interesting phenomenon: when you link to a "searched" post Can't Post

Just for interest, in case it happens to anyone else (it may have, and I am just unobservant!!): I was looking for a previous post of my own and used the search function (and let me interject how grateful I am that we HAVE a search function that actually works!! go Torn PTB!!) and found it.

Then I copied the URL for that post to my reply in the RR, as in "please see this old post of mine". If you click on that link, you go to the correct old post, but it is now highlighted with my search terms.

Cool

I don't think anyone minds, but it's just an interesting thing! You could, I suppose, deduce my thinking process for search boxes from the highlighted terms, which is sort of odd. Blush

"an seileachan"

Some say once you're gone, you're gone forever, and some say you're gonna come back.
Some say you'll rest in the arms of the Savior, if sinful ways you lack.
Some say that they're coming back in a garden: bunch of carrots and little sweet peas.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.
