This week we’re recognizing…

All past Contributors Of The Week!

Over the recent years we’ve received several emails requesting we create a permanent badge to acknowledge those members who have been recognized in the past as Contributors of the Week.

So today I will be starting to add a Red Barn badge to the profiles off all active members who have been recognized as a POI COW.

Fogo: GPS, Walkie-Talkie, Flashlight And Backup Battery

I have been following few different devices that work with a smartphone to keep in touch without cell phone service. Beartooth, GoTenna, Gotoky, and Sonnet are a few of them. A bit ago I ran across the Fogo website online. It is a flashlight, with GPS, etc.

Hurricane Irma

I am evacuating due to Irma. Probably will be a delay in responding to inputs for my files. Hopefully it will only be for a few days.

Windows 10 start menu

If you are like myself, I do not like the start menu used in Windows 8 or 10.
I found two different start menus to replace the Windows one.
Try either one, but I find the Classic start menu is more like Windows versions from the past because it can be customized easily.

1.) Classic start menu which is free to use.

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

does anybody else wonder why ordinary things are difficult today

I bought 3 items at Costco, it was limit 2, oooops. So the third was not $5 off. No problem, I'll just return the one that was over the limit.

The person at the courtesy desk kept telling me, the computer shows there is a $5 coupon, that's why your refund has $5 deducted.
