   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  Suggestions for your viewing pleasure. Comedy, SciFi, Action
I like Hugh Grant. Music and Lyrics was fun.

Watched Oblivion with Tom Cruise….never saw the near ending or the real ending coming. I was entertained. No nightmares either

Hanging Up looking like fun.

Watched Unstoppable with Denzel Washington and Chris Pine...action packed, but no nightmares. I can not watch horror or anything anxiety producing. I will not watch.

These are cut and paste from 3 places. I can not tell from links if I have the correct ones anywhere near the movie titles, but there is enough info for you to search if you are interested. I did the best I could. Why the difficulty I can not explain.

We've already discussed Nobody's Fool and IQ which are on my list to see eventually.

   StormCnter  Thank you, Tulsa. I have seen "Unstoppable" and I'll pass on the Cruise film, but "Music and Lyrics" looks entertaining.

   MeiDei  I saw Music & Lyrics - remember very little about it, but viewed it in full - so it must have been entertaining.

   Tulsa  Grant has some age on him in this one and I think he looks wonderful. Watch during the credits as there are several paragraphs as to what happened to difference characters. I think the man plays himself. I like him. I will watch it for the second time tonight will I restock things to view.

I don't care for Cruise either, but/and I also watched Mission Impossible 3 last week. Desperation will do that to a person! I recorded several things I would not have normally watched as I don't watch the O's. Regular programming is off for 3 long weeks.

That's a lot of time to fill. My attention span is more 30 minutes to 1 hr, so I prefer tv shows to movies. And that is me recording everything I watch and fast forwarding thru commercials.

I don't know if any of you good people are the least bit interested, but there are two shows I recommend. Restored by the Fords (a brother and sister ) on HGTV. (She is the best decorator I have ever seen. ) Fresh. Different. Modern. Her favorite color is white.

And Restored on DIY with Bret Waterman(sp ) who is a tall drink of water. He's a preservation specialist who wears a cowboy type hat, bermuda shorts and black ankle socks and loves his job. Has a great crew and does incredible work. Cutest personality. He cracks me up. 'Dood!' or 'It a big improvement.' Right?'

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Email to Mrs. Luci and response to me:
'So they(ads ) are not your doing? Um, I mean to say…they are not there with your permission? I will certainly post that at the connection lobby.

Ldotters think you have approved them or are allowing them for pay. None of us have any way of knowing.

Thank you for responding and so promptly too.'

Respone: 'Oh, my no. We hate them and complain to our tech people all the time. If anything, it costs us money because we lose readers.

Please tell our Connection friends it is a form of theft and we hate it too.
Best, Lucianne.'

   Tulsa  s/b Response beginning of #4
Yesterday at 16:58 EST .

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Be advised. I wrote Lucianne and thanked her for removing the ads. I just heard from her and she said:

'You are welcome. Some people get them. Some don't. They are so annoying.'

I asked Mrs. Lucianne a few questions about the ads and if she has the time to respond I will post her response here.

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Kono.

That is Miss Luci's email. Direct your comments about the ads to her. She is the only one who can do anything about them. I don't know a soul that like ads. And there have been many complaints here about them. I have no idea if Miss Luci takes the time to read here or not.

The ads were never here for a decade +/-? Then they were here and then they disappeared. Now they are back. I can't explain it.

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Can anyone help Kono? See below. He/She is using Brave and getting ads intermittently.
I can't find a reason. Phooey? Lonestar Jack? Any Brave user.

I'm in Win. 10. Brave is supposed to work for Windows and Mac. TIA

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  I woke up thinking about the Cher picture. Pls see my note. It may have rolled to the next page. 99% of the celeb. pictures we see are airbrushed. That one was not. That in itself is strange.

   Gram77  Interesting, Tulsa. Wonder what others might think based on your thinking?
February 13 at 16:57 EST .

   Tulsa posted on Main Page The Lobby  Ldotters. If you have a problem with the board, you need to contact Mrs. Lucianne or Luis at the contact addresses direct on the home page.

The information about the Brave browser for NO ads has been on the Lobby Wall and on the Computer and Tech wall for months and months.

I checked and HopeandGlory has no email address under profile, so unless H&G checks back the message below posted by Phooey will never be seen.

I don't know what else to do to help get word out and about about this. If anyone has a suggestion, pls comment here. Sincere thanks and God Bless America and each of you.

Recorded The Intern last night and just watched a clip. My kind of movie.

These pertain to tv series: Elementary returns 5/1/18 YES! My favorite show on TV and 26 episodes at that. I'm elated! Ransom was canceled by CBS, but Season 2 has been ordered. This one is about an international hostage negotiator. Good cast and show. 2018 return date tba. CBS is also remaking Cagney and Lacey and Magnum, PI.

   StormCnter  I've seen that film and, like you, enjoyed it. De Niro doesn't appear in bad movies, I think.

   Gram77  Saw The Intern today. I don't know the name of the gal but she is so cute and very good and DiNero was really great. Good movie for a rainy day.

   Tulsa  She's Anne Hathaway, Gram. She was in The Devil Wears Prada and many, many other movies. I watched The Intern this evening and enjoyed it thoroughly. Di Nero was perfect.

   Tulsa posted on Movies & Reviews  From a Phantom Thread review:

Suffice it to say, everything that seems unusual in the moment makes perfect sense after a while, but even then, it may be up to the audience to decide whether Phantom Thread is the greatest or most horrifying movie romance of the year. You won’t know for certain until you see it for yourself, and give it a good, long think afterwards.

Interested in seeing it. I am not.

   StormCnter  Tulsa, after your comment, I looked up this film and found a review in Variety that is a little more informative. I have a hard time warming up to Daniel Day Lewis, so I probably won't see this one either. Thanks for the tip.

   Tulsa  FYI, Satellite Direct (DirecTV guide ) arrived yesterday. Lady Bird and Darkest Hour and others are On Demand the end of February.

I believe the Vanity Fair article may have been the first article I read. I 'feel' bad ju ju concerning that film and others. Can not watch 'Billboards'. Trailer language was filthy and totally unnecessary, imo.

   Tulsa posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Kono, I download Brave a year + ago. My screen looks very different than what you describe. I don't have 3 dots. I don't have a payment ? tab anything like it. I was getting a make Brave your default browser when I opened it and I clicked on the on/off icon and deleted that little window.

It does seem when I first downloaded there was a payment option tab at the top. I think I right clicked and deleted it.

I can not think of anything else to help at the moment. I wish you no problems fine tuning this browser. It's an easy one, even for me. Long may be browse ad free!

   Kono  I had hoped paying fifty bucks a year to the bandwidth beast would be enough to browse ad-free here. It's more than enough for many other sites, and I still don't pay them.

Perhaps I'll just stop visiting sites that relentlessly ad-harass their readers (or give up the increasingly-unbearable internet, altogether ).

   Kono  And then as suddenly as ads started showing up in my Brave browser window, it stopped. Sorry for reacting prematurely...

   Tulsa  The DirecTV site requires I turn on 3rd party cookies to browse. They are under 'shields' btw and also under 'edit/settings/shields'.

I thought I reversed it when I left the site. I clicked Luci and had ads. Argh!. At Luci I clicked the Brace icon and turned off the cookies and clicked reload at the bottom. It happened twice more- ads. So I went to Edit,settings, shields and found the problem. I had missed one box. I had not reversed the cookie thing.

Just missed it entirely. No ads. I happens when I'm in a hurry. I totally agree with you about ads. They drive people away. I record everything on tv and FF thru ads.

Tip. I have one solitaire game(in Win. 10 ) that has flashing ads down the side. Flashing for crying out loud! I cut a narrow piece of black paper from junk mail and I tape it on the screen when I play that game. It's bliss. Otherwise I would have to delete the game.

Best wishes, Kono.
