    I had to buy a new computer monitor today. I came home from work, brought the keyboard and mouse in from the car (it stays in the car if difficult child is at home alone), started everything up, and the DARN monitor would not turn on. We checked chords, switches, everything, and there was no light or action from it at all.

    So, here I go to walmart and get the least expensive one they have in on the shelves, (bought on credit of course) which happens to be a decent 19" Dell. But- it's wide screen and everything is s t r e t c h e d horizontally. It's driving me batty (trust me- that doesn't take much right now). My circles for "back" and "forward" are oval. I feel like I'm looking at silly-putty!!
