Try screenshotting it, cropping the edges and posting the screenshot, works for me when a photo is too big (kb wise)

So, two birds with one stone then.

Which reminds me of a joke;
That's a problematic saying isn't it?
I mean, who is going around killing birds with stones, and why would you want to be more efficient at doing it?

Because if the birds eat all the seeds you’re planting, your family starves. So, you get your kids out into the fields to whack ‘em. lf they bag a bird or two: bonus ball! Tonight we get meat!

Daedalus, that's who. ;)

I love Daedalus.

Daedalus was a nut job!
Not only did he build some kind of underground maze-like mansion for a cow-like chimera, he also caused his own son to die by drowning during an ill-advised and failed attempt at a flight to escape their island home using wings he had made himself out of wax and feathers.

a Renault Megan Scenic
Known issues;
Wayward steering? Worn 'swivel hubs' - can be very expensive to replace.
Intermittent power loss for no apparent reason? The cause of this on the PSA group vehicles is (weirdly) a worn 'brake light sensor' which instructs the engine management unit to think you're braking, thus cutting the power. The sensor is only a plastic thing which costs about £20 but it is fitted in a difficult to access place on the rear-side of the pedal-box. On right-hand-drive cars the actual 'pedal box' is still on the left hand side because, well, 'French'. So you need to look under the glove box on the passenger side for the extension rods coming from the pedals on the drivers side.
Windows (electric) suddenly refusing to wind up and down? Failed regulator unit inside the door - a design fault meant that these were not properly insulated from the weather and water can drip in through the window seal above. Costs about £70. Easy to replace.

The bird was on the other side of the valley. Shy birds.

The Robin was a stones throw away, but much smaller than the Bustards who even at the distance I saw them, were huge.

(Thats my Christmas card sorted.)

Bustards?!? God almighty those look like big birds. How amazing to see them. Can one raise them like turkeys or geese? (I assume they are good to eat.)

Weird stuff I have been buying lately: lightbulbs of different color temperatures and intensities. I am trying to train myself to see differently, for my oil paining hobby.

Daedalus and Icarus were doing fine with the wings until Icarus overdid the upward swooping.

I think Icarus's problem was he was a Teen.

His Dad told him not to fly to close to the sun.

So guess what he did?
