with a foal just several hours old. -RP

    Sunset over Manteo in the Outer Banks (where I'll be in 48 hours!). Not egg related, but it's nice and relaxing to look at when I'm at work and stressed!

    9 times out if 10 I do, meatloaf is one of my favorites. I have used pics posted here (a couple of years ago there was a picture of heads inside eggs as if they were being cooked). Currently I have my son and his baseball coach.

    This earth rise from Nasa's Blue Marble Project is the current desktop photo.

    Usually switch out Hubble Space Telescope shots every couple weeks but this earth photo is spectacular on a 24" screen and will stay up for a while.... fun thread!

    That launch was to commemorate my birthday :)
  • Richard FlRichard Fl Posts: 8,150
    Congratulation on the birthday. Unfortunately they are stopping the shuttle next year and about 9000 jobs are at stake here in Brevard county. OUCH!!
  • Thanks, Dave
    wonderful photo journal and narrative on Nevis!!
    met some folks from St. Kitts and surrounding islands back in April...very nice people
    never knew our founding fathers had Carribean roots :)

    The American space program is in for a big change. Hopefully Obama will change his mind and get us back to what we should be doing in space. My daughter worked for NASA in Florida for years, she pulled maintenance on the Shuttle OHMS engines.

    Thanks! Yep, they are some great folks down there.

    I change mine fairly often. Here's one of my favorites...


    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • That Nikon D90 is digital, you better keep poking around garage sales for Ansel Adams negatives :p

    Morning Tom:

    My desktop is a picture of all five of my grandchildren, but my screen saver is a series of pictures of BGE cooks & setups. Most people don't like it when I am away from the compture long enough for the screen saver to start since it makes everyone hungry!

    Have a GREAT day!
