How to change icon size in Windows 7? 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, August 16

All the lawns for three blocks in all directions were 
speckled with leaves torn off trees by yesterday's hail.

 On my walk I realized that Thursday is bulk garbage pick-up.
People had all kinds of stuff piled by the street, anything 
from clock radios to king size mattresses. 

So I called Curt, a neighbor of Barb's, to give me a hand
lugging a bunch of old chainlink fencing to the street. 
Afterward I drove to the liquor stroe to get him a six-pack
for his help. 

On the way back we spotted a BBQ on the street,
in much better shape than my old one. It was too big to 
go into the small trunk on the LeBaron, so Curt sat in the
trunk and held the handles of the BBQ, while I slowly drove
home. We must have looked quite silly, but it worked out
just fine. Now I just have to save up $35 for a new propane
tank, or about the same for fittings to adapt it to natural 

 Have FUN!

A knight and his men return to their castle after a long hard day of fighting. "How are we faring?" asks the king. "Sire," replies the knight, "I have been robbing and pillaging on your behalf all day, burning the towns of your enemies in the west." "What?!" shrieks the king. "I don't have any enemies to the west!" "Oh, no..." says the knight. "Well, you do now."

The alleged sexual encounters took place on August 13 and 14. Police launched an investigation Tuesday night after the mother of a victim heard about the incident from another victim's sister. Walters-Merrian was booked into jail and charged with three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Tech Support Pits: From: Bob Re: Change icon size in Windows 7 Dear Webby, After one of those nuisance W7 bug fixes, that required a reboot, the size of my icons suddenly jumped to a much larger size, and there is no way to change the back. I am using the same 1600 x 1200 resolution as you are. Thanks for talking me into that 15 years ago! So, how do I civilize the icons? Bob Dear Bob It's a secret. Have you ever seen this cute little picture, that I painted many years ago? That secret trick works not just for browser zoom, but if you click onto an empty spot on the desktop first, it zooms the icons larger or smaller, depending on which way you crank the mouse scroll wheel. Feel fre to tell people where they can look up tricks like that. I need more subscribers! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from tore Touch-up Paint in Film Canisters Save film canisters and use them to store small amounts of leftover paint for touch-ups. Label each one and store in a handy place. Instead of a label, you can also just paint a part of the film canister lid with the paint for quick reference. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO Film containers are probably impossible to find nowadays, however pill ontainers come in many sizes and are just as handy for paint and small screws and springs. For paint store them upside down to ensure an airtight seal. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

>From Sue-Ann "That was nice of you to set up a blind date for your ex- boyfriend." "I know, but I don't hold any grudges." "I'm surprised he trusted you enough to agree to go out with her." "Well, I had to swear to him she's Jennifer Lopez's double." "Wow! Is that true?" "I wouldn't lie. She's twice her weight and twice her age."

The husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a tirade listing every problem they have ever had in the 15 years they've been married. She goes on and on and on. Finally, the counselor gets up, goes around the desk, embraces the woman and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says "That is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do that?" The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "Well, I can get her here Monday and Wednesday, but Friday I golf. "
