    I've had this for a while and haven't found anything like it using terms like expanded or pierced metal. I'm not coming up with a decent description so I need your help.


    Yes, I loaded it from my phone but I can't see any way to rotate it! It's not big, 11" to the top of the socket, 16" to the top of the shade. The backing inside the base is just a piece of paper curled to fit, probably yellowed from age. Any suggestions are appreciated, including instructions on how to rotate my pics!

    Thanks, Linda

    Thanks! That looks much better! If I have an orientation "button" I don't know where it would be. I know in my word processing programs I have one but not on this forum. Thanks for the key words, I'll go looking again.

    If you swipe up, from Home Screen, you might see it.

    Thanks @i need help. I had to swipe down on my phone, it's now on "auto rotate". I didn't have a clue that was there!

    Thanks, @sabre123 Those are really cool!
