    A few days ago Firefox began having an issue where an expired certificate caused extensions to be disabled. There is now a fix available for both the PC and Android versions, if you install the latest update you will get your extensions back.

    Thanks, I figured that out, but it was A) a huge inconvenience, and B) extremely intrusive-- every other time Firefox did this kind of thing, there was at least a warning, and not a sudden "oh by the way I've closed all your tabs and disabled everything just because"

    Tamper proof seals on jars and jugs. Tamper proof equals zero access. The little tab thingies are there just to tease and frustrate the consumer. They are not, in any way, designed to remove the disposable seal.
    And while I'm on the subject, the guy that designed the rip off strip and resealable bag is on my list. True enough the rip off piece is easily ripped off. But far too often for my liking, it rips off right above the zip strip. Once you reseal the bag there is nothing to grab onto to reopen.

    Yes, but what about purple peacock poop? :thinking:

    Here in Arcadia, peafowl roam my neighborhood and yard. Right now my mulberry trees are fruiting--and peafowl love mulberries! So they eat a ton of them...and their purple poop is everywhere. I don't mind; it's just a reminder of one of the many reasons I love where I live. :)

    I'm sorry you stepped in dog poop. I don't know why some people are so inconsiderate, not cleaning up after their dogs. Idiots! :oops:

    My buddy had to relay the story his granddaughter's preschool teacher told on her. She had asked the little tykes what is green, in your yard, and you sometimes step on it. Little Allie quickly raised her had and said I know I know I know. Alright Allie.. what is green and in your yard that you sometimes step on? Little Allie proudly proclaimed.. goose poop!

    January = 0, February = 0, March = 0, April = 0, and then the first ten days of May = 7.5 inches of rain. 36 inches average rainfall per year and it all falls in May and September. Love Kansas.

    Not in my neck of the woods! :eek: Here in the lovely San Gabriel Valley...well, at least my part of it, Arcadia, we haven't seen a drop. But we'd like to!

    I'm anxiously waiting for @lunatic59 to email me some of his excess rainwater. That should help! :D

    I tried to send it, but it was bounced back. Apparently California has a rather robust brush firewall in place. :p

    Purple poop really odd, i think us as a society has like a nanosecond before having the leash on the puppy, and we forget this or that, so it might of slipped up here or even there. I understand that, as a ex-pet owner that has a few puppies that just bolted into the road, and having one at my sisters place, he is there.
    Why cannot they bother with those bags and toss it out?
