There are lots of places you can find pictures, but I will just give directions for finding one on Google. From www.google.com, click on the word "images" Saturday, October 31, 2009 1

Sometimes the items show in a list rather than the pictures themselves.You can change this by clicking on View Thumbnails. Then the actual pictures show up making it easy to find the one you are looking for. When you see the one you want to insert, click on it Once just to highlight it and choose "Select" Saturday, October 31, 2009 9

You can also choose the size of the picture. Then select "insert into post". Once your picture appears in the post be sure to "Update Post" to save your changes.
