This is a bizarre tip but it turns out Tumblr (of all websites) will resize an image you upload to the perfect size for the forum. It's literally the only reason I have a Tumblr account anymore. I just upload a photo as a queued post, right click and save the photo, delete the queued post and done. It's an absolutely stupid workaround but it works so well I can't be bothered to try anything else Cheesy

Every Windows computer comes with Paint, which is super simple to use to resize pics.

Sorry, but it's a pet peeve of mine:  'Yea' isn't the word you want.  It's 'yeah'.  'Yea' is an anachronistic word you see in the King James bible. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Spellcheck, I shall fear no misspellings for thou art with me.  Thy dictionary and thy thesaurus, they comfort me.

Yeah but that requires knowing and remembering what size is best. Tumblr is perfect when you're incredibly lazy like myself.

Just to get people excited and no unfortunately I have not found these myself.

These are from the genus Mycena.

I was a bit disappointed not to get any comment on the most boring fungus ever.

They are Daldinia Concentrica, common names King Arthur's Cakes, cramp balls or tinder fungus.

You can see the slugs chowing down on them.

The picture was taken in the hospital grounds at 3.15pm on 31st July 2019

Well, I can be baf if you wish (boring as feck).
They are called concentrica because when you break them open they have concentric rings, just like a trees growth rings.
They are called King Alfred's cakes because he dozed off, burnt the cakes and they look like supposedly burnt ( medieval) cakes.
They are called cramp balls because carrying one supposedly stops you getting cramp but of course, sewn into pockets on the back of your night shift stops you sleeping on your back and either s print or getting cramp !!!!
And, lastly, dried out, shredded is a convenient tinder or burnt whole, they are much like charcoal.
Deep joy,
Cheers
