Hi Emmily - thanks for your welcome. The only reason I added my email was cos it was something I could do easily to make a start on here, having done a little previously with HTML. I can knock it off if you think it's inappropriate.

I had a look at a couple of the links you gave me and I'll look at the others when I get the time.

I looked at your homepage and saw the reference to Telewest - are you in the SW, or is it to do with your ISP? I used to live in Plymouth, which is why I ask.

Here's a question for you straight away: you say I'm in Brunel, but I'm not - I'm in GOO. Does the way it appears depend on your preference rather than mine? For instance, I see you in GOO too, but are you really in one of the others?

Thanks again. Time for a smiley - stiffdrink You see I've found the smiley page at least smiley - smiley

Thanks for replying David..smiley - smiley..
Having your email on your space is fine..It's just unlikely that anyone would use it..plus part of it was hidden by your picture..i didn't like to mention that..smiley - biggrin..

I'm an Essex girl..smiley - laugh..I used to only access here via a magic email..on my Telewest digital box..i'm now lucky enough to have a PC..smiley - magic..

As far as I'm aware..the default skin..is brunel..dark black with green & red..personally..I don't like it..I don't like Goo either..all sort of bluey..I use alabaster..and yes..you do view all pages in the skin you choose from Preferences..you'll come across some pages that say 'best viewed in goo/alabaster'..that's because some web colours can't be seen in all the skins..

I hope I've explained that clearly and haven't confused you..enjoy your smiley - stiffdrink..

Thank you. Maybe now I've added a bit of text the email is visible. That's interesting about the colours - some of your links are not too clear when viewed in GOO, but that might just be a touch of colour blindness on my part. smiley - smiley

erm..smiley - sorry..I've just changed to GOO to check the colours on my space..I could see them all..though I am at the moment changing my space..so things maybe appearing and disapearing..

I've just read your space..I'll add Gilbert to my list asap..I was recently offered a five month old West Highland Terrier..as I already have 2 dogs..I had to turn it down..I'd love to have more dogs..just can't afford to..

No - I'm sure it's my eyes. But please don't start what everyone does: "Oh - what can't you see then?" (How do I know? I can't see it) "Oh what colour does this look to you then?" and so on. Westies are lovely - real little characters with a determined mind of their own.

Don't worry..I wasn't going to ask those quiestions..in the same way that..if a child..(or adult)..shows fear of my dogs..I don't say.."they won't hurt you"..I don't know why the child..(adult)..has the fear..I simply apolagise..&..keep my dogs well away from them..

It's after 1am..I'm off to bed..enjoy your..smiley - surfer..

smiley - smiley I think I packed up about the same time as you did last night. I've been finding my way around, as you can see. Trouble is, there's not a lot worth putting on a page, as all too many people fail to realise! Still, I'll think of something. I like those sparkly links you use, by the way. smiley - smiley

Glad your finding your way around David..

Before I changed my page last night..I had my name..where I lived..my hobbies..my favourite TV progs..etc..I took all that off..&..tried to add some humour to my page..the giving up smoking bit..was because..I stopped smoking for 5 months..then stupidly started again over xmas..that's a reminder for me to stop again..as well as support for others who are trying to stop..

If you want to add coloured text to your space..on my useful [email protected] A742619 there are 2 web colour pages to choose from..you might find them useful..smiley - smiley..

Well, I can understand that. And remember - you had perhaps 14 years in school - even leaving out uni I have had - jeez - 48 so far one way and another! As for disliking teachers, well, I can understand that too. Bossy know-alls most of them. I rarely go to end of term do's with them - why pay to spend time with people I avoid all term for free? Roll on retirement says me. smiley - smiley

smiley - smiley Yes, you are right about it being part of the job description, but if you notice I was complaining about the teachers. The holidays are good (which is why they want to mess around with them of course) the hours are OK, the pay is not great, but not bad either. Mind you, since whieboards arrived we don't get free chalk any more. Is that worth a complaint?

I know about being able to join in conversations, thanks - I've looked at one or two, but didn't feel I had a lot to add.

Have a good weekend. I'll think of you as i sit there marking and profiling - only kidding. I don't intend to do any of either. smiley - smiley

Hiya smiley - smiley. Haven't heard from you for a while (OK I know I haven't been in touch either), but I came across this and thought you might like it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/classic/A432172. I'm sure I could have done it as a link if I had tried!
Waves smiley - smileyA432172 Ha! See? Said I could.
