#5 TW. Will you please allow me to include/upload a graphic of my choosing with a comment?
If so, how do we do that in simple terms?
Posted by: Shamp Clong8416  

Shamp Clong8416, you most certainly have permission to upload a graphic as part of your comment. The limitation is that it must be suitable for a family website -- there are school kids who read this site, so it ought not shock your ten year old daughter.

Fred thoughtfully put an icon for images on the bar below the comment bar -- it's that rectangular thingy, the last icon to the right. Clicking on it will enter the following HTML string in angle brackets: img src= valign=top align=right /. You'll need to paste the URL in quotes after src=. You should then have

img src="http://xxxxxx.jpg" valign=top align=right /

in angle brackets.

Please, please, please preview your post before submitting, to make sure it worked. I think my advice will work, but I cannot promise I got it all right -- this post is a request to our readers to either confirm or correct my errors.

Relatedly, I seem to recall that YouTube videos are submitted in comments as a link, attaching to a key word/phrase of the submitter's choice (highlight the word, click on the blue world icon in the icon bar, enter the YouTube's URL, then click OK.) Again, please preview to make sure it worked. Good luck!

#3 I recall Shirley Temple Black. Wasn't she an ambassador to some country (as well as a child movie star)? Is she still alive?

#4 Ms Black was ambassador to Czechoslovakia. They loved her -- I got to hear about it in the '90s.

#5 I was told that a farm in Gaithersburg, MD was the "Shirley Temple Black" farm. It was pretty near a very large shopping mall. Always kept very tidy. Never saw anyone there.

#10 Kids at this site? .com is spinning somewhere.

Both of the trailing daughters started reading Rantburg in junior high school, Nimble Spemble, as have the children of other Rantburgers. I have to assume there are others who found their way here without looking over parental shoulders to see what the laughter was about.

#12 She was also ambassador to Ghana, eventually became the State Department Chief of Protocol, youngest one if I remember correctly. Got breast cancer in the 1970's if I recall correctly and was one of the first celebs to come out about it to encourage early screening. Did an autobiography that was a good read. Wouldn't "play" with one of the studio heads when she became a teenager.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
