A few years ago, I was sitting in church flipping the pages of my Bible, looking for something. My teacher saw me and asked what I was looking for. I said, "The Serenity Prayer." She smiled and said, "Now, Belinda, that is not in the Bible." Boy, did I feel foolish. :)

This morning, I wrote a version of it in my own words, but am not sure if I should post it, for .... is it copyrighted? ... and if so, is my version mine? and ok to post? hummmmmm

Serenity Prayer

Used to .... long time ago in the computer world.... I could click on a folder in my email program and highlight all the mail in that folder and then save it as a file. One long text file, but they were backed up ... if needed to be. Then, in their updating things, it was not more. My hot mail keep box was getting fuller and fuller. Then, tonight I figured out how to save them again and empty the folder.

How to backup hotmail emails
select all in a folder (each page of them)
select print option from toolbar
when box comes up with the file in it, select all then copy and paste it into a notepad file.

That's it.

I made laundry detergent again this week. I think that makes about 4 or 5 times in the past 2 years since I discovered it. Wow, the money we have saved!

I also hung clothes on the line. I didn't do this for any 'health' or 'saving money' issues. I did it because since we built the back room, but not finished it, we don't have a place for the dryer to vent. I took a basket full to mom's a couple times, but it has been so sunny and not smoky and no pollen, I thought I'd try it the old fashioned way.I had forgot how fresh-smelling they are when they have been dried on the line outside.
