Well, it is 47° here in NJ at the moment. Hopefully this will help us to get some signed contracts back. This is the first morning that it feels cold. It usually helps get a few back. Especially with a follow up mailing.

It's 37 here in Ohio

And I just got a call this morning to renew a very large old account with no questions asked :waving: . Never gave it a thought as to it being cold but who knows ;) . I guess I'm lucky as I only have 1 account that has not renewed yet but should as I've done it for the last 15 years.

41 overnight here in the Pittsburgh region. There was a frost advisory last night though, forecast low of 35, but as usual it seems they weren't quite on the money.

Chuck, how do you make that little " ° " degrees symbol?? I don't see any such thing on my keyboard.

42° just outside Philadelphia this morning. I already got a call from one the banks we do telling me that the contract was being mailed out today. I also got a call last night from our salt supplier with price quotes (prices went down from last year).

Ya think salt prices went down cause the distributers have such a stock pile of old stock from last Winter if u want to call it a winter. Trying to get rid of it cheaper so they can bring in fresh stock???

Weatherbug just now chirped with a freeze/frost warning for tonight. It would be nice if the ground got frozen before the first snow. I doubt we'll be that lucky, though.

It got down to 35 with a frost warning last week in the Iowa/Illinois area However, it is supposed to be in the high 70's again later this week. Mother nature is playing with us. Good side though, more time for yard cleanups.

Digger, (and anyone else)... To make the degree symbol, you use ASCII (ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange).

The degree symbol ° is simple, as are the others...

Hold down the "Alt" key on your keyboard, and while holding it down, type 0176 on you number keypad, then let up the Alt key.

There is a whole bunch of symbols using the Alt key...

Alt 176 = °
Alt 0174 = ®
Alt 0169 = ©
Alt 0222 = Þ (which can be used for :Þ )
Alt 0254 = þ (which can also be used for :þ )
Alt 0444 = ¼

There's a couple of hundred symbols...

One small correction to Chuck's post - Alt 0176 = °

Chuck, can you help with this: My wife wants to know what the one is for the heart. I got it once but can't remember what it was.:(

Figured it out - Alt 55555 = ¢¾

Well, it was a heart on Microsoft Works.

Mick, i dont know if this helps or not, but i have AOL, and if i go to the start button, all programs, then to accessories, then system tools, then character map and click that, you will see another little screen pop up, click the down arrow for fonts and choose the SYMBOL font, then the chart changes and in that chart, you will see all sorts of symbols you can make using the ALT key and the heart is one of them along with spades, clovers and diamonds too. The heart one is 17 rows to the right, 7 rows down if your computer is like mine. Im not positive u have to have AOL to do what im saying, maybe just the same windows version, i have windows xp.
