    the only way I can think of to stop these is to set myself as no mail on this site.

    I don’t think that will work, anyhow.  The email settings appear to be about those notifications generated by forum participants and not those generated by password change requests.



    forms for what?

    Any online forms.  In Emily’s case, the one used to register for a Gmail account.

    Some online forms are so long that if you spend any time away from it, it ends up timing out, and you have to start it over again.  Some are broken up into smaller chunks, having you save your progress before proceeding to the next page.  Some are just annoying and not user-friendly.


    I had to get a COVID test as well, Cassandra.  Wednesday morning, after a week of experiencing some intestinal difficulties, I called the doctor’s office.  They told me that, since my problem was a symptom of COVID, I would have to be tested before seeing the doctor.  I had no other symptoms.  So, a nurse met me in the parking lot and swabbed me.  Given my acute sinus issues, it was quite uncomfortable!

    I’m happy to report that the test came back negative.  Hubby and I were almost positive that I didn’t have it, but we understand the need to protect those who care for us in these strange times.

    Howdy, neighbor!  Greetings from Colorful Colorado, Marcilena!  This is a small, diverse, and friendly group of women from around the world.  I hope you enjoy your time with us.


    On a side note, I just selected Suicide Crisis as my charity for UK’s AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.co.uk).  In case you haven’t heard of Smile, Amazon donates .5% of all your purchases to the charity of your choice.  That can really add up if you purchase a lot from Amazon and others choose the same charity.  For instance, in the US, I chose the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) International.  I just received the following notification from them:

    This is your quarterly AmazonSmile donation notification to inform you that JDRF International received a new donation of $38,408.30.

    Thanks to customers shopping at AmazonSmile, everyday purchases generated over $200 million in donations to charities worldwide so far.

    See AmazonSmile’s impact to date:

    • $541,631.99 to JDRF International
    • $198,636,544.70 to all charities in the US
    • $215,721,458.97 to all charities worldwide

    That’s a lot of coin!

    I agree that every artist pictures the world seen through their own lens using his/her preferred medium.  I don’t get why this has caused such an uproar.  I found the performance to be beautifully choreographed and narrated.  It described a world that has healed from both the coronavirus and racism.


    First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to those injured.

    Second, I’d like to note that the British version of MSN allows comments!  MSN disabled comments in the US version years ago.

    Thirdly…more of a question…does the British press follow up with these stories?  There are a few unanswered questions here:

    1. Was this a bus that is normally used to drive schoolchildren?  (unfamiliar bus)
    2. Did this happen on the way to a special event for schoolchildren?  (unknown route)
    3. If this happened on a usual route with the usual bus, was the bus driver new?
    4. What about max-height warnings?  I see none posted.

    One of the things that I despise about modern journalism in the US is that being the first to report is apparently most important.  Fact checking and follow-through seemed to have fallen by the wayside…the five Ws…Who, when, when, where, why?

    This may sound a little harsh, but I think people’s attention spans have gotten much shorter.  In this day and age of Twitter and the 280-character tweets, there’s no interest in reading beyond that.

    Assuming they’ve gotten so far as to read the measurements, why is it up to you to determine where this thing fits?!  That, for me, is the real head-scratcher!  At least, the one guy got out a tape measure!  Too bad he didn’t calculate how to get it into the intended spot.


    I just donated a car load of things from my home, to include a box full of various styles and shapes of ceramic mugs.


    I just bought the FireStick.  Boy, am I impressed!  As a 5-year Amazon Prime member, I can watch a lot of things for free…but, I’ve never really taken advantage of it.  I’ve watched a couple of things in the past on my computer, but that’s not convenient for 2 people.

    My hubby and I are currently binge-watching “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” an Amazon original series.


    I’ve made this chicken salad several times a year for nearly twenty years.  It’s pretty refreshing on a hot summer day.  I’m providing a link, since I want to give credit where credit is due.  Also, I don’t want to be guilty of plagiarism.


    There’s a lot of stuff in it, but I feel it’s worth the effort.  I omit the optional kiwifruit and substitute plain, fat-free Greek yogurt for the sour cream.  I usually make chicken salad sandwiches or wraps using whole wheat sandwich thins or wraps with green- or red-leaf lettuce and sliced roma tomatoes.  A single recipe will make enough to indulge my hubby and me for three or four nights.

    I’ve seen it before, and I’ve seen it again…but not sure how many times, or the last time I watched it.  I enjoyed it.


    I’m thankful that I still have a job and am able to work from home full-time during this difficult time.

    Thanks for sharing that gorgeous picture, Cassandra!


    I just conducted a test:

    I signed out, displayed the home page, entered my username, and selected “Forgot your password?”

    I was then prompted for a username or email address.

    1. If someone enters their own email address, and they’re not a member, the email address is invalid, and no email is sent.
    2. Any non-member can find our usernames on the home page. If someone does manage to enter one of our usernames, we receive  the aforementioned password change request notification.

    Either way, someone trying to hack our accounts will be unsuccessful.

    There must be something else generating these emails, as I received another one today (not the one I just generated).

    I’ve reported the thread, asking for Martin’s comment.
