I don't want dates or sizes, just the file names. How is that done? Kate Dear Kate There are two ways to do that. One is to go to the DOS command line and type a simple command, the other method is to get DirectoryListPrint from Switzerland, and learn to use that program. It is at List Print Personally, because I love the raw power of DOS, I use that. First go to the directory (folder) that you want listed. At the top. Look at the address at the top, right-click it and select Copy address as text Next hit START, type cmd and hit ENTER You'll get the scary old DOS window in black. If you don't like a black screen with light grey writing, change it! color 9e gives you bright yellow on blue background. color 9a gives you fluorescent green on blue. Just play with it till you find a combo that suits your mood. The number is for the background, the letter for the text color. Now go to the drive where those folders are. If they are on a CD, that would probably be drive D: So type D: and hit ENTER. The prompt instantly changes to show you are on D: Type CD and a space. Now you can either type the name of the folder you want, or paste it. Pasting is still the same as it was in the 80's. Microsoft has not updated that. Right-click on the top bar, type E or select EDIT, type P or select Paste. In DOS you can do everything without taking your hands off the keyboard and hunting for the mouse. OK, now the propmt reads, for example: D:>CD Music\gospel Hit Enter CD is for Change (to) Directory Note that on Windows the \ leans to the left, unlike the / right leaning slash of UNIX and Linux. Now the prompt reads D:\Music\gospel To get the listing of all the files in there, including all the subdirectories in that, type dir /s WOW! Exactly what you want is flashing by on the screen. All 2750 gospel songs, separated into each different category folder. You COULD mark and copy all that, but there is a much easier way. dir /s >c:\list1.txt instantly puts all that into a neat text file, easy to find in C:\, called list1.txt You can open that with any text editor or word processor or spreadsheet, pretty it up and format it to print any way you want, for example to fit into a CD case. If you type dir /? you will see all kinds of options for different formatting of the results. Try them out! dir /s is by no means the only suitable way to list the files. dir /b (bare) is also quite handy. If all that sounds too complicated, get that program from Switzerland, in English or German, and read their instructions. Then you can do it all by just mousing around. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Dried and Caramelized Onions By attosa [258 Posts, 586 Comments] When I find a great deal on onions, I buy a large amount and make these dried and caramelized onions. It ends up being a whole lot cheaper and more tasty than buying dried onions in bottles. You can make these in the oven, in a dehydrator, or even in the sun! To make onion powder, run the finished product in a processor. Prep Time: 2 to 4 hours Ingredients: onions oil for caramelized onions (1 tsp per onion) Steps: Cut onions into halves, then thinly slice with knife or mandolin. Spread a thin layer onto a rack. If you're using sunlight, you can have your onions ready in a few hours. If you're using your oven, set temperature to 200F for about 3 hours. To use your dehydrator, place sliced onions on dehydrator trays and set to 125F for about 4 hours. Rotate your trays half way for even drying. To make caramelized onions, coat the bottom of a pan with 1 tsp of oil to every sliced whole onion. Heat to medium, cooking until browned, stirring often. It's best not to crowd the pan as they will steam up and produce water. Instead of a Mandolin I use a Borner "V" cutter and make tiny cubes. Aside from being much safer, the little cubes practically disappear in gravies and sauces, just leaving the flavor behind. I also use a lot less oil. I use an ancient Amway window cleaner sprayer from the 80's, and just give the pan a light misting of oil and then another fast squirt onto the onions. That's enough, especially when filling my one gallon pickle jar with browned onion cubelets. I want them feeling dry, not oily. Have FUN! DearWebby
Mog's Christmas
____________________________________________________ A teacher asked her students to draw a picture of their favorite Old Testament story, and as she moved around the class, she saw there were many wonderful drawings being done. Then she came across Johnny who had drawn a man driving an old car. In the back seat were two passengers, both scantily dressed. "It's a lovely picture," said the teacher, "but which story does it tell?" Johnny seemed surprised at the question. "Well," he exclaimed, "it says in the BIBLE that God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury?" Then he added proudly, "And THAT is the Plymouth Fury! Uncle Bubba has it on blocks in front of his trailer!" ____________________________________________________

>From Mimi When my granddaughter, Marissa, was 4 yrs. old, we were waiting in the car at the school to pick up her brother, Michael, and her cousin, Mark. Marissa was sitting in the back seat of the car, eating gummy bears candies and said to me, "Mimi, guess what color I am eating now. Of course, I was looking in the rear view mirror and told her each and every color she was eating. Marissa was so surprised and she said, "How do you know what color the candy is?" I told her that I was a psychic. Two days later, while in the middle of driving, she again asked me what color candy she was eating. This time I couldn't keep on looking in the mirror, so I just guessed any color. Marissa then said, "Oh, Mimi, I guess you're not a psycho anymore."
