Aww, your pups are gorgeous! So sorry about the loss of your husband. I love your 17 reasons for a long and healthy life!
As far as entering the emoticons on the "Two Emoticons - Change One!" board, when you click on "reply", the next box that opens up has three buttons across the top - Spell Check, Add a Link, and Add an Emoticon. Click on the Add an Emoticon button. Find one of the two emoticons that have been posted already, and then choose another new one. Just click on the emoticon to enter it into your open message board box. For whatever reason, you can't copy and paste the emoticons on Spark Boards. You can copy and paste them elsewhere, bot not on Spark.
you're so sweet - NO! I'm not taking the lottery email seriously.
sad to say, I know somebody who did fall for one of those stupid 'international lottery' scams over the phone. I think she threw away about $70,000 before her son took over her accounts and limited her access. First her (adult) children tried changing her phone number so the scammer couldn't call her. But SHE called them and gave them the new phone number!
