I have read a couple of blogs that have the following embedded in their "lists":
I can't help but thinking either IE can't read the page right (no shock there) or they did some sort of "code" that got messed up somewhere (again, no shock there). My money is on the former, but I could be fooled.
Expiration Dates on Water
I have always seen expiration dates on water, and I ask myself, "if there is only water in the bottle, how does it 'go bad'"? I am looking at my mountain spring water, and it only contains water. It has no calories, no fat, no saturated fat, no cholesterol, no sodium, no carbohydrates (from either dairy fiber or sugars) and no protein. What is in my water that makes it go bad?
Also, does water cost more in California? I want to know, because if I were in California, I could get a cash refund. Not sure how much cash is involved, but it has always intrigued me.
Forwarding a Warning
Before you forward me a piece of email about the latest crisis, please look it up on Snopes. If you don't, I will, and if I find it there, I will reply to all, so that you, your Aunt Gladys and your three co-workers will understand what an idiot you are.
I was looking at my traffic the other day, and I was surprised that the traffic has actually increased after the blogging competition. Turns out, people are googling me more often than not. Not return customers, but googling customers. Interesting.
A week or two ago, I made some changes to my blog, and I felt like no one noticed. Then Prata said something about it in his blog, and I was a little surprised that he noticed my tagline change. Okay, I am not surprised that he noticed, as he tends to notice small changes. I think of Prata as some super spy type that notices small changes in curtain movement and then riddles the curtains with gunfire to snuff out some counter-spy. I guess I was more surprised that no one else has said anything about it. I got reviewed a few weeks ago, and one thing she said was that the tagline was too darned long, and I completely disagreed that day. The following day, with a more critical eye, I had to 'fess up and agree with her assessment. So I changed it. I made some other small changes as well.
When I was tweaking my blogger, I found several articles about changing header graphics, and a whole site dedicated to helping out new bloggers. I think I may have used their suggestion for adding a picture to the banner. There was a little HTML involved, but like Prata spraying bullets across a room, I just had to be my bad-ass and do it.
