How to send a card with your email
1. Pick a card:
Click to view.
2. Copy the card's URL (the address beginning with "http" that you see in the address field at the top of the browser window.)
3. Paste the URL into the your email.(If you're new at this, there's more explanation below.)

Back up ^ to card menu

A URL is an address. If your computer sees an unbroken string of characters beginning
with "http://" and ending with ".swf," most email programs automatically underline that string
so you can click it and go somewhere on the Web. That makes it a link.
You can type whatever you want before and after the URL (link.)
What could possibly go wrong? Well......

Sometimes a URL is so long that by the time it gets to your friend in the email,
it has become to two lines with a line break. Computers hate that!
W here did that unbroken string starting with http://-ending-with.swf (or.html) go?

The computer is confused.
Administering chocolate doesn't help.
What can you do about it?

Trick thecomputer. Let your recipients know there's a fix.
Tell them to copy the WHOLE URL,
all the way from http to swf or html,
and then paste it into the address field of the web browser.

Still too web shy to try all that? You can also send your recipient to
and tell them to go to "cards to send," then to the name of the card you picked.

Where did that tune come from? Information about "Happy Birthday" vs "Good Morning to All"

The song, "Good Morning to All" appeared in the book, Song Stories for the Kindergarten,
pub. 1893. There is a lot of discussion on the web about the Public Domain status
of a 90% similar tune many know as "Happy Birthday." One piece of that discussion,
at, seems well stated to me
(definitely not a lawyer) by J Byron. The difference between the two tunes is
that pair of eighth notes (instead of one quarter note) every time the word "happy" occurs.
There are folks who maintain that that difference is enough to merit a 1935 copyright for
"Happy Birthday." Many disagree, but to be safe, I simply used the "Good Morning to All"
song instead. Plucky singers or players can figure it out.
