Cheesehead ... Thanks for the welcome. See date change again - do your dates still work? We can never go anywhere fun, especially in winter, without running into a great group of people from WI. Where in WI are you? Wisconsinites know how to party - well .... with the exception of Texas. I don't think I could hold a candle to that crew!

DavidB - Standards Schmandards! Concise is relative ... take a look at Stogey! Concise does not equal relevant.
Thanks for the welcome!

Hey, thanks all for the warm welcome ... you're a good bunch. Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I'll go do my homework now and figure out how to cut and paste.
Looking forward to what comes ... I'm off to the other threads and see what havoc I might be able to wreak there. Another drink and who knows what might happen.

I think after seeing the last 8 or 9 posts of yours, my brain actually kicked in and I figured out your screen name.

Clever!!

B'loo - how many gimmies to I get? Carte Blanche? Or do I have to behave sooner or later?

(I'm very happy for you and what you have found with SQR - and for what she has found with you. It's a wonderful story - for us to peek into)

Nerak ... it's what hubby (1 year anniversary on 3-10-07) calls me. Don't tell Stewart - I'm just playing stupid about pasting - increasing my post count! (honestly - not! I'll figure it out - just not tonight.)
We booked Grand Coco Bay only after you returned. It looks so nice and relaxed. Small and comfortable. Dale likes the AI for predetermined $$$. I just coddle - we'll be non-AI come the end of 2007. You're really someone special.

To do the multiple quote thaaaaang, ya gotta be in the advanced screen (not the quick reply box - click the "advanced" underneath it). Then scroll down to where you'll see the previous posts in gray boxes. Then it's a matter of copying and pasting what you want and then typing in the [QUOTE="name of person"] and then the [/quote] at the end of the quoted section. Simple but time-consuming. ( You need to type "QUOTE" in all caps - I just had to edit that since it was reading in the post as a "real" quote.)

Or you can simply address each person within your one post, such as:

Babaloo: Is it okay to call you "Babs" like Nerak does?

Nerak: Do I have to flash my right boobie in the pool bar at the Grand Coco Bay too??

David B: What are you taking a picture of in your avatar??

All I did in the above was bold the forum member's name to make it stand out. This method works fine if there's no real reason to quote what they said in their previous post.

Oh, gawwwwd.... I'm rambling now, aren't I.....

P.S. Thanks for saying I'm "special". That's what the men in the nice white coats tell me every time they come by to give me those pretty purple pills and give me my basket-weaving supplies.

No, I can't ask about the weather... but as long as I have Carte Blanche - I'd like to inquire about pesos - okay with you? Bring 'em, ATM, TC's, what time do the banks open? Are they open on Sunday?

You're ready to punch me in the head aren't you?

Thanks, Karen ... as you will undoubtedly see ... I was not successful in my attempts. Dinner was just delivered ... long week - no cooking on Fridays. (I had another browser opened to go to the Friday thread and Dale just vetoed that effort). Gotta go - thanks again, I'll revisit this and take the instruction seriously.)
