Block quote practice

My hubby and I were all encouraged because he figured out how to center my blog header.  On the heels of that success I decided to once again attempt to change my block quote to something a little more distinctive.  Well, I think I've done it.
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place. -Mark Twain
Of course this isn't very bold or demanding, but then, neither is my blog.
Congratulations to American Astronaut Shannon Lucid, she now holds the American record for most time in space. Of course, the old record was held by Jerry Garcia."

My children always quote funny lines from movies.
If you teach your children nothing else, teach them the Golden Rule and "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey."  ~Robert Brault
No one taught me righty-tighty, lefty-loosey until I was in my 40s. Believe me it is a mantra around the house now!



  1. OK. It is not perfect. I see that my photo came in as a block quote. hmmm.

  2. I also learned of "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey" in my 40's! How did I ever live without that knowledge????

  3. Oh, wow...you can change the way quotes look on your blog?? That sounds advanced - after 8 years of blogging, I am still a beginner! lol

    I think my husband taught me righty-tighty lefty-loosey. Oh, I better make sure my boys know that...
