random image script question

Good Morning, J=F6rg

I removed the second (glossRef), added my image names, and then pasted the=
 script into my homepage template.

{if (random(1, 6) =3D=3D 1)
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Idaho")}
else {if (random(2, 6) =3D=3D 2)
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Nova Scotia")}
else {if (random(3, 6)  =3D=3D 3)
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Beaverton")}
else {if (random(4, 6) =3D=3D 4)
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Safford")}
else {if (random(5, 6) =3D=3D 5)
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Douglas")}
{pictureRef("Ellsworth in Military")}

Instead of displaying a single, random image, all of the images were=
 displayed at the same time. Before and after each image was a line of=
 script, like this:

{if (random(1, 6) =3D=3D1)
the first image was displayed here

else {if (random(2, 6) =3D=3D
the second image was displayed here.

What am I doing wrong?
