Default Help - Does this yeast look strange to you ?

I have a 2.5 day old yeast bubbling through an airlock once every 2 seconds. It is a Wyeast Irish Ale yeast recipied for a nut brown ale. 2.5 pounds 2-row plus 4 lbs muntons extra dry unhopped malt. I have an image which I would love for people to view because it looks weird to me. I am wondering what other people think. If you are interested in helping me perhaps you could leave me your email address. I have the free account which does not support memory space for uploaded photos. But I could send you an image of the carboy on email.

No major alarms there, it looks like doing their work and just collecting a little on the ridges or C02 hanging out. Check and make sure the temp isn't too low and causing them to drop down a bit.

Pitched the yeast at 72-74 and then dropped temp to 70 the next day. Been pegged at 70 ever since.

It looks fine, you should try to get your temp down some though.
