~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


Before performing a wedding, my father spent a few minutes explaining to a reluctant six-year-old ringbearer how important his job was - the wedding couldn't happen without him. All went well, despite a heavy snowstorm outside. But near the end of the ceremony the electricity went out. Everyone decided to continue in the dark.

Just as the groom was about to kiss the bride, the lights came back on. The ringbearer looked at his pillow, horrified. "All right," he yelled, "who stole the rings?"

My great-granddaughter Melissa, 6, was excited about being at her first wedding. When the pastor, the groom, and the best man took their places, she couldn't take her eyes off of them.

At the organ's cue, I directed her attention to the back of the church. Glancing at the front again and then at the bride, Melissa whispered, "Grandma, does she get to take her pick?"

After forty-six years of marriage, my husband and I still chuckle about our four-year-old ringbearer's next-day panic when he asked his mother if he had gotten married the day before.

"No," she reassured him.

My five-year-old grandnephew was obviously worried as he looked down the long aisle of the church where his aunt was to be married the following day. His grandmother had an idea. "I think I'll give a prize to the person who does the best job tomorrow," she told him.

We were all holding our breath the next day, but when it was time, the ringbearer performed without a hitch.

When his grandmother told him he had won the prize, he was both excited and relieved. "I was pretty sure I had it," he admitted, "until Aunt Dana came in wearing that white dress and the horn was blowing. Then I started thinking-she might win!"

A group of Americans made a trip with Brazilian natives down the Amazon River. The first day they rushed. The second day they rushed. The next day they rushed. One day, anxious to continue the trek, they were surprised to find the natives seated together in a circle.

When asked the reason for the delay, a guide answered: "They are waiting. They cannot move further until their souls have caught up with their bodies."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

COMPUTER TIP: What does Active Desktop do?

Basically, it allows you to have web-related content on your desktop. For example, if you like to use different types of background wallpaper you normally have to use a BMP file. With active desktop installed, you can use JPEGs too. It also lets you do some other cool things, like single-clicking of program icons, using HTML documents as wallpaper, and the kind stuff in today's Tip of the Day.

Start Button Program Arrangements

If you would like to change the order of the programs in your Programs (Start button, Programs) menu, you'll be glad to know it's easy as drag and drop. Here's how:

1. Click the Start button, Programs.

2. Once you're in the programs menu, click and hold the icon next to the item you would like to move.

3. While holding the mouse button down, move the item up or down the menu, you'll see a black line showing where you can drop the item as you move it.

If this doesn't work , you probably don't have active desktop installed.
