> I really thought I did the double quote thing right, but didn't ... sorry. I kinda need to thing of it a QUAD quotes with my literal brain. Will remember in the future.
> P.S. I do realize that a single set of quotation marks isn't really used - little humor there !!

I know you were joking but it started me wondering whether everyone used the expression double quotes now, or if it was primarily a computer term. Programmers of course discovered early that many programs were too dumb to know the difference between quotation marks and the apostrophe (non double quote) and that the apostrophe could be typed more easily (no shift key). Is double double quotes as meaningful a sentence to everyone as it is to me?

>>Is double double quotes as meaningful a sentence to everyone as it is to me?>>>

Actually, yes it is. The problem I had was, I did it correctly - as it came up as link. The link was to the same title book but not to the one I was referring. I don't know why the concept is so difficult ??? The problem is if you try to talk about a book, it's preformance anxiety to try to manage to handle it correctly. I shall not be dismayed ... I guess !!!!

 

Yep :-) makes sense to me I now understand it LOL (nm) jane d

Let me test ... As in recommending:

"Awakening the Healing Energy of the Tao"

Dr. Bob -- you are doing such good here! Hope this works. Temmie

> "Awakening the Healing Energy of the Tao"

That's the right ide, but was that in fact the book you meant? There aren't any exact matches...

> Dr. Bob -- you are doing such good here!

Thanks for contributing!

Oopsie. Still need to do some fine-tuning here. Apparently this book is out of print? I will try to locate my copy to confirm title/author. It seems hard to believe this would be out-of-print already. I bought it in the 80's .... but then ... that was a long time ago! Thanks, Dr. Bob. I don't mean to gush, but this site was a terrific idea, serves a wide variety of needs/issues -- and I hope your colleagues know how appreciated you are (and how successful this place has been). When things calm down re. my own academic work, I'd like to do a little reading about your own.

Best, Temmie

Hey, Thanx for letting me know about the double double quotes, Dr. Bob

i think it's a GREAT idea. i hadn't the book itself handy and felt slightly negligent because i couldn't remember the author's names while suggesting/referring to it, incase anyone wanted to check it out. The link is a great idea.

Dr. Bob,
I figured I would get this message. I did use the feature before because I did not know how and didn't want to stop to figure it out. Now I do. Seems really easy.

Thanks, and thanks for this site!

Hey Dr. Bob, thanks for the heads up. I didn't use it because Dinah already linked the book in a previous post in the same thread.

Thank you!

Just following up on the double quotes suggestion. Yep, I'm a newbie and did not know about that feature. I'll try to remember it for future posts!

The book in question: "Dealing with Depression Naturally" is the best I've found thus far on alternative/complimentary meds specifically for depression, but that it mentions bipolar numerous times is incredible. Still it does not go into enough detail for me. Yet all other similar books I've looked at are even less inclusive and comprehensive, or like Balch's "Prespription for Nutritional Healing" present "misinformation" on certain conditions, bipolar in particular. Any suggestions for good books on nutrition and depression/bipolar that may be more comprehensive and reliable? Still searching, none found.

Thanks!

Hey Dr Bob, sorry just a case of not having read all the instructions. The double-double quotes is a great idea and I'll try it out next time. Thanks for the tip. BTW, this is the first time I've ever participated in a site like this and it's brilliant.

Boy, Dr. Bob, you're fast! I'd just posted this message:
http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/psycho/20050725/msgs/534012.html

and you were all over it! Funny, while I was writing it, I was wondered if you'd catch it! ; ) Anyway, my reason for not using the feature was just shear laziness. I knew there was a link out there somewhere, but didn't want to go look for it. Sorry!
