~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult."- Seneca

Back then, in 1935, Dad's preaching took him away from home a lot. Mother tried to make up for his absences, particulary at night, when she comforted us with a bedtime ritual. First, my six-year-old sister, Alice, my 12-year-old brother, Bill, and I knelt together to say our prayers. After Mother tucked Bill in bed, she crossed the hall to do the same for Alice and me. Then it was story time. Mother sat in a chair in the hallway so we could all hear her read. The melody of her voice and the soothing cadences of her speech warmed me like a thick blanket on a cold night. When she switched off the lights and closed our doors, she always whispered her final blessing, "Angels watch over you."

For a while my husband and I had opposite schedules. He worked during the day, and I worked at night. One morning I noticed he had left a note to himself on the kitchen counter that read, "STAMPS!" As a helpful surprise, I bought him some at the post office and put them on the counter before going to work.

The next morning I found the same note. "STAMPS!" was crossed out. Underneath it he had written,

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:


Have too many icons on your desktop? You probably only have a few that you really use on a regular basis, so why not keep the other ones handy, but hidden.

Well, it can be done by putting a little folder on your desktop and dragging any infrequently used shortcut icons to it. Here's how:

1. Right-click the desktop and select, New, Folder.

2. Name the new folder "Shortcuts"

3. Now, drag any icons that aren't being used on a regular basis to the folder. Some of the icons can't live anywhere but the desktop, so you'll find you can't move them. Most of them will make the transition with no complaints though.

That's it. Just open the folder when you need access to those shortcuts.

How about that? A much cleaner desktop :-)
