The header should be clicked on by anyone building a web site.
I sometimes dig out a picture and then write a post around it.
Since Thanksgiving (American) is just around the corner, I decided you should be impressed by this picture of two turkeys.
I love Thanksgiving. I love pigging out on turkey and stuffing and smashed potatoes and dressing and rolls and cranberry sauce and eggnog and pumpkin pie. (Wild thing has accused me of being able to eat real turkey at least twice a week. So?What's your point?)
I also watch football on that day. Real American style football. It's one of my myriad of vices and even Wild Thing has become knowledgeable about it (See, she must love me.)
Speaking of vices, I am an inveterate web surfer as you may have guessed. So there's a couple of sites I found that either tickled me or caught my attention.
At a news conference, a journalist said to the politician running for the presidency, "Your secretary said publiclythat you have a small penis. Would you please comment onthis?"
"The truth is," replied the politician, "That she has a big mouth."
I wonder who he was refering to?

A really cool Gmail trick If you use your Gmail address to sign up for websites, newsletters, etc. you can use a trick to see if they send you unwanted email or sell your address to others. Normally you would use your email address such as me@gmail.com but you can use a plus sign ( + ) to mark the address because the plus sign and everything between it and the @ sign will be ignored. As an example if you were to sign up for my newsletter and wanted to make sure I'm not lying when I say I won't use your address just sign up as me+coolsites@gmail.com. The newsletter will go to me@gmail.com but be marked as going to mailto:me+coolsites@gmail.com. Then you can use Gmails filters to send that unwanted email to the spam folder or even just delete it. Spam Control for Gmail Users. This is a cool trick to find out if the place you just gave your gmail address to is sending you unwanted email. http://www.lockergnome.com/nexus/theoracle/2007/08/09/spam-control-for-gmail-users

Here's a site you should visit and use. Very helpful:

Great header info, The sites are very interesting , especially the Google info site and the New Mexico site. Do you suppose Lin knows about this.
I could eat turkey twice a week also. Just love it.
Happy Thanksgiving

Catmoves said...

moose, lin visits me regularly. I'm sure she will find it. Unless, of course, she's putting on a new potty or fixing a bad pump or gallivanting with her dogs.
Have a turkey and celebrate our Thanksgiving. 'Cause turkey should be a staple in everyone's larder.

alphonsedamoose said...

thanks cat. Maybe I'll do that.

Lin said...

Have a great Thanksgiving, Cat!

With our crappy download times lately and their limits, I haven't been clicking on much of anything but you guys have just talked me into doing so for the NM site. Shush, touch wood ... no disasters recently!

Glad you and Towanda got together. Isn't it great to have another interactive NM blogger to visit? We are experiencing another accelerating fluctuation in the time continuum here so I haven't been around as often as I thought I have apparently. If it continues, you will be leaving comments before I make new posts. Sigh.

Sally found out about the 'Purr-suit' when they visited. My mother always loved that comment of Ghandi's so it brought back great memories with it. Thanks.

Catmoves said...

lin, we will have a great Thanksgiving. You and Mark should eat lots of goodies. What diet?
"With our crappy download times lately and their limits" what's with this? You using Comcast? Hehehe. I try to post only one or two pics per article (?) so pages will load faster.
Tell Sally we are impatiently awaiting the birth of her blog, please.
I like the Gandhi quote, too.

Catmoves said...

moose, thank you for the good wishes. You have my permission to overeat today, too. Hardeharhar.
