    Yes, here too people cross-country ski, in our alp valleys, but because of the mountains people enjoy more alpine skiing, snowboarding and ski mountaineering. Snowshoeing is less common than on the French, Swiss and Austrian side of the Alps, but it’s growing.

    Monica, if you feel sick hearing the old Arrau's long nails on the keys, you can pretend it is his chattering denture instead. :p

    Snowmen... Calvin and Hobbes!

    The same happens to me from time to time, even though I keep them about 1 mm short (except the right thumb, which I bite).

    Monica, how do you get this forum to display pictures like that? I've tried to do this in the "Composition" forum under "Scriabin's harmony" but can't get it to work. I used the URL from the uploaded image in an tag pair but it won't show the picture unless one is logged-in; and even then only under the attached file box. Help.

    Oh, just so this isn't off topic completely. I hate my fingernails, they grow in thick and strong and if I don't cut them about once every week they're up to two or more mm!!! Talk about clicking. Maybe I could use the fingernail clicking as a background rhythm? :wink: Sometimes they catch in the slots between keys and rip painfully, so the longer they grow the slower I have to play!!! :roll:

    Love is the law, love under will.

    I upload my photos to Flickr, a photo sharing site. Then I copy the image location (this thing:
    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/313 ... b0678c.jpg) and stick it in-between the thingamajigs.

    Like this:

    [img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2256/2498283912_13bc79d016_m.jpg

    This is the only way that allows the photo to be viewed when you are not logged in.



    Oh, Alfonso – I didn’t see this earlier. How gross!!! :lol:


    Wait, Michael - the above photo was supposed to show the way the link works, not the photo. Grrr. Sorry. :lol: Let me know if I completely confused you and I'll try again (not to confuse you - LOL - now I'm confused.)

    Monica:

    A thousand thanks and a thank!!! It worked. I found that as long as it is a valid URL to an IMAGE file, it will post. Trying to post it to an introductory page won't work at all. Now people can check out the Scriabin colour wheel as well.

    Oh yea ... (back on topic), ... how could anyone do ANYTHING with nails as long as those shown in that picture from alf?!!

    Love is the law, love under will.

    Yeah, I know - I just looked at that photo again. How disgusting! Don't shake hands with that man, because you will get both your eyes poked out if you do.
