Friday themes

We had the stonesoup AGM-type thing yesterday and one of the things coming out of that was a resolution to try out having themes on Friday. Like, a topic you can write about if you wish. Anyone can join in or not, as they see fit. No notice required. And if you do, you can trackback to the entry here in Too Many Cooks so that we have an index of participating entries and can read them all.

For this Friday, the topic is Wellington. If you're not a stonesouper and not connected to Wellington but still want to play, you could do your own hometown.

Pick an aspect, a corner, or a memory and post it Friday. Then trackback to here. That's all.

Also, we're seeking suggestions of other topics.

Can you check "allow pings" for this post?

Todays dumb question: How do I tell it to trailback?

Shall I do mine on Thursday afternoon/evening so it's there for you on Friday?

(ooops, just realised this is wrong in the recipe for stonesoup - will fix it later; for now, refer below)

To trackback to someone else’s entry, you need to find the trackback link for that entry. Click on "Trackback" at the bottom of the entry, and it says something like, "TrackBack URL for this entry:".

Copy that URL into the URLs to Ping field in your editing form. (If the URLs to Ping field isn't displaying, you need to customise your editing form by clicking the link at the bottom of it.)

Does this make sense?

Yes, that does make sense. I'll have a go!

sorry for the double trackback entry. It registered as having an error so I didn't realise it had worked. Doh. Is it possible for someone to delete it for me?

Oooops. Me too...
