When trying to find that perfect font I am often faced with  a very long list of option that sometimes don't even have a thumbnail.  Is there a way to printout a list of all the fonts available on my machine, with a clear thumbnail of each?  Or... to create a file of same that I could put display on my second monitor?

I use FontViewer from http://fontviewer.net/ to look at my installed fonts.  It lets you enter the text you want to be looking for.

+1 on Dave's suggestion of FontViewer. I've been using it for many years (comes from the folks at http://thinkingbig.net/). Here's what its display looks like:
