Ok Jerry, did that, created an account, changed the format again, restarted, still the same. I'm fed up with this now I've spent far too much time on this trivialo matter, both of my own and of all you good people on here. I'm beginning to obsess about it. So thank you all very much it's been terribly good of you to try and help me. I'm just going to change the date manually each time i need to or just put up with the long format. No big deal really in the grand scheme of things. Once again guys and gals many thanks for your interest and your patience.
Thanks for your kind words. The marathon here in Pittsburgh will be in just a few weeks and there is much concern, for the victums in Boston and for the security of the upcoming event. Three years ago there was a scare at the finish line of the Pittsburgh Marathon. It turned out ot be an abandoned microwave oven, but you can't take any suspicious object, person or action lightly. 50 residents of the Pittsburgh area ran in the Boston event this week. We feel very close to what happened there.
