Out of the Blue

We had a lovely time with our friends last night, it had been a couple of years since some of us got together, so it was worth the effort. Oddly, even though it is harder to find bad or expensive Chinese food than it is to find cheap and good food in Manhattan's Chinatown, last night's dinner was both expensive, and the food was pretty terrible. On the other hand, something like two of the last three times I've tried the Chinese food in Westchester I've ended up with some form of food poisoning, so I guess I should just be thankful to still be upright at this point.

The easiest way is.
Right click on Desktop, Personalize. Then Windows Color And Appearance. Then, at the bottom in text "Open Classic Appearance Properties For More Color Options".

An even easier way is to right-click on the desktop, goto Personalization. Click 'Theme', select 'Winows Classic'. Wait a 15-20 seconds.

I'm running Vista Business, Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate on three different laptops.
