How do you find lost shortcut icons? 

Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, May 19.
Thanks, Alfred!

Tomorrow we have a stat holiday in Canada. The Monday
closest to my birthday is celebrated with a day off for
cleaning and starting the BBQ after it was allowed to get
dusty and rusty all winter, an increase in gas prices to
coincide with the start of towing boats around, and frantic
shopping for larger size swimwear. Apparently that stuff
shrinks when not worn at least once a week.

It is also the official birthday of the Queen, but few people 
remember that she celebrates her birthday on the Monday 
closest to my birthday.

Have FUN!

One night at the dinner table, the wife commented, "When we were first married, you took the small piece of steak and gave me the larger. Now you take the large one and leave me the smaller; You don't love me any more..." "Nonsense, darling," replied the husband, "you just cook better now."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stephanie Redus, 29, Huffman, TX Pregnant Woman Puts Toddler Son Up For Adoption On Craigslist Reported by The Weekly vice Stephanie Redus, a 29-year-old Huffman woman, has been jailed after she allegedly posted an ad on Craigslist seeking a person who could adopt her toddler son. According to Houston Police, Redus posted the ad on May 1st, stating that she couldn't properly care for her son and was "desperate" to find someone who could. The message Redus posted is as follows: "Hi, I am trying to adopt out my three-year-old son. I'm not in a good place in my life and I don't feel like I can care for him properly, but I don't know where to start. If you or know anyone who is interested in caring for him please let me know. I'm a single mom and can't do this. Thanks, Desperate." An officer found the posted ad and instead of advising her to start with a visit to Social Services, responded to it posing as an interested party. Redus reportedly wrote back and explained that she was looking for someone to adopt her child because she is currently pregnant and unable to take medication that treats her depression and anxiety. Investigators obtained a subpeona for the website and identified Redus as the person who posted the ad. During a police interview, Redus admitted to placing the ad but stated that she never intended to go through with it. She claimed to have spoken with one other interested party. During the conversation she asked the respondent if he/she had any other children and requested that they send her pictures of their home. Redus was booked into jail and charged with misdemeanor advertising for placement of a child. She was freed after posting $1,000 bail. The child was taken into protective custody and then placed with his father. Do-It-Yourself adoption behind the back of Social Services is strictly against the law. Going through them apparently is quick and easy, because they have huge waiting lists of people, who are checked out and eligible to adopt kids. Tech Support Pits From: Edana Re: How do you find lost icons? Dear Webby I was intrigued by your seemingly hateful comments about the Windows Magnifier, and thought, 'Ol DerWebby is just miffed about Microsoft murdering XP, just so that they can sell 4 and 8 GB computers'. So I tried it, since I have less than a hundred icons on my desktop anyway. Well, slap me with wet noodles and bean me with a chamber pot! You were way too diplomatic about that @#$%^&*@#$%!!!!! I have eventually found most icons again and drug them to where they are supposed to be, but some of them seem to be totally missing. Is there a way to make them light up or show targets like the cursor does, when you hit CTRL? When I try making a new shortcut with the same name, it says there is already one with that name. But it does not tell me where! How do I find the lost shortcut icons? And DON'T tell me to sort them alphabetically and trash by careful thematic order! Edana Dear Edana You can't. The lost icons may be outside the visible margin, or there might be some other malfunction going on. Just make a new shortcut and giveit a slightly different name, IF the original shows up again in a year or whenever, then you can dump the second one. You can also make new, high visibility icons. There are lots of free utilities available for making icons. The trick is to NOT get cutesy or artistic, but shoot for maximum visibility. Assign a color for each major theme, then use tha color as the background, and use a letter in a contrasting color on that background. You don't have to stick to prime colors, as long as what you use is contrasting. If you need a program to make icons, write me and I'll send you the one, that I have been using for about 20 years. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Using a Peeling George Foreman Grill I really enjoy my little George Foreman grill, but the Teflon is peeling. I use a piece of lightweight tin foil, big enough to fold over the meat and spray it lightly with oil. Clean-up is a breeze, I just toss the foil afterward.

For a holiday, an Irishman decided to go to Switzerland to fulfill a lifelong dream and climb the Matterhorn. He hired a guide and just as they neared the top, the men were caught in a snow slide. Three hours later, a Saint Bernard ploughed through to them, a keg of brandy tied under his chin. "Hooray!" shouted the guide. "Here comes man's best friend!" "Aye," said the Irishman. "An' look at the size of the dog that's bringin' it!"

A customer was continually bothering the waiter in a restaurant; first, he'd asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down because he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour. Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient, he nodded and walked back and forth and never once got angry. So finally, a second customer asked him why he didn't throw the pest out. "Oh I don't care," the waiter said with a smile. "We don't have an air conditioner anyway."
