Post by: Mike Bobbitt on June 28, 2017, 19:00:57
Folks,

A few fairly minor updates for Canada's 150th:

Have a happy (and safe) Canada Day all!


Cheers
Mike

Thank you Mike. Have a great Canada Day.

I thought you'd let members "roll up their webpages"
Since everyone and their dog are jumping on the 150 theme.   [:p

The red menu
On my computer, the red looks burgundy -- almost......an Airborne maroon!    :nod:

I like it.   ;D    :cheers:

My wife is quite excited about Ike coming to town.   She said Ike and her mates had already arrived earlier this afternoon.  I'm sure the crews will have a good port visit,  it's good to see them visit.  I hope the weather will be better than here in Notawwa, the PMs going to have his parade rained upon.  (hope he uses hair spray)

Thanks Mike!

I used to turn on/off a series of themed holiday smilies for the site.  There were sets for everything from Christmas, Halloween, Remembrance Day, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day through to Friday the 13th, Talk like a Pirate Day and the seasons of winter & spring (in fact, I see the snowman & guy shivering in scarf are still up on the preview page).  There were also a few Canada Day smilies ... some of these are currently hidden and others would be promoted from the pop-up screen to the preview/editing screen.  As I never found a script to automatically tie individual smilies to calendar dates, maybe one of your new moderators would like to take on this function ... even if only for Canada Day & Remembrance Day.

I appreciate the easier on the eyes, maroon colour.  The vivid red of last year burned out my retinas.

Thanks MCG, I appreciate the past work and the heads-up. I've moved us from winter to Canada Day in the enoji world.  :cdnsalute:

Expressing my gratitude, luck and good fortune to live in such a great country.

Had the opportunity to travel to many places but in the context of our present times I celebrate the values of this great 150 year old country.
 
  Happy Canada Day   :cdn:

Happy Canada Day for those who want to celebrate it.  Seems to be plenty of those who wish to complain on the CBC coverage of today's events.

Perhaps they should move somewhere that's not overly hospitable to its own citizens...then they'd realize their First World Problems are just that.
