Instructions to post Pictures, Slideshows and Videos on your Profile.

Photobucket Placing pictures or even a slideshow of your pictures is something that you can do on your Profile.

For pictures, you will want to make a photo album and use the services of or the other providers of these types of services. I believe that photobucket is what Karen uses and if you have any problems, she could direct you in using this service.

For Slides, you need to go through or for the making of a slideshow. They are download sites that will make the slideshow for you. You download the pictures, order them the way you want them to be shown and you can even select background music.

Once this is done, they provide the HTML coding to be placed on the profile. I would open a text editor like Notepad to save the HTML coding there first as you do not want to loose this. It is the access to those pictures. Then post the code to the Profile in the Slideshow section provided.

I use Windows Movie Maker and download what I made to where they make the video and store it for you. They, also, give you the HTML code that you insert into your profile page.

If you are planning on taking on this type of project and feel uneasy in doing such, select the green Assistance button in the blue box above and drop me a line.

Today's Featured Biography


Jerry O'Brian

I would have been a member of the Ashland High School Class of '58. I lived in Ashland on two different occasions. The first time I attended Lincoln Elementary School and I finished up my 5th grade year ( 1951 - Mr. Peters )and was there my entire 6th grade year ( 1951-1952 - Mrs. Owens ).

I was gone for almost a year and returned to finish up my 7th grade year ( 1953 - Don't remember any of the teachers names ) and was there most of my 8th grade year ( 1953 - 1954 - Ms Foster ).

A good memory from the 8th grade was running for vice president of the Student Council. It was NOT my idea! Lee Seitz and the rest of Ms Foster's class talked me into it. Lee was my campaign manager. That gave me my very first public speaking opportunity, my speech to the student body on why they should vote for me. I lost to one of the Simpson brothers.

I left in February 1954 to go to Baumholder, Germany. My Dad was in the Army so we moved quite a bit when I was growning up.

The first picture above was taken in the fall of 1953, my 8th grade year there in Ashland.

I finished my 8th grade in Baumholder, Germany and was there my freshman and sophomore years. My Dad was then sent to Fort Riley, Kansas where I attended Milford Rural High School my junior and senior year.

After high school my best friend and I joined the Navy - 8 January 1959. I was a Radarman in the Navy and served all over; the west coast, the midwest and the east coast. I stayed in the Navy for 20 1/2 years, retiring the end of March 1980.

I married my wife Sharon in March 1967 and we have one child, Alison.

After I retired from the Navy I went to work for Sperry Univac (later to become Unisys Corporation). I worked in software development as a tester, analyst, technical writer and configuratiion manager. I retired from Unisys Corporation in July 2000.

In 2002 I attended a tax preparation class and started working during the tax season preparing tax returns. I currently volunteer time each tax season working for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

In May 2005 my wife and I moved from Chesapeake, Virginia to Crawfordsville, Indiana.

I have stayed in touch with Maxine (Crowson) Kinkade all these years. Pat (Brewer) South and I re-connected in August 2001 when I was in Ashland for a couple of days. The large picture above is the three of us taken during that couple of days.

Would sure love to hear from those classmates that remember me! If any of them do...... That was a long time ago. Perhaps someone will remember that kid pictured above. Or some of the other pictures I have added. My e-mail address is:
