    no, seriously, what’s an ablution? the fronts of the lower legs belonging to the bear from “The Jungle Book”?

    Seriously, Templo…..

     

    Here’s a link ….

    (highlight it, right-click, and open in a new window.)

     

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=ablutions

     

    Hope that helps.

    Laughing Kitty….

    Yep.

     

    It’s a site called lmgtfy.com…..

    which stands for “Let Me Google That For You dot com”

     

    It used to be snarkier (and funnier) ….

    cos it didn’t give the tips, on the left….

     

    it would merely open Google and type in your query…

    and after it reached the results page it would type out,

    “Now was that so hard?”

    As if to say “Can’t you just Google that, instead of asking us?”

     

    But they realised a lot of people thought it was meant to be helpful rather than sarcastic,

    so they toned down the snark.

     

    As for the right-click menu…

    it depends on what browser you use.

    My example is from Firefox, which I find to be the browser with the most, and also the most helpful, options.

     

    There are some browsers that won’t even follow links….

    you have to copy and paste them into the address bar of a fresh window.

     

    I used to mention all that every time I posted a text link,

    after they took away our ability to post “live” ones you could just click.

    But it gets unwieldy… and time-consuming.

    I use the word from time to time. I learnt it from Pride and Prejudice chapter 25: “Mr. Darcy may, perhaps, have heard of such a place as Gracechurch Street, but he would hardly think a month’s ablution enough to cleanse him from its impurities, were he once to enter it.”

    It’s the Miracle of Spousal Transformation that Nelson will learn all about – when he’s older and married !

    If you have a PRO account (or even if you don’t), I recommend you log into your account at beta.gocomics.com (before the transition), and check your profile (MY PROFILE in the dropdown menu shown by clicking your avatar). You may be surprised by what’s there (may want to change it, like I did). If you change it, I don’t know that the change will be effective after the transition (may want to check your profile again).

    Earl needs a few beers and Opal won’t look that bad. The best part is beer’s not just for breakfast anymore.

    I’ve been watching reruns of Barney Miller, and Earl sounded just like Fish (Abe Vigoda) talking about his wife Bernice.

    This “sign in to comment” is getting REALLY annoying! I’m starting to get used to this new site, but I certainly DO NOT like it so far!
