    At one time Houston Camera Exchange was the preeminent camera store in Houston.  That was a while ago, my experience isn't current.  You could call them and ask.

    I should have explained, I use Firefox. 
    You're correct.  It looks right in both IE and Chrome

    No, no.  I'm talking about the picture on the main cache page, Here.  Click on the picture of the trees and stuff and you'll see what it's supposed to look like
    Here's what it looks like to me:

    For Newbies
    I posted this log for newbies.  I did it because of the just previous log that said the cache was wet & full.  It was neither.  Also, because of an earlier needs maintenance log by a newbie who couldn't find it.  But, it reminded me again of a foolish log I posted early in my caching and the reminder caused me to just now write an apology to the owner (who no longer caches) for my 10+ year old stupidness.  I hope the apology will prevent my cringing from the memory every time I get one of these newbie logs.
    And now for something entirely different.
    If you go to the cache page you will see my main photo has been squashed.  I assume this was one of GCs brilliant changes.  Does anybody know how I can unsquash the picture?

    GIS
    Someone sent me a link to This Webpage.  They thought it would be a good addition to my Beginners Guide.  I didn't see the connection but I'm posting this in case others do.

    Found this one a few days ago http://coord.info/GC38G5Q
     
    But, I don't think it can be found anymore because the other caches required to get the coordinates are gone.

    Anybody Know About Rattan?
    We've had this rattan chair for 40 years.  For the last twenty it's been in the attic.  I took it down today and there's discoloration on the reeds.  At first I thought it was dust but not only will it not brush off it will not wash off with Formula 409. Whatever it is it's tenacious  Here are some pictures.

    I've always used some kind of maps.  At first it was MapQuest maps then Google.
  13. Thot added a post in a topic Is it just me or   

    One (of a multiple) reason I don't like the GC version of Google maps is when I expand the map on the cache page I can't figure out which of the many caches is the one I'm looking for.  How do you find the one you clicked on?  It's not in the center and they don't make if flash or turn red or spin  or anything I've figured out.  And they don't let you get the street view and, and, . . .

    Yes but, as far as I know, every time you go to a new map screen, you have to wait for the satellite square on the bottom left to appear and then click it and after you've clicked it you then must click the down arrow -- every time!

    I'm not following.  Do you mean the grey bar on the screen capture I posted?  If so, I don't see a grey bar, except perhaps, the bottom slider.
