The sweeping dot thing in the tabs makes me uneasy for some reason. 😉

Installed it yesterday. Seems to work good so far. The last version I was running (56 something) was constantly choking on Ebay and Facebook. Even closing those tabs didn’t stop the freeze ups. It was becoming a major headache.

The default button placements need tweaking. Keep looking in the wrong place for certain things and the Bookmarks button wasn’t even visible until you customize things.

Some of my old add ons are playing catch up to get new compatible versions available.

Really glad our forum is not on facebook. One group I mostly lurk in lost a historically valuable bunch of posts from someone who worked on Kubrick’s films, because the OP apparently nuked their post and that sucked all the replies down the drain with it. And apparently no way to get them back.

And the Charles Manson deathwatch begins anew! If the Grim Reaper doesn’t get him this time I’m writing off this entire damned year.

Gena Richardson says she was a high school senior working in the men’s department of Sears at the Gadsden Mall when a man approached her and introduced himself as Roy Moore.

“He said, ‘You can just call me Roy,’ ” says Richardson, who says this first encounter happened in the fall of 1977, just before or after her 18th birthday, as Moore, then a 30-year-old local attorney, was gaining a reputation for pursuing young women at the mall in Gadsden, Ala. His overtures caused one store manager to tell new hires to “watch out for this guy,” another young woman to complain to her supervisor and Richardson to eventually hide from him when he came in Sears, the women say.

Richardson says Moore — now a candidate for U.S. Senate — asked her where she went to school, and then for her phone number, which she says she declined to give, telling him that her father, a Southern Baptist preacher, would never approve.

A few days later, she says, she was in trigonometry class at Gadsden High when she was summoned to the principal’s office over the intercom in her classroom. She had a phone call.

“I said ‘Hello?’” Richardson recalls. “And the male on the other line said, ‘Gena, this is Roy Moore.’ I was like, ‘What?!’ He said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m in trig class.’ ”

Richardson says Moore asked her out again on the call. A few days later, after he asked her out at Sears, she relented and agreed, feeling both nervous and flattered. They met that night at a movie theater in the mall after she got off work, a date that ended with Moore driving her to her car in a dark parking lot behind Sears and giving her what she called an unwanted, “forceful” kiss that left her scared.

How does someone who’s not a parent or close family member call a school and get them to summon you to the principal’s office? Getting a phone call summons by the principal usually means a family emergency.

And also a child.

Three UCLA basketball players who were held in China on suspicion of shoplifting have returned to the US, where an indignant President Trump greeted them with a tweet.

“Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!” the president tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump has said he sought the help of Chinese President Xi Jinping in securing the release of freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley.

They had a press conference this morning where they thanked the great pumpkin. Since they returned to the U.S. a couple days ago I presume UCLA was waiting for them not to be jet-lagged and groggy in front of tv cameras.

56.0 has been freezing up for me using Ebay and Facebook to the point even closing those tabs doesn’t help anymore.
