Is there any way to increase the size of pictures that are scanned? I think it might be the printer. Here's why. I'm getting back to ancestry.com and I have tons of scanned pictures from my former printer and they are great. Now, however, the pictures are just the size of the original, and they barely fill the page and look kind of silly. I'm frustrated!!!!

Trump exemplifies the 7 deadly sins. Copied from Facebook.

Gluttony: Eats big macs and ice cream daily. He washes it down with a diet coke. He may not be obese, but he's overweight and edging slowly to seriously overweight.

Greed: He low-balls and straight up doesn't pay his contractors while living in a golden penthouse.

Pride: He puts his name on the side of his buildings. He's also willing to throw everyone else under a bus via twitter instead of admitting any wrongdoing.

Sloth: He only works around 2-3 hours per day. The rest is spent as executive time watching FOX News or golfing in Florida.

Lust: He has had multiple affairs with porn actresses and playboy models.

Envy: He wishes he had Obama's popularity and ratings and it eats him inside.

Wrath: He brings down the hammer on those he perceives as not loyal or willing to bend the knee to him. Look how many of his staff he's gotten rid of.

I've been binge-watching the 2nd season of Designated Survivor. Yes, I know it is kind of corny and

definitely over the top (crises, crises out the wazoo!), but I still enjoy it. The actors are very good.. Keifer Sutherland is a smart, kind, compassionate man and his staff is terrific, always having his back. Here's the thing--I could easily see Obama in some of the situations, being calm, deliberative, listening to his advisers, always caring for the American people. And here's the other thing, when I first started watching I actually became deeply depressed trying to imagine trump in ANY of the scenarios, just never, nada. The contrast is beyond words. I know it's just a tv show, but still.......

posting pictures

Would someone here refresh my memory as to how to post a picture? I used to be able to, but have forgotten (old age!) how to do it!

"I'm a Democrat. It's what we do."

So we recently had some concrete work done on our garage floor, which was badly cracked due to settling. It was a nicely done job. My husband and I were standing outside later on when a pickup truck drove in, and it was one of the workers. He jumped out and told us his boss had paid him $163 in cash and he had lost it! He had gone to get air in his tires and realized it was gone. We all 3 started looking around all in the yard, his truck, to no avail. The man was near tears. I couldn't stand it. I had just been to the ATM so I went in and got $60 and brought it out to him. He was back in the truck by then. He said, "Oh, no. I can't take that." I dropped it in his lap and said. "It's all right. I'm a Democrat. It's what we do. If you find your money, you can pay me back." He finally took it. Am I a sucker as my trumpian cousin says? Maybe so, but it still felt good to do that!
