    Hey Rikki, I love your articles and look forward to this one every week. Is there any way you can create your links to open in a new window? Every time I click on a link to read an article, I forget to click on back and close the window instead. Then I have to open your article up again and find where I left off. Just an idea! Keep up the good work.

      If you do a “middle-click” instead of a left click on the link it should open in a new tab.

        If you right click you can then select “open in a new window” or “open in a new tab.”
