If it's a youtube video, you have two options. You can grab the url of the video (not the embed code) and paste it into the little box that pops up when you click the filmstrip icon on the rich text editor. Don't change any of the settings. Then save. Do not preview your post. Video will not work if you preview your post.  Or, you can copy the embed code, click the HTML icon on the rich text editor and paste the code in there. Again, DO NOT PREVIEW. If you preview, the video won't work.  If the video is not from youtube, your only option is to use the embed code with the html icon.  Email denise@blogher.com for more help.
Thank you. I'm pretty sure that's what I was doing wrong. I'm going to try again without the preview. Wish me luck

Sorry, not me.  But I hope you find someone.  I'm sending good luck vibes.
cdrdash Thank you! We do have a room at the Fairmont, but were hoping to move to one of the closer hotels. At least we're not stranded!

I really appreciate the online friends I have on the AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network) forums "Over 50" thread.  Its a wonderful little corner of the internet for me with like minded individuals to share with.
cdrdash Lovely! I'm glad for you. :)

Is THAT what's going on? I've got some here. And, they are laughing at my fly paper!

No kidding!
Would love to meet you at the conference Linda.  Do you have a picture I could peek at to know what you look like?

: Damn. I just finished off another bag of cherries.

Jealous! I've been craving cherries, but they're still too expensive up here. :(
LOVE cherries. They are so good for one's joints, I think they qualify as medicine and that justifies the expense. Uh-huh. Here's a "tonic:"  Bourbon Cherries - cup of bourbon, 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar, 2 cups whole fresh cherries. Heat bourbon, dissolve sugar, submerge cherries, covered, keep in fridge up to one month.  >Hic<

Maybe @karen ballum drank it ;-)
cdrdash I wish! That would mean she's sitting next to me and we could discuss all the things
Denise cdrdash But I will be sitting next to you next week! And we can talk about all the things! Maybe I'll even bring Starbucks.
Karen Ballum Denise cdrdash Would that be in San Jose at Blogher'14, cause then I can annoy you in person while you two are talking about all the things!
This is not good...
Very concerned...
Maybe we should organize an intervention at BH14

Ack, not good. :(
: Today there are two. Two flies in my office, buzzing around and making me nuts.

Comments

Do you have a fly swatter or are they too darned fast to smash?  I first read that as "I have two files in my office" and was mildly confused.
cdrdash I do but two things happen as soon as I pick it up: 1) the dogs go running in fear -- I don't really want them to be afraid that I'm going to hit them but there you go 2) the flies disappear completely, until I put the fly swatter down and go back to work.
Are they gone today? Here's hoping!
Laurel Regan Well, so far -- they are not flying around my desk. I'm sure they're just waiting for the perfect moment to begin annoying me.
Denise LOL, as they do!
I am such a fan of fly paper. I hang it over something tasty that's set out just for them. It's like leaving cookies for Santa. Sort 'of.
