tabs...thanks


So I spent the morning working on tabs. I googled it and played around with code. It's a work in progress. Thank you for the comments on word press / blogger. Let me know what you think. One thing that I want to fix is how the picture is atop of every section (Nick- so that you have to scroll to get to the content) and I am still updating the content.
Thank you everyone!

Thank you also for the feedback on the bake sale. The most common thing was the make it longer. It definitely would have helped and I wanted to extend it past Monday, but also wanted to be fair to everyone who made a bid on Monday. 4 boxes of purefit bars - retail $130 - went for $30. That was when I knew it was a fatal mistake to have only one day. 3 jars of peanut butter went for $27 but shipping was $20. Next time, I will know! I also learned alot about shipping, after spending around $80 on it. Check out USPS's flat rate boxes is all that I can say (after the fact)! Needless to say, I ended up raising a great amount of money because of you, and am super appreciative. I am $396.80 from raising $5000 (my personal goal). Some of you have asked me to post the link to donate so here it is! Thank you so much one and all - and especially the generous bakers!

I took Nick swimming today and it thundered outside and they cleared the indoor pool. Really? Never heard of that before!

  1. I think the tabs are a good idea and can't wait to see the finished project. (I hate how your work-in-progress is all exposed when you're working on a blog. I feel like I'd be caught half-dressed if someone happened to stop by in the middle of me changing my background or something, lol. It's not like a book or a project or something that you can just reveal the final draft. I don't mind seeing other people's work in progress though.)

  3. I had the same thoughts about switching to wordpress for tabs (and more sophisticated design), but I'm too lazy -- interested to see how yours evolves :)

    I was a lifeguard throughout HS and the concern with indoor pools wasn't about lightning striking the water directly, it's that the metal plumbing and wiring could be targets. I had just gone into the locker room after closing down one night when the pool was zapped -- freaky. Still frustrating when my local pool gets shut down every other day though.

  8. Great job raising money for a charity! Doing such a thing intimidates the hell out of me. And I'm impressed you figured out the links. Formatting on the blog intimidates the hell out of me as well.

  9. Made the granola....it rocks! I used a recipe from Emeril on foodtv.com.
    About the tabs - you're going to have to teach me.....i've tried other blogger sites and didn't like them (wordpress). I remember you asked me how to do this in class.....glad you finally figured it out! Now - come teach me and my students!!!!!

    I'm glad the bake sale was a success overall. It takes time to perfect these things - I'm sure the next one will be even better!
