   Tulsa  There was a thread discussion on the main board that Lucianne may have read. (Article about google adding ad blocker to chrome. )

I know people are coming to Lucianne seeing that mess and leaving...not commenting, not posting articles.

In FF with ABP enabled, I clicked 'refresh' and the ads disappeared, but I must do that every time I leave and come back.

I don't know if Lucianne was even aware they were there. I email Luis, but I doubt I was the only one. By doing inspect element, I could see over half of the ads were by google, spymaster supreme.

   Tulsa  Storm, the correct way to stop location warnings by FF and use that browser again is below under the comment from Mike in PHX.

Also you were mentioned on the Computer wall about MS updates. I haven't seen you here recently, so I answered for you. Pls make certain I stated your words correctly.

   StormCnter  Tulsa, I went to the Computer Wall and answered RWB. You are right about my Update advice. I'm still running Windows 7 and very happy about it.

   StormCnter  Also, it must have been someone else who needed help with Firefox. I don't use it much any more.

   Bmoc  Hopefully I am posting this in the proper place. My fifth audio book was just released a few days back. This one is a children's book for kids and adults alike. It was a tale told to me by my seven-year-old grandson and is about the love between the two of us. It's also in e-book and paperback form on Amazon. This story is only 50 minutes long and sells for $3.95. You don't need a special tablet, or device as you can listen from your pc or device. The name of the story is "Johnny Robot - Space Alien." http://tinyurl.com/nyy3kb4

Thanks for reading!

   Tulsa  In Firefox with ABP installed, click refresh and the ads disappear. If I leave and return, the ads return. Click refresh and they are gone. I have no idea what is going on....but I did report the problem to ABP once.

I posted on the main page on an article about chrome adding adblocker and on the Computers wall, but know more will see this info here.

   Tulsa  I may? have confused instructions that stop FF asking your location. Go to this link:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/geolocation/

Scroll down to' How do I turn off Location-Aware browsing permanently?' Click and follow the directions.

   Tulsa  I found this note yesterday and realized I gave other directions to stop the FF share your location message. I have done both the above and the other info I shared to this pc.

Also Att only provided some of the info needed to block unwanted calls. Immediately after an unwanted call, press *61 THEN turn on the phone (we have a cordless phone with a landline ). You will hear 3 short tones, then a delay (so wait! ), then a message the number has been blocked.

Att's site directions mixes directions for blocking on the cordless phone with on line site blocking. Not helpful at all.

Anonymous calls may be blocked by pressing *77, turn the phone one and wait for a message.

   Tulsa  It's *61#, but att did not tell anyone that. It's also *77# and that is one time only for anonymous calls. The *61# is after every call to be blocked.

   Lonestar Jack  I am perplexed as to why the liberal news outlets bemoan the horrific killing of all the children by the Syrians etc and yet continue to elect pro-abortion politicians. I suspect they can spin some reason for being for and against the same position.

   Kono  Because to them the will of the mother decides whether the baby is really a life? People who reject the idea of God as stupid are some of the first to ascribe Godlike powers to the human will. (Ability to create life and change sex with the flip of a thought... )

   GO3  For a mother to be pro-abortion she must not only view her desires above God, but she must also think of the child as nothing more than a tumor as an extension of her body rather than a new life relying on the mother for support. She is not only spiritually devoid, but also scientifically ignorant.

   Dwillyc  “Outrage is a substitute for religion: It convinces us that our existence has some kind of meaning or significance beyond itself, that is to say beyond the paltry flux of day-to-day existence, especially when that existence is a securely comfortable one. Therefore we go looking for things to be outraged about as anteaters look for ants. Of all emotions, outrage is not only one of the most pleasurable but also one of the most reliable.” ~ Theodore Dalrymple

   GO3  "Paltry flux of day to day existence" is priceless. I wouldn't tout my globe trotting and sometimes dangerous lifestyle to others, but I laugh at the weekend warriors and think for me, boring is good. The humdrum life must really get to those suffering from affluenza. What else to do, but bicycle around the city, go rock climbing or as Dalrymple says, get outraged at the drop of a hat. Who fixes stuff around the house or play with the kids? Must be the handyman and the nanny.

   GO3  Don't understand the comment. This is not about the military per se but reinforcing Dalrymple's quote that some people nowadays have nothing better to do with their time than play tough guy adventurer on the weekends and/or take up the outrage of the day. When offered the opportunity, I relish doing stuff around the house or time with the family, or frankly, doing nothing and no outrage involved.

   Escaped commieny  I should have marked it OT, but I hate to post on the vet wall because I copy and print for DH.
On topic, I agree with original post and your comment. I didn't mean that your comments belonged on the vet wall. sigh....

   Safetydude  I have to agree with GO3, ..."boring is good."
After missing birthdays, anniversaries and a funeral, it's a pleasure to wake up each day and know(God forbid something untoward happens )I'll be going to sleep in the same place that night.
Be it Sunday or Wednesday I can open a bottle of non-alcoholic champagne, clink glasses with Miss Tina, and relish the idea that I am allowed to be bored, if I choose.

   GO3  Safety sums it up rather well. My latest rant more properly belongs in Pet Peeves, but since we're on the subject I'll post it here. Speaking of "my time" the world is full of Time Bandits. Dealing with any government entity and even some private ones, usually entails gobs of time wasters preventing me from spending what little time I have with loved ones or to just be bored. The simplest task nowadays runs my life far more than it should. The current one is running the gauntlet of school financial aid for the youngest daughter. We might as well hand over our first-born male child for all the junk they require. It is much more onerous than our older kids. But my gripe really encompasses all sorts of stuff like getting driver's licenses to getting a cell phone. Horrible time wasters which can run your life for days.

   Seminolesecure  Gutfeld recalled how when they first met, Rickles blurted out first thing, "Are you a Jew?" You could easily picture it. And I always thought he was, but he said he's Catholic. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
