Search this Blog!

Since I haven't had too much of interest to show you lately, I thought I'd remind you that you can search this blog. I have been so impressed with how good Blogger's search feature works. The search I'm referring to is the box in the upper left corner. You have to scroll to the top of the page to see it. It's directly after the orange Blogger logo and just before the words, "Search Blog". If you don't see it, watch the Video Tour of Blog (link in right sidebar) and I'll show it to you. This feature has been available for a long time, but it works so much better now with the 'New' blogger. It must be connected to the underlying database of posts because it's so fast and accurate. So, give it a try! Just click in the box next to the Orange B and type Redwoods, then press Enter, or click on 'Search Blog'. You should quickly see a message "Showing posts for query redwoods." The first 2 posts simply mention Redwoods in another context, but if you scroll down, you'll get to the post with photos of the redwoods. Or try searching for Buckminster Fuller. You will quickly be taken to our post about a visit to the Ford Museum to see the exhibit on Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion house. The only problem is that the search is very precise. For example, enter 'chiricahua' and click 'search blog' and you will be rewarded with posts that mention Chiricahua National Monument. But, if you misspelled it and typed in Chiricajua, you'd get a message "No posts match your query". So, you might try "National Monument". However, even though you will see some results with this search, you won't see Chiricahua because I referred to it as a Nat'l Monument! Have fun, and let me know what you find!

Hello, I found your blog through a site called rvthereyet.cc. This site has posted a long list of RV blogs, including yours and mine as well. I've clicked on a few of the links there and have enjoyed reading some of your recent posts.
