What's the code for what, huh?

I'm making a pot of coffee. I'm seeing to it that the minors in the household are properly fed. I'm learning html code. What, huh?

Alpha Dogma is teaching me some new tricks. Kudos and thanks to you, Alpha Dogma! See how I did that? I just made this little code and then it makes the name of the person (or their pen name) a link to their blog. Ooooo, I feel so smug. My husband, who is equally smug, also just walked by and showed me a little link button I can push at the top of this page that does the same thing (a globe with a chain link). I'm still proud that I figured out how a code makes things work (well this one thing). I must admit it boggles my mind - more than a wee bit.

This morning there is a nice layer of snow all around the town. Forecasts of rain and not-freezing temps this week will leave things much less winter wonderlandish, I'm sure. But this morning, it's quite lovely.
See my little Brenna, helping her daddy shovel snow with the dust pan from our garage.

I hope everyone enjoys their day as much as I intend to. Coffee's on, I must go.


* Thoughts and prayers to my friend, Jacque, who is back in the hospital this weekend - hopefully receiving the treatment she needs to return her breathing to "normal" and get her back home
quickly. *

There's a button that does that?!
Who knew?
I have this amazing tendency to make things more complicated then necessary. This is true of cooking (I'll just make my own chicken stock from scratch, instead of the prepackaged stuff), child birth (i don't really need an epidural. I'll be fine with a nice hard candy to suck on during contractions) and now, I guess, blogging.
So I taught you something, and now you've taught me something - so now we are even steven!

Thanks for the kind words. The procedure is done and man can I breathe well! I love your pictures of Brenna. I may have to steal her one of these days. She is such a cutie.

AD is amazing me with her blogging talents, we started at the same time and I am not nearly as advanced.

Your question helped me too, so thanks.

Nice coding!

For what it's worth, it took me a while to find the 'link' button, too. I was just typing away like you and AD ...

I take it back: I don't have that button. I have it on another site (a bulletin board I frequent) so it sounded (err...um...'seemed' maybe is the better term) familiar, but I can't see it on blogspot. Where is it? On the main composition window?

PS - it is nice to finally find a place where my obsessive personality is appreciated.
