      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 remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                    FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                    Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                    I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
