Thank you for my hearts!

Very nice!

Suddenly, I am not allowed to recommend a post.

I don't know what has happened. This has coincided with our computer screen suddenly flipping from white background with blue/black type to black background with yellow/white type. Suddenly, when I click on that little button to recommend a post, nothing happens.

Drivers in the South: Think of making your car tiptoe on these icy roads!

Play that Sugarplum Fairy music from classical music in your heads as you drive. tink tink tink tink tink tink da da da da da da dadadadada!
SLOW DOWN! Think of letting the car TIPTOE along the road. And steer INTO the skid just slightly to regain control of the car.
I drove many times on such roads in Northern Illinois. You can do it. Just possess thy soul in patience.

Oh, and before you go outside, make sure you have tucked your shirt into your pants in back! That icy wind just roars up your back if you don't do this. Pretend you are an Arctic explorer or something. If you need to stay awake, you can suck one of those coffee bags. I used to have a 40 minute drive in the dark both ways.

You can do this. Just breathe and enjoy the sparkles on the snow.

Something weird has happened to me twice now.

I was in DU, logged in. Suddenly, I was kicked out. I had to go through the whole rigmarole to get back to DU. Then it said I was not logged in. So I tried again and again to log in, but it kept showing me a screen with a bunch of talk about cookies. Then I just went to DU as if I had not received the message about being logged in. After I went to 2 pages, suddenly I got a message that I could not log in because I was already logged in. I am not complaining; I just figure that maybe I should let you guys know.

Today, I am getting more NOT SECURE messages.

Today, I have noticed something new on DU. That little lock suddenly changes to "Not Secure" when I click to open some DU discussions. It happened when I clicked on the one about Trump and the Pediatricians.

I don't mean when I clicked to open the video; I have not yet done that. This also happened on the discussion about Trump finally wearing a mask and on the discussion about Roger Stone and Trump's Banana Republic. And several others. I just thought maybe I should mention it to you guys, just in case. Sunday morning and all.

I have been getting "Not Secure" messages up in that little line with the star.

Recently, when I am reading threads on DU, sometimes I have noticed little "Not Secure" messages up in that little line with the star, instead of the little black lock that is supposed to be there. I always immediately click out of that thread and start over in Latest Threads, and it goes away. I am not computer savvy, being a 72 year old bookworm. Maybe it is just a common little glitch? Anyway, I thought perhaps I should mention it to other DU people.

Four kind people have given me hearts! Thank you, everyone!

,Hey, you guys! What happened on Georgia Avenue tonight?

Something happened on Georgia Avenue tonight, just about 6:30 pm! My husband and I were just returning home from Silver Spring, after visiting our daughter, her husband, their 6 year old daughter, and our brand new grand daughter. A police car came screaming behind us, hell bent for leather! Later, we found him planting flares to block the road. We had to take a detour through back roads to finally get back to Georgia Avenue just in time to reach Route 70 to get back to Frederick, about an hour and a half later than expected. Something big happened there. A long stretch of Georgia Avenue was blocked off!
