lppenguins said: I need to get my tops on hangers where I can see them. I might get renewed enthusiasm.  If you do, think about pinning a little paper label on them with the size.  if you're looking for a specific size ("I need to do a baby quitl!  Grandkid needs a twin size!"), having that information available without needing to unfold the top is a true convenience.  It's easy enough to do before you put the top on the hanger but a real bugger to need to remove every top from the hanger just to see what size it is.  Ya know how I know it would be a convenience???  Cuz I had to unfold all the "big looking tops" to see if it was a queen size!

Fantastic Idea Shelley, I will have to remember that.  Thanks for sharing.

I finally got my new computer back from the Geeks who were loading software and data for me so now I can answer posts (this computer is so different than my old one and I'm not sure how to operate everything yet - went from Windows 7 to Windows 10).  

Rick's cardiologist is sending him for an angiogram to check to see if there's also blockage anywhere,  Then they can determine the best procedure for him.  It looks like everything's going to take awhile because the holidays will be involved.

Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts everyone.

The computer geeks at work make fun of me because I have my work computer set to “classic“ mode. So it doesn’t look like other peoples‘ computers, it still looks like Windows did 10 or more years ago LOL

A lot of the programs on this new computer look the same.  The email is driving me crazy though.  It's Windows Mail and I don't like it at all.  So many features that were on Windows Live Mail aren't on there - like setting up groups, knowing which emails are read, keeping items longer than 3 months (especially those in folders that were put there because I thought they were important and may want to refer to them again).  I suppose I'll eventually get used to it but am tearing my hair out at this point.

Holy smokes!  You don't have the ability to keep emails older than 3 months????  

That's unacceptable and would be a deal breaker for me 

Find another email program!

I use Gmail, it is part of the Google family.  If you have Google on your phone you can see your emails there too.  I have both email and calendar on Google and can check both anytime on my computer, phone or Apple watch.

My service provider originally at was centurylink and they had the same thing, you couldn’t actually save emails long term. I never used that email address because of it. I use Yahoo and Gmail instead.

Rick's email address is gmail.com and mine is cox.net.  It's not those items that I'm frustrated with.  It's the program that shows those emails and other email extensions on my computer.  My new program, that came with the computer, is called "Windows Mail".  The old email operating program was "Windows Live Mail".  It seemed like a much more user friendly system. 

Are you saying that you can get a program that displays all of your emails, and emails you receive from other's various email addresses, from gmail?

I hear you!  Going to Windows10 IS a big change.  Especially from W7.

I'm glad Rick's Dr was able to get "eyes and ears" on him.  The holidays do slow things and with them already slow due to COVID I'm sure it will feel like a snail's pace.  Just keep taking a day at a time and do your best.
