misdaroc,

OK. Drive Responsibly.
Not into Facebook, Myspace or any social networking.
Remember, I've got my own websites which I can have hosted and code myself.
Always advise ALL to purchase their own Top Level Domains (instead) of using the social networks.
One has "The Controls" that way. (lol) (lol)
Kindest Regards,
Rick P.♦:)

@SarahJames,

Was coding the pictures in from off of one of my (real name) websites secure store folders.
The Google Crawler was picking up the pictures and associating the name (raphoenix) search results with the pictures I posted on HTG.
----------------
Not really sure why this was happening or how to stop the (cross) website associations so just pulled down all the pictures off that particular website store because postings on HTG cannot be edited or deleted after an hour now.
----------------
Since I own so many Top Level Domains Name Sites, have had problems in the past with illegal non US off-shore sites being associated on Google search results with my legal websites so thought it was best just to not use my websites for posting pictures to other websites.
----------------
Tis a strange situation as Google takes no responsibltity for its Crawler and neither does Icann enforce Internet rules any longer.
Sorry; no more pretty pictures any more from me :( :(
Hope your small puppies are doing OK.
Kindest Regards,
Rick P.

@ Raphoenix - sorry to hear (oh well, read) that. I use PhotoBucket myself and try and keep myself as anonymus on the internet as possible (more difficult than it seems, because there are quite a few nice people out there that you do tell about yourself LOL).
Puppies are still hanging in there, eventhough they are smaller than any I've seen so far. It's a matter of luck if they will survive.

Bye,
Sarah.
