When you use the multi-quote button it automatically adds a Insert Quotes button in the message box. Click that. That will open a window showing the quotes and you click on Quote Messages. That puts all the quoted messages into the message box for you.
I’ve noticed that it doesn’t forget what you’ve quoted. So the next time you want to multi-quote, and that window opens, you have to click Remove on the old quotes.

cool ... thanks.

@HBS Guy Let's see if this LL story will play for you. If not, the URL without the https:// is

It's source is the same as that other one that wouldn't play for you guys, News Flare.

Nice story ....

Orphan puppy given instant relief from pain after sharp foxtail removed from eye at Mexican shelter

This was the moment a three-month-old puppy was given an instant relief from pain during a procedure to remove a razor-sharp piece of foxtail grass from her eye.

Footage shows the pooch on a vet's table being subdued while the owner of the shelter removes the sharp piece of grass from the pup's eye, which instantly gives the adorable animal a sense of relief and happiness as it wags its tail in excitement.

The dog named "Saturday" arrived at the Los Adoptables shelter in Punta Banda with her six other siblings - who are all named after days of the week.

The owner of the Shelter explained to Newsflare that Saturday was incredibly mellow when she arrived and suspected an eye infection but medication didn't help.

They said: "We got a litter of puppies and we thought one of them had an eye infection, after a couple of days on meds it was not getting better, we took a closer look and found the culprit."

The shelter provides temporary accommodation to animals before they can be eligible for adoption.

Before transitioning to be eligible adoption, they go through a quarantine period where they are given medical examinations and treatment.

The shelter is funded from donations by the general public.

I have hit the quote tab, without meaning to, and I guess they are unrelated, from different topics. I don't know how to unquote

but I just tried the Button below and I removed it yeah.

Now the button is gone.. so I imagine it will only reappear when I hit +q button again.


To quote myself, incorrectly quoting Kamahl... Why is Life so hard.

Haha! It's not hard once you get used to it. Right, the button appears after you hit the +q button.

There is absolutely no wind. It is dead calm, and we are sitting in a fog of smoke that isn’t going anywhere.

That’s exactly what I have been doing. We’re all suffering from cabin fever. What a year.
Sounds like when I was in Canberra last December. Bush fires everywhere, smoke everywhere, house shut up......and the fucking smoke alarms going off at 2 fucking am!

Yeah...annoying false alarms....just bushfire smoke in the house. Something to do with their system of airconditioning. Pissed me off large. I was alone in the huge house with Brother and His Wife having gone to Sydney for something or other. 2.00 am.....ish......alarm outside where I was sleeping goes off.....I shut that fucker up......back to bed, and a tad later, alarm at another part of the house goes off....out of bed again...shut that off....back to bed...and the two bastard alarms kept doing that for at least an hour plus!

I used to manage a property where one tenant of two years, a single working mum with two teenage kids, constantly complained that her smoke alarms kept going off. It was almost a monthly occurrence. It got to the stage where I ended up replacing the smoke alarms with new ones, at the owners expense. Even after that, she'd ring me periodically to complain that it was still happening. I asked all the usual question .. Is anyone smoking inside? No, where you cooking? No .. anyone burning anything inside? No .. Anyone burning anything outside with the windows open, like a BBQ perhaps? No ....I couldn't figure it out. All the properties in the complex had the same style and type of smoke alarms, and hers were the only ones doing this.

When I went in to do an end of lease inspection after they had moved out I found all these tiny little burn marks in the carpet in a corner of what was previously the daughters room (whilst it was occupied, her daughter used to cover them with a rug so that I wouldn't see them)... her fucken 16 year old daughter was burning incense sticks and that was what kept setting off the alarms. If it was within my powers to make her pay back all the call outs to electricians over her smoke alarms for the previous two years plus the cost of the replacement smoke alarms I would have done so.

I'm not even sure the mum was aware the daughter was burning the sticks when the alrms went off. More often than not, the Mum was at work all the time and used to get home to her kids complaining the smoke alarms had gone off again, which she'd then report to me. Mum probably figured the dughter was smart enough to link the two ... turned out she wasn't.
