How to "align" a text of a custom column?

I have one text custom column (series) after the titles on the main menu but due to space limitations the text often ends with (...). However on a particular entry the text is between two lines, like this: (example only) ABC ABC [1] This way i can see the full text, even the series number, within a quite smaller space. I don't have any clue how i have done this, and i have tried elsewhere but nothing happens. This is great option that i would like to apply to all other entries. I actually...

more baby chick pictures

I bought a batch of 15 mixed layers from McMurray. They say they are a mix of at least 5 good laying types plus one exotic layer.

If anyone can tell the breed from looking at a chick and you recognize any of these - let me know!! They are two days old now and are being very good. There was one chick who kept pecking other chicks' eyes yesterday. (She the black blur in ...

As you can see I've grown into a deeper love of textiles and methods of bringing to life what I see in my head. My passion for a "silly band" really brought out some great stuff. I'd just gotten started with machine embroidery and digitizing, then spent a little bit of time last year following the band around on tour. Already invested in making patches, the "tour patches" started then as well. Today, I make all kinds of designs in patch form and direct to garment embroidery, sometimes custom w...
