Whats the difference between a Jilly Roger and a pirate?

We had fun with cracker jokes and riddles when Jilly and Roger were here and got a few good trinkets too including a pen, address book,nail clippers,stainless steel bookmarker,tiny picture frame etc. It was lovely to see them both and we hada nice chat and Roger played some ditties on Hazel's old guitar which he tuned. Archie showed them his animations and a few card tricks. The wind was howling last night and kept us all awake. The rabbit was very noisy too and Hazel had to get up in the night to muffle her with some extra straw! I went and got the Sunday papers this morning but we were having so much fun making things out of torn cracker left-overs we forgot to look at them. Played Cluedo (Archie won) and cards after a nice lunch of pannini and haloumi cheese etc. They went off about 3-30p.m. to see chums in Stockport and then to Liverpool and Beatle bandland. It's very quiet now and it's back to blogging and Flickr where I am alarmed that I've used 25% of this months ration already - how can this be?

No wonder I have not seen you posting as much lately...too busy having fun at home!

25% of Flickr? How in the heck did that happen? I have never gone over 2%.

I guess Flickr Pro came to a sudden jolting end and I'm back on the 10k limit but even so it seems unlikely I've used 25% with only 6 new photos. maybe the ones Hazel took are on the 3 megapixel setting?

Delightful family
of snowmen!
Can't imagine how
you could use up that
muck flickr space...
did you check with
them?

I've put a query into Flickr help but no answer as yet. They have been short staffed over the xmas period it seems. Maybe that had something to do with it?

I was thinking that even with the non-pro account, you could get about 50 photos a month posted. Seems odd that 6 photos would do it. Do you adjust the size before you post or leave it exactly as you shot it?

Oh yes... of course... silly me.
