    Thanks Missy - I know about the regular popup blocker, but since I had allowed them, I didn't know about the selective popup blocking process. I will try it out.

    Right after I wrote my previous message about never getting Netflix at this site, guess what popped under????

    ETA - By the way, my new glasses are making me happy. I can see so much better!

    Getting my hair cut. I love just sitting there, being taken care of and getting a new look.

    I just get the Netflix when I first come into the FORT. However, tonight, my weather channel icon on my lower toolbar was sending out an alert and when I clicked on it (mainly because it was annoying) and came back in here, I got the Torchwood one! That was a first for me.

    I did -- just now -- too! That's annoying . . .

    LOLcats make me happy. I have one of the pictures as my screen saver and no matter how bad of a mood I'm in it always makes me smile

    My dinner right now is making me very happy. Creamed turkey on toast. I don't think I have had this for over a decade. I am getting flashbacks to my youth

    Oooh! Brings back memories. We used to have creamed chipped beef on toast. Haven't had that in decades. Maybe I'll look for it.
    Count your blessings!

    I tried that once a few years ago, thought to myself, have not had that since I was a kid. Bought the dried beef, made the cream sauce, toasted the bread. Woop DEE DOO. Wondered what there was about the way my Mother did it that I didn't. Called my Mother, she did it the same way I did. Haven't had it since.

    Haha, we had that in our work cafe on Tuesday! Our lunch lady has it every few weeks; it's pretty good!

    I guess some things are better left to memories.
