    He could use the cash… to buy another apple (and keep the change).

    Do Tell.
    His son was the apple of his eye.

    Disconcerting indeed, to see your father being receptive to a pink lady’s overtures!

    @ Al S. (From Yesterday)

    Thanks for the “Swedish Chef,” link. I always liked him. Statler and Waldorf were always good for a laugh, too.

    @ Heidi Tentee (From yesterday.)

    I’m guessing you like Gallagher, too.

    Link 9 Minutes 18 Seconds

    If you want to post a “live” link instead of a cut and paste “you-are-ell” (just my sense of humour having fun with “texting”) do this:

    Copy this…

    ₡br>₡br> ₡a href=" "> ₡/a> ₡br>₡br>

    into “Wordpad” (not “Word”)

    Replace all the       ₡      with       <      You will then have the proper coding for making live links using copied URLs.

    Copy the URL from the address box and paste it between the;       ” “       make sure there are no spaces between either quotation mark and the URL address.

    Put the description you want for the link in between       > <       I just used the word “Link” above, but I could have used “Gallagher” instead.

    I forgot to say that the ₡br>₡br> are line breaks and when “live” will

    put spaces between lines. I use them to


    links from the rest of my comment. But they are optional.

    To cut to the core of displaying code, use HTML ASCII character codes instead of inserting replacement characters. So the line break code will look like <br>, if you just use the code (&lt;) for the first “<”.

    @Al S.

    To show that the code will work as displayed, I copied the last sentence of my previous post and am pasting it back here (with bolding). Notice the line break and the “<” substitute for the codes:

    So the line break code will look like
    , if you just use the code (<) for the first “<”.

    Therefore, the whole link code can be summarized this way:

    <a href="URL">Link text</a>

    You can copy and paste this code as is, with URL and link text substitutions (of course), to use it — even thought it originally was created by ASCII code. Or, you can just take the middle line and insert it into text, as I did in my previous post.

    BTW, I also had to do a similar substitution with quotes for proper display, when I inserted the coloring code — for similar reason.

    I also use that link text to reply to more than one commenter or if the “Submit” button doesn’t work. Those links use the members’ bio page URL.

    Now it will never be written……..he’s let the apple make William Tell an overature!

    I think that’s William No-Tell.
