   RedWhiteBlue  How long have we not been able to use the AdBlock feature that I signed up for on the mother site and now this site? It seems that I can't open a posted site when the AdBlock is on. When I pause it the article shows up. But the site gets loaded with all kinds of ads (annoying ones to boot with the flashing and blinking ones ) but when the AdBlock in on I can't get to the articles. What happened that it changed to the less liked system? anyone else?

   Tulsa  I'm in Firefox with AdblockPlus and no problems. I'm using Win. 10. All that matters and so do your site permissions.

A Windows update can change your settings. So can browser updates.

   Tulsa  Download and use Brave.com. No ads with the Brave browser. I downloaded it over a year ago...longer I think, so my version does not look the same as yours would. Updates require a 'relaunch' (restart ). It returns you to the web, but not the site you were visiting.

Also Adblock and AdblockPlus have allowed ads for quite a while. They do not allow ads that blink, flash, etc.

No ads with Brave. To me settings are simple and I'm not remotely tech savvy.

   RedWhiteBlue  Tulsa, thanks for the reply. So there's no way to change settings and if so where would those setting changes be. I'm also with Firefox and AdBlockPlus and Win10.

   Tulsa  How to find site permissions:

Click the (i ) up top in the address bar. click the arrow > beside site not secure. On the next screen at the very bottom click 'more information' which takes you to site permissions.

There is nothing to be done about AdblockPlus. It has been allowing ads for some time. I still have it installed on all my browsers, as ads are worse without it.

BTW, I lost the Edge browser. It just stopped working then disappeared. My husbands lost Edge on the laptop and six weeks later +/- he had a MS update and Edge is back. Mine has not returned. ???

Did I answer your question?

   Tulsa  s/b 'husband'. I only have one. heh

Also, I rilly, rilly recommend Brave.com for a browser. No ads. None. I do have ABP installed on it too.

   Sehall  I just signed up with NetGalley as a reviewer (I review books in my digital publication, Digging History Magazine ). I'm so excited to get "sneak peeks" of books soon-to-be-published. I'm reading one now, a delightful book -- part history and part personal memoir -- about family road trips (Don't Make Me Pull Over! ). Oh, the memories (and the laughs )! I'll be reviewing the book in the June issue of the magazine which has a "Road Trip!" theme.

Subscription sale on now with a chance to win a grand prize at the end of the summer: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/buy-a-subscription/ or by single issues here: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/monthly-issues/.

   Phooey  No offense intended poster, just wondering how long have you had posting privilege. Not familiar with your name.

   Sehall  I don't remember when I joined The Connection -- maybe January of February of this year. Long time Lucianne member though (although I don't comment much ). I put up similar posts earlier but haven't in a while, and I have put up blurbs about my magazine as well. The magazine's focus is history and genealogy and each month has a different mix of articles, with virtually no advertising -- just stories (accompanied by footnotes and sources ). Lots of work (and love ) put into every issue!

   LambChop  Many thanks for posting this. Anything that combines history and genealogy captures my interest. Knowing how critical history is to understanding your own family history is key. I'll be looking into your magazine.

   Sehall  Thank you LambChop for your interest. I do have a summer-long contest for new subscribers: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/specia
l-offers/


I'm very proud of the magazine. After spending four years as the editor of my local genealogical society's newsletter, I'm excited to expand my creativity. After turning the newsletter into an award-winning publication (1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Texas and 2nd in National Genealogical Society this year ), I'm pumped to do my own thing.

Although I don't have a lot of subscribers yet, I will keep plugging away. I have a vendor table at a genealogy conference this weekend so hope to sign up a few there. If you're seriously interested in subscribing, contact me on the web site and pick an issue you'd like to try out (see The Magazine Store - Single Issues ).

   Sehall  To LambChop and StormCnter and all history and genealogy enthusiasts. I helped coordinate the first annual Caprock Genealogy Conference this past weekend in Plainview, TX. It was a great success!

I had a vendor table with a special subscription offer for conference attendees which I'm extending to everyone for one-year subscriptions (offer runs 5/14-5/21 ). Purchase a one-year subscription and apply the discount code "2OFF" at Checkout. See the subscription link above in the comment that started this thread. Thanks for taking a look!

   MeiDei  Hey, Cinco de Mayo (5/5 ) is like our 4th of July, it's when Mexico defeated the French ... it's not made up : ) laughing here, I think I'll treat us with some cheese & jalapeno quesadillas now! Good solve BTW.

For Star Wars fans yesterday was "May the Fourth be With You" and today is "the Revenge of the Fifth" ... and if you prefer Star Trek Spock says: "Live long & prosper:..

   MeiDei  As soon as July 4th was written I thought it would have been better to mention a day celebrating a victory i.e., Patriots Day. Yes it commemorates Mexico's defeat of the French forces. I'd love a Margarita right now but it will have to be V-8 ; )

   StormCnter  Mei, the quiz is clever. Well done.

No, Cinco de Mayo isn't "made-up", but it has zero/nada/nothing to do with the US. It's a very big deal in Mexico and has been imported here to the extent that some schools have made it a holiday.

   Grahamcracker  I’m posting on this wall as I want it to reach as many as possible. First of all, I’m on Medicare. Second, I have 2 chronic diseases: heart and kidney. Third, I have been hospitalized 2x this year. The other day Inwas at my dr.’s office. I saw his PA. When we were finished she told me she had to give me this info. They are part of a program called CCM. From what I understand, it is a government program that covers those with chronic illnesses. You get a social worker, nurse, and many other health aides. The PA was apologetic for bringing this up. I didn’t have to sign up then and said I would look into it. I found it on line, quickly browsed the info. My impression is it’s the camel’s nose under the tent, the first step toward single payer. My question is do any of you know about this program? Your opinion? It would be great if some of you would read the description of this program. Anything that has to do with the government raises my suspicions. By the way, CCM stands for chronic care management. Any information from you would be appreciated. Thanks.

   StormCnter  Grahamcracker, my 74 year old brother is a Parkinson's patient. He is pretty mobile (with the help of a walker ), but suffers from the many manifestations of his disease. He benefits greatly from the program you describe, although I am not familiar with the CCM term. The visiting nurse has been the biggest benefit for him. She is available almost all the time and responds very quickly when he has a medical crisis, plus she schedules regular visits and is in ongoing contact with his various doctors. I'm not sure how he could get along without these services, as he and my sister-in-law live in a very small West Texas town a long way from many sophisticated medical services. It's very much appreciated specialized oversight and I am not aware of any federal intrusion into his life.
