emoticon for the chair dancing links! Found a great beginner chair aerobics video, too! Watched Dirty Dancing on Family Channel just now, moved the furniture, and DANCED with no ne watching but my CATS, at each song in the whole movie! Loving adding dancing to my repertoire of activities! Happy Memorial Day, all! emoticon emoticon

Jesus take my life and lead me on.

Have fun and no regrets. Make memories and love without fear. Enjoy life because in the end, the journey is the destination.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Hi Sunny,
thanks for letting me know that the links weren't working (and a reminder that I should have checked it.).

I of course could get to them but I guess the https with the security thing must somehow block it for others? Although that's strange, because where YouTube has their "Share" to Facebook, Twitter etc, it generates a link with http: instead of http: - so all I did was delete it, but I also added the link to the same videos from the top URL line, rather than the link under "Share". And from here, I could open up both videos, both ways (four working links, two links worked for each of the two videos.).

I think other times the links won't work because a person might be in Australia or UK etc and the link won't work in their country - they have to go back into YouTube from their browser and country's internet provider and search for the same title and poster's channel name etc.

Hope it works now for you??

Julia

PBS has a program that is called Sit and Fit that does the same thing.

Julia, the first two links in your post are broken for some reason.

I was able to access the website, Paul Eugene.

Take care and enjoy your Friday. It's time to Foxtrot Friday. emoticon

"Chair dancing famous dances"
willnotbeignored1's channel

youtu.be/TOrfPlH5nCk
www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOrfP
lH5nCk


also "Chair Dancing® Fitness by Jodi Stolove"
youtu.be/mOS1DdE6DfE (the custom share link that YouTube creates for me, but maybe it doesn't work outside USA? Here's the link at the top of the page: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOS1D
dE6DfE



both of these appear to be more like commercials for the original vhs/dvd (look like they were made in the 80's??).

Here's some more from Paul Eugene www.chairfitnessworkouts.com with sample workouts that are longer - "Latin Chair Salsa" - it's not captioned so I have absolutely no idea what he is saying, but looks to be about 14 minutes and the notation says you can pay for and download the full workout from his website above (the ChairfitnessWorkout one above):
youtu.be/YI1CR6cmPe0

Actually he has a channel you can subscribe to and there are bunches of 6-8-10 minute chair dance videos he does. It looks easy enough to follow but it's not captioned.

Hope that helps?

(Add A Link) - -

You realize there is a "Add A Link" up here ^ ^ ^ ^ - the second one in from the farthest right ^^^ between "Spell Check" and "Add An Emoticon" - you click it, and it will open up a popup box. Just paste in the link you want to use, and hit "Add Link" and then it comes back in here to the message.

If you are trying to add a link from within your phone or tablet, or if you have your browser set to "pop-ups disabled" then you will need to add the HTML link before and after the link. I'm not sure that SparkPeople will let me type in the actual codes because it will assume I'm trying to add a link and will think I'm not doing it right. But I will try.

You know what a left bracket and right bracket is ? You will need to enter those in (should be able to find them on your keyboard.). They are like parentheses () but with pointed angles in the middle. I can't enter it here because SP thinks its HTML code

Left Bracket and then the word link and then right bracket, followed immediately with the entire link, no spaces, and then immediately after that left bracket, then backslash / then right bracket (to indicate end of link).

LBlinkRBThe.Website.ComLB/linkRB (the format you'd use if you could type in the actual symbol)

expanded, so you can get a better idea of what needs to take place -
LB Link RB URL.ADDRESS.COM (ie www.sparkpeople.com) LB FS Link RB - all of these elements in this order, BUT - NO Spaces between any of the elements. (I know it doesn't make much sense here, but that's the limitation of this message editor, with their link generator.).

If I use the actual symbols, I get the error message...

"No html Please!

Please press the back button on your browser to re-enter the information. Or click here to go back."

Grrr no matter what I try, I get the error messages. I think I can do it in private messages though, so if the "Add a link" generator doesn't work on your browser, then I can try to explain it some other way.

Okay, so I tried to enter this using the initials LB to represent the actual symbol for "Left Bracket", since I can't use the actual symbol, and of course RB for RB. the way it's supposed to be, and the FS for Forward Slash /

And that seems to work...
But if this doesn't make sense, ask me and I'll see if I can explain it in private message - I think the comments section of one's personal SparkPage and the space for SparkGoodies neither one have a "Add A Link" so when I've entered URL addresses, I've had to type in the link myself... We'll figure out something!!

(edited - I'm guessing the httpS makes the link not as visible for some, since it's the secure channel for when I'm logged into YouTube. So I'm going to try removing the S and see if that makes a difference.).
