MT tags and Dr Pepper

Following a link from Sean Bonnerís recently created bookmarks, I found myself at Cruft. Love that title. Itís an MT powered blog.

One thing I noticed after reading the posts on the main page, in addition to being interesting and well-written, is the copyright at the bottom of the page. It says, ď© 1996-2003 Michael Pusateri - Be As You Are.Ē Love that too, except itís 2004 already. Then, it occurred to me that a lot of people (not that a lot of people will ever read this) might not be aware that you can use MTís date tags to keep your copyright notice current. In my case, I use the following:

© L.M. Carnes 2001-<MTDate format="%Y">

which translates as:

© L.M. Carnes 2001-2004

That tag will change the second year every year and should work for both MT 2.x and 3.x.

Aside from all that, and what I really wanted to point out, Cruft has a fascinating and comprehensive list with photos of his collection of Dr. Pepper imposters.

That reminded me, when I was a kid, we played a lot of cards in our house. Poker, actually. And, we always played dealerís choice. When it was my turn to deal, I often made it a game called ďTens, Twos, and FoursĒ named after the numbers made famous on the Dr. Pepper bottle. Itís probably obvious to everyone, but just in case, the 10's, 2's and 4's were wild. Itís a fun poker game for kids. That, and Hiawatha. I wonder if people even play poker with their kids any more. I didn't teach my kids how.

Actually, where I grew up, we called that "Dr. Pepper poker". Odd what different parts of the nation call things.
