LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved your burning bush, tahiti. (And we all know there's nothing wrong with that.)

I LOVE the picture, tears of sheer dorkiness sprang to my eyes when I looked at it.

mikenbacismama, from your lips to God's ears.

And it doesn't get better than seeing a beautiful burning bush in Music City while enjoying a cheesesteak made by one of those Philly transplants!

It's very pretty. Nothing has turned here yet because we are in the 80s. I wish I knew how to put pictures here when things turn, because the Natchez State Parkway has some beautiful follage when it turns. Its a scenic highway with overlooks, that starts in Nashville, ends in Mississippi.

Diane, I'm sure your digital camera probably has instructions to do this. You should find a cable to connect to your computer.

I'm sure the foliage down there will be just as striking but, all kidding aside, you should really post them on the TN or Nashville sites, not here. I can honestly say that I don't come here for information on other areas, and I'm sure others feel the same. If I have interest in other states I go to the respective sites.

I usually get a card reader, then take the compact flash out of the camera, put it in the reader, copy the photos to my hard drive. Once you have that done, you get a photo program to make the photos smaller - the one posted was 800 x 600. The only photo program I like to downsize pictures is MGI Photo Suite as it has an option to pick the width or length and automatically adjusts the other number to keep it proportioned.

Once you do that, you need to have a photo sharing site, people use photo bucket and Imageshack which is free.


PHOTO SOFTWARE

Irfanview - IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.

IMO,

The Natchez Trace is one of the 10 most scenic roads I've driven on in the U.S. Absolutely stunning down in the Southern Mississippi area.

Agreed. Appreciate all the info on Nashville but it's not going to be a huge help when I go to NJ. Anyway...I am SO EXCITED...and now am getting nervous (flying with a toddler; having to find the car place at Newark; etc.)...I can't believe the time has finally come.

Last time, I wasn't sure how to get to the car place and some nice guy came along and grabbed my suitcase and chatted with me the entire time he led me to that subway thingie and I assumed he must work for the airport or something, even though he had no uniform on. I tried to slip him two bucks as he was saying goodbye and he laughed "Get out of here!" and waved and was on his merry way! I don't believe I can count on that just happening out of the blue again so I'd better figure out where Avis is. I know it can't be all that hard...all I have to do is find that shuttle again.

Then I'll be drivin' up to Bergen, Bergen, drivin' up to Bergen, Bergen...to see my sister and the next morning, my biggest "little guy"--age 21 and eight inches taller than I--yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

And my brother and his girlfriend, and my soon-to-be daughter-in-law and my cousin and her children and...and...I don't remember who else. For all I know they invited the mailman too. That's fine with me. My family, the mailman and I will all drive to go apple picking and up to Oktoberfest at Bear Mountain. I...can't...wait! (Did I mention that I can't wait?)

You should be able to find the layout of Newark airport online. I know Philly was online last time I checked.

That is going to be a tough airplane ride back, I'll bet. As exhilirating as the trip back is, I find with a lot of these vacations, the ensuing low is always lower than the high. I remember driving back to the Philly airport a few weeks ago, driving down 70 through the Pine Barrens, there was definitely a sense of melancholy setting in. Particularly after we stopped into the Medford WaWa (right next to where we used to live) to get a pork roll sandwich, with bagels. Then it was through Marlton, Cherry Hill, then over the Whitman Bridge, and bye bye for at least a year. Though I was looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again, there was a definite sense of melancholy.
