What to do with an extra hour? Dilemma since 1784.

We have Benjamin Franklin to thank for our time zones. Of course because the earth’s relationship with the sun doesn’t give us constant days we have the issue of how much daylight we have in a particular time zone. Along the way he proposed the idea of daylight savings time. Just think, with that extra hour coming up I can get more blogging done! At Council Blogs we’re celebrating by generating an additional blog post. Check out the links to the right to see what everyone’s extra post is all about.

Double space mystery – the hidden secret #13

One morning in blogging club Dave said, “how do you single space the lines?” Every time we hit enter it would jump down two lines. When we tried to backspace over the carriage return it would go back to the other line of text.  Hmmm, try as we may, the closest thing we could find to have single lines was to use the Heading4 format. Of course all the other things that come along with it made it look goofy. We delved into playing around with the HTML tab. Trying to find codes that would allow single lines but nothing elegant. After thinking that it was getting too involved, we turned to the next best thing, a Google search. After reading numerous forums and experimenting with various search terms, we found it. How simple could it be? In the WordPress editor the default is double spacing. If you hold the shift key down while you hit enter it will single space. How simple could it be? Now we are all happy at Blogging Club in the cyber Wigwam. Why hidden secret #13? Click here for the rest of the story.
