   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  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. : )

   Phooey  I'm happy for you Gram. However, poking around the internet can get someone in a world of hurt.
God bless you Gram77... you have been through a lot the last few years.

   Gram77  It is a book style that I like and I am now hooked. I am betting when every one and everything comes together I will be surprised.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Dear God, woke up to the mass shooting in Vegas! Why is every one so angry?

   Surfhut  Dear Gram, I have many answers to your question rolling around in my mind. Can't really articulate them well right now as information is still coming in. One thing I DO know right now is that everyone isn't so angry. Most of us are not so angry. My prayers continue for our country, our President, and now the family of those killed or wounded.

   Safetydude  Forget anger or motive, there is such a thing as evil in the world.
Now all the talking heads are going to spend the next several news cycles examining the killers psyche instead of grieving for the dead and their loved ones.
The dead perp is still being referred to as 'the suspect'.
Go figure.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I heard of read somewhere, who knows, that James Woods was quite difficult to work with. I for one always liked his work.

   MeiDei  I checked out a few websites re: difficult stars and didn't find Woods among them. Brando, Baldwin, Bale, Crowe, Slater among others - yes & quite a few "ladies" but no Woods. Then I was more specific and found this (& several websites )

   Richdet  James Woods is under siege by the Left all the time, because of his open conservative views and his effective criticism of Hillary Clinton et al on his Twitter feed every day. The article posted above is dated within weeks of the election, and frankly once I saw the name "Lisa Bloom" (Gloria Allred's daughter ), I checked out. Her name alone signals "balderdash ahead." More fake news.

Woods strikes me as a very intelligent (and snarky, which I like, and his critics, as manifested here, can't handle ) and fundamentally decent bloke. I admire how he stands up to so much heat. Can't be easy in his profession, and probably has cost him work. Tip of me hat to Mister Woods.

   MeiDei  She may be banned (? ) from posting but not reading, in which case she must be happy for the remarks. I wondered how she made out during the hurricane.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  My humble apologies for any remarks I have made about the Hurricane Irma and my 5 days of no power. I watched lots of hours covering Puerto Rico and Mexico. That is truly a tragedy and I need to remember that.

   HopeandGlory  Gram, you've been through a lot of stress with Irma, wondering if you'd have a home to come back to . . . so, no apologies necessary.

   StormCnter  I agree with Hope. I would do plenty of complaining if I were without power for even a few hours. Let's join in prayer for those who are facing such awful hardships now with the quakes, hurricanes, flooding along our own coasts, in the Caribbean and in Mexico.

   MeiDei  There's always someone worse off than we are & there's nothing wrong with recognizing your own loss - it's yours. God gives us only what He knows we can handle, sometimes it takes us a while to see & accept that. I'm sure we're joined in prayer for those you've mentioned & in the future for others.

   MeiDei  What I meant to say was - God graciously answered our prayers for you, let us trust Him to guide & protect those in Mexico and the Atlantic islands & coastal areas as well, & comfort those less fortunate.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  It takes all kinds to make our world. Our park has a branch post office here and I was picking up my mail when I over heard a super obnoxious snow bird spouting off to any one who would listen that we did not have a hurricane. I scrammed while I could still keep my mouth shut and headed home. Wonder how he explains the mobile homes here that have been seriously damaged?

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Being shut in a motel room for days moves one to read. So, I read the Orphan Train and I really liked it. I was very curious as to see how the author would end the book. I personally thought she did a good job, especially with the visit to the museum. Can't wait for other opinions.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hi All! Came home to a whole house. For Hubby and I, the toughest part was dealing with no power for 5 days, especially the sleeping. When we saw those homes in our park that did not escape damage we were very sad. Makes one wonder why we sustained no damage and others close to us did. Most of the damage is at homes of owners who are snow birds. That can't be easy. Well, it's good to be home and listen mother nature.....this is enough!

   Safetydude  Home safe and sound after leaving on Sunday. only one big hiccup; after passing through PC Beach I headed east to
intercept I-75. Big mistake; no gas. I made it to Wildwood and that was it. I had to stay there Monday night and was able to fill up around ten the next morning. There was gas but no power. Once I filled up it was an easy ride into North Port.
There was minimal damage to our community and , best of all, none to our home.
Thank you all for your concern and thoughts.
