I have two SharePoint lists. 1) Posts and 2) Categories

The Posts list has a lookup field called 'Category' into the Categories list.

I am trying to use the $expand option to join the two lists but I'm unsuccessful.  I'm trying to follow the example used in this site but I'm confused.

Any ideas?

I've tried the following and many other combinations but I get errors

Here's where you can look at my lists
