Lady P,

Calm down, dear.

Don\'t worry your pretty little head about this, IE will help you.

1.  Highlight the first line of the limerick and press the Ctrl and the C keys together.

2.  Go to Google.

3.  With your cursor in the field where you normally type, press the Ctrl and the V keys together.

4.  The first line will now be copied into that field.

5.  If a list of sites doesn\'t appear immediately, press Enter or click on Google Search.

6.  A list of sites will appear.

That should take no longer than 30 seconds.

If there\'s anything else I can help with, you know where to find me.

May take you up - what about \"all you ever wanted to know about Word Processing and never liked to ask\"*   So I can write a book.

If you post limericks on this phorum
Make sure that they don\'t lack decorum
And, if they\'re not yours,
You\'d best quote the source
Or everyone else will deplore \'em.

It looks like an orange to me.

Can\'t see any resemblance to sardines?

I don\'t do poetry in any form myself, but i do have books . . . Here\'s one, Spike Milligan\'s \'Silly Verse for Kids\', that\'s got to have something good in it.

How about:

The land of Bumbley Boo

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
The People are red white and blue,
They never blow noses,
Or ever wear closes,
What a sensible thing to do!

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
You can buy Lemon pie at the zoo;
They give away foxes
In little Pink Boxes
And Bottles of Dandylion Stew.

In the land of the Bumbley Boo
You never see a Gnu,
But thousands of cats
Wearing trousers and hats
Made of Pumpkins and Pelican Glue!


There\'s a chorus too but that\'s not a limerick.
