  1. I don’t know how hard this is for you but I love it!

    1. Super easy. Copy and paste. I love that it's helpful!

  2. This is nice to have, as I frequently go back to past posts, and generally have to comb through subject lines in my inbox to do so!

    1. The search box above works pretty good. But also doing a regular Google search works remarkably well. If you can remember the topic or just a bit of the headline, type that in and then add the word "wild". It's how I sometimes have to find things.

      In general, adding "wild" to any Houdini search will bring you right to a relevant post here.

    2. Thanks - yes, I do use the search too, but the actual headline is helpful to see because it jogs my memory and helps me recall what it was I wanted to look at in a particular post (which at times is unrelated to the headline). All good!
