In an effort to recede the painful reality encountered in WWII, the FIfties looked for a status quo promulgated widely through television to restore what was thought to be American values.

Update: I’m trying out Smart Slider 3 and removed the MetaSlider. Here I had used the shortcode block and pasted in the slider id. The slider doesn’t display in the back end, but at least it’s less messy. Just using a paragraph block that’s not in a container means I can’t add in margin-top or padding-top?

After World War II ended, many Americans were eager to have children because they were confident that the future promised peace and prosperity. In many ways, they were right. Between 1945 and 1960, the gross national product more than doubled, growing from $200 billion to more than $500 billion, kicking off “the Golden Age of American Capitalism.”

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

Much of this increase came from government spending: The construction of interstate highways and schools, the distribution of veterans’ benefits and most of all the increase in military spending–on goods like airplanes and new technologies like computers–all contributed to the decade’s economic growth.

THIS IS THE QUOTE BLOCK. APPARENTLY NO CONTROL ON THE SIZE–MAYBE IF YOU PUT IT IN A CONTAINER. **Compare with the manually created pullquote fx using containers with a red 3px red border line on the left side.

The baby boom and the suburban boom went hand in hand. Almost as soon as World War II ended, developers such as William Levitt (whose “Levittowns” in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania would become the most famous symbols of suburban life in the 1950s) began to buy land on the outskirts of cities and use mass production techniques to build modest, inexpensive tract houses there.

In this ex the outer container has the 3px border and then padding on right. Done this way I can have paragraphs which weren’t possible before. (Revise the pullquotes on the FO1800 site?)

Inner container here has left padding of 25px. Background color added, but what about applying bg color to the entire container–maybe a black or dark gray box with a white border?

Would want to add padding at the bottom-most paragraph and on the top paragraph, but how? ANSWER: APPLY PADDING TO THE OUTERMOST (PARENT) CONTAINER, NOT THE INNER CONTAINER THAT HOLDS THE LOREM IPSUM BLOCK.

?? What about doing a pullquote block using flex?

?? WHAT’S THE BEST APPROACH FOR 2 COLS? WHEN TO USE GRID BLOCK VS JUST A CONTAINER USING FLEX? DO INLINE BLOCKS HAVE A USED HERE? Sget velit aliquet sagittis. Bibendum arcu vitae elementum curabitur vitae nunc sed velit dignissim. Nibh venenatis cras sed felis eget velit aliquet.


**Compare with a FLEX version below. What if I used the GROUP thing? Major Bummer is a humorous comic book produced by DC Comics in the late 1990s. It was created by writer John Arcudi and artist Doug Mahnke. For the series’s brief run, the main character was 19-year-old Lou Martin, who Arcudi described as “smart enough that he might be able to cure cancer if he applied himself, but he’d rather use his brain to try and steal cable”.

Major Bummer was cancelled after issue #15 – “Sales were bad and there was just no way to keep this book going”, wrote editor Peter Tomasi in the letter pages of the last issue.

Non Quam Lacus Suspendisse Faucibus

Didn’t use the GRID block, but created one container assigned to FLEX with a ROW GAP 20, and then each of the 2 child containers was 50%

What if the image on the left container were a bg image and then I could make that column be the same height as this right col? Of course the image might distort, but could scale it… fermentum odio eu feugiat pretium nibh ipsum. Tellus rutrum tellus pellentesque eu. Pellentesque sit amet porttitor eget dolor morbi.
