I don't know if you need Brave, it's fast , secure and has adblockers. I use on desktop and phone for that speed.

 

Passwords I'm slightly paranoid 500 30-character passwords, and use manager that's part of my security package, I'm paying for it. Don't like saving passwords in browser, even Safari.

 

Vision had cataracts, new lenses in my eyes. I blew up my fonts on cellphone.

 

Settings>Accessibility>
Display and Text size>Large font🤣. And chose my happiness point for reading without glasses.

 

Appetite is still hit or miss, can eat an entire cheesecake and still lose weight. Still 60 pounds lighter but, have kept 15 pounds on, since March.

 

I miss my extra padding, like a bear for warmth during hibernation or winters.Taking something for appetite and aches.

 

Still dizzy, still seeing doctors and no joy or answers.15 months of the same bs.

Time to play on woodpile, 68* and sunny.

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this cool and over cast morning on this Sunday morning in October 2019.

This morning brings some football withdrawal as the Packers do not play until Monday night. UW Madison keeps rolling on with a Super Defensive that has held 4 teams scoreless. 

Wisconsin’s football team is good this season — like really, really good — but much of the focus has been on running back and Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor. And that’s understandable.

But the Badgers’ defense has been practically impenetrable and is the best in the nation. The defense entered Week 7 ranked No. 1 in both average points against (5.8) and average yards per game allowed (178.6), and it seems likely to remain at the top of those two categories going into Week 8.

The latest victim of Wisconsin’s dominating defense was Michigan State, which lost, 38-0, in Madison on Saturday. It was the Badgers’ fourth — 4TH! — shutout of the season, and they didn’t give up points through the first 10 quarters of their schedule. They also have not yet trailed in a game.

Perhaps the most absurd stat, however, is that Wisconsin has allowed the same number of touchdowns this season as its defense has scored. It’s four, which is wild.

Hoping everyone has a great week ahead and restful night's sleep.

Hi folks. Finally some rain for us here in the dust bowl.  Sometimes we do not get rain till late in November and then it just keeps raining until summer.  I am still struggling to keep up some semblence of a normal life, not really succeeding.  Dogs are well, mom is well and I am just tired.

 

@Frozenoem   Sounds like your appetite is OK at least.   Curious about  the different browsers you are using on iphone.  I am only using Safari  mostly because of saved passwords.  Do I need Brave?   I also need glasses, can hardly see stuff on my phone!   That means the eye doctor and I cannot get there too easily, exam takes a while.

I know I'm late been occupied, tests 🤬, 63* and cloudy.

 

@n566192l 

 

Been thinking about your inability to PM and read this bit of n AARP help files, a place I haven't been since maybe 2002-3.

 

Thought maybe you should check your setting, they're illustrated on the page.

 

 The fact that you can post in this group suggests it may just be a setting needs to be tweaked.

And on that cheery note I'm ravenous and need to call for takeout.

Good morning to everyone here on the Front Porch on this Friday morning October 2019! It is cold, windy with into the early afternoon. There is a good chance of frost tonight in low areas. 

We are looking forward to going to Young Frankenstein this evening with friends at the Preforming Arts Center at one of the local high schools. They will have 3 other plays over the next 6 months. We have always enjoyed going to live performances go back to when we were in college and saw live performances of singing groups like Peter, Paul and Mary. 

Wishing you all a restful and enjoyable weekend.

Admit I'm lazy on posting links, still do copy/paste bit, easy on Windows or iOS iphone.

 

Might be capable of doing on Androids (don't know) only recover or hack the dang things.

 

Slap your digit down on address bar in browser, copy highlights, paste in new window for AARP or whatever web site. Then continue with life.

 

I tend to have many browsers on my phone, and pc. Google chrome allows multiple tabs for browser.I'm always testing the newest whiz bang browser or app for people/customers/friends.

 

@MsStretch 

Thanx stretch I'm just not Android proficient, unless rooting .Kinda like macOS hacking at terminal mode.Or Windows from a command prompt.🤣

 

60* and sunny for the moment, firewood is gaining and last night I was happy had supplies on hand 33* dang.

 

Nice and toasty in house, burning old bills and firewood.

 

Depending upon moments of lucidity (new med's) May be back on Friday/Saturday, still feel like Iron Butterfly.

 

Which is something to add to my iTunes, as soon as I find the right hard drive.

 

Enjoy all

Froze

MsStretch,

I decided not to post my local drama on the Morning Roll Call. I did share the link through messaging.  Thanks for sharing the link about the diamonds.

@n566192l , I did see the story about the 2 diamonds. Extraordinary!

 

Did the method I told you for posting links not work?  I am coming at you from Android tablet, so let's try this again.  I tapped on Share icon for an article.  Options include message, mail, etc.  I chose Copy To Clipboard.  (Or, depending on Android version, it may say Copy Link or similar language.)  Next, I am here at Front Porch.  I long-press where to place link, like here and tap on Paste.

Voila!  There it is!

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this Thursday morning in October 2019. 

We are looking at a cooling period over the next few days with some rain.  We are not expecting to get the snow they are getting from Colorado Colorado North to the Dakotas. 

Hoping everyone is having a great day.

Greetings,

Did anyone else see on the News, where they found a diamond inside of a diamond. ? The story is just great and so is nature. I think this is something special. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your day. 

Sunny and cool here. If anyone can help me out with posting the details about the diamond I would appreciate it. 

Thanks Nancy
