Nap,
Nice. How far down does it go???

Content, no...but style of attachment, yes. I'm using the little 'insert image' icon at the top of the screen, but I fail every time.

to attach a pic click in the paperclip in the icon library above. That will open a window. Then click on "choose file"

then find the pict or whatever you want on your computer. Double click on it. Then click "upload" that is by the (choose file) from the previous window used. Then, go back to your post box and click on the paperclip again. Then click on the file you just set up to attach and viola, we have a chick with a dragon tatoo on her back.

I think you may have missed the OPs intention. Either that or I did.

I don't know. That is just a pic I found on the internet. My daughter keeps trying to get me to get a tat and I told her if I did, it would be full back and I saw that one and kind of liked it (without the tramp stamp though)

I want it to be simple to do with a battery, what type of switches? It doesn't have to be led lights it can be bulbs. I see the drawings if someone can assist with the types of battery, switch, wire type, andcif led or plain bulb in socket shoal be used.

Based on your questions, I would suggest you find someone in your area who could easily build this. Maybe there is a trade or vocational school in your area which has an electrical or electronics course currently in session. You could ask the instructor of the students (at the vocational school) if the students could build what you need if you purchased the materials. Or perhaps contact an amateur radio club in your area. Those guys/gals could easily build what you need, especially if they work on their own radios.

Radio Shack used to have small breadboards with spring loaded connectors. If you make it like my drawing you would need two DPST switches, some wire, the kit above, a battery, and three lights. You could use a 6V lantern battery and 6 volt bulbs. I don't know what Radio Shack has left in the Hobby corner but I know it isn't what it used to be.

You mean single pole double throw, aka three way, switches?

These do exist in push button style although harder to find.
