My stars is all of Canada as beautiful as what we have had the privilege to see in this forum?

Just a quick question and maybe a suggestion. Would your mom use the porch in cool weather when the wind is blowing a little? If so maybe you could make lexan windows that would block the colder wind and could be removed when the weather got warmer. Just a thought.

Thank you for allowing us to share your project.
Thanks!

Why, yes, all of Canada is that beautiful - expect for that boring middle area from Quebec to Alberta.

I love the idea of adding lexan windows, but for now that's way out of budget - a possible future upgrade though.

Sorry, I guess you must have a PC then.

There must be some way you can get the º sign, I'm pretty sure.

Yup, PC. I'm pretty sure I could get just by entering its asci code though (assuming I ever bothered to look that up, which I probably won't lol).

The ascii codes for degree (ALT+ 0176, 0237, or 248) often won't work with xml authors of most forums.
If it is important to you, and you are on a newer operating system composing with MS Word 2007, you can go to the toolbar, select the <INSERT> tab, SYMBOLS / MORE SYMBOLS / SUPERSCRIPTS & SUBSCRIPTS, and you should find the DEGREE Symbol about 6 or 8 rows down on that chart. (should be in the center of the 7th row from the top)

Once you have done that, you should find any symbols you've selected right there in the first dropdown box from now on..... thus eliminating a couple of the steps listed above.


Of course, on this particular forum, we are fortunate..............................

All you have to do here is, while holding down the ALT key, (using only the number pad on the right of your keyboard) type in 0176. Then release the ALT key.

************************

Yes, I know many of you know how to enter ascii codes, but this explanation was for those experiencing it for the first time.

My stars, where in the world do you learn all of that stuff? I haven't even scratched the surface with computers yet.

Got my first computer in '83, so I've had some time for a few things to soak in.

The ascii codes are fun.... thousands of neat symbols you can just drop into your text anytime. Actually, the letters you are seeing appearing on your screen are each a separate asci code number sequence........ the keyboard just makes it easier for us nowdays.

Google ascii codes, and it will open up a whole new world of fun things to type in your posts.

To tell you the truth, I have to go to the MS Word <INSERT> menu all the time. It is next to impossible for any normal human to remember all those code numbers................. although in my younger days, I had about 50 of them memorized.

The more I see and learn about Canada the better I like it. It is just beautiful up ya'lls way.

Willie, I did a google on the code and I will be studying that for a while. I am just now smart enough to grasp all of that, Thanks for the heads up.

When you get the hang of it, try checking out how to COMBINE ASCII characters. Some will stack right on top of others. That's cool.

Perhaps one of the few advantages of being old. That, and the free senior soda at Taco Bell.
