Looking back at your childhood, what gift you remember getting and loving the most?
I had such a neat childhood - 10 children. Gifts only came on your birthday and at Christmas. The one that sticks out to me in particular is a blue star sapphire ring set in white gold that my mom and dad got me at my request. I was 15 and I still have the ring 36 years later and it is still beautiful. It represented to me that I was growing up and becoming responsible enough to have something nice. It was pretty much all I got that year and I still love it especially since my mom has passed.
Power Wheels. Every kid wanted one. Every dad wanted to screw with the motor to make it go faster. Every mom lost sleep over them. The day you opened up that box that was taller than you were was the greatest day in your existence up until that point.

One of my thumbnails is of a picture which is portrait of a person and the way that it has been cut makes it look a bit strange as his head is cut off so ideally it would be adjusted so that his head was included?Is there a way to...
