   Mildred  It's the new year so that must mean we have to be attacked by the unwanted ads. Now we also have recommended videos that you can't stop or delete. Anyone know how to rid Lucianne of these annoyances? Seems that even ABP can't stop them.

   Kono  Where, Mildred? I haven't seen any, yet.

   Mildred  Hi Kono: They were all over the Home Page. I used the old tried and true remedy by right clicking the ad and then click on Inspect Element. I then deleted all x's I could find, clicked on debugging, etc., but I still had the ads. I finally left the site and just tried it again now. So far, I have no ads but I do have the header 'recommended videos' off to the side of the page. I haven't had ads for months and hope I've solved the problem today. Also hope you don't have to deal with them.

   Tulsa  Morning. I tried Edge (Win. 10 browser that replaced IE ) Firefox and Brave with ABP. On the home page, far right, there is a straight line with the words 'trending recommended videos' or something like that, but no videos and no other ads. If I scroll down the line and words go down the page too.

It's Friday morning. It first appeared yesterday or the day before. I hope the ads don't come back too. They are all over Drudge without ABP. They are so distracting. No, they are obnoxious.

No ad has ever enticed me to run out and buy something. Quite the opposite.

Come On Spring! What worse than usual winter.

   StormCnter  North Central Texas- After a fairly pleasantly warm morning, the temperature here has dropped 12 degrees in three hours and will drop another 20 by midnight. It's gonna be a very cold weekend.

   MeiDei  We went from 2 degrees to 32 to 42 ... I think I'll wait another day before getting out the sundresses : ) Did have to stick the whole leg out from under the covers this a.m. - too warm. Snow still piled high enough.

   Fireball27  Wrote an e-mail to the White House and actually got a response. I wanted to see if President Trump agrees we should stop calling them "sanctuary cities", and start calling them what they really are, "aiding and abetting cities". Everyone should know, aiding and abetting is a crime. All who are aiding and abetting ILLEGAL ALIENS are guilty of aiding and abetting. Any ILLEGAL ALIEN working and using fake I.D.'s are committing felonies, and one way to get it to stop is to go after the aider's and abetter's.
Also if you allow DACA, you are rewarding the ILLEGAL ALIENS for their crimes. You are not supposed to be allowed to profit from your crime. You can't rob a bank, jewelry store, or casino etc. and then give the money to your friends and then they get to keep it. Even if they didn't know the loot was stolen, they wouldn't be allowed to keep it.
So how then can the children of the ILLEGAL ALIENS be allowed to benefit from their parents crimes? And shouldn't those who know the ILLEGAL ALIENS are committing these crimes face some kind of punishment?

   Fireball27  Thank you for contacting the White House. We are carefully reviewing your message. President Donald J. Trump believes the strength of our country lies in the spirit of the American people and their willingness to stay informed and get involved. President Trump appreciates you taking the time to reach out. It's from the Office of Presidential Correspondence. At least I know they got my message!

   MeiDei  Good for you for making the effort. I wonder if they have a tally sheet by subject. Your email encourages me to get my thoughts organized enough to write a clear and succinct message knowing it won't fall on deaf ears. Let's hope he gets a weekly run down.

   Kono  Admittedly being only an occasional participant here, I don't know whether Lakerman1 hangs out here. But he mentioned on the mother site yesterday that today's his 79th birthday. And I wanted to stop by here, where socializing is not discouraged, to wish him special birthday blessings.
I've a real problem retaining names I don't use every day (even my own! ), so I only remember a dozen or so Ldotters by-name. And he's one I have come to recognize over the years as a real credit to the Ldotter community (along with you who contribute here all the time, like Phooey, MeiDei, Gram, StormCtr, et al ).
Name-nesia notwithstanding, I hold y'all in highest regard.
Happy birthday Lakerman1, and a blessed Epiphany Sunday to you all.

Best of Birthdays Lakerman1 and many more containing health, happiness & more than enough of all else so you can joyfully share with those less fortunate.

   MeiDei  If you live in the snow impacted areas of the US, and you might only go out today to shovel, add some fun to your car(s ) as these Canadians did. Who knows, you just might make some smile that needed to. This photo was titled "Canadian Vandalism" - we should be so lucky.

   Linder  Wishing you all a Happy New Year! Awoke at 4:45 this morning to Iowa's -19 degrees. You forget from year to year what extreme cold feels like and the sound of snow squeaking underfoot. Out at daybreak to feed the waiting birds.The little juncos are always first. Of course, Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal are my favorites and come only twice a day. The constant activity of birds and squirrels make winter more enjoyable.

   MeiDei  Good for you Linder. No venturing outside for me, I open the door and toss bird seed & suet in small pieces as we have Rambo-like squirrels that take the suet cages with them ; )

   Gram77  Hey Mei.......what fun I have had today. My mobile home park is extremely large and we have our own branch post office, our own fire department and EMS. As a way of earning extra funds to keep all this going we have a really neat thrift shop connected to the fire house itself. I volunteer there and today about 25 cook books, some very old, come in. I brought the old ones home to go through and I found a lot of receipes that my grandmother and my mother made. I spent the entire day looking back on good times and read these receipes. The old Grange cook cooks were the best, some dated as far back at the 1970s. This has been a great day. This should really be in Nostalgia but I don't feel like re-typing it.

   MeiDei  Why Gram, you sly one - gathered up cook books (how many do you have (? ) I won't even try to count mine! Also we have to teach you how to copy & paste. I'll leave that for Storm, she's better at computer guidance then I am. After you've gone through them & pick out some favorites - be sure to share on the Recipe Wall, I think Labrador Heaven (under your post below ) would welcome them.

   Gram77  I like interesting salads. Don't know what Lab Heaven likes but I'll post some things and hope they are acceptable. I work at the thrift store again tomorrow and will return all the books I poked through and bring a bunch more home.

   Labrador Heaven  Thanks - I just miss the Roundtables and squirrels...and all the great recipes people submitted. Kept print-outs of them for years now. Just didn't know why we didn't have one this year. Lots of new names on here and wanted to see what else they might contribute.

   BirdsNest  I read cookbooks a lot. I also buy them at the flea market and some of the sellers give me books they have. Never had a Grange cookbook. Bet those recipes are fine!
