Nite, Nite, Sleep Tight!

This post is an experiment in trying to use the new Blogger editor. I thought I was going to be able to have the text flow around the photo, but no no. So, kinda ignore the playing around I am going to be doing trying out the bells and whistles of this editor. It is supposed to work much better with Safari than the old editor.

Ok, first thing I did with the photo was to drag it from the top and place it under the text. After I post I'll check and see if it still has it's link to Picasa and will enlarge when I click on the photo.

I double clicked on the photo in the editor and the Box showed up again so I could choose what size and where I want to place the photo. Just for kicks I clicked on e-large. I do like being able to drag the edge of the editor and make the editor screen size. Ok, now I'll try out the number and bullet lists.

Edit: I went back and changed the size of the photo to large. X-large was too big! And yes, the photo enlarged after I messed around with it dragging it around.

  1. Well, first, I can't make the number or bullet lists center.
  2. I would like to figure out how to wrap text around photos.
  3. I suppose if I had a recipe blog I would use lists.

I took this photo tonight when I checked for eggs and locked up the coop.

Poor Hen-Roo! I don't think she is interested in being a hen anymore since she acts like a rooster, looks like a rooster and even sounds like a sick rooster. But she is so cute!

There is an insert jump break, but I'm not going to try that out mainly because I don't want a jump break.

I think I will save trying to figure out how to wrap text around the photo for another day. I'll do some more searching and reading here. I know I don't want to mess around with html.

[1 egg today]
At least the girls are making my breakfast.

You are so brave to try new software tricks. I haven't gotten myself todo it yet. But maybe soon.

I really have my silkies because I think they are nice looking chickens. My white hen hatched some eggs, but the chicks all died. There were other chicks in the brooder box, too that died. I think there was some sort of contamination in the box. I built some new ones to use next time.
