get a client who has either died in the past or is going to die in the future.

It is the actual registered name of my corporation, Kevin. :)

D&T, aren't you just a little ray of sunshine?

Since ministry is what really fires me up, I'd call mine, Death, Taxes, and Afterlife.

When I first used it in 1997, after having operated as Damella Inc [three names mashed, two who left], my secretary hated answering the phone "Death & Taxes." In Philly it sounded too mafioso, so I then had D & T register the fictitious name of my dog Farfel, who spent her days in my office because my late wife had a serious heart operation. So now secretary could answer 'Farfel Associates.' I answer my phone myself now, and simply say 'Talk to me' since most of the calls are people selling telephone service, copier cartridges, or pushing for police and fire donations. Farfel is in her last months of being on this earth, though still a delight so I will keep both names after she goes.

I have a five letter last name, but so many clients misspell it or mispronounche iut, even those I've known since 1982. In fact my part time seasonal employee and friend sends me emails with my name misspelled.

make sure you get a good picture of Farfel. Put it in your lobby and have a plaque made that says "Our Founder". It is sad to lose a long-time trusted friend. I had to have Stormy put to sleep this past year. He used to come to the office with me.

Click my profile for a photo of her after a hair cut. Sheepdogs, even when mixed with Irish Setters, are the greatest.

I saw that wonderful photo and was glad you had written which one you were so as not to confuse us!

There is a resemblance, except that one doesn't have a tail shaved most of the way. And it inspired me to upload a pic, but the one I have is a .bmp and it only accepts .jpg...?? Came from our camera...don't understand the problem. Oh, well. Continue to use your imaginations.

Send it to Tim; he will upload it [but he may draw a mustache on it too]

JR - You can run "mspaint", open the *.bmp file, and then save it as *.jpg.

Thanks Deb! It worked, tho' it's huge! Go ahead and fix it....work to do now.

The software allows you to resize.

Deback (talk|edits) said:

Click Image at the top and then Attributes. You can change the width and height to the size you desire.

Here's another tip: If you ever want to save an image of what you're looking at in a window on your monitor or the desktop on your monitor, you can press Ctrl and then the Print Screen button on your keyboard. Then open Mspaint or your favorite photo program and press Ctrl and V to paste the image into a file, which you can then resize, save, and print.
