Yes, there are resize apps on a phone that often have to be used.

On a computer, one of many photo editing tools can be used to resize the photo, that can be a bit trickier, and in some cases a real PITA.

Thanks for the pointers Rob. I have to look into the re sizing app. I followed your steps and it was smooth sailing until I was required to alter the image. Thanks again

Scott, on my android I literally have an easy to use app called “Photo & Picture Resizer” that works like a charm

Survival advice: stay married and don't borrow any money. To keep your money, eat at home.

Happy Anniversary to you both!
My wife and I married 42 years ago....we were 8th graders when we first met....we waited until she finished college, which she paid for herself, to get married. I went into the home building trade right after high school. In a span of three years, I bought an acre of land and built a very nice small home for us to live in....we moved in the day we married at age 21. We grew up together...and now growing old together....marrying that girl was the best decision i ever made!

You tell a great story, Bob. Eighth grade was a little ahead of us. Our fist dates we rented a canoe locally and drifted crawdads. However, her lunch preparation was a little primitive -- P&J sandwiches. We caught so many small mouths that her father, he also a fisherman, couldn't believe what we came home with. Bass love crawdads.

I should get the clap for suggesting this. Jason has worked out pretty well with this new thread. Can't say he doesn't know fishing. He brought new life to this joint.

I agree, Frank.

Hope his trips don’t get cancelled due to COVID-19

Man has the coronavirus world gotten scary. Our neighbors are all home from work; no traffic; stock market taking a dive. Only action I have is reading a book on African lion hunting.

I've lost all interest in writing which has happened before and I will get over.

It’s a new world, and I can’t help wondering if we are “over-reacting” or just experiencing a “new normal”

Two of our children who are in healthcare both insist strongly that my wife and I, who are of course about the age of your kids, Frank, not go anywhere. My wife, with both asthma and immune system issues, is in the high risk category.

Working from home and our company is still trying to grapple with what we expect to be a 2 month+ shutdown from normal business activities.

Don't complain, Rob. My wife and I have lost 1/4 million $ in the last month over this market decline.

WE both know that. Last time around my father-in-law, child of the old Depression, sold out of fear and locked in his losses. Still, when it is happening to you, its a tough pill to swallow.

We are great believers in diversification and only have half of our wealth at risk. Even the safe stuff is split up.
