NERD DETAILS FOR MAKING A PRINT:   On the FILE menu (on top) where you can select PRINT, select PRINT PREVIEW instead.  This makes it easier to flip from PORTRAIT to LANDSCAPE orientation, and to find the control that forces the browser to print the page smaller or larger when automatic sizing doesn't work out.  

The picture displayed here comes from a file.  You can save the file itself, and feed it to a real photo printing program if you don't like what the browser does to it.  //END NERD DETALS

Jim Tierney courts Gwen -- Germany, ca 1949.

Buffy was calm for a poodle (left), but Bichon Frisés Lexy (Alexis) and Scottie (right) sometimes rev'd each other up, driving themselves (and us) crazy.   Keeps you young.
