    Yesterday my pear tree spilt and blew down in the the Nor'easter. Today I was outsmarted by four turkeys and to top that off a Federal Park Ranger wanted to arrest me for hunting with a fishing rod and his ole worthless barky dog wanted out of the surburban to bite me.

    So I get home and am just watching a bunch of anorexic girls trying to be the next Top Model and suddenly I see this wierd thing show up on my laptop.

    What is the little icon that at the bottom that says "email post" and what does it do?

    I dunno !

    But all my Japanese maples are frost bit so bad that the leaves will have to fall off and and then re grow . Same with my wisteria on the overhead trellis by the pool . Cannas , daylillys , boxwoods , crape myrtles , gardenias all zapped bad .

    Then my friend Bryce made the mistake of telling his sons where I had been seeing a strutting tom before the season opened . Well it aint strutting no mo , they went and whacked it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Gloom , despair , agony on me . Deep dark depression , excessive misery /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Don't know offhand, but:

    -was it showing when you booted up your laptop?
    -what programs did you have running at the time?
    -what do you see if you right click your mouse on the icon?
    -do you have a firewall/anti-virus/anti-spyware programs running?

    Just a few things that might help to narrow it down.

    I think you are talking about the little envelope icon at the bottom of each post? If so, you can send the post via email to an email address (without needing to copy/paste into your email program). Kinda nice if you are using a public computer and want to send a post to someone (yourself maybe).

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Don

    That makes sense being as I use public libraries when I am out west. Somehow I had never ever noticed the little envelope icon thing before.

    Some posts are worth saving, especially, if someone actually gives the grid coordinates of where a good turkey can be found. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
