On strike...

Today I am going on strike. I don't really mean it!

Last night, between slurps Wendy taught me how to strikethrough words!
I had always wondered, looked for special buttons on the toolbar, my keyboard, under the desk... (I love it!)
Je suis sûr that Wendy won't be upset if I let the cat out and explain how it is done to those who haven't yet disco discovered the joys of strikethrough!

When you're doing the post, go to the 'html' view...find the word you want to strikethrough...example....cream... and you put...< strike > cream< /strike > and hey, presto! I am struck! cream

They say little things please little minds, but for me, as I explained a few posts back, this is one of those tiny victories that make my life amazingly boring interesting!

So there! If any of yous out there happen to have equally fantastically stuff please feel free to pass it on!
It will help while away the hours between Sundays.

In my quest to translate the word Liver into Spanish I discovered a great language site http://www.wordreference.com/ Hìgado, by the way!

Oh I am howling with laughter...the way you phrased that..'between slurps'...sounds hysterical...

and of course I don't mind sharing tips - actually there's a great bloggers forum where you can get help and find threads relating to most any blog question...http://www.bloggerforum.com/

now if anyone knows how to put a link into a comment - I'd love to know...

"Smile on face!"
Links in comments. Type:
< a
href= " ADDRESS " > NAME < /a >
No spaces. Voila!

How did the Monkfish turn out?

Supposed to work in the kitchen tonight but glad I was freed to blog at the last minute!
Must do the rounds though! And maybe a Chinese meal later.

Haha.. I've been wondering how to add links in comments for over a year.


I'll use the strike feature when I say things I shouldn't.

TY :)

Today, I shall be mostly doing nothing interesting!
Or maybe just eating Easter Eggs.

The Strikethrough doesn't work in the comments boxes only in posts.

Happy Easter to you too, Cherry!

I keep having to come back to this post to remember how to do strikethroughs. Would you mind putting it amongst your favourite posts so I can find it easier next time
