5 Things I Learned in Week 4 of 2009

Tuna is not safe for cats and you should not give tuna to your cats, even though they like it. I learned this at The Cat Lovers Site.

I know I did a screen shot once before and posted it but forgot how and I didn't write the directions down so I looked it up at and here is what I found: Hold ALT-Prt Scrn, then Ctrl-V to paste in "Paint" under all programs, Accessories. I knew it was very simple, but forgot I had to actually paste it into Paint.

At Blogging From Home there is a post about a site where you can make your own comics. Supposedly, you can print it out or email it. I tried emailing mine, but it didn't work. Below is my attempt at taking the screen shot and putting it into this post:

At My Crazy Life With A Toddler I found 13 handy uses for coffee filters besides for making coffee. One is to clean mirrors and windows because they are lint free. Another is to use at the bottom of pots to keep the soil from coming out through the drainage holes. This is just a couple that I will keep in mind. You may want to check out the whole list.

I saw Mountain Woman from Red Pine Mountain is sharing her writing assignments with her readers so visit her blog to find out what the next writing assignment is. She invites her readers to do it along with her. The one I participated in was writing about a familiar place for you which is posted there now. Just thought I'd mention it in this post if you would like to read about it. You'll have to go there to find out what that place is; I'm not telling. Can you guess?

I learned about the tuna too and certainly didn't know that. Thanks for sharing all these today - I enjoy your Friday feature!

Glad that you like the comic strip. I guess they are most useful when there is no photo or video that can accompany a blog post.

On my part, once the comic strip is down, I print-screen it and paste it in MS-Paint then crop from there.

Look forward in seeing more comics in your blog.
