I apologize if this was posted previously.....


This is just a beautifully written piece; and so true. Take a couple of minutes to read it. You'll be glad you did.
A WINTER FRIEND
This article is so befitting for all of us... take time to ponder... the last statement cannot be refuted:- 
 
I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL AND WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED THEN AND STARTED OVER, READING SLOWER, AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD... IT MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK.
So, please READ SLOWLY!
AND THEN IT IS WINTER
You know time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems like yesterday that I was young, just married, and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all those years went.
I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is... the winter of my life, and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those "older people" were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.
But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey... they move slower and I see an older person in myself now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me... but, I see the great change... Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so... now I enter this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last... this I know, that when it's over on this earth... it's over. A new adventure will begin!
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done... things I should have done, but indeed, there are also many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
So, if you're not in your winter yet... let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life, please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can TODAY, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!
You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life.. so, LIVE FOR TODAY and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember.. and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!
"Life" is a GIFT to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
Remember: "It is Health that is real Wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."
~Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Going out is good.. coming home is even better!
~You forget names... but it's OK, because other people forgot they even knew you!!!
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything.... especially golf.
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep."
~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..
~You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?".."when?"...???
~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless?!"
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~Everybody whispers.
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.
~But "Old" is good in some things:
Old Songs, Old movies ...
and best of all, our dear ...OLD FRIENDS!!
Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!"
Send this on to other "Old Friends" and let them laugh in agreement!

Once AGAIN, Microsoft installed a NEW Windows """UPDATE""" which resulted in leaving only 4 Microsoft related icons in the taskbar and deletion of  all of my Bookmarks.     Screen said "Welcome to the New Windows"

PHYLLIS....The webcam I go to first is the Harbor Lookout, which lists and tracks arrivals and departures for all the Duluth ship movements. Using that, I can switch to the Canal or Bridge webcams

RICK...........
Are you running Windows 10?  This morning I opened my computer to a screen saying it had been updated with the April 2019 update.
As a result.....all the program icons on the TASKBAR were eliminated except 3 from Microsoft (Edge, Mail and Store).
Bookmarks Bar was missing.
Worst of all,  Left-Click on a link no longer works....you have to Right-Click and chose 'Open link in a new tab".
It doesn't take long to have 20 tabs open at the top of your screen..
Just wondering if anyone else has run into these problems

A nostalgic stroll back in time to the birth of the World Wide Web.
I believe it will bring back memories for RICK and other tech-minded members.
I noticed that some of the slides were thought to be Ads and I had to turn my AD-BLOCKER off to view them.

Comment from Lindancer "I just wish I could go to page one and it would have just one day of posting Not have to go through a couple of days to get here where I want to write."

When you click on 'Unread Posts', it brings up a list of Forums.
Just to the left of the forum title is a box labeled 'NEW'.
If you click on that, it should take you to the 'latest' posts.
You could also click on the highest page number shown for the Forum.
Hope this helps.

When using Firefox, the Menu Bar is shown top left including File..Edit..View..etc
If you don't see that, Right-Click in the colored bar at the top...a menu appears and you can CHECK "Menu Bar".
This is the same suggestion Rick made previously.....

Jeanne....Which TOOL icons are you looking for?
