       In such a case as this, I would automatically go to Firefox, click on Help, then click More Troubleshooting Information, then click Refresh Firefox.       Don't click the screen until it tells you to.       It might work.

     Thanks for that, Gadget.     Great help!

         I want to stay with Windows 10 Home Edition as long as possible.    I don't have the Restoro repair tool but I do have Wise Disk Cleaner.      Does anyone know if I can use this to block Windows 11 being installed?   I am assuming it works in the same way as Restoro.     So where would I go to on Wise Disk Cleaner to block Windows 11 being installed?

       I thought Pixie Lott was great last night.        She heard the band playing her tune and she instinctively began singing along with them.   She did it so perfectly that I wondered if it had actually been rehearsed beforehand.       
       Either way, her singing with the band was terrific.

      Maybe she is buried in a family grave.       You could try to find out where her parents are buried and she might be there.

        I still have Calendulas flowering in my garden.      Amazed at that!       And it was only yesterday that I pulled up my Tagetes, which were also still flowering.        Cleaned out my greenhouse yesterday, and cleaned all the plant-pots too.       Love the greenhouse.       It can be cold outside, but the slightest bit of sunshine heats it up.       

           Most peaceful place in the world, my greenhouse.          It is 12ft long and I have an old Windsor chair in a small add-odd hut I built at the very end of the greenhouse.      I made a door at the end of the greenhouse, leading into the hut.     I often have a cup of tea there and a read at the paper.       I am 78 and riddled with arthritis, especially on my back, but I still do a LOT of gardening.

       Old song goes...
       Que Sera Sera
       Whatever Will Be Will Be
       The Future's Not Ours To See
       Que Sera Sera    - Doris Day, 1950's

        No-one really knows what will happen.      On the one hand, there could be an even greater crisis than there is now, especially if the hospitals still aren't coping.     On the other hand, it may hopefully work out quite well, due to the number of folk who have been vaccinated.

      I often have to Log Out and Log In again before the payment I have just made appears up at the top right side.       I don't know if this is usual with other members of 'ScotlandsPeople'

                   I opened up the death cert and attached it to a message here but for some reason Roots always lets me down when I try to attach an image to a message.      Anyway, the 1944 death was at Lasswade and a summary of it reads as follows:

     Elijah Davies, 45, Hall Caretaker, married to Janet McArthur, died 10 Sep 1944 at Institute, Rosewell.    Parents: James Daniel Davies, Bricklayer, Retired & Annie Finley.    Informant: James Daniel Davies, father, 45 Church Street, Broxburn.
