It's the only photo after hours of searching that I could find that was same size as others.  I cannot do banners and crop and cut or whatever you do, as I am a total dumbo with computers.  So I had to search high and low.  The pics of Madeleine in the middle is actually one picture.  There is method in my madness though, all pictures have Madeleine in them, and you have the best known, the last and an age progression photo.   Not the latest Grange one cos I couldn't make it fit.  Sorry, best I can do, I am learning more as time goes on slowly, don't forget I am an old lady.

You revealed recently that the image was Kirsten Dunstable I believe, I thought it was Wonder Woman (seriously!) and always had a giggle, and of course think you are!


Spell check said Dunstable ...I like it!

Glad you said that - I can`t bear to look at it either.  I feel as if I`m being manipulated or hypnotised by it. Always look away or cover it up.  I feel the same about the LOOK posters and pictures of the McCanns - they both make me feel sick - `orrid people. Don`t go trying to change the pics though CF - I just don`t look at them.

Funny - I was reminding my mother of the Super Gran programme just this week. It's one of the few things I used to watch as a child that I probably still could now without feeling embarrassed.

There are some strange oddities - no, I don't mean any people! That's not something I have a problem with here.

On Facebook though I am quite often the only person who can't see an attachment that someone has posted.

Don't know why that is happening ddl, but do the usual, delete all cookies from the forum, and your ipad/computer/phone, and delete browsing history.  Then log out and log in, sometimes works scratch
