   Tulsa It appears so in the link given the browsers mentioned on the page and the comparisons of speed.

I have FireFox and when I loaded Edge, a green line moved over the FF icon. Then I had to go to documents and dbl click to set up Brave. It's very similar to FF only it has more built in features.

I'm on a desktop on a Dell pc. This is day 3 of no ads at Lucianne, btw.

   Tulsa  Wan2 is correct. This is the first morning clicking refresh does not remove ads. I'm in Win 10 using the Firefox browser.

Wan, lets take this to the computer wall.

   Mildred  Good morning all. I had problems with I.E. for a while and installed Firefox. When that caused more problems with ads, especially on Lucianne, I uninstalled Firefox and just used I.E. So far, no problems with ads. Of course I'm still using Windows 7 and I am using I.E. 11. Just to add to all the problems with the computers, several sites are 'improving' their sites and changing to all new junk sites so my computer is a mess. I wish they would understand that being 'new' and 'improved' does not mean better. Hope you all find a better way. If so, let us know. I'll follow on the computer wall. Thanks.

   Lonestar Jack  The ad companies need ads to get their message out and will spend mucho dinero to defeat all efforts to thwart them. Browsers also change---in fact handling of dragging and dropping images in emails differs. Firefox enables this action whereas Firefox Developers Edition does not.

   WAN2 posted on Jokes  A Baptist minister and a Unitarian minister were flying to a multifaith convention together. The Unitarian was very nervous and confided to the Baptist that this was the first time he had ever flown and was very scared. The Baptist said that there was nothing to it — "Just sit next to me and I will help you." The Baptist showed him how to put on his seat belt and adjust the air vents. Once in the air, a very pretty flight attendant came by with a tray of drinks. "Cocktails?" she asked. The Unitarian lifted one off the tray and said, "Thank you." The Baptist had just delivered a fiery sermon on the evils of alcohol that morning. He looked at the flight attendant and said, "Young lady, I would rather commit fornication than touch alcohol to my lips." Shocked, the Unitarian placed his drink back on the tray and said, "I believe I would too, I didn't know we had that choice."

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Trump & The Pope...

Seeking a weekend break from his campaign rallies; Donald Trump jetted to his yacht, which was docked off the coast of Italy. He invited Pope Francis and the press corps on board for a Saturday afternoon cruise.

It was a rather windy day. The Pope's little hat, his zucchetto, was blown from his head and into the water. A crewman began lowering a boat to retrieve the zucchetto. Trump told the crewman not to bother. Trump climbed down the yacht's ladder; walked across the waves, picked up the zucchetto; walked back to the yacht and handed it to the Pope. The Pope and the press corps were amazed! Donald Trump could actually walk on water!

Speculation immediately began as to how ABC, CNN, NBC, ABC, The Washington Post and New York Times would report this miraculous event to the rest of the world.

The next morning the New York Times headline read . . .

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  My golden puppy would not go up or down stairs. I put a leash on him, pulled him gently close to me, and charged ahead steadily giving him no choice but to follow. Bingo. Stairs never a problem ever since. I.e., I KNEW he could do it. But HE needed convincing.

   Balogreene  We used to own greyhounds. A couple in our group had a 100 lb. boy who couldn't do stairs, so they carried him up and down every day. Then, one day, they came home and he ran downstairs to greet them. He wasn't carried again.

   StormCnter  We had a female Chow mix who was afraid of nothing in the world but open staircases, the kind with no risers. We carried her up and down a lot of motel stairs when we were traveling.

   MeiDei  Your comment made me laugh Storm, did you happen to see the video on the Dogs, Cats Wall of dogs going up & down stairs? There's a fellow with a full grown St. Bernard that has/had your Chow experience.

   WAN2 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Best description of Barack Obama ever written….(in 2008 )

Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of
Reagan's strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union
with the star wars race and expose their inner weakness.
For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was
extremely interesting and well structured and informative.
He consults(ed ) with several mega corporations on global
trends and the future, etc. He is in semi-retirement now.
He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything.
He is also a somewhat well-known mountain climber and

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler:

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored
empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience,
no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works,
no understanding of how the world works, no balls,
nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects.
The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by
his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle
names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people
in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo
grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the
descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in
slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead,
his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main
Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the
descendant of slave owners.
Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete
neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from
her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious
cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin,
transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution
from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it,
no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make
of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy
Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for
liberals to worship him:
Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian
and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

And yet he got elected, not once but twice. Thanks to those that did
not think it was important to vote for freedom and those that were willing
to give up their freedoms for entitlements.

Remember you don't have to be on a southern plantation to be a slave,
if you are dependent on government entitlements you just have a different
slave owner.

Thought you might want to consider getting on board early.

A world famous engineer just started a business in Afghanistan.

He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.
He says prophets are going through the roof!

   WAN2 posted on Jokes  Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, my wife and I went into town and visited a shop.

When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, "Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an a--hole. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.

So my wife called him a sh--head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

We always look for cars with "OBAMA 2012", or "HILLARY 2016" stickers.

We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.
