    Im not very good with technical stuff BUT..the only way i do it is:-

    If you go to the post you want and click on the left hand side of the very first letter ..hold the left mouse button down and roll down the whole bit you want...it should go black..
    then hold ctrl button and press c... this will copy it all
    go into a word processing page.. ours is microsoft word..click on a new page and then when your cursor is on the page press ctrl and then v it sould paste all the writting on -then you can print it off
    hope that helps

    victory, the way I do it is to cut and paste the text I want to print into a word document and then print from word.

    I really hope they work for you:o Im really nervous now in case they dont:o

    I made them and they were scrummy:D

    Hi razra, no need to be nervous, although I had one of my off days :rotfl: It wasn't until I got down to adding the spices that I found out that I was out of ginger - so I doubled up on the mixed spice and missed out the cinnamon as mixed spice has both ginger and cinnamon in it. I think I was expecting the same texture as shop ginger nuts but once I got used to them (after trying with some left over butter cream from earlier butterfly cakes) they were okay.

    I also tried the choccie ones, maybe I should not have put so much cocoa in because I was using Green and Blacks which is quite strong - the little monkeys haven't tried them yet but I think they will say they are too strong for them.

    I really hope OH likes them otherwise I will be putting on a lot of weight this week :rotfl:

    Thanks for posting the recipe.

    Hi Guys!

    Hope everyone is having a good day! after the other day of making the mistake of taking the munchkins to asda and spending way more than I thought!!!!! you would have thought I would have learnt my lesson but oh no today I go to Mr A not only with the munchkins but dh too...... :eek: ! needless to say spent £43 - The idea was that I was encouraging the budget by getting DH to buy 6 bottles of wine for the month (Mr A does a 3 for £10) but kinda back fired. (hangs head in hands lol)

    Never mind will do better next week! ;) Am I the only one who can't seem to rein in the spending well? Does it get easier?

    Thanks for the recipes MRs M

    Our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.

    razra, guess what? The little monkeys like them, especially dipped in milk or with the remains of the butter cream.

    Thanks again, FFM :)
