Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says . . . I'll try again tomorrow. - Author Unknown

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A couple was driving through North Carolina. The husband saw an old man sitting in a chair in his garden. He was hoeing. The husband turned to his wife and said, "Now that's the height of laziness!"
Suddenly he developed a lump in his throat as he spotted a pair of crutches lying on the ground next to the old man's chair.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The restaurant where I took my two sons for a meal was crowded with fans watching a sporting event on television. The harried waitress took our order, but more than half an hour passed with no sign of her return.
I was trying to keep my kids from becoming restless when suddenly shouts of victory came from the sports room. "Hey," commented my 11-year-old, "it sounds as if someone just got his food."

COPYING A CD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE
Do you have a program that runs from a CD? My daughter has loads of them. Every time she wants to play a game we have to play "Find where I put the CD" first. Well, there's a better way.
If you have the space on your hard drive (most newer computers do) make a folder on your C: drive and copy the contents of the CD ROM to it. Then install the program from there.
By installing like this, the program will look to your folder rather than the CD ROM drive for the files it needs. The game usually runs faster and you never have to worry about hunting down the CD ROM.
Here's how to set it up:
1. CREATE FOLDER - First, you'll need to create a folder on your hard drive for the program. Right-click "My Computer" and select Explore from the resulting menu. Click the C: drive in Explorer's left hand window. In Explorer's right hand window Right-click a blank area and select New, then Folder from the resulting menu. Give the folder an appropriate name such as the name of the CD to be copied.
2. SET "SHOW ALL FILES" - Next you need to be sure your computer is set to view all files (in case there are hidden files on the CD). In Explorer, click the drop down "View" menu at the top of the window. Click on "Folder Options." In this new window, Click the "View" tab. Make sure the "radio button" in front of "Show All Files" is selected. Hit OK.
3. COPY CD - Now, stick your CD into the CD ROM drive (hold the shift key down while you do it to prevent it from auto-running). Click the CD ROM drive in Explorer and press CTRL-A to select everything on the disk. Right-click the highlighted files and select Copy. Then open the folder you just made on your C: drive and select Paste.
4. RUN SETUP - After it's finished copying, go to the folder and run the setup program as usual.
