I've solved my issue, for now, with simple web hosting, for images only, using rsync to synchronize with my local site.

Yup, responding to myself here... just to keep thoughts in order.

And thanks to all who pointed out the many facets of cdn services here, and suggestions.

After the discussion here, decided to do the following.
1. got hosting account with
2. set up rsync system to sync up all images and some other files.
3. setup dns to cover up to 5 "hosts" all pointing to same IP at host site.
4. rewrote some URLS on site to distribute some loading of images, css. js.
5. after first tests, went back and tweaked local website some .
test page results shown here.
The initial latencies are due to my own office machine web server, sitting on DSL (only 0.64Mbps UPload speed). ONE DAY, I'll move to vps hosting perhaps. Up until now, ALL hosting for my site was from my office iMac, busy with many other chores.... still is in fact (just images offloaded).

in my case, this shows almost as good results as I would have gotten using any CDN for now. IN fact, given better RTT on first hits for my large site... actually much better overall for most of my visitors.

Thanks everyone, it's been enlightening for me.
