Blogger is at it again and I can't put up a picture.  I tried tricking Blogger by writing my own html for the picture, but it didn't work.  Click on the link in the limerick to see the picture that goes with it.

About 8 years ago, Annie was orphaned at one week old.  Someone found her and took her to the police station.  A very kind policeman took her to a vet, who supplied him with a bottle and formula, but he was on duty and couldn't look after a kitten.  The policeman took her to a big box store with a pet center.  As luck would have it, Maw was at the same store buying cat food and saw the tiny kitten and took her home, thinking that maybe her nursing cat would take care of the little orphan.  Unfortunately, the other kittens were much bigger and didn't want to share and neither did the nursing momcat.  Maw learned a whole lot about hand-raising a tiny kitten in a very short time.  Li'l Orphan Annie thrived under Maw's loving care and the time came when she was big enough to go back to the pet center to be adopted.  Maw cried and cried and Paw went to the pet center and brought Annie back home.  Annie has certainly thrived at Forty Paws.  She loves to hide and be found by Maw and Paw, especially under newspapers.

                                  There is a Forty Paws cat called Annie.
                                   She finds places to hide most uncanny,
                                           In the magazine holder,
                                           Or some place bolder.
                                   Everyone loves to play "Where's Annie?"

Oh geez the poor little thing at 1 week ! amazing that it stayed alive.
For your photo problem I only see one solution don't use Blogger uploadings. I only use it when I want that people can make my pictures bigger for everything else I use

That's very easy you don't have to subscribe you just use it and Blogger accepts the htmls without any problem. Everything you see in my sidebar is uploaded with imageshack and when Blogger is on strike I always use that. You just copy and paste in your post !
Let me know if it works but it really should. A lot of people having troubles with Blogger do so.
Probably after a while it will work again on your blog with Blogger. he is very moody lately !
