I love the arrangement with our profile picture next to each posting. It’s nice to have a face to go with the name. Still, I notice a lot of posters don’t include their pic. There might be a flower or a landscape picture instead. I think they must be wanted by the law! Then there are those who use somebody else’s photo. I can’t prove it, but there is a lady in Texas who uses her daughter’s, or maybe even her grand daughters pic. The portrait and the posted age don’t match. How about you? Do you use your own picture? How long ago was it taken?

I'm not ashamed of how I look, I just prefer my flowers. However just for you here is a photo of me taken a few weeks ago.

This is an older photo, I need to update it, but that won't be until around the 26th.

Kind of funny, don't you think, Joe as you';re using an image of a much younger than seventy year old person yourself. I'm guessing that's you picture taken when you just started school or something. Maybe the person in Texas is doing the same thing, posting a picture taken long ago of herself. My picture is me, taken withing the last few years.

I know @MarshaMusselman but @Platespinner started the changing to younger pics. She isn't the woman I mentioned in the post though.

@UncleJoe I don't have a problem with whatever picture a person decides to post, although I do enjoy actually seeing what a person looks like. I know that many won't ever share their pictures here or elsewhere online.

What amazes me is the members who keep changing their @names or their photos. I always assume they must have done something bad and are trying to reinvent themselves. Or possibly that you are actually a monkey.

You can't change the @ unless you begin a new account.

Jabo loves flowers and I wish i had her garden its beautiful, just as Blooming Beautiful as she is - I dont interact with people that dont show SOMETHING of who or what they are in their profile - if you want to be secret about your identity, then join a SECRET SOCIETY! I love putting up a seasonal or relevant profile pic now and then, but this one is my favorite - Hello to you too BTW this is a recent photo - like 2 years ago, but the one on my profile is more recent.

@Inlemay I actually love seeing pictures of you, and the current one is very apt. In fact all your photos show what a fun-loving person you are.

I do use my own photo, although it is from a few years ago. I don't consider myself very photogenic, so there are not a lot of photos of me that I like. Gosh, that's my little girl with me who's been gone for ten years.

I probably should update mine as well. The one I'm using now is a picture of some turnings I did in usage. There are plenty of photos of me around. Some of them actually give the impression that I'm better looking than I am.

My computer skills and knowledge don't include uploading pictures onto sites like this and besides there are many of us who don't lind their picture taken.

My avatar used to be a bird. (Remember?) But now, this is me. Taken two or three years ago. I do not photograph very well, and am very self conscious about having my pic taken. My hair is no longer blonde, and I have since changed my shirt. Otherwise, I look about the same.

I took a tip from a well-known European low-fares airline, cropped from a photo I took at about 39,000 feet over France somewhere... Not sure why, perhaps because the azure colour looks cool, I think.

I used to use a picture of myself over at Bubblews and other writing spots. Then my daughter told me that I shouldn't put my picture out all over the internet. She lectured me about internet safety and whatnot until I changed my profile pictures.
