March 2010 Desktop Calendar

March 2010 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our calendar for March is a picture that represents the old marble mortar my grandmother found at the bottom of her garden in Marseille in 1937, and one of the venerable cookbooks she entrusted me with; this particular one is called Mes Recettes pour votre ménage. I hope this photo reminds you of heirlooms of your own.

Instructions to get your calendar are below.

Here’s how it works:

1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.

2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

4- Enjoy!

[Note: Readers of this blog live all around the globe, and I am unable to provide localized versions of the desktop calendar at this point. This is why I’ve opted for the international standard, by which a large majority of countries abide, and which states that Monday is the first day of the week.]

    I, too, have one of my grandmother’s treasured cookbooks–she married around 1915, so it’s of that era–and her bread bowl. I will enjoy March. Thanks!

    Merci Clotilde!! I always look forward to your desktop calendars. :)

  • Sadly, my office’s security system does not allow us to download custom desktops. But, this is a beautiful photo!

    Even more sadly, I have almost nothing of my grandparents’. :( Isn’t that just terrible? At least I have my memories. :)

  • Just had to stop by to let you know how much I’ve been enjoying March’s photo! I think that it’s my favorite yet… and I love the special story that is associated with the objects pictured. Merci bien!
