I'm still around, and I know I haven't gotten to posting yet, I've been battling depression like whoa, just this week forcing myself to work on some beading projects to get the ball rolling, I have quite a few things I need to get done before the fall season starts (Sept 8, btw).

Today at dinner my youngest daughter asked me if Mermaids were mammals, fish, or amphibians? This became quite the discussion with some differing viewpoints I had not thought about. Does anyone have a credible answer?

I would have to go with them being a marine mammal. It's amazing what kind of questions children can come up with that adults never even thought about.

Here is an in-depth discussion on that matter: http://www.answers.com/Q/Are_mermaids_mammals

depending on the books and cultures that have Mermaids, they are either MArine creatures, since they cannot survive, and in most stories, eat humans?... romance stories tend to make them more like Mammals with Shape changing, in which to either Lure Humans to thier realms( never to be seen again)..or..to Join with Humans above water..almost all stories makes this a very hard and painful process for mermainds..as it is deadly for Humans to 'enter thier realms"... If Rags' Youngest is comign up with something for play or to write?.. she, of course, could put her own spin on it.... Just remember, out side of Disney, whether it be greeks, celts, or old british sailors..mermaids lured sailors to thier deaths!

Ok folks?.... help me out here.... when I post my RP.. the 'conversation' is the same color as the Non-conversation?, I clicked the "A" and the color I wanted, but I just noticed at the Text is green, instead of just the conversation I put between the 'Color" brackets?.. I'm doing something wrong, , others places the Green will show up, with black 'non- conversation"..how can I make this work?... I noticed , in my thread, Rags has Bold for the Conversation?.. is that what I have to do?

do the advanced posting, then you can preview your post before it posts, helps with the coding.

Does she believe mermaids are real, mythological, or a character race she would like to play?

Hey donsr try this, first click on the color icon and it will then show COLOR="Sienna"[/COLOR] only the COLOR="Sienna" will also be in brackets, then write what you want to communicate in between the brackets it should show up as hoped. One thing I have found is choosing a color that is easily seen, because some colors are there, they just aren't particularly visible against the white background of the page, like silver, which I first used for Ru's thoughts. I then tried Sieanna and that has appeared readable as you can see below.

She couldn't see Ru, then suddenly he emerged from the greenery elf dark, smell uglyKahvi watched him grimace and lick his face trying to rid the smell of the drow two of ugly smell elf, three long ear goblins

Hi Hextor, my daughter doesn't believe mermaids are real, though she wishes so. She has sewn herself a mermaid costume and bought a tail which she then fitted to her costume. When she goes to the YMCA she puts on her costume and along with a few other girls they swim about. She calls it mermaiding. She also listens to a mermaiding podcast on Thursday nights. It's all quite bewildering to me, but so is the popularity of the Beatles and stamp collecting. Some things you just have to scratch your head and accept....

Some of the colors are just hard to read when not bold. So it may be that you are having a hard time seeing the green.

Example:

Unbold: Green

Bold: Green

hi guys, I have changed my backrounds until I could see all the little nots around the board, so I wouldn't miss anything, at least until I get sued to know what to look for , or not look for..... I did Put Green In the Color Brackets...like other place?.. I thought , maybe there was somethign else I had to do.

..trying Dark red now.. i'll see what happens, if it works, it may be my back round?..i dunno..anyway Until I figure it out, i'll use bold for 'talking'..so its easier for rags to see what is being said, as to what is described.
