January 2013 and Help needed re adding photos

The New Year has come and it is now the 22/1/2013. It is well and truly summer here and we have had very hot days-- combination of hot days and no rain has brought alot of bushfires which have caused havoc, especially in the countryside.We have  had some reprieve a few days ago with some slightly cooler weather and a little rain.

We are a very sad household at the moment. Our beautiful dog, Tess, is no longer with us. She enriched our lives for almost 16 years. She was a great pet --- joined in the backyard cricket and frisbee games when she was younger, made us laugh with her tug of war games and chasings around the house, decorating the hallway with toilet paper from the toilet roll and strewn socks from every room in the house. She loved gardening and always knew when the carrots were ready to be picked-- she always got to them before we did! She knew when you were happy and she knew when you were sad. She was always there wherever we were. There was always her little "woof" if we were out of sight. All that is now a memory and I cannot believe how much I miss her cheery face.

I have been trying to add some photos to this post and when I clicked onto the picture-- it opened , but there is no "Browse" to click onto to get the photos that are in a folder in the computer. I am sure there was a word "Browse" there before to click onto that let you then enter the folders on the computer. There is nothing there and now  I don't know how to post a photo from my collection. It will not let me cut and paste either. I have not had this before-- has anyone else got the same problem and can I please get some advice as to how to overcome it.

I have decided to do some blue and white work--- have just started on a couple of pieces and am happy with how it is turning out so far--- must be OK as my daughter said that she thought it would look good on her lounge and she "would be happy to have them, thanks!" So it must be OK!! Sorry, I cannot show any photos until I get a solution to my problem.

A family friend, who goes under the pseudonym of "Mongo", is a great photographer. He has been helping me with creating a logo for the covers of my patterns,   and taking photos of the brooches, buttons, patchwork pieces etc. So the quality of the photos on the patterns will be much better than what I have produced before. He has photographed a few of my buttons and brooches and put them in a grid form for my "Buttons and Brooches" and "Patterns" pages. I had some time today and thought that I would get the pages all set up with his photos-- and lo and behold-- this problem has cropped up and I cannot download the photos to the blog. I do hope that someone will be able to advise me and that  I will be able to rectify the problem soon.

I look forward to advice and solutions.

I have to resort to using the html button and then adding my text under the photo's which appear as numbers and letters and then when you click on compose the photo's appear and you can then edit your post.I found if I didn't do it this way I couldn't add sentences between each photo after hitting compose they apeared in a block with no space between them.Hope this helps,email me if you need more help :) Barb.

Such sad news about your dog!
About your blogger problem:
Chooky wrote a post about it, you can make your photos smaller in Picasa and there would be more space (picasa doesn't count images smaller than 800x800 pxls)
