    Mine are in my signature too.

    Well, I just checked, and for some strange reason the "x-ray pics" link is taking me to my elementary kids spiking my hair. I don't know what's up with that. You can get to the others by just clicking on one of the other two choices and then down toward the bottom of the pictures it shows links to the other albums. Sorry. I don't remember how to link them at the moment. I'll work on it.

    Well, I have now worked on it enough to really botch it up royally. Oh well...
