   Hi Jim,


        I've started a "blog" at Facebook (well, it's not really a blog), and was wondering if I could use this picture of me in my profile there. Would that be okay?  I'm not sure how to do that, but if you or Bill could give me some instruction, it would  help!

Hi Mary,

It is most certainly okay for you to use this photo. Now, as to how to use it in Facebook I'm not totally sure ... although I imagine they'll allow you to either 1) upload the photo to their site, or 2) include the URL (Universal Resource Locator) address in a text box where your photo file exists.

1) To upload this photo file to Facebook you'll first need to download it to your computer. Here how easy it is. Right-click on the photo and then choose the "save as..." option in box that pops up. If you're not sure where to save it to then you might want to choose "Desktop" (you can't lose it there). Then in Facebook, when you're adding this photo file to your profile you can just browse for it on the Desktop.
2) To just set your profile to find this photo file where it sits on the Shack you can include this address in your Facebook profile:

    Jim,

      Thanks most excellent brother!   I'm using Facebook as a social network to connect on a closer basis for friends and family, to Caleb's band, etc. It will never replace the Shack for me with regards to the LIFE here! 

       Friends - my family here can view my profile there if they would like too.
