Yasss! It took an hour, but I finally figured out my “div” container wasn’t large enough… That meant my icons couldn’t spread out if they didn’t have room. Something so simple! Yet, it took an hour and a Google search before I realized my mistake. My #100DaysofCode is never dull! 

Denise Fox: EastEnders Missing Person

I miss EastEnders Denise Fox (Dianne Parish)! How can John Yorke and the writers let this brilliant actress sit on the sidelines? If it was Martin Fowler going through grief, Stacey Fowler would be by his side.
