I know how to change font size in an email message, but the whole page is in very small print. Yesterday, it was fine. I've looked everywhere and can't find how to change it back to it's original print size. I tried Yahoo Beta mail, but decided I didn't like it because I couldn't transfer pictures with it. Are they being vindictive here because I quit Beta mail on them?2 AnswersOther - Yahoo Mail10 years ago
Outlook Email has an insert option which lets you insert a photo into the text of the email. I can't find out how to do that on Yahoo mail. Is it even possible? I know how to attach photos, but would like to be able to include a picture in the text. Also, if Yahoo doesn't have that option, how do I activiate Outlook email?2 AnswersAttachments and Photos1 decade ago
How is it that liberal Progressives are so adamant about maintaining separation of church and state when it come to the Christian or Jewish religions, yet absolutely swoon over the Muslims who blatantly violate separation by the very structure of their "religion." Why can't liberals seem to understand that Islam is not just a religion, it's a political movement as well. They purposely do not separate church and state because if that existed, they would never be able to succeed as a popular religion. Who in their right mind thinks that the stoning to death of women who are even so much as accused of adultery is okay? Who in their right mind would even think that once you become a Muslim, you cannot quit or back out without having a death sentence hanging over your head? And please don't say that it's only the radicals who think like that. It isn't. It's Shariah Law!.
So if anyone liberal or not can make sense out of Obama's support of building that Mosque next to Ground Zero in the name of freedom of religion when obviously Islam isn't a religion as every American non-Muslim knows the definition of what constitutes an organized religion. Don't we not have enough double standards? Do we have to create more double standards to accommodate Muslims?4 AnswersHistory1 decade ago

In many states, and more are trying to establish this: if you have a driver's license, you can vote. All that's needed for a driver's license in my state is three forms of ID. That can include a birth certificate, a driver's license from anywhere, and a social security number, but they will accept a utility bill with your name on it. Although they have the ability to cross check social security numbers, they either won't or can't do that. The more warm bodies the states can get on their state welfare rolls, to more Federal money they receive. The Federals love it because it justifies their existence. And in my opinion, once these moochers are entrenched in all these programs, you aren't going to get them out even with dynamite. My question is this: As long as the Dems are in power, do you think the immigration problem is going to be solved?11 AnswersElections1 decade ago
Before the states go bankrupt due to mandates of the upcoming Medical Health Care Bill, do you think some states would rather cede from the union? For instance, in the first few months after Texas reformed medical malpractice tort law they were able to save 2 billion dollars which went back into updating hospitals. Why would they put up with being strapped with this monstrosity when they are reforming their health care on their own?8 AnswersGovernment1 decade ago

I've been working out three days a week for the past two months. Although I feel good and can see the difference in my body shape, I've noticed that even though I lift to failure, I no longer experience sore muscles like I did when I was young. And my measurements have remained static for that last 30 days. Are there any older lifters out there who could comment on this?10 AnswersDiet & Fitness1 decade ago
