      HELP! But in English ,Not Italiono Or SPANISH OKAY L.O.L. I think.

      I feel better talking to my dog for 10 minutes ,than my therapist for 45minutes and neither was any help with this! I'm about ready to remove that key and solve the problem ,once and for all ,it's either that or my finger ,Hmmm mm
      I probabaly will want to use the finger again for something so I guess its the KEY that looses ,if we can't get a simple fix .

        Try doing your typing using a word processor then transfer it to the web page.

          Hi Carl - As a master of typos I certainly feel your pain!

          I use Stephen's technique except that I usually write long winded posts - of which I'm a bit of an expert, LOL! - in a text file created on my desktop - right button click > New > Text Document - and then copy and paste that into the reply box, fixing any spelling errors that show up.

          I always go into advanced reply and do a preview to see if there are any spacing errors

          If you want to spend a few bucks you could look around for an alternative keyboard, wireless or otherwise, that feels more to your liking. Personally I don't like Dell keyboards in general, they always seem a little to flat to me but then I have fingers like a gorilla!

          Hope this is of a little more help than my previous comment - hehehe!

                Hey Frieke - I should have made it really clear that the procedure is

                ....desktop - right button click > New > Text Document - and then WRITE YOUR POST OR REPLY INFO INTO THE NEW TEXT DOCUMENT then copy and paste that into the reply box - LOL!

                  You were right,AGAIN DAMIT

                  Jim, at our 35th aniversery get together ,I was ask the longevity secret,which I replied ignorance ,my wife thought I said ignorant ,and I recieved a jab in the ribs,so I explained ,no one is perfect except me LOL and we all have and do things we can't or won't change for a reason known only to ourselves ,So If , its non-earth crashing and just annoying ,ignore it ,other positives far outweigh those any way,and only cause problems you can't explain and mess up your head. Plus ,life is to short to try hide my abundance of things I'm ignorant about ,plus memory and truth are cousins not twins ,and memory is the second thing to go ,I can't remember the first.But thanks to your memory I can just hit the repeat button on my next question.lol thanks guys I will try your tip I really appreciate your help,I did this the old way but warned my finger not to help!M.V.B.

                    I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                    If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                    The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                    I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
