"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Tearing my hair out!

Having noticed the smart scrollers on Dale's and Magz's blogs, by courtesy of Gemmak, I decided I would like one too, but, being the independent, stubborn creature that I am, I wanted it to be a learning experience - I wanted to do it myself! So I started.....at 7 o'clock....and finished.......at 11o'clock BUT I did it!
In fact, I did it within the first 10 minutes but the wretched thing just showed as an empty white box, so I thought I must have done something wrong - hence, another 3 hours and 50 minutes of fiddling, doing, previewing, undoing, redoing and copious sighs, ranting and swearing.
But what a great feeling of achievement when I discovered I had done it...followed by total disbelief that I had wasted all that extra time unnecessarily. (How many books could I have read?) I still don't know what the problem was, but it works and that's the main thing....I think!
You know what they say: A man who never made a mistake never made anything. I suppose that goes for women too????
