OOPS..................NOW I KNOW THE PROBLEM!
After messing around with pictures and the brightness and not being to really see some of your posted pictures, I got the answer.
The last picture post I did were probably MORE than a little light as some of you suggested.
My son stopped by and while here sat down at my computer. I had asked him to check out why DVD's I play on the tv are so dark that you can't see them here.
My 7 year old monitor is Dieing.
My apologies to anyone that I possibly made a comment about their pix being too dark.
