RE: Can you get a decent browser on Windows XP?

I've been using Brave browser quite a while now on Windows 10. I don't know if XP will support it, but thought I'd mention it, anyway. I'm pretty sure you'd like it if you tried it.

RE: Android Tablet Question

Like I said. helps I have the same Tablet. Now if you have an I-Phone question..... Don't have one can't help you. I did have an iPad, which I liked very much, but was stolen last spring along with my vehicle and never recovered. I paid around $500 for it years ago. I would have bought another, but didn't want to spend a lot of $$ again. So I went with an Android device instead. I still think the iPad was superior, just over priced. BTW, my fairly new smart phone is also an Android device (Samsung). :)

RE: Android Tablet Question

Thanks, wa8yxm. Your suggestion did the trick. I had tried touching the icons, but evidently didn't hold my finger on long enough. Now I believe I'm almost an Android expert! ;) I also appreciate all the posts from you other folks, too.

Android Tablet Question

I'm more familiar with Windows, but getting better with Android. The tablet in question is a RCA Viking Pro. My question is: how do I delete items in the downloads folder? i don't see anything to click on to accomplish that task. Thanks in advance for your help.

RE: Near Brownsville, Texas

I try to avoid staying anywhere near the Mexican border. I've been staying in Tucson for the past 3+ years without incident. However, a visit to Albuquerque last spring led to my vehicle and many possessions being stolen so, as someone stated earlier, isolated incidences can happen anywhere, regardless of where you are in the country.

RE: Happy New Year Y'all!

Not off to a great start so far here, but thinking positive Same thought here; with looming war in the mid-east, I still have positive thoughts for the future.

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Interesting, none of you noticed that it is a BMW at a charging station with a big generator behind, I wonder how much power that thing generates so that the vehicle can travel what? 200 miles and how much time and fuel does it requiere for a full charge from the generator. navegator I think you clinched it, Navigator. That obvious generator is a dead giveawy.

RE: Flip Phone

I've used flip phones for years and didn't want to give them up since they worked well for me. However, in recent times, the volume of scam calls I was receiving made the phone almost unusable. So I went to a smart phone (Samsung J3 on Verizon network) and the scam calls were greatly reduced. I'm happy with my smart phone and don't believe I'll return to a flip type again.

RE: Traveling Alone

I never married and travel alone. I'm a long-time divorcee and have RV'd full timed many years. I find I prefer to live alone, although I have many friends around the country. IMO, I can't think of a better lifestyle for a single person than to be a full time RVer. Unfortunately, a sudden disability took my out of full timing over 5 years ago. I'd quickly return to the lifestyle if, by some miracle, my disability went away. :)

RE: Mens' belts left or right

I have always started it left but my belly and butt always distort the shape of even my most expensive belts, so I switched directions and never realized how hard it was to change. Just like when I had shoulder surgery. Never dreamed how difficult it was to preform some tasks with the left hand. I know what you mean. My left arm and hand are paralyzed due to a stroke. Fortunately, I'm right handed and have learned to be pretty independent with use of only one arm. It's amazing how the body can learn to adapt to various situations. I drive my own vehicle (modified for right hand operation), dress myself (use a button hook for top button on dress shirt), and do pretty much everything else. Can't tie shoelaces, though. So I use shoes with Velcro straps. Same with ties, so I wear western style Bolo ties, which can be put on with one hand. :)

RE: Help with full timing over the winter

Thanks Mr Ed, would you have the name to that mobile home park in Tuscon? Also, to Ghooos, I think that ship has sailed. luvmydogs, I sent you a PM with the info some time ago. If you didn't receive it, let me know.

RE: Dish or Directv for full timers?

I never had Dish, but for many years I used Directv. I never had an issue with it and received a good strong signal just about everywhere I parked. I also feel they provided good customer service the few times I needed it..

RE: A Veterans memorial service

I spent about a year in Vietnam during the 60's with the Marines. I was last stationed at Khe Sahn, near the DMZ. To this day, I don't know how I made it out alive, without a scratch, having survived bullets, an anti personnel mine (set off by a guy next to me), and numerous rocket and artillery attacks. None of those with whom I was friendly survived.

Why cats don't like the desert

Why don't cats like the desert? They don't believe in sandy claws. (It's a rainy day here, and I have nothing better to do than to post a silly joke). :B

RE: Garmin GPS

The only time I remember my Garmin made a mistake was when I first moved to Tucson, over 3 yrs ago, and I was looking for a super Walmart. When I came close to the store, Garmin told me it was on the left, but it was really on the right side. Other than that minor glitch, it's been pretty accurate.

RE: Algodones. Dental. "molar" city

Be careful of an outfit called Sani Dental. I visited them for crowns, but they assigned an inexperienced individual (a denture maker) to do the work. As a result, this guy ruined all of my left upper molars. They apologized and refunded my money. I then went to Alamo Dental, where they installed the crowns correctly, but my molars still remain damaged. Alamo's price was higher, but at least they knew what they were doing.

RE: Knee Pain

How old are the shoes you normally wear? Sometimes all it takes is a new pair of good shoes. I've thought of that too, Wilbur. I tried another pair and back to the original ones, although I may repeat that. I wouldn't mind some good walking or hiking footwear, but since my left hand is paralyzed I can't tie laces.

RE: Knee Pain

There was no mention of the knee pain possibly originating elsewhere. I'll have to find out more when I start therapy. Thanks everyone for the heads up.
