Maybe everyone else already knew this, but I just figured out how to customize my Gmail background. Every time I open my email now, I see pretty pink cherry blossoms. This is much nicer than the other drab background I had before.
I happened upon this because I am in the midst of showing my mother-in-law how to use her new laptop. Wow, that's an exercise in patience. We are making progress, slowly and steadily. At least it's better than the time I had to show Cory's grandmother how to use her computer. That didn't go so well.
