Now I'm not one to complain, but....



So for a while the laptop has been doing strange things, one of which concerns Google.  Normally on Chrome I have the Google UK picture, and on the right hand side a link takes me to the next page where the 'Add-Ons' are found.  Now when I click a tab the Google page that appears is different, and the next page link on Google UK has gone.  The new page is not 'Google UK' but a Google page with no Google mail, images, +You link or indeed the email address as usual.  There is nothing aIong the base either, instead under the sign there are links to places I have been, none of which I use as I don;t trust this, and attempting to use the type an address in the address bar takes over.  What is this? Is there a way of fixing this?  I have run the anti bad guys stuff but none have worked so far.  This irritates me, and I am not one to complain.....


There is the usual fuss in the media concerning this appalling event.  It appears this took place last night when I was busy having a life.  As usual banal, trite melodies offered by perverts and weirdos won the day.  It is long since this vapid bilge ceased to be an opportunity for struggling singers and became a replacement for the psychiatric hospitals Thatcher killed off, but why do people watch it?  This freak show 'entertains two thirds of the European public, yet there is nothing there!  I am more and more convinced the end is nigh, when you see what won can I be wrong?

"You'll never get out of here alive!"

Once again I spent Saturday morning at the museum as nobody was available to work it.  Next week l, off my own free will and kindness, will be there on Saturday again.  You see I am so kind and caring gentle and sweet.  I was also knackered!  I did manage to persuade the boss to make up a short advert looking for volunteers for the museum to fill in the empty spaces, far too many are sick, dying or finding jobs, and sweet as she is this happened.  So I shoved them into three churches letterboxes as there are people there who will be available I am convinced.  As one of the churches has many older "cough" peoples there will be historical knowledge also.  We will see!


Hours I have spent looking for my family.  So far none have been in prison but several have disappeared, if only one or two others would join them?   This has helped with finding dead soldiers but there is so much to do and I have hours of work to do to get through it all.  This and watching the football takes up so much time!  Of course dithering, falling asleep and wandering to the shops to obtain reduced price goods has also been required, the falling asleep bit being most popular.  However uncomplaining I battle on, my day ahead is planned out, nothing will deter my study, rise at six and plod on till midnight!  But I ask, what happened to my man George....?

Do you mean your family members have literally disappeared or just disappeared from the records? I imagine it must be the latter. That is usually a sign to check the death records I suppose, but people can emigrate and do all kinds of stuff
I have always wondered how genealogical researchers on "Who do you Think You ARe" find out all the amazing things they do.

Jerry has told me that you are one of the most treasured museum exhibits in all of Great Britain, and I can certainly see why. Oh, and I cannot thank you enough for the times you have left him speechless.

The only remedy I can suggest is that you uninstall Google Chrome and install Firefox. I read just last week a research that reckons Firefox is better than Google Chrome, anyway. I've used Firefox for many years; actually I think I've only ever used Firefox. Just a thought...

I've never watched Eurovision...only the few glimpses on the news broadcasts, but that's it. It's never really "grabbed" me.

I'll have to look up the phone books to see if there is any "Adullamite/s" listed. They could be distant relatives of yours who pinched a loaf of bread and were sent off the colonies!

I could do with some of my husband's family disappearing...

jenny, I think it is because Ancestry cannot get its grubby hands on all the Scots info! They keep the 1911 census to themselves to stop ancestry getting all the cash. Quiet right too, but it means I have to look at them, and that costs money.

Arlynda, Jings! Two of them now!!!! Tell that brute I am NOT an exhibit at the museum!!!!

Lee, I use Firefox also, they both have advantages but something is not right and annoying me.

Fly, For a small fee this could be arranged.....

That's been the case for about 6 months. It's the new "New Tab" layout. If you press Alt-Home it will fix it, but you need to do it each time.

OR

try this fix

There's no harm in the new layout really. I quite like seeing my regular haunts.

Sheila, Thanks for that! I had found nothing re this! Why do they not announce changes rather than just dump them on us? Especially an idiot like me? Bah!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Methinks you are the who needs fixed!

Adullamite said...

Jerry, Let me think about that one.....
