THANKS SO MUCH!  I'm not into golf, but is there a spot from off the road or do I have to get on the course to see your trees?


Does anyone know what  that 'size' thing is about and  how to resize the print when it goes crazy?

When your print menu opens there should be a spot that says either 'print to size' or 'print to page'. Can't remember the exact words.  ::)   Anyway, you click on there and it will automatically size it to your paper size.
Hope this helps and doesn't confuse you any more!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

What a cool thing!  It looks just like the big "W" from  the movie "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!"

Check out Tony Couch's instructions on how to do palm trees to bring them to life.

Val, I was posting a comment right here in the box when the type size changed on me, from regular to a small size.  I let it go and went on to 'POST'.  Then I saw it appear in the box corrected but with those [size] gizmos mixed in with my comments.  ~Liz[/size]

Thanks, Alice.

I asked my son to get me Tony Couch's book for Christmas.  I'll wait until then, not enough time right now.

Liz, I think you can only see the W from the ocean or out on the course.  It's somewhere between the Kalanianaole Hwy and the big, blue ocean.

Not sure I could ever find it.  I hardly ever leave my office in the Cart Barn.

I thought about that movie when I saw the "W" trees too!
