"You've been bringing this up more and more---which is OK , I want you to talk to me about it--but it is clear from your tone that you've assumed we've settled the question of if and moved on to when. I'm still stuck at if".

  2. Great teaser. I love the picture of the bird/you? with a haircut by a 5-year old. Fun blog.

    BTW: I don't know how to put a link in a comment either. If you find out, let me know

  4. Cool Teaser - isn't that always the way it is?

    To put a link into a comment or anywhere else you need to use those little alligator mouth symbols (aka less than or greater than) that reside above the comma and period keys as brackets. I can't type out the script for you since blogger will convert it into a link and you won't be able to see it - but what you do is really very simple - although it looks more complicated all spelled out like this:
    -type the "less than" symbol (hit Shift, Comma)
    -then type the letter a (small caps) directly beside it
    -then put a space in there after the letter a
    -then type href=
    -right next to the = sign type in the website address you want to link to in quotation marks, for example, "http://kayespenguinposts.blogspot.com/"
    -right next to the end quote " type in the greater than symbol (Shift, Period)
    -right next to that bracket type in the word you want to appear in the text that will be highlighted with the link, for example Penguin
    -right next to that word typ in another less than bracket (Shift, Comma) then a back slash, then the letter a, then another greater than bracket (Shift, Period).

    I keep a sample of this script on my desktop with my blog address as the default website and the words INSERT WORD HERE to denote where I should go in and overwrite with the Penguin word or whatever. Then I just copy and paste it whenever I need it and change the INSERT WORD HERE portion to say Penguin or whatever.

    Then it will look like THIS!

    Those greater than and less than brackets are what you put around things to get the text to do what you want. If you put them around the letter b and type a word and the put them around /b at the end of the word it will put the word in bold - using an i will make the words in italics.

  6. Thank you so much for your help in me to put links in my comments. I just tried it and I can't believe it works. (I'm a low tech person so I get pretty excited when I learn something new like this.) I'm heading over to The Bumbles to thank Molly also. Thanks for sharing.
