How to enlarge printing on articles you read

ron thomas

So, the old eyes ain't what they used to be Bucky? You can enlarge or make smaller the print on your computer screen by using two keys on your keyboard (the thingy mit the letters and numbers on it). Here's how....

On your keyboard look for the CTRL (Control key)... It is on the lower left corner of the keyboard... Now find the key with the symbols (=) on the bottom and (+) on the top.... Right next door to this key is one with the two symbols: minus (-) on the bottom and dash on the top ( _ ).... Got em? Look for them until you know right where they are before the next step.

Want larger print? Hold down and don't release the Ctrl (Control key)... Then with your right finger, press and release the plus- equal (+ =) key. Take your fingers off the keyboard...

You saw the size increase? (you answer yes here). You can make the size increase as much as you need by doing CTRL (+) over and over until it is just right. Whoa! It's way to big? Easy, hold down the CTRL key and tap the (- _) key to take it down to the size you like.

Questions? email me..

A favorite story about Gandhi....

I’ll close with a metaphor attributed to Gandhi that illustrates the difference between posture and performance.

Imagine the scene in some remote village in India. Gandhi is in a small hut with a single table and the village people are lining up in the square to have a moment with him to tap into his wisdom and to make some sense of the challenges they face.

Eventually, a mother and son made their way to his table and the mother pleaded with Gandhi, “Can you please stop my son from eating sugar. It is affecting his health and I am worried.”

Gandhi got up from his chair and thought for a moment. He then said to the mother, “Come back with your boy to see me in two weeks.” The woman agreed and then she and her son left the room.

Two weeks later the woman returned with her son. Gandhi then spoke with the boy and the boy agreed. The mother, confused, asked Gandhi, “Why did you make me and my son wait to hear something you could have said two weeks ago?”

Gandhi then said, “You don’t understand. Two weeks ago, I too was eating sugar.”
