   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  I'm having a difficult time bringing up articles on the mother page of Lucianne. Is anyone experiencing the same? I click on an article and the page goes blank. I've halted the adblocker, etc. Is it just me?
12 hours ago .




   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  I finally solved my problem with getting this website to open/not open up for me. When I have AdBlock turned on I cannot get on this site. As soon as I turn it off I 'm all set. Odd! But I'm glad I finally solved the mystery. Yay for me. LOL
same thing was happening on the mother site. I could not get my searches for my ''replies'' when AdBlock was turned on. Ar soon as I pause it....it returns my replies. Though you might want to know.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  Today's Bible Lesson . . .

In today’s world with President Trump getting hit daily, I decided a little Bible Lesson might be appropriate.

Remember what Jesus said: 'Goats on the left, sheep on the right' (Matthew 25:33 ).

Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat. He did and filled the boat with fish. John 21:6 (NIV ) ... He said, "Throw your net on the
right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were
unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

"Origin of Left & Right?

I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right"

and Liberals are called the "left".

By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible: Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV ) - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.

It surely can't get any simpler than that.

Spelling Lesson:
The last four letters in American......... I Can.

The last four letters in Republican........ I Can.

The last four letters in Democrats........ Rats. End of lesson! ...

Test to follow on November 6, 2018.

Remember, November 2018 is to be set aside as Rodent Removal Month.

Please share this Bible Lesson with all your friends and email buddies to help achieve that goal.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  On the mother page, can anyone do a 'search' on articles or am I the only one that can't get any results on that? I was looking for an article I commented on but I can't get it brought back. Anyone?

   StormCnter  RWB, don't use more than one word in your search. You can search a keyword from the title or the first paragraph such as "attack" or "fusion". You can usually have good results by searching the author's surname Or you can search for yourself if you posted the article. Type it in just as it appears RedWhiteBlue. If you still have trouble, email me and I'll search for you.

The search engine can't handle apostrophes such as O'Neil and it can't handle more than one word.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  I use Firefox for internet use. All was going well foryears and all of a sudden it will not stick with the homepage that I selected. It keeps bouncing to some wierd page. I looked at the tutorial that mozilla has about this and of course they talk as itf if I understood what the heck they are talking about. These gooky writers need to get out of the cloud and live on this planet for a while. Also, why is there not a much simpler fix to a problem they obviously messed up on.
Anyone have a VERY simple and easy fix for this thing. Of course....I have Windows 10 (UGH! and it keeps pushing me over to CHROME. It really takes a lot of work to set up things the way you want and like them so I really don't like to change things around.
Seeking help AGAIN. thank you in advance.

   StormCnter  RWB, I had a problem with that for a few days, it bounced to a music page. But, I have Windows 7 and my fix might not match yours. I'll do a little research and get back.

   StormCnter  This is on the Firefox answer page:
"Open a tab with the web page you want to use as your home page.
Drag and drop that tab onto the Home button on your toolbar.
Click Yes to set this page as your home page."
Are those the instructions you are trying to follow? And if so, where do you get confused?

"Open a tab with the web page you want to use as your home page.
Drag and drop that tab onto the Home button on your toolbar. (when I do that the window switched to that site. )
Click Yes to set this page as your home page." I don't have that option to click YES
Are those the instructions you are trying to follow? And if so, where do you get confused? No they are not the instruction ... and when I tried these instructions none of it is what you describe. I guess Win 10 works (not works! ) differently. And just as I was doing these instruction there was an so-called update to Firefox and things are looking different AGAIN! SIGH! Thanks so much for your help. I will keep trying.

   Tulsa  Storm, RWB is correct. Nothing in 10 is where it was in 7. Things have been eliminated althoghter. Things have been consolidated. Things have been renamed.

I had an 'update' this am and 'bookmarks' were replaced with 'other bookmarks'. I was doing laundry, freezing stew beef and thinking bad thoughts about FF. lol

Thankfully The Suit calmly read help and found the shortest shortcut to the closest thing to normal. It's still not as it was, but it will do. I was ready to forsake FF and use Edge which I have set to my liking or Brave, ditto on settings to my liking.

I liked Ff as I prefer to browse in private. Which means I open FF with a right click, select a website and
surf/read. FF has complicated what was a very good browser unnecessairly. Do not like the update.

I'm rattled. Excuse typos and misused words.

   StormCnter  What a mess! I'm sympathetic, y'all, but I have no solutions, since my Win7 is different. I will nurse my four year old computer probably until both of us die rather than get a new one with 10 installed.

   Tulsa  RWB. This 'seems' to be the answer. You decide. I seriously suggest you save the link and read all before making changes.

Good luck.

Oh and I deleted the Chrome browser when I was forced into Win. 10. Just delete it and you can not be forced to use it. I also deleted Cortena?....that thing that wanted to be my Momma!

   RedWhiteBlue  OK, has anyone gone from Win10 back to Win7 with these easy instructions? It looks easy enough but i'm so afraid anymore with these technologies and i'm afraid I'll lose stuff, etc. You know the story. LOL. So has anyone tried this method? I" needed to get a new computer cuz I got that dreaded blue screen last month. So we signed up with the geeks to try and recover my old stuff from the my computer and put it on the new one. Well, I can't find too much of it and my new computer looks so different that it makes me feel uncomfortable.

   RedWhiteBlue  OOOPS, I forgot to paste the instructions! LOL

Go to start, click on settings, then the update & security icon,then the recovery button, go to windows 7 or 8.1 what ever you had hit that. Then hit Get started.

   Tulsa  No. I recovered from hating Win 10 in a week. I had our tech remove everything I didn't want on the desktop and the laptop. I had him fine tune both. He transferred all our favs., our address book, our emails. Then I messed with it and deleted things until I had it like I wanted it.

I never have to mess with it now. I never even think about it, I just use it, which is a massive relief after the mess Win 7 turned out to be.

Win 7 is not receiving updates ...not for the system or security updates to protect it and has not been for a long time. Why lose a new machine to an unsupported program?

We even purchased Office 365 and shared it. It can be shared on 5 devices, 5 times. So for $99 it was a deal. It cost hundreds of dollars to by Outlook, Excel, Word and 2 other things plus, which we always buy for just the two of us.

The problem I had today was a browser update and had nothing to do with Win. 10. Win 10 is basic stuff. It is far less complicated than Win. 7. All the bells and whistles are junk and easily deleted. I missed the games...Freecell, Hearts, Chess, etc. but I found 2 out of 3 at the windows store without ads and simply tape up a piece of paper to cover the ad on the 3rd game. ...More than 1 way to skin a cat, as they say.

Just buy Win 10, get it right and forget it. Just my opinion and I was livid at the prospect of being forced to do it.

   StormCnter  I'm happy with Win7. I've always had the MS updates turned off, so I don't get the installations I don't want. I'm not afraid of Win10. I know how to clean out the c**p that comes with a new computer and I know how to transfer my files. But I've heard too many complaints about 10. I'll get it when I have to, but not until then.

   RedWhiteBlue posted on Main Page The Lobby  Well, my computer caught the dreaded blue screen and I totally lost everything and had to buy a new 'puter. Now I'm in the process of recreating everything I had on it. I'll never be able to do it but I'm gonna try. Everyone kept asking if I backed my 'puter up on the cloud or somewhere...NO! And I wouldn't know how to. Does anyone here do that ...and how ?
A few months ago I lost the ''homepage'' to my cell phone and lost everything there also.....same question was asked of my....do you back everything up? NO. have no idea about that. Had to buy a new cellphone and am still trying to recreate everything on there. I guess my advise to all, including myself, is to back up everything {?} as soon as we figure out how. Anyone know how?

   GO3  Coming from a non-IT expert, but who has used many different systems over the decades, this is what my experience is:

- I don't use a back up service for windows based systems, nor do I use the cloud. A USB flash drive, portable hard drive, or CD will work just fine for your data. It just requires a set routine to back it up. As far as any applications you added, hopefully you have an account to go to the website and recover those such as my Witopia VPN or MS Office 360.
- My iPad will back up routinely. I always check though that it's being done, especially in an area with flaky web service.

That's all I have to offer. Hope it helps.

   StormCnter  I'm sorry this happened, RWB. That's a real bummer. GO3 is right. The type of backup device you choose depends on how much data is involved. The little flash drives are inexpensive and will hold a lot. An external drive costs more, but has larger capacity. I have a huge amount of data in my computer, so I have backed up to "the cloud" for several years. I used Mozy for a long time and now use Carbonite. I also have a cabinet full of external drives from years past. I'm pretty paranoid about losing my stuff.
Flash drives and external drives attach to a USB port on your computer. It just slides right in. An external drive attaches with a USB cable.

Are you sure everything is gone from your blue-screened computer? Windows has an automatic backup feature and if anything has been retained, a tech might be able to retrieve something.
Here's an article from PC Magazine about backing up. Skip past most of the unhelpful stuff at the beginning of the article and get down to the descriptions and photos of flash drives and external drives.

   StormCnter  One more thing, RWB: Whichever device or method you choose for future backups, you should have two devices so you can alternate the backups. If one fails for any reason, you have another recent backup. I would recommend backing up once a week or at least twice a month. Mine backs up continuously with Carbonite.

   Tulsa  Several ersions of Windows ago, I learned to print the contact list, ie, my address book and I filed it away.

How to is under help in your mail program. We currently have Outlook in MS Office 365. The Suit insists. He doesn't like going to the web and signing in to check email. All you incoming and outgoing and addresses are there btw.

I never learned how to print a list of favorites, aka bookmarks, but that would be helpful to have also.

I believe MS backs up the pc/laptop, but backup is above my pay grade. We usually replace before we lose data. The exception being MS killing Win. 7.

   GO3  With Firefox you can export your bookmarks/favorites to a flash drive or other portable media to recover them or simply to find a page for reference later.
