This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Alka-Seltzer. Relief is just a swallow away!
Yes, that’s Buster Keaton with Speedy.
You’ll notice that the comment form now says that you can use Markdown in your comments, and Janet asked “so what’s Markdown?” It’s a text-to-html processor that gaining in popularity that WordPress supports. It helps you with things like text formatting (boldface and italics) and links, because you don’t have to code all the HTML tags. The definition for the language is here, if you want to have a look.
The Blogging From A to Z April Challenge starts tomorrow. I’ve got my posts set for 7 AM Eastern each morning, so look for them. I’m featuring words that have an X in them, if you hadn’t heard. I’ve got the first couple of weeks worth of posts written, so I’ll still have time to keep up with everything else I do around here. Yes, I’m crazy, and no, I don’t care who knows it. Here’s the summary for the week.
Monday was my birthday, and I celebrated by featuring more artists who have birthdays in March. There are quite a few, as I learned.
Saxophonist Kirk Whalum was the featured artist.
I chose part of the soliloquy that James Earl Jones spoke toward the climax of the movie Field of Dreams, in honor of the start of the baseball season, which started Thursday.
I participated in Laura’s weekly song challenge again this week.
I talked about the time I flew with an upper respiratory infection. It was agony.
We visited KRBE in Houston, Texas and played their Top 10 from 1977, which had surprisingly little disco on it.
I wrote about what little I know about The Simpsons, since the prompt(s) included Homer Simpson’s favorite exclamation, “D’oh!”
The A to Z Challenge starts tomorrow, as I mentioned earlier, so there will be a lot of posting this week, since I’m going to try and keep up with my usual posting scheduler. There’ll be a Battle of the Bands tomorrow, as well as Monday’s Music Moves me, and all the other regular features will be here.
