The Degrees Symbol
I have now discovered how to type the symbol I was looking for.
Today in Sydney it is 21°.

See!
And I didn't have to copy and paste it.
Hold down the Alt key, and type 0176 with the right hand side number keys.

THat sounds kind of complicated to remember....but I'll try . I just tried and something weird happened. It didn't make the symbol---it took me back to my blog page. Hmmmmm....weird.

I was ready to make circle pictures :)!

Thank you sooooo much for visiting Jon's blog by the way. That was very kind of you!

Hmmm...I am on a laptop and there is not a right side number key pad. The only time I need that symbol is when I do cooking posts - and I have just learned to cut and paste from word. But...how did you find that shortcut??

Love the music - it's a Coldplay kinda day :-)
