Fab origami, Kate, GCSE A grade, I do believe.

Geoff, I see you are displaying 'advanced linking skills' with your YouTube. clip. Have an A* for your GCSE  ;- )

To paste a link to a website, I find it in the search engine and, after checking it's what I want, I go back to the search engine page, right click on the hyperlink (underlined) that I used, choose 'Copy shortcut' and proceed as before. I expect there are at least three other ways to do all of this, some may be easier!!! The link below is coming out as a very long thing, unlike what I copied, but it should work.

Linking to a forum thread, I go and find it but don't open it to read the posts. I right-click on the thread title and, in the menu that opens, left click 'Copy shortcut' . Then when I type my post I paste the link into the box.

I'm using Internet Explorer but it must be similar in other browsers.

See how you go with that, gardenfantic.

The autumnal chill had passed by the time I got up - either that or sunny East Dorset has a summery micro-climate. The start of autumn has its own smell in the air - normally I don't detect it until September but who knows!

Heard this morning that beekeepers are depressed at the very poor honey yields. My sister-in-Wales has a bumper crop, four times more than she extracted last year, so something turned out right. I have one red tomato and a few green ones.

I hope it's a Custarde doughnut - my namesake after all. I had a gaga moment earlier when I said my favourite was Apple.

A link? I do believe I can ;- )


oooh, looks a bit long. Hope it works. Also wiki, beeb & several other places explain about the origin of the hoax.

Just googled Porth emmet. Quite entertaining :- )

I knew emmet was an old word for ant but I hadn't heard it used for grockles before.

what do I do with black box

If you don't want to do either, just slide off it and it will go away. I find it annoying that it pops up so readily, I think it would be much better if you had to hover for a second or two to make it appear.
