   WAN2  Palms have been greased. The Mothersite has ads that can no longer be blocked. Hey, everyone's gotta make a buck.

   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.

   Gram77  Boy, are we wet in Bradenton! From all the reports Tampa is going to get the worst. We'll get the edge. If any one is curious just check the National Weather Channel and see the size of this tropical storm.

   Tulsa  I didn't know about this, Gram.

May our beloved Lord dry up the rain and take the wind out of this storm. May he spare people, pets and property from any and all damage. In Jesus name. Amen.

   Safetydude  I'll defer to our neighbors north of us, but here in the Venice/North Port area it was a tempest in a tea cup.
Occasionally heavy rain and strong gusts of wind in the AM but it was pretty much gone by 2-3 o'clock. Now it's going on eight and it's partly cloudy with white clouds in a blue sky.
One of our local TV weatherguessers was right in the spirit of things though; he was on camera in his shirt-sleeves.

   Gram77  We always prepare and then get lucky and these storms go a different direction. I know the weather predictions often mean nothing but I figure the time I ignore stuff is the time I will get hit and won't be ready. Hubby and I live only two blocks from the bay and being in a mobile home I take precautions. I don't mind complaining the next morning. I just figure it's all part of living in Florida.

   Iacta alea est  How kind of you to ask Mei. I'm mostly OK. I broke my left wrist on 7/6, and am getting ready to move to OH. I'm a leftie, so writing & typing is a bit difficult. Hope things are OK w/ you.

   Kono  I usually enjoy those cartoons enormously; but I think I missed that day for some reason, and the feature to pull up previous days' "must reads" does not include the cartoon for previous days. If, by chance, you saved it, could you attach it to a reply here?

   Grahamcracker  Not sure which page to post this, so I'm posting here. I had a rash, went to the dermatologist. He prescribed a cream. He gave me a coupon to call a mail-order pharmacy. The cost of the cream would be $35 and would be hand-delivered. Fast forward a couple months. Still am using the cream. The dr. wrote a scrip in case I ran out before my next appointment. On a whim, I looked it up on line. The cost for this cream at CVS, Walgreens, Target was $8000. This is not a misprint. There was an article about this cream. Seems as though some company bought different meds that have no generic equivalent. This particular one raised the price 4000% in 2 years. I took the scrip to Walgreens. They said their price would be $7000! I told the dr. yesterday that I would not be refilling that scrip. He was amazed at the cost. When I tell people about this, I'm sure they will think I'm lying. I just wanted to share this utterly ridiculous experience. Thanks for listening!

   MeiDei  Further to this - if you're ever in need of medical hard equipment do your cost homework before going through your insurance plan. I.e., a device I had to get - rollator - was $60-80 on-line/in store without insurance, $130 co-pay with insurance & free from St. Vincent DePaul Society used but in mint condition. Lots of charities accept nearly new medical equipment, check your area.

   Suejeanne  with being reminded again about what good buddies the Bushes and the Clintons are - and how Bill Clinton is the "brother from another mother" - hyuk, hyuk, hyuk - I wish they would all go on the Jerry Springer show and do a paternity test and settle it once and for all.

   Gram77  Since there are so many level headed people here at The Connection I feel safe making this comment. I am so sad and so upset with the way our president is taking care of us. Yes, I am praying. Gram

   Gram77  I am very concerned as to where the actions of N. Korea may take us. As for the parenting sense, that never crossed my mind.

   Mike PHX  It may be cold comfort for some, but not for me: Thank GOD it's not Hillary. We could be on the quick way of anhilalation of one or more of our cities. I don't think Trump will let the subhuman dwarf even come close.
I don't see him as a parent, but he does remind me of my old dad. The things he'd say to me.

   GO3  Gram, OK I understand. I agree with Suejeanne. Clinton's selling technology and bribing the Norks during his administration is appeasement and is not taking care of us by any stretch of the imagination. It's just kicking the can down the road until..well now. Historically, if France and Britain had put up the slightest resistance to Germany marching into the Rhineland in 1938, the Wehrmacht would have turned around and marched home thereby averting the most deadly war in human history. Trump confronting the Norks shouldn't make you sad. It gives me a sense of relief actually.
