R.I.P. Steve Irwin


I was shocked and saddened to learn of Steve 'The Crocodile Hunter' Irwin's death today. He was making a new documentary on Queensland's Great Barrier Reef when a stingray punctured his chest with its tail barb - the stinger apparently went straight into his heart and he died almost instantly. (Being struck by a stingray's barb can be likened to getting stabbed with a bayonet.)
The world has certainly lost one of its great characters.

Donna and I share your grief about the death of the Crocodile man. We really enjoyed watching his antics. His is a spot which cannot be filled by anyone else.

Is it me or does uploading pics doesn't work properly anymore (unless you use Picasa2)?

CA: You're right about that. They broke the mold after they made him, that's for sure.
d3hum8n1z3r: I haven't posted in a week, but last time I managed to upload a picture no problem. I'll make sure to let you know if I have trouble with it. Good luck!
