It's because of the very long URL in caratzas post above.
I sure do wish we'd get into the habit of avoiding extra long URLs or extra-large photos that cause this problem.
URL's can be shrunk at any one of a couple hundred websites that will shrink them for users ... and photos can be put behind a link or a thumbnail (even a very big thumbnail) if it is desired to make available a very large version of the photo.

    I thought pi was exactly 3 1/7...no more and no less?

      Actually 3 and 1/7th is fairly close but in the mathematical world, it is pretty far off. Here it is to 500 decimal places:

      Some folks have taken it out to millions of decimal places but this is only 500.

        I thought the hamburger was invented in Seymour Wisconsin in 1885. When you go through the town it has that sign about being the home of the hamburger. I guess at this point does it really matter. I am all for a good double cheeseburger. Sounds like its time for a trip to Culvers tommorrow.
