4 Things I Learned This Week-Part 20

Choosing Colors for Decorating

At Freaky FrugaliteI found a great site that helps you choose colors for your rooms that reflect your personality or the moods you want to create in your home by answering a few questions. I tried it a couple different times using different answers just to see what it would recommend. It's


I learned I wasn't up on driving rules as much as I thought after getting only one right out of six on the short driving quiz in the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER on Thursday. I was floored by this so went over to to take the complete quiz. Apparently, they picked out the hardest questions because now I got them right and scored 100%. I felt better. Take the quiz to review some driving rules and see how you do (not state specific).

Computer Tips

Finally, I found instructions for password protecting files in Windows XP at Bloody Computer. I've been wanting to do this since I got my home computer. Right click on file, send to zip folder, right click zip folder, select "explore" and choose add password from the file menu. UPDATED: 5/24/09: When I tried to do this, I didn't get the option to make a zip file so still don't know how I can do this.

IE Problem

I discovered my blogspot blogs wouldn't open in IE and in reading Beaded Tail's comment on Health Nut Wannabee Mom if found that she had the same problem that was fixed once she removed her followers gadget. So, that is what I did too and the problem is now fixed, but my followers gadget is gone. I hope this issue gets corrected and when it does, I'll re-instate my followers gadget.

Daisy: Thanks for the tip. I tried it and it works.

I hope Blogger fixes the problem quickly too so the Followers gadget can be moved back to the sidebar so people can see it.
