    LOL if you can get a dog to listen you can get a kid to listen - positive reinforcement training works no matter who its applied to :)

    That's very interesting. So, in the context avatar is being used in this thread, instead of being the manifestation of God on Earth, it is the manifestation of humans on the internet!

    I'm going to take that to mean we are all Gods on the internet!

    As for the polar bear, that's a picture I took at the zoo. The memories makes it extra special. And it's adorable!

    I blame EarthPix on Twitter for my new avatar. How could I not switch to it. It's a baby sloth holding its stuffed giraffe. The cute it burns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have two reasons for this avatar:

    1) My daughter LOVES everything flowers and sunflowers are her favorite. We found this patch of them together so when I see it, it makes me think of her :)

    2) I ended up using some sunflower photos we took together on the cover of my latest work and so I use it right now to help promo that on my blog and FB and now I just use it for consistency LOL

    My avatar is a still photo of the fictional Randy Watson, lead singer for the band "Sexual Chocolate" from my favorite funny movie, Coming To America.
    The band's name, the jeri curl, the suit, the ridiculous singing, all combined to become one of my favorite scenes in the history of movies.

    My user name is RainbowGurl so I got a picture of a rainbow. I've had this avatar since I joined the site.

    Anyway there is nothing funnier than a drippy jeri curl. (in my opinion)

    Lol ooh yeah, I used to get down like that every Saturday in winter months. I'm old school. lol Even now I still pull out those same moves (minus the wheels) , get down and boogie to some Grand Funk Railroad, Stevie Wonder, Rick James, Ohio Players, etc etc. I dj often and love all tuneage, but them old school jams can't be beat when you want to get your groove on. muahahaha

    Insightful thread! I would always secretly wonder about people's avatar pics. They reveal a little something about us & people are so interesting.
    My little buddy- a green cheek parakeet- tends to be my avatar. He's cute and fuzzy, I'm not so cute and fuzzy! o_O

    Mine is a still life with James Joyce lurking in the background.

    I'm doing a Ph.D on Joyce. :)
