Monday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

I am extremely frustrated right now because I have been trying to change my blog template/background and just can't seem to do it.  I tried it on a test blog and made a mess of it.  Anyway, I have asked a friend if she can help me, so I hope that she can.  I don't know HTML and I am not comfortable with changing templates...I found one that I want that is not a Blogger one so I hope that my friend will be able to help.  She knows a lot more than I about Blogger and how to do this stuff, and she knows HTML.  I watched a couple of videos on how to do it, and when I attempted to do it following the instructions it didn't work.  Oh, well.  I hope you all enjoy this post.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Christmas at Titanic Belfast

Just for You - Giovanni Marradi

Telephone Commercial 1950's

  4. I change my background every time I post. But I only use the one that blogger provides. I am not sure I could figure out any other kinds.

  14. Hi, Linda! My blog template has remained unchanged since I first started publishing in the summer of 2008. As you know by now, SDM&M is based on the Shady Dell, a hangout for teenagers that I frequented in the 60s. The Dell was simple and basic, a 50+ year old three story brick house with a snack bar at ground level and a nearby barn annex with a jukebox and dance floor. There was nothing fancy about the Dell. It did not change from year to year. It did not undergo renovation and modernization. That's why I have kept my SDM&M tribute blog looking the same all these years.

    The item in today's post that I found most interesting was the 50s tutorial on how to use a telephone. As you might have noticed, phone numbers contained only 5 digits back then. Incredible as it might seem, I still remember my 5-digit telephone number from the 1950s. It was 9-8-2-3-6. Can you believe that?

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend Linda!

  19. Yes, Blogger drives me nuts too! I'm not computer-savvy so parts of my blog just continue to stay the same..... Good luck, and I hope your friend is able to help.

  24. Hi Linda, good luck with your template change. I like the blog with 3 photos at the top I am not sure if it is Blogger or not.
    I like the old phone commercial. Makes me think of my first job at the Quebec Telephone in Gaspe, in the late 1960's. It was on the switchboard and we had party lines.( A lot of people on one line). We had to dial up the number.
    Times have changed.

  29. The telephone commercial is fantastic. How far we have come! The Giovanni Marradi clip is a beauty. That Golden Rule is always in the back of my mind. We should never take things for granted.

  32. i can empathise with the blogspot frustrations ... there've been times when i've wanted to make adjustments too, regarding photo sizes etc, but couldn't figure out how to do it, since i also don't know how to work html. i hope you get the template that you want very soon! :)

  35. I have had the same template for years. I don't know what I'm doing, so I leave it and just change the background a bit.

  36. I agree with the Go,den Rule. It will make life more lighter and happier. I wish you all the best in your upcoming endeavours on the Blog and in the coming New Year!

  37. "Be sure you allow the dial to fully return to the finger position."

    That's priceless! :)

    I love that old commercial/how to use your phone ad from the 50's. I did have an old phone like that at my grandma's where you had the finger stops and actually have to dial.

    Sorry to hear about your HTML/CSS troubles, I've been meaning to fix mine too but have been running into frustrating problems as well...and I graduated in Computer Science! I don't know what that says about me. :)

    Love your inspiring and fun posts as always, Linda!
