"It is a mistake to look too far ahead. One link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time." - Winston Churchill

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
WAITING FOR THE RAINBOW
By Becky Hutzel
When the sun has hidden it's shining face
And storm clouds rise to take it's place
The winds explode in rushing gusts
In God I put my hope and trust
When darkness shrouds the rocky plain
And all I feel is fear and pain
When trials like fire come roaring through
The days that once had brilliant hue
When sorrow floods my weary soul
Drowning joy, once filling me full
I run to the Rock that is higher than I
To wait for the rainbow in the sky.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
A SUMMARY OF THE WORLD FACTS
If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people.......with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:
There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere (North and South) and 8 Africans.
51 would be female; 49 male
70 would be nonwhite; 30 white.
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
50% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people, and all 6 would be citizens of the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing.
70 unable to read.
50 would suffer from malnutrition.
1 would be near death, 1 would be near birth
Only 1 would have a college education.
No one would own a computer !!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A six-year-old ran up and down the supermarket aisles shouting frantically, "Marian, Marian!"
Finally reunited with his mother, he was chided by her, "You shouldn't call me 'Marian.' I'm your mother, you know."
"I know," said the child, "but the store is full of mothers."

Q: I was messing with my computer the other day and was able to get four windows on my screen all at once, each taking up 1/4 of the monitor. I can't remember how I did it. Any idea?
A: To get your windows to "tile" like that, right-click the taskbar (in the area where your active programs sit) and select either Tile Windows Horizontally or Tile Windows Vertically from the resulting menu. If you don't like the effect, hitting CTRL-Z right after you do it will undo it.
This is a really handy way to work with multiple windows. There is something you need to look out for though. When you tile your windows, you sometimes end up with windows smaller than you may like.
Most programs remember what size they were the last time they were closed, so if you close one of these windows while it's small, it may come up that same small size the next time you run the program. Just re-size the window when close it to avoid this problem.
