Wikipedia, Keith Moon, and Roy.

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Never been to Wikipedia before today. Found it surprisingly easy. Didn't even need to register.

    I added to Keith Moon's work outside The Who re: the Valentine's gig. Another mention of ROY and friends. Probably should've checked for similar entries of all the other musicians Roy's played with throughout his career. (Maybe I will, but not tonight.) I started by looking for info on Rock Island in Door County, Wisconsin, but "Rock" wasn't the common link in my brain.

    Now it's your turn!

    Just began a blog on this site. It contains my email to a Chicago radio station I just submitted. Darn, why don't blogs keep the paragraphs separate?

    Wikipedia, the mdern day Oracle? :biggrin:

    If you are having trouble with the spacing in your blog, try entering the html code <br> where needed. This should force a break between lines, assuming html is allowed, that is.

    Wiccan Work It Out

    If it's good enough for Stephen Colbert (Comedy Channel)! He uses it to reinforce his "truthiness."

    I guess you're encouraging me to keep my blog going. Thanks, I think.

    "I'm so sick-a Wicca(ns) ending incantations with prepositions..."

    My email notifying me of Bob Jacobs comment has several "<p>" for paragraph breaks, so that must work.

    The editor that you get for blogs is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type and that definitely does preserve formatting. It may be that you are using a crappy web browser, or that you have javascript turned off, in which case it probably reverts to a more simple editor.

    I just tested it to be sure and it does work fine in IE (the crappiest of all web browsers) so either check your javascript settings or better still grab a copy of firefox (www.mozilla.com/firefox).

    I use Safari. The part I sent to "XRT" was written with Nisus Writer Express and pasted in. I looked quickly at the firefox web page with your link, I saw them suggested recently elsewhere. I'll think about it for a while first. I prefer keeping things simple; ie. not a lot of redundant/similar programs.

    Thanks.

    Just edited the blog inserting paragraph breaks, and it looks fine. Maybe I need to update Safari on my MacBookPro (which I use for most surfing). I do so much WP a couple extra characters is no real bother to me at this point.

    And I'd better avoid putting too much on my blog until/if I'm going to send you an AAC/MP3.

    Thanks for all you do, Paul!
