Well folks the Democrats have finally lost it all. Even got all the ding bat celebrates doing commercials wanting the constitution ignored. And everytime Trump makes an appointment they go a little more bonkers.
Obama has managed to politicize every part of government, including our intelligence agencies. The Donald sure has his work cut out for him to clean (drain the swamp) all these lefties out of government.
No doubt about it folks, we elected the right person to get this country back to what we knew as the United States of America.
Of course, it is going to be so strange to see Obama leading all those demonstations down Penn ave. And demanding that safe zones be created for the snowflakes.

Jackie, believe me when I tell you that not all Americans are unhappy.
I am certainly not.

I received an email from Kelly, asking me to please copy and post the following message on Norm's B&T, Soda Shoppe and the Games Board.
Dear S&F members
It is over four months since I posted on seniors and friends, because of health issues. When I am able to return I cannot say, but in time I will post again if on a much reduced basis than I used to.
I now live in the United Kingdom in a community helping with health matters. Replying to members by emails is not possible at the moment for me because of these health matters and my inability to use voice recognition.
I am unable to access S&F as I have lost my username and password. If anyone has asked about me, I thank you.

Hal, while I may or may not agree with her or your post or even others here, I do not agree with the way posts are made if rude. Yes we all have issues of some type, and we seldom all agree, all the more reason to be considerate of others and especially if they are not here to defend themselves.

Well, I think JeanneP has every right to express how she feels. And a lot of what she says I agree with. Kelly hated to be disagreed with and he and I had some words over his thoughts and my thoughts on different matters. I have nothing to apologize for nor does he, should he ever desire to return to this forum. Yes, he as well as others have disabilities. Many on this forum have disabilities, including myself. Some from birth, others from old age and deterioration of bodies. That is life, like it or not.
At any rate, I don't think JeanneP's comments are cruel, just what she feels and I support her right to say it.

I tried that new web site but didn't care for all the little things it was showing. Maybe I don't know the right way of moving things around. Will just keep on old one on for now.
With Kelly, I don't think there is anything wrong other than he wasn't getting the attention he wanted from everyone. After all he posts what. 3000 post in 2 months. We all do less in years. Think he was thinking that when he asked or said something that everyone supposed to answer. Saying Goodnight. Goodmorning does not mean we all reply. That is not what these kind of Forums work like.
Also we have had many people drop out without knowing the reason. They just find different ways of communicating. Some of us even got E-M from him wanted to do it this way. Again we do that with very few people that we talk to daily in a Forum.
I don't think his medical was anything that would have him going into hospital for. Let just hope he is being kept busy doing other things. If he feels like coming back he will

Hi everyone. day.
MaryPage, just a few minutes ago Pat commented on how thankful she is to have her easy chair as can find comfort in it. It is motorized so will recline and go back to normal position with a switch on the side.
Larry, I can empathize. Hubby has spinal stenosis and cannot sit in a 'comfy chair' or on our 'comfy couch'. He is comfortable only in a hard backed chair. Epidurals and possibly, hopefully not, surgery are in his future.
Awful stuff, back and leg problems. In his case, comes from 50 years (and he's only 65) of working on cars. There's an 8mm of him driving a Crosley (!) when he was 10 or so.

DeeDee not coy, just being sarcastic. But most Liberals have no humor.

Oh poor Hal...
Sorry to see that you are still looking
at your life through the eyes of
That is really sad.
All I see in you is a very nice man,
who is a little insecure about what
other people think of him.

We all obtain different perspectives on what we watch on the telly. I sympathize with DeeDee's take on it.

Since Sunday, Sarah had been going downhill, not eating and lethargic but drinking a small bit and eliminating that small bit. Today I took her to the vet and her signs were poor. They did fluid and blood work, Xrays and ultrasounds. Her abdomen was full of blood and white blood cells so they did exploratory surgery.
Her liver had a tear in it and had blood and fluid leaking out. They have no idea what happened, nor do I. They took a small bit of the liver by the gall bladder and sewed up the tear but she simply wasn't coming out of the anesthesia and her signs were poor so we decided to let her go.
I already miss her so much.

The payments I have taken from my checking accounts are all utilities. Others, I authorize the bank to send checks and I write down all of the info they give me, especially confirmation number. All are on a one-time basis.
JeanneP, thank you for the information and Iâ€™ll look into it â€" or have Tom look for it. This is for a full screen.
Deedee, whenever Iâ€™ve renewed magazines, they have always extended my subscription from the end month. I have not had any trouble with renewals but I am discontinuing two subscriptions because it is getting harder and harder to read the fine print, also the white-over-gold that they sometimes use.

Larry, before Windows 10, when I would send something to the printer, the printer would come on and print. When I installed Windows 10, my printer would not work. Tom got it going by adding â€œCopy 1â€ to the name. Then I found I could not print individual labels; I could print an entire page, but not singles. With this new Window 7, it sends things to the printer, but I have to get up and turn on the printer. I can store stuff on the printer until Iâ€™m ready to really print it. Thatâ€™s my â€œprinter tale of woeâ€. I am having trouble with the computer in that the copy suddenly goes very small, so small you canâ€™t read it or much larger than necessary. Itâ€™s done both while typing these paragraphs.
I have more problems with my computing and printing equipment and those frustrate me no end!!!

Hi everyone. I have had a very frustrating couple of hours trying to get my laser printer to print what I want and not so to sleep all the time. What should be simple isn't anymore. Then the other Inkjet printer doesn't want to work. Our son will be over later this afternoon and I will see if I can get him to get them set up so when you send something to the printer it actually works. We had a very nice Sunday. Today I will go to a meeting in a little bit and then play it by ear. I don't have time to write more this morning as want to get through all of the discussion boards before I leave if I can.

Good Morning Everyone from the cloudy
but warm, Rocky Coast of Maine.
I went over this morning to Time Warner with my cable box in hand, and came home with it
still in hand.
But, they dropped my cable bill $75. That was enough for me to reconsider dropping
My son Paul was with me and he thought that I had made the right choice. If
I decide in a couple of months to get drop it again and save even more, I will do so.
The key the man said is to go over to they yearly are renegotiate ...
How about that!!!!

--Yesterday morning we had an unusual experience. Pat had turned off the TV and gone to the kitchen area when the TV came back on by itself. She tried to turn it off and couldn't and I had the same results.
--it sounds like you have made a wise decision to avoid the gardening this year.
--I could easily do with just a black and white printer but Pat often prints out things related to quilting and wants the color printing. I do not print out pictures.
--the animal kingdom often seems very cruel but it is nature way. I hope the baby eaglets survive and the parents have returned.
--Do you keep something with you to eat to get your blood sugar back up when you get that sinking feeling?

Morning Larry, I am just about to go out to do a little yardwork. I do mean little, my arthritis only allows for about an half-hour before my back starts giving me fits.

Good Morning, (almost afternoon,)
from the beautiful Rocky Coast, of Maine. Good weather ahead,
for the next 10 days. Getting warmer, sweater type weather predicted. Hooray!
My son (the computer Guru) is coming over to my home this week to get me set up
to go cable tv free. I have been fretting about it, and having him by
myside will insure that it all goes as smoothly as possible.
He actually used to work for the Time Warner Cable Co, so he knows
what he is doing, instead of me having to go it on my own.
All is well, here.
You all have a good day

I have no idea why they changed their payment policy.
It seems to me more and more companies are trying to pressure their customers into using direct payment from your bank account.
Quote from: angelface555 on April 15, 2016, 12:43:34 am
Deedee I had a similar problem with a credit card and ended up closing that account. Now I never use direct deposit or direct or automatic pay as both have issues I want no part of.

I hate Frontier, they were down late last night and just came back up a bit ago. Try calling? sure and sit on hold for 45 mins. and be disconnected and have to start all over. GRRRRRRR

Good morning. Hope it is a good morning wherever you all are.
Larry, Do you have a phone number for Amazon?

Gloria Vanderbilt and her son have really been hitting the TV a lot in the last few weeks. I have seen them on at least 4. Wonder why. Other than to push the book they wrote. Sure her life was different than most be some things we don't need to hear about it everyday. Always the same thing. I would just like to know what she did and still does in order to look that good.
They use to say if you lived a wild life you would die young. Didn't do that to her. She had to have been a drinker, smoker for years. Maybe if the library purchase the book I will read it. One day it will be a free one on our Readers.

Gloria, I do not knit now, but I am sure if I did, I'd have a cat at my yarn ball because he does like moving things. I am in a minority here as to the cat being outside, however, he is not allowed to run outside;

Again, the reason Anderson Cooper was disinherited was because he asked his mother to do so. He felt that he had enough of his own and did not need hers as well. I'm sure he told his mother that he appreciated the thought however. And that may be one of the reasons they are close.
He spoke of this with David Letterman after he first came out.
