Through the advice of a blogger friend, Irene of "A new world of Living" I switched my blog back to blogspot. I found my blog "My Life in Holland" again. I was very happy to see my blog again. But I was wondering what happened to the domain name I bought for this blog. It was valid until April 2011. I cannot switch back to my old domain name because it requires me to buy again a domain name which I still have but does not work. As I have written in my previous post that I could not contact the webhosting company anymore because I forgot the company name where I bought the domain name. I do not know what to do. Maybe I will just leave it like this, back to blogspot.com.
An elderly widow and widower were dating for about five years. The man finally decided to ask her to marry. She immediately said "yes".
The next morning when he awoke, he couldn't remember what her answer was! "Was she happy? I think so, wait, no, she looked at me funny..."
After about an hour of trying to remember to no avail, he got on the telephone and gave her a call. Embarrassed, he admitted that he didn't remember her answer to the marriage proposal.
"Oh", she said, "I'm so glad you called. I remembered saying 'yes' to someone, but I couldn't remember who it was."
Son: How much does it cost to get married, Dad?
Father: I don't know son, I'm still paying for it.
Son: Is it true? Dad, I heard that in ancient China, a man doesn't know his wife until he marries.
Father: That happens everywhere, son, everywhere!

I do blog hopping not so often as before because I am now busy with my home study. I am now studying the Dutch Basic Knowledge in Business Calculation. Plan to take the exam in November and of course hope to pass the exam too. I do often check my emails and my blogs. I have just read the comments left on this blog. One of the commenters was Cen of Cens' World.
A psychotherapist was having a roaring business since he started from scratch. So much so that he could now afford to have a proper shop banner advertising his wares. So he told a kid to paint the sign board for him; put it above his shop entrance.
But, instead of his business building up, it began to slacken. He had especially noticed the ladies shying away from his shop after reading the sign board. So he decided to check it out himself. Then he understood why !
The boy found a small wooden board so he had split the word into the 3 words :
My son loves to watch animals. He aksed if I could find some wild animals on the net. So, I immediately searched them. He already saw crocodiles, tigers, otter and more. My son enjoyed watching this video. He found it amazing.
I can't imagine how internet works. We can find almost everything we are looking for.
I am a little bit meticulous. Not bad. No, I just want to see everything is in order and in a right place. Hmm, I just want to see what I did is nice to look at.
I hop from one blog to another everyday and leave comments if I like the posts. I see youtube screen which transcends the post layout.
When you paste the embedded code into your post put it at edit HTML. You can see the sizes of the youtube screen like this:
I have been experimenting how to adjust or put margin between my posts. It does'nt look nice if two posts are very close/far to each other. After some time of googling I found this code: margin-bottom:2.0em. Insert this code in the CSS
1. Open Layout
2. Make a back-up of your template
3. Click EDIT HTML
4. Find this part in the CSS: MAIN
5. Look for the word post
It looks like this:
margin:0px 0px 0px 0px;
padding; 0px 0px 0px 0px;

I have been searching on the net how to post HTML codes in my posts because I want to share what I have learned in blogging especially placing HTML codes in the posts. Last time I had posted how to make a blog badge. I needed HTML codes in my post. Here is what I have found.
Here is a list of the most common HTML character entities:
I think I have to review the comments before they are published. I have received so many comment spam in my blog, "My Life in Holland".
The ability to moderate comments as they are added to your blog can be very handy if you want to catch any comment spam before it reaches your page or if you'd like control over the kind of messages people can leave on your blog. You can find the comment moderation setting on the Settings | Comments tab, along with all of the other comment settings.
I often receive comments written in characters. How could you leave a comment written in character where the blog is written in English? I do not understand.
When someone leaves a comment I usually visit his blog just to check for interesting posts. If there are, then I will follow him or even have an exchange links. When I checked the blogs written in characters, the blogs had no entries at all. It is really a spam. It is really irritating. From now on, I will moderate all the comments left in my blog.
Do you also receive comment spam?
We went to the Butterfly and Orchids Park last Wednesday. We took lots of pictures. I use the pictures on my blog. I have been changing my blog header in my other blogs. I like to see another changes in my blog. It is boring to see the same thing. It is very easy to make a blog header. You only need a picture size of 970 pixels. I have resized all the pictures below. I only need the butterflies, so I cut the unnecessary background.
Here are some pictures for your blog header, feel free to download/copy them.
I visit multiple blogs everyday. I see blog posts with different FONTS and COLORS. How come?
It is because you copy a text from the net. You copy not only the words but also the fonts and layout of the texts. If you have this in your post, advertisers can see that you copy something from the net.
HOW TO FIX THIS?
There are two ways to remove the tags on copied texts from Word Documents or from the net.
1. Go to EDIT POST
Click EDIT HTML (post)
Remove all the tags.
Look at the sample below of copied texts from a Word Document, then you will understand what TAGS are.
