I found a workaround to the spell check issue with the fancy, new text entry boxes. (Chrome and Firefox won't spell check the text.) If I click on "source", the browsers suddenly remember how to do the squiggly red underline thing.

can it be called a successful 6 mile bike ride when i got 1.75 liters of whiskey and 3 oversized cookies enroute? to be fair two of those cookies were free. to be less generous i got them to open the door to the bakery with some minor beseeching after they had closed. but again, to be fair, they were closing up 20 minutes early. the only two things i really regret -- the quality of the whiskey and not tipping the cookiegivers better. i think we can easily deduce the square root of that equation. and, no, i was not good at math.
