press Enter.

You can move around in your respective players such as rewinding,
fastforwarding, and pausing in media player by pressing the alt key to
reveal the menu bar, use the right arrow to select the play menu then
press the down arrow to open the play menu, or press alt P to open the
play menu directly. The menu should display the various options and their

If you are using winamp, use the letter X to play, V to stop, hold down
left arrow and rewind and the righht to fast foraward and the letter C or
space bar to toggle pause and play. Please note, t you refer to your
manual for instructions. These are the commands for users of windows XP.

your manual.

Monday night's chat

Well the chat just ended with lots of laughter and discussion.

We talked about our New Year's resolutions for our crafting. We decided
that buying yarn without a project or plan, even if it is wonderful or a
good sale, is not real smart. But then we discussed just how much yarn to
buy when we come across those have to have sales. lol

We talked about finishing one project before starting another. But I
mentioned that i would like to have a couple things going, such as a dish
cloth that is easy to take and do and a larger project by my rocker.

We also talked about the sock class that Joyce plans on teaching in

I don't think we solved the yarn problems of the world. But all four of us
agree that our projects will continue during 2010.

~I wish you enough~
