Improving my Skills

Blogging, like everything else, requires skills. You start out with the basics, and then you learn little tricks. For instance, links. Up until now I have been too lazy and dorky to figure out how to do something I've noticed all other bloggers seem to know how to do: Post a link without showing the URL of the link.

Since today is Saturday and I had some time to kill, I finally went to the trouble to figure it out by going to Blogger Help.

So, thanks to this new skill, I can tell you about a new blog I discovered, called A New Mexican in Maui

Hopefully this will show the name of the blog but not the URL. The reason I like this blog is it's about a woman from New Mexico who has moved to Maui (duh) and she writes about what it's like to live on the Valley Isle. She is in synch with my liberal political views and sounds like a fun person. And I love reading about her descriptions of her days on Maui since I often know exactly where she's talking about. She lives in Kihei, which is the town in Maui where we've stayed the most.

I'm going to post this now and see if my link worked!

Thanks for visiting today.About your question on nurses caps, no capping ceremony; and nurses no longer can wear their caps at work!!! This was a very bad thing to do, we worked so hard to get them and were proud to wear our schools cap.It is hard to tell a nurse from a housekeeper , now
days. Gone are the good old days!!

I love your today's cartoon (Thursday). Oh, how true ...!

Thanks for the answer about the caps, Night Owl. It's really a shame that nurses don't wear their caps and uniforms anymore but I guess they like to be comfortable too. But a lot of them don't even wear white so it's hard to tell sometimes who is who in the hospital!

Liz, glad you enjoyed the cartoon! I love New Yorker cartoons, they all have that wry sense of humor.
