Nice. I say I can't see the pix, and two seconds later there they are!

Weird, but I won't complain.

It doesn't always work, but about half the time, if I right-click on the 'tiny generic thumbnail', then left-click on 'open image in a new tab', I can see the hidden pictures.

Hi! Welcome to the forum.

You are right - both novels and non-fiction books help to get an idea of the way others live.
