    Hi AG, great idea to add these to your sidebar! I'm currently looking for a good sweet coffee recipe for my very first SHF! :)

    Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the dates - which I use for catching up on good reads. Don't tell me you hard coded every date??? That is a lot of work :). I notice some blogs have those calender thingy. Can't wait for Paper Chef #9.

    Hi Kelly - I've been meaning to do it for some time but just haven't gotten around to it until now.

    Yes, I'm still brainstorming for SHF. Can't wait to see your baptismal entry!

    Hi Saffron - It was definitely interesting to compare the expertise of local govt Webmasters =)

    Hi Tian - I'll take that as a compliment! =)

    Hi 2-minute Noodle Cook - You're welcome. And yes, I did hard code every date! It took a while, but 95% of it was actually finding all the events and dates.

    I think you'll find only typepad paid users have the calendar option. Blogger doesn't have that capacity.

    This is great - I'll have to check in and keep up to date with what's going on - there's so much now it's quite difficult to keep track of it all!

  • At 8/06/2005 10:30 pm, Blogger Helen (AugustusGloop) said…

    Hi boo licious - Yep, it's hard to track the latest themes sometimes. Can't wait to see your entry!

    Hi Clare Eats - whoops! Forget to check the TV guide. Oh well. Will make next week's episode even more exciting!

    Hi Samantha - You're welcome! Good luck with the mammoth task!

    Hi Plum - Glad it's of use to you. I refer to it constantly myself--so many events happening, it's almost stressful! lol

    hey, the naked chef is on channel 10 in 10 minutes! ..

    Hi Tian - I spotted it just in time! Didn't that fish look so tasty and easy too... the asparagus parcels looked delicious as well!
