Good point Walter.  At first glance, I think the slider does not fit
the model.  I can't see why:

1. this week < 2. last week < 3. this month

Having a journal entry made today, I can see it in 1. and 3, and not in 2.

So I think a combo, like it is now, fits better.

Side note: I have applied the patch
(https://github.com/edudev/sugar/compare/ticket3026.patch), but I'm
having a hard time testing it with a new sugar build, just because i
don't have old journal entries.  So I guess I'll have to create mock
entries for testing this.  Has anyone did this before?  Or do we have
a sample datastore for testing?
