Restore lost icons on Windows 7 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, November 9
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

The news are warning about "Deadly Snow Storms across
the prairies" snd 18 more inches of snow tomorrow. I have a
doctor's sppointment tomorrow mid day. Instead of laying 
rubber out of the garage and hitting the snow drifts at full
speed in reverse, and sorta aiming for the road, I am going 
to walk. Actually, I am looking forward to the walk. Going
there will be -12, Wind N @ 15, headwind, but coming home, 
with the wind at my back, -12 won't be bad at all.

Have FUN!

An American was golfing at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. He slices his opening drive out of bounds onto the beach, so he tees another one up and smacks it right down the middle. The golfer turns to his old Scottish caddy and tells him that in America that is called a "Mulligan" and asks him if there is a name for it in Scotland. The caddy replies, "AYE, we call it a three."
>From Joy Dear Webby, Here is an oldie but a goodie for this cold and snowy time of year! Thanks for your humor letter each day. I also enjoy the bonus links, tech support, and pictures. Joy A teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students put his boots on. He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didn't want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong feet." She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off then it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on - this time on the right feet. He then announced, "These aren't my boots." She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, "Why didn't you say so?" like she wanted to. Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off. He then said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear them." She didn't know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again. Then she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?" He said, "I stuffed them in the toes of my boots..."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Taquita Lashay Watson, 29, Pensacola Caregiver Assaulted Bedridden 106-Year-Old Woman With A "Sexual Instrument" Reported by the Smoking Gun A female caregiver was arrested today and charged with sexually assaulting a 106-year-old woman in her care, according to cops. Taquita Lashay Watson, 29, had been providing in-home care to the bedridden victim, according to the Pensacola Police Department. Investigators determined that Watson last month had "used a sexual instrument" on the elderly woman. Watson, pictured in the mug shot, was charged with sexual assault and booked into the Escambia County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. A police report lists her employer as Interim HealthCare in Pensacola. According to a police statement, the investigation of Watson, who has worked as a caretaker for the elderly for eight years, is continuing "to determine if anyone else may have been victimized." A police report provides disturbing details of the October 26 assault of the woman, who cops described as having "no known mental health issues" and whose "mental capacity appeared to be fine." The victim told police that Watson, whom she knew as "Q", assaulted her with a six-inch "peter", that she removed from her purse along with a jar of Vaseline. The woman told police that Watson "pulled her pants and diaper down and told her that this 'would make her feel good.'" As Watson allegedly tried to assault her with the sex toy, the victim said she screamed at the caregiver to stop. Watson replied that, "all the old people like it and it makes them feel good," according to the woman's account to police. The victim said that when she started to bleed from her vagina, Watson cursed at her and said she would "get it in next time" before warning that, "if you tell anyone, I will hurt you." The victim was subsequently given a sexual assault examination which revealed "obvious signs of trauma" to her vagina, cops reported.
Tech Support Pits From: Erin Re: Lost icons on Windows 7 Dear Webby, My Windows 7 desktop keeps losing icons, not just shuffling them around. Even "Save My Desktop" is no help. What can I do to keep my icons and keep them in place? Erin Dear Erin Upgrade to XP. Yes, I know, that is probably not possible for you, but that seems to be the only way to avoid that bug in Windows 7. Some moron at Microsoft decided that since the concept of W7 was to be more blonde than VISTA, and to add cutesy gimmicks without thinking them through, they somehow rigged it so that momentarily not acessible icons get dumped. If you use an external drive and have some icons pointing to programs or folders on that drive, if a momentary power failure interrupts that drive, or if you unplug it for a moment to re-route the cables, W7 steals the icons and data for items on that drive and permanently deletes them. SMD and similar programs are powerless against such gross stupidity. They can only log the position and the names and icon files, but when W7 steals and deletes those, all that placement info is useless. Eventually somebody will write a utility to help you cope with that Windows 7 bug, or should I say concept malfunction? Desktop Restore from MidiOx helps restore icons, that Windows 7 lost during resizing or sorting, but so far nothing restores icons, that Windows deletes because of a temporarily unplugged drive. With Desktop Restore, make sure you do not have "Align Icons to Grid" checked. That function is bad news. When you download the program, use the 64 bit version for W7. If you lose this link, I have had Deasktop Restore in the Tool Box for many years. Have FUN! DearWebby

I came in to work early the other day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my co-workers came in and asked me what I'm doing. "Shh," I said, " I'm a light bulb -- I'm acting crazy to get a few days off, as there is an out of town wedding I need to go to until Tuesday. ." A minute later the Boss walked by and asked me what I was doing. "I'm a light bulb!" I exclaimed. "You're going crazy," he said. "Take a few days off, and come back when you are de-stressed” With that, I jumped down and started walking out. My co-worker started following me and the Boss asked where she was going. I can't work in the dark," she said.

When our dryer broke, my husband set to work. He found the problem quickly and, since he needed to replace the belt, decided to repair a cracked knob and a broken hinge too. Upon arrival at the Sears parts counter, he said he needed a belt, knob, hinge, and a crescent-shaped wire he'd found inside the dryer. He didn't know where it belonged, but he confidently assured the clerk that he could figure it out once he got into the job. "I have the other parts," the clerk said, "but for the wire you have to go to Lingerie. This is an underwire from your wife's bra."
