  1. Depends on how fast you eat. And if you bring a Big Gulp to enhance throat lubrication while masticating the corn, be sure to locate your pause button in advance for when you're taking your frequent bathroom breaks.
  2. Stand up and take heed: A longish short story will appear anon. Don't miss it. Free admission. Bring your own popcorn. C
  3. Talk about dividing into two countries: we have a mini-vision of that in California. The state has something over 30 million people and for the past several years has voted solidly Democratic. But the state is seriously divided in political thought. The northern part above San Francisco and Sacramento is staunchly Republican, as is much of the agricultural areas south of San Francisco. So in land area, the state is mostly Republican. However, the largest cities—LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Riverside, Sacramento—vote for Democrats, and their population overwhelms that of the rest of t
  4. "You focus everything on Trump, he is only the figurehead, the man who symbolises and expresses the discontent of half the nation. I think it is dangerous to believe that by getting rid of the president, you solve the problem and magically everyone is united. The country is divided, the extremists are at the far end of the spectrum, but the problems in America run much deeper than Trump and the minority of his extremist followers. It is the root causes that need to be addressed.' -- Talo I doubt anyone believes all America's problems will go away once Trump vanishes. No, we have
  5. Then all the rowdies tuck tail between legs and hide behind their mommies. Well, we can hope, can't we? Trump has given a voice to these lunatics. Hopefully hushing him will have the same effect on them. As will the FBI's intent to jail as many of them as it can identify. There are already a significant number behind bars. I just can't see Trump continuing to raise a ruckus once his power has evaporated. Too, several states are waiting to indict him on various charges and he somehow has to address that. I've read in a couple of places he's planning to come to visit you guys, Ca
  6. Thanks for trying! It would be helpful if I knew how to do any of that stuff. I don't, and I actually have no interest in learning how. I have trouble remembering my own name. Trying to understand this stuff and them remembering it for more than five minutes is beyond me. Just ask Colin. If he wasn't around to puzzle out computer issues for me, I'd be dead in the water. I am finishing up another story. That I can do. Tech stuff is for you smart guys. C
  7. You guys are the computers mavens. I get sent quite a few videos. Some I can copy the URL and post it and it works. Some I can't. This one is very cute, warm and fuzzy, and I wish you could see it, but I don't know how to do any more than I already have. Sorry. C
  8. Peter, I don't know, but assume the reason to recycle stories is because AD is getting new readers all the time, and they have no idea what exceptional stories there are in the archives. By these being recycled , those newcomers will have a chance to find some of real gems, and to read them serially as they were first presented. The fact they've been edited, or re-edited, is rather incidental. I know I can find mistakes in most of my stories as they now exist. Knowing a story is going to be presented to a new audience, or an old one wanting to read an old favorite again, I'd certainly
  9. Here's another way to identify the video. Don't know if this helps or not.
  10. It did that to me once, then on another occasion took me to the video. You might try it again. If that doesn't work, punt. C

  12. It's a wonderful story; he's a wonderful writer. You'll be delighted, R. C
