   Bettijo posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Question for you fellow iPad users:

I use Charter for INternet and TV. My computer was so slow I took it in to Gerk Squad. They said it was not my computer, it was my ISP. Charter sent out a technician. As I remember, download speed was 400-something and uplad in 70s, whatever that means. He said that was good.

In the top left hand corner of mt iPad screes are 5 circles. Right now only two are black. Is this like the bars on your cell phone that tells you the signal strength? I am unable to load a Netflick movie. Could this be the treason?

The Charter technician went to a web site to check strength of connection. Does anyone know name of web site so that I can check this myself?

Thanks.

   Bettijo posted on Coffee Klatch  It used to be "The Connection" was the first site I visited each morning...now some days I do not visit at all. Why? Well, we have lost so many of our posters, some voluntary, some banned, that frequently there is nothing new to read. For instance, notice mine is the first post since Monday, today is Thursday, on this wall.

   Gerty  Good morning, Miss Bettijo.
I, too, have noticed that which caused you to post your comment and I would be remiss if I failed to point out that you are one of the posters I hope we never lose!

The Connection is a rarity. With the standards the Staff upholds, it is a mystery that it survives in this day and age. Notice the headings: Where Eagles flock to chat, schmooze and have some fun; A Chat Salon; And a touch of Saloon.

Had any "fun" reading the news today? What is going on in the world saps the humor and good feelings out of most of us.

It is still good to come here and read about how life goes on during these trying times.

   Gram77  Am I glad for the post by Bettijo! It's almost like we have lost some of our "founders". Every day I check every site and there are only a few that stay what I would consider active and up to date. I agree with Gerty in that the news and state of affairs with the country makes it difficult to remain upbeat. I always see what's cooking here before I check my mail. Interesting how we seem to be friends and keep track of each other. Let's hope this continues.

   NotaBene  Oh, I miss Mrs. Cow and Yotty and Nu, also Rake King. Surfhut is right we will continue although everything around us is so depressing. This man getting away with what he is doing, our borders used as a bridge for illegals, Lucianne and The Connection keep me sane. I have to say that I also enjoy the Joke wall. Ynaught makes me laugh all the time.

   Bettijo posted on Jokes  A Jew and an Arab go into a bakery.

The Arab steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket.

He says to the Jew, "See how good I am? The owner didn't see anything.

The Jew says to the Arab, "That's typical of you dishonest Arabs. I am
going to show you an honest way to get the same result."

He goes to the owner of the bakery and says, "Give me a pastry and I will
show you a magic trick."

Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives him a pastry. The Jew swallows it
and asks for another one. The owner gives him another one. Then the Jew
asks for a third pastry and eats that, too.

The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, "What
did you do with the pastries?"

The Jew replies, "Look in the Arab's pocket....."

   Bettijo posted on Household Hints  WW: Is this safe?

Unclog drains without expensive chemicals. Pour a half a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar into a clogged drain. Once it stops foaming rinse down the sink and your drains will be clear. A cheap and environmentally friendly way to unclog a sink!

   MeiDei  Must be safe Bettijo, I've been using this method for years! Sometimes I've had to repeat the process & a few times the plunger came in handy.

   Gerty  For an ounce of prevention: ALWAYS have a wire mesh placed in the drain. Works wonders--saves clogs and money.

   MeiDei  Yes, the wire mesh inserts work well but don't protect the drains from men's shaving leavings, or some soaps & some oily substances that pass through easily. I always put any grease/fats in a container for the trash & wipe down my pans with paper towels before washing but still there can be clogs built up over the years. We were told you should put some baking soda & vinegar in each of your drains 2x a year - when you check the batteries in smoke detectors - just as a preventative. This was advice from our plumber while he was replacing a faucet 30+ years ago.
