Well, I checked around and the only possibility I found was this - go to "Settings", scroll down to "Global Settings" and make sure that "show compose mode for all your blogs" is set to yes. If it's already set to yes, then I have no freakin' clue. Let me know if it works. And how do you copy and paste if you have no right-click?
Peace, love and harmony, man.
Like, let's groove on some bitchin' tunes while chillin' out with Mary
Jane. Just quit bogartin' the doobie and we'll all be cool man. Cool?
[The song, and driving around in a '69 LTD all day has warped the mind]
- First type the words you are going to link to.
- Highlight the words and click on the link button (circled in red in the first picture).
- A dialog box will pop up, do not change anything other than the box that is circles in the second picture.
- Type in the complete address for the page you are linking to, or copy it from your browser and paste it in there (I don't know if the copy-paste will work with your Mac).
- Click "OK" and you're done.
If you have any questions - just ask.

Dear Carolyn: For 15 years now, my wife and I have carried my daughter and son-in-law financially. We have carried the loans for every house and car they have owned, given them over $80,000, and they are repaying $20,000 more in loans. My daughter recently got a tatoo, and when I inquired about it, she said it was her body, etc. I am not a big fan of tattoos on men, let alone women, let alone my daughter. I initially asked if she would remove it and she said no. I then very politely reminded her of the past 15 years of money and favors, and how we had asked for very little in return. I then asked her to please, please do me a favor and have it removed. She went off on me like a nuclear bomb about everything she didn't like about me (intrusive, controlling, etc.) and basically told me to go to hell. Hurt is severely inadequate to describe my reaction. What do you think of her reaction? [signed] - Spoiled Daughter?
I'm not going to post her response, or mine, yet. Just want to see what you all think before I do.

There is a theory that every urban legend has core of truth, that something happened that started the urban legend. For example the legend of the lady who sold her soon-to-be-exhusband's brand new BMW for $50. Chances are someone, somewhere sold her husband's car dirt cheap just to spite him. Maybe it was $1,000, maybe it was a 3 year old Chevy. Probably not a brand new BMW. As the story gets around people embellish it and, as in the story above, the woman ends up in jail for a couple of hours. The cop probably just had her pull out all her information to confirm she owned the car. But that doesn't make as good a story.

So, we got the car home. All 700+ miles and it didn't break down until we hit the 6200 So. exit of I 215. But it's up and running again, tucked away all warm and cozy in the garage. I got a great car. New paint, rebuilt engine, solid body, no body rot at all and a history. Yeah, the lady who sold it to me had a bunch of old cars she rented out to movie makers. Here's the list she gave me of the movies it's been in :
- Zodiac Killer
- Psycho w- Anne Hesche
- Bringing up Brady
- Apt Pupil
- Split Decision
- Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas (it was the taxi Johnny Depp rode in)
- The Wedding Planner
- The Kid
- Metal God (Rockstar)
- Frailty w- Bill Paxton
- Pentagon Wars
- Unsolved Mysteries
- Come get Happy
- Almost Famous
- My Sisters Keeper
Anyhow, I'm exausted. Have to tell the story of the trip, with pictures, later.
It's good to be home.

Now, you may ask "who cares?". In which case you either are new to my blog or you are not very observant. Ever since, when I was less than 3, I yelled "Daddy's car" over and over every time we passed the Rambler dealership, I've cared.
And I was going to buy a brand new Impreza as soon as I graduated from my Masters program. Not anymore.

Science class at an undisclosed high school. Girl in the back has her hand up.
"Uh, Ms. Goebel, can I use the hall pass?"
"Jane, it's 'may I use the hall pass'"
"Uh, ok. Ms. Goebel, may I use the hall pass? My water just broke."

I'm standin' here outside the door,
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry,
So kiss me and smile for me,
Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.....
I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again...
