   RedWhiteBlue posted on Pet Peeves  OK do it's not a big deal but this new commercial of the red copper pan with Kathy whatshername talking is the one of the most annoying commercial on the air today. She does a horrible job with those fake inflections in her voice and the fake enthusiasms about her pan. She annoys the heck out of me...who thought that it was going to make people jump right up and buy that thing after listening to THAT! Sheeeeesh! OK, I'm done...for now....LOL.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  It seems to take an awful long time to ''vote'' on a reply on the mother page. I may vote on one...maybe two but then just give up. Do others have the same experience or is it just my computer that's so slow?

   Calvinesq  Yes. It is slow. However, if you click the "like" button you can close that window, and the vote will still register. In fact, you can vote for other posters at the same time, even if the first one has not been registered. It is slow, but manageable.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Computers &Tech Issues  So here I go again....Win 10 Updated/upgraded my computer and left my email and internet NOT the way they found it. WHY do they do that? I'm having a hard time reconstructing those pages!!! Makes me not accept any more changes from them. StormCnter gave me instructions once before and I LOST them! Bwah!HELP!

   Tulsa  I believe she tells people to turn off automatic updates. MS only puts them out monthly. I know you can search for monthly updates and pick and choose which ones to download, if any.

We both had to upgrade to win.10 as everything stopped working in win. 7..thx to MS.

I'm getting ads all over the home page and I have ABP enabled. I've reported it to ABP once. All that needs to be done to remove them is to click 'refresh' and they disappear. The ads are disgusting.

   Daisymay  I'm the last person to give advice on Computer stuff, but I can tell you that I finally couldn't take those nasty ads anymore, so I downloaded Firefox as my Browser. BOOM! Not a single ad! I'm happy to sign on to Lucianne again! Worked for me.

   StormCnter  Tulsa is right. I have had Microsoft updates turned off for a very long time. That prevents accidental upgrades I don't want. I'm running Windows 7, RWB, so I can't help you recover from Windows 10. I don't think you can roll the computer back to an earlier date because the system has been changed with the update to 10.
But if your question was about turning off updates, go to Control Panel and Windows Update. When it comes up, click on Change Settings from the menu on the left. When this comes up, Click on the little bar and from the menu, choose Never Check for Updates. Then click Ok and exit.
You can always go back and check for an update you need without allowing MS full access to your computer.

   Tulsa  I do want to say that we turned off downloads in Win 7 when MS was pushing 10 and Updates for MSSE stopped working, MS updates stopped working for Win 7, then Win. Live Mail in 7 stopped working.

The updates build on each other. And updates for Security and MS Office which included mail, Word and Excel are all packaged together. They could not be sifted out for download.

So instead of helping, Win 7 stopped working, which meant buying a new desktop and laptop with Win 10.

   StormCnter  I don't use MS Mail or Windows Firewall, but I do use Excel and Word without any problem with those programs from my blocked Windows updates. I did, however, have to abandon Mozy because its latest update wouldn't work without one particular Windows driver. The driver apparently couldn't be downloaded as a stand-alone. So, I cancelled Mozy and signed up with Carbonite for my huge backup requirements.

   Tulsa  We don't have a firewall as we're a whopping secure network of 2. I am amazed 7 is still working for you. I wish we had been able to keep it. The laptop lasted idea why.

10 wants to be my Momma. lol Our tech deleted all tiles. I turned off all notifications and deleted more things after the tech set us up. He did a great job. 10 isn't bad. It is overkill on everything and I resent MS forcing it on us. Cortena? is nothing but a link to Bing. Deleted that. The screen is plain and simple like Win. 7

If we had used the mail program on the web and paid for virus protection, we still lost MS Office. Rock/hard place.

Must use a card reader for pictures, so we bought an extra mem. card I can erase after each use...for show and tell to our peeps in South Carolina.

We like MS Mail on the pcs so we never have to sign in. MSSE is gone and replaced with Defender, which is free.

Always good to get your input.

   StormCnter  When my Win 7 finally succumbs, I may have a computer built instead of having to upgrade or buy a new one with Win 10. There's a local computer repair/refurbish shop with a very competent manager who insists he can build a better one for me than I can buy. I don't have enough know-how to build one myself, but every tech I have ever asked (no matter the employer ) has told me he/she built his/her personal computer. But, I don't have to think about it yet.

   Tulsa  That is an excellent idea. I have no doubt any pc tech would build their own.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Jokes  My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds … only 15 to go ...

Ate salad for dinner … Mostly croutons & tomatoes ... Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce ... And cheese ... FINE, it was a pizza ... I ate a pizza …

How to prepare Tofu:
1. Throw it in the trash.
2. Grill some Meat.

I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web ...

I don't mean to brag but … I finished my 14-day diet food in 3 hours and 20 minutes ...

A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it ...

Kids today don't know how easy they have it ... when I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel ...

Senility has been a smooth transition for me ...

Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed school? Me neither.

I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented … I forgot where I was going with this ...

I love being over 50 … I learn something new every day … and forget 5 others ...

A thief broke into my house last night … He started searching for money … so I woke up and searched with him ...

My dentist told me I need a crown … I said, “You bet, pour mine over rocks” …

I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day ...

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Jokes  Faster Flight?

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned
to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike
up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total
stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God,
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask
you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same
stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns
out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence,
thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know sh!t?"

And then she went back to reading her book.
sorry about the ''bad'' word.LOL

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  I hope this email I got is right...

The best explanation of why the Founders had unbelievable wisdom in designing the Electoral College.
It also illustrates that the Democratic Party does not represent the country, just the heavily populated east
and west coast mega cities which are out of touch with the vast majority of the country.

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
****************************** ****
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
****************************** ****
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens ) Clinton received
well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties, Trump won Richmond )
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those that encompass a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

   GO3  I think your numbers are good, because I saw something similar the other day, but I can't remember the source. Anyway, I agree; we can't have big blue cities dictating what's best for the country.

   GO3  I was wrong - maybe. AP says the numbers are Hillary 487 to Trump 2626. My project in the next few days is to count each state on NYTs election map. AP could be right, but I think Hillary's count is too high.

   GO3  I was wrong again. I went over the NYT election map here
in detail. By my count Hillary won 634 counties. That's still way lower than Trump, but certainly not 57 as the email says.
