Degree Sign

We are having beautiful spring weather today (mid 50º's).

A big thanks to Kerri who posted a handy tip on how to get the degree sign. Kerri, I had to stop in the middle of this post and go to your blog to find the tip. Even though I wrote it on a scrap of paper on my 'puter desk, I've already lost it. I can't tell you how many times I've needed that sign and could not remember how to do it.

Here is how it's done:
use the key pad

I went out after work and sprayed all of the tulips with Hinder. Hopefully, the deer won't eat them.

I thought I might go out and begin raking and cutting down, but, on second thought, I decided to just make a nice cup of Cafe Vienna and relax.

I think I will do a little sewing now since I have not done any for about a week.


  1. I've just noticed your new Profile Pic. I do hope that is not a permanent pose and you can get yourself untangled?

  2. LOL, Alice. Do you remember the game Twister?
    I was in the Dearfield museum near Detroit and they had a display of games from when I was a kid. Had to see if I was still limber enough to play was fun.

  3. Yes, one of the grandchildren was given Twister for last Christmas. Glad 'the kid' is still alive and well.

  5. I tried to post some other ascii characters but it didn't translate well. You can find more at under 'Extended Ascii Codes'

  6. Thank you both Zooey & Kerry! This is useful stuff.

  7. Love your new fun profile picture Zoey. Glad you're still feeling spry enough to twist :) I see you have another Kerry (spelled with a 'Y'. That could be confusing :) I must visit her! Now if she starts posting computer tips we'll really confuse people :) I'll have to check out the website she mentioned.
    Glad you're having some beautiful weather. It's sunny and already 53º here in NY at 9:20AM. It's going to be another glorious day! This weather just makes us northerners feel great, doesn't it? It's like an awakening! I wonder if animals who hibernate feel this way in the spring :)
    Glad you found the tip about the º sign useful. I love making those things :) Enjoy your coffee break!

  8. Lol, another Kerry and another techie, a web goddess by profession a gardener by passion. I'll try to keep the computer tips to a minimum to avoid confusion ;-)
