5 Things I Learned This Week-#86 (men, HTML tip, polls)

Real Men

When reading Dad at the Chalkboard I learned there is a Twitter group for dads called #DadsTalking. This was mentioned in the post he wrote on being a good husband which I found through Mrs 4444 Saturday Samplings. Just thought men may be interested in this. I love to see men actually care about being good husbands and good fathers!

Blogging Tip

I discovered how to get your images crawled to show up on Google searches at Design It Chic. In your picture HTML code, there is the word alt. Right after it before the " mark you insert some text that describes your image. (alt="describe your picture here") How simple is that! This is why I have "Design It Chic" on my blogroll--so I am sure to see when she posts tips. You may want to add this one to yours too!


I just started a Bible Study on Leadership Training at church and one of the key concepts this week was to look at problems or testing as opportunities that challenge leaders to demonstrate their potential and maturity. "Testing always precedes promotion." Source: Equip Leadership Training Part Two by John Maxwell.

Me or The Dog?

According to a poll of 761 votes on Paw Print Post that was printed in the Life section of USA TODAY on Sept. 7, 14% said If their significant other said, "Either the dog leaves or I do," they would get rid of the dog; 53% would get rid of their significant other instead of the dog (33% would work it out)! Our dog liked this!  Gerard said we would work it out.

Reading For Pleasure

The results of our poll over at Grab A Book From Our Stack revealed that out of 22 people, 16 were turned on to reading for pleasure by a parent.

My hubby would never (ever) say "Me or the pet!" He's a fantastic hubby and dad, but he knows my soft-spot for animals...the elderly, Christmas trees...

Have a great weekend, friends!

This was such a cute post...I enjoy reading all of them, but this one was really cute and funny. I checked out the "Design It Chick" site and thought it was so fun, I joined...

Oh, I didn't know that about people and dogs. I'm glad that your dog is happy and that you and Gerard will work it out :) :) :)

Have an awesome weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heahter :)

My husband would never say that because he knows who I'd choose! Plus, he could never leave me or the pets either!

I love reading and I hope my kids do too!

Daisy said...

Anyone who would give an ultimatum like "me of the pet" could not be very nice!

Karen said...

Thankfully my husband and I are on the same page when it coems to the dogs (and cats) at three each we can't afford to disagree on this one!

Karen and Gerard said...

Clarissa: Glad you liked!

Dina, Beaded Tail: We wouldn't say that either since we both love our dog.
