   Gram77  Am watching the 5:30pm news and pictures from the Corpus Christy area. This is not foolish talk and someone crying wolfe. I think this hurricane is quite real.

   Tulsa  You are all in my prayers. Please be safe. Pls take care.

The reserves were ready to help yesterday... as soon as they can get in. And Gov. Abbott is doing all he can to help you.

May the Lord bless and help the volunteers get to the residents.

   Safetydude  Ok, so I'm going out on a limb here.
I don't know if the Governor called for a mandatory evacuation, or not.
If he did, and some people choose to ignore that order and now need rescuing why are we, the taxpayers, stuck with the tab?
A helicopter ain't cheap to run and if citizens put themselves in harms way, on purpose....

   StormCnter  The governor did not call for a mandatory evacuation. That is usually left to local officials who have on spot information. In some towns, the mayors did exactly that. In others, it was voluntary but encouraged. Houston, for instance, is a city of millions and most of them will not be in danger with the flooding, only inconvenienced. There's not a standard good answer in these situations and I agree with you that people who refused to leave shouldn't call on the taxpayers to rescue them.

   Tulsa  Emmylou Harris has a special on PBS 8/11. I only know her from Trio with Dolly and Linda, which I heard on my way to play bridge with a friend.

The song she does in this article is not my cup of tea. https://tinyurl.com/y95opxjd

   Wetenschapper  Really? I think she does quite an admirable job of it, if one ignores the underlying social-justice intimations. I've been a fan of Harris since the late 70's (my picture to left is more than a decade old! )and despite her, um, mature voice lacking some of the heart-tweaking nuance it had forty years ago, it's still quite competent.

   Tulsa  I don't believe I would like the song by anyone. I could not understand the words. It was sad sounding and slow.

I know her only from Trio and liked her enough to record the 2 hr special mentioned above. I hope you enjoy it.

   StormCnter  Tulsa, I downloaded it, installed it but it won't let me access Lucianne.com because of a certificate problem. I tried all the work arounds and then gave up. It was worth a try and I thank you for the suggestion.

   Tulsa  I'm in Brave as I type. Trying to sort all the set up info. I am not a tech. I successfully transferred favorites, etc. MicroS keeps trying to default to Edge. Fixed that. Had ads at Luci. Deleted all cookies...no ads. Do not know if this will hold or will work. But will let you and everyone know.

It may be working for me bc I'm in Win 10 and you are still using 7. I have no idea. After I downloaded I had to 'set up' download. I'm still learning and working on it.

   Tulsa  Storm, Luci's certif has been bad for so long I can't remember. I get that error message in FF, but not Edge and not in Brave. I just ignore the warning and log in. But to be blocked, I don't know what to tell you.

   StormCnter  I'm still working on it, Tulsa, uninstalling and reinstalling with different browsers. We'll see. I'd never gotten the certificate message before, but Brave wouldn't let me "ignore".

   Tulsa  I know you can do it. I lost all FF bookmarks trying to delete just one site...aaargh...and had to reload them. Took seconds. I don't know what I'm doing. Still no ads at Luci. There is a 'payments' page with this browser which I am ignoring. I think? it's optional.

There are things built into this browser, such as a flash player. It's much like FF basically to set up only there are fewer options as they are assuming you do not want cookies, or to be tracked or ads, if that makes any sense.

In order to get no ads at Luci, I am accepting 'no' cookies on the drop down Brave icon.

Things load much faster without ads. Also the ads are tied to malware. There is a short video on the Brave homepage. I watched it.

Also when I downloaded, a green screen slowly covered the FF icon. So it maybe building on FF. Then I went to downloads and dbl clicked and set up.

I need a nap. My hair hurts! lol...I'll check back

   Tulsa  Thx Lonestar Jack, glad it is working for others too. It's very similar to FireFox...just more built in which I like. Still learning what the browser can and can't do.

   StormCnter  Tulsa, I've been messing with Brave for a couple of days now and cannot get past the Certificate Error for Lucianne. Brave's Community forum indicates several people are having trouble with certificate errors for various sites. There is apparently no fix for it. I'll leave Brave installed, but I won't try to use it again for a while.

   Tulsa  That warning signing in has been there a very long time. I wrote Luis, but he never responded. Maybe if you write him, it will help. Every ID and password is in danger if Lucianne's certif is outdated.

I'm in Brave and I can login. I can login using Edge and there is no warning, but I get the warning using FF, but am still able to log in.

I'm going looking for the forum you mentioned. There is no help at Brave that helps...it's all tech talk in code. I have chosen no list for the adblock feature. It has to be preloaded??? There is no list for 'USA'. I'm not allowing any cookies in order to block ads and don't even know why that is working. ...but I'll take it until further notice.

I think? Brave is still in Beta testing. Or they are working out the bugs. That may be the same thing. This is over my head.
