   StephaniePlum  In the wake of Gen. Kelly’s remarks yesterday regarding the sacred nature of honoring the military’s fallen heroes, I want to strongly recommend the movie that he made passing reference to: Taking Chance starring Kevin Bacon. It’s the true story of a U.S. Marine who volunteers to escort the body of a Marine home to his family for burial. I wasn’t aware at the time I watched it, but Gen. Kelly served as technical advisor to HBO in producing the film. It presents in precise detail the care and respect shown to every KIA military member and their families. Knowing now that Gen. Kelly was a part of its production makes it even more meaningful to me. Wonderful, wonderful depiction of a very personal and painful part of our military establishment.

   StephaniePlum  This was meant to show up on the Movies and Reviews page !! Oops. I’ll try to repost it there. Then again, maybe this recommendation will reach a wider audience of Connection folks by being here. I strongly encourage you and family members to watch it.

   StormCnter  Stephanie, please repost your comment on the Movie Wall as you suggested and I'll find a YouTube clip from the movie to go with your comment.

   Escaped commieny  thanks for the heads up, I just watched it, very touching. It is available to stream for free if you have Amazon Prime, more than worth the time.

   Tulsa  Morny. Is everyone aware of NoMoRobo? It's free robo blocking for landlines and I see there is now a app for the apple people. It is $1.99 per device, per month.

We have a landline and a Trac Fone for emergencies.

With NoMoRobo a robo call rings once and is booted. Since those people share info, calls begin to decrease.

The phone is turned off except 9-noon weekdays. Anyone calling receives a busy signal, not the ans. machine. We can call out, but no calls in. The peace and quiet is lovely. That is another huge reason the calls have decreased. Lack of availability.

We have one persistent telemarketer with a block of numbers...only the last digit changes. I let the machine ans and the person hangs up. Must be a slow learner.

Anyone know if Chillijilli learned how to block images? All I can advise is search with a specific question. You will be amazed at the answers on the web.

   Gram77  This has nothing to do with anything except that I figured out my computer problem all by myself and that is really something! I contacted Spectrum and told them my problem and in the end the tech suggested I call my computer guy. Well, I decided to just start poking icons and when I saw one that looked like it might work I went for it and I got my problem fixed. : )

God bless you Gram77... you have been through a lot the last few years.

   GO3  Re: Texas Tech shooter news on the mother ship. Youngest daughter was at Kappa Delta when the lock down occurred. Shooter in custody and everyone is headed back to the dorms with Tech police in abundance around the campus. Here's an earlier article from Fox News:

d-down-shooter-at-large.html


If you read this (understanding it's an early report ) one thing jumps out. Why didn't the police frisk this druggie when they busted him? He manages to get a pistol into the Tech police station?!?!?!

   Kono  Nice political cartoon on the LCom home page today. It might make more sense to have the caption be "Military / Civilian" than as "Foreign / Domestic". But maybe that's just me being picky.

   Phooey  ((({{Surfie}} ) ) ) Smoooch !! I missed you so much !
Do you know anything about the other frogs? I don't.

EC, Thank you for caring. Page and I are fine however,
for months I was terrified regarding her health and
did not want to recall/publish my fears. It was bad.

Tulsa, Thank you for helping everyone. 'Brave' is working
for me. It has a few bugs but worth the effort.

   Kono  Bravo for brave, Phooey. Never forget that you and Page are "in His loving grip" (thanks, Kevin ).

While I mostly lurk here (rarely have anything worthwhile to add ), I should relate more often that y'all around here are a true blessing.

   Lonestar Jack  I see that some people are having backup problems. It boils done to how much time, money and effort you think insurance on your data is worth. I can't answer that for you, but when I have a computer question one of the best places to get an answer is https://askleo.com/best-articles-collection/ . Somewhere in his vast collection of discussions I can usually find an answer.
Hope this helps

   Chillijilli  Thanks immensely, especially for being granted a Phooey pardon fro all of my gross violations!! Standing O on that one! haha Big smiles!
Is there a known Apple user lurking around as I really don't know what the "circled i" is. Am determined to beat this red dot to a pulp, just as I did a scorpion the other night. Can be pretty vicious, so maybe Phooey should rethink pardon.

   Tulsa  Chilli, The i in a circle shows site information, such as tracking protections, and permissions you give a site.

If I were you, I'd find an apple forum..just search apple or whatever your device is called and then forum. You may have to sign in. I basically read what problems people have and the answers and find solutions to my questions/problems in Win. 10.

You also ought to have a help icon on your device. Type in or click the problem and it gives you info on how to fix. Other than that talk to real live people you know who have the same device and problems and see what they do.

I hope this helps.

I searched 'set site permissions and access for macs'. There were lots of hits. It's all Greek to me. Had it been Latin, I could have read it. heh

   Chillijilli  Please forgive me for posting about a tech problem here. There's more info on the Computer/Tech Issue wall but I wondered if any of you are having "invalid certificate" problems right now as I am? I'm getting urgent loud dinging on my devices with pop ups warning me that the"lucianne.com certificate is invalid" and is a site "pretending to be lucianne.com" For more info or if you are experiencing the same problem, please check my latest post on the Computer/Tech wall. Sorry to interrupt like this :-/. but if it's just me, that's one thing---if many of us, it could be an entirely different issue. Thanks tons.

   StormCnter  I abandoned a newly suggested browser because it wouldn't allow me to view Lucianne.com, giving me the "invalid certificate" message. I uninstalled the browser and went back to old reliable Firefox, Chrome and Opera. None of those give me any trouble with Lucianne.com.

   Tulsa  Chilli, this was posted by another Ldotter some time ago. I failed to note the moniker or I would attribute it.

'In regards to the certificate problem: One-my login password is unique to Luci so I don't worry about that. And don't log in any where else that is not secure.
Two- I click on the circled "i", arrow over to More Information, then click on permissions and block all except images for the Connection, and block everything, including 'load images' on the mothership. You will see the icons of items you blocked in the address bar. Works for Drudge too. I continue to use Firefox w/Adblock'

The above poster is correct. After reading those comments and doing as suggested, I am no longer concerned bout Luci's certificate. It is not secure, but she or her staff could check my ISP if anyone used my moniker and password. I don't post trash or profanity and I believe they know that.

   Escaped commieny  good morning. Tulsa that was me, it's actually fun to check that information circle and deny permissions at some of the 'littered' site. The Adblocked some Video's I wanted to see, so I let that be disabled for that site but used the permissions to block my location and its access to leaving garbage on my PC.
Now Surfie !! you don't check your email do you, have been worried about you during the tornado's and Phooey how did you make it through Irma? We didn't lose power but the cell tower went down. And the neighbors 70 ft tree landed in our yard. 3XALADY traveled to PortCharlotte for vacay and there is a lot of damage. They still haven't cleaned our street of debris and it's what a month ! ?

   Tulsa  EC Thank you for reminding me it was you! I copied and saved it. I knew it would come in handy.

I use ABP and Win. 10 and vary between Firefox, Edge and Brave. I hope this works for the Apple people.
