Thank you very much, I'll tell it to him.
I'm not gray hair yet and I do not think I get what he is so old (25 years) so I think he will run cool. He went and surprised his friend yesterday and he said he drove quiet when it rained so much and now he drives his sister to the store.
The thing with thunder and lightning is not fun as soon as it thunders, I pull out the connectors to both TV and computer. Zack is usually next to me and hyperventilating or so he wants to be in the car.

We are quite prone to having lightning and thunderstorms here in South Africa.
I had damage to my pc not so long ago because I forgot to unplug the internet ( mine still works with a line... no wifi)
But now it has changed, I have wifi now.
But for all the others electronics, tv and computer you have to be safe and unplug when there is a storm.

I've missed you, too, Sam!

(and everyone else!!!)

I've been stuck in bed - it is the way it is, lol. I'm used to it, at this point.

That is an awesome picture of lightning, Sam!

I've always loved watching storms - but, from safely inside and NOT with the storm inside with me!

Omgosh..we just had a Tornado just South of the Interstate..sirens went off 2 times..and we got hail..lol..lots of lightening..John and the kids, dogs all came downstairs..I called Terry they were headed to the basement..and Terry called Renee..

Street lights went out but the homes still had electricity..me and John was standing outside when that happened..I love storms..I wish I had the money I would be a storm chaser lol..then all of a sudden..it got cold..right before it started..omgosh..I'm all hyped up..lol

Everything is now past us except the rain..and Columbia which is East of us about 25 miles got it as well..and they seen funnels..which is tornadoes that haven't touch ground yet..

I know CindaLove from Simmer's Garden lives in Arkansas just not sure where..and they have tornadoes in that area as well..I hope everyone is safe there..Oklahoma is getting it good..headed towards Texas and all..

I'm going to wait till all this is over and to make sure there won't be another tornado warning..then off to bed..

Be safe everyone..this storm is headed East, South, Southeast and Northeast..

~hugs and smiles everyone~

Good morning everyone..hope your day goes great..

I went to bed around 9pm..and it's almost 3 am..I went to bed way to early lol..

It got up into the 60's yesterday..no clouds and that sun was so bright that you couldn't see without sunglasses..today supposed to be the same..by the weekend it's supposed to be in the low to mid 30's with snow/rain mix..

Most of the buds on the trees and bushes got taken off during that storm..the porch, sidewalks, grass and driveway is covered in buds..

We do not have tornadoes in Sweden, which I am happy because I have seen the storm chaser on TV, single and tornadoes that tore up some trees, we have had nothing but great.

A little mixed weather
Spring: the snow melts and it becomes warm and not much rain. :springhere:
Summer: With luck, it will be warm, it will be over 30C (86F) so they go out with warnings, we have a lot of thunderstorms in summer, but no long-lasting, light rain (heavy rain that causes water not to drain away sometimes occur) it can also thunder if it has been very hot for long.
Autumn: That's when we usually have storms, hurricanes, we have suffered the biggest was in 2005 when we were without power for two days they were worst affected were without power for a month.
Winter: Hopefully it will snow and we can have storms. :Winter1:
We are not so close to the sea any 3-hour drive in each direction but we live near a fairly large lake so it means that it can blow a lot.
Most people here know that if the wind blows as you fill up a container with water produces tea lights, candle lights and oil lamps, we also have a small gas stove so we can cook litte lighter food.
I must say that one becomes hardened by living in the country at times. But I do not want to move to any city or community where it is for the people and never silent. It is not here, either you hear the train or the highway sometimes but it's not annoying, not like when the neighbor starts to mow the lawn at 8 AM or hedge at 9 PM and do not understand that one can try to make it a little better times.

Good afternoon :cbs:

Well another forced upgrade to your computer come September 2017..from Firefox..if that is what you are using..I am..

When I got on Firefox did upgrades and then a tab came up saying if you have Windows XP and Windows Vista..I have Vista..then Firefox will no longer support it..you have to have Windows 7,8,10..how dare they force people to upgrade when they can't afford it..

Just like Origin..don't support Windows XP or Windows Vista..you have to upgrade to 7,8,10..

So fed up with these people that force you to do things you don't want to do.. swear

If or when I have to do this..how is Windows 7 with Sims2..and will it affect all my stuff I have on my computer..like my game..downloads..programs..and all that..

And on top of that this computer is a 2008..will Windows 7 even be able to be downloaded to this computer..I don't have the money for a new computer..

Windows 7 has been a pain; with help from my son I finally convinced it to recognise a "legacy" game, but everything has to run as administrator, or the files will not upgrade properly (Windows won't recognise and save the changes made each game session). My darling spouse just bought me a new computer with a decent graphics card. He saw me trying to play my sims the other day; I shut down within 15 minutes, whimpering in pain from the awful graphics and refresh rate on my lappy. All he said was, "This won't do. You need your toys," but I now have a Lenovo Ideacentre 300 (this). However, it has Windows 10, and I still haven't even tried to install my sims; I'm researching everything I can to insure a clean, viable game. One of the suggestions from the most tech-savvy, reliable sources I know has been to install my sims in a separate Games folder, NOT in programme files. This (so they say) will bypass the Windows nanny that so zealously guards programme files from being altered, even when they should be. It may work for 7 too, and let you avoid the grief I had. As long as you are careful to back up your My Documents folder on an external before you upgrade, you will only lose some time if it doesn't work.

Sam, you can still update from Windows Vista to Windows 7 for free. Microsoft will continue to support Windows 7 until 2020 - at that time, Windows 10 (whatever iteration they'll be on) will be necessary as an operating system on a PC.

Croi - I am using Windows 10. I have zero issues with my game; however, I am using ts4, not ts2.

ts2 should run just fine on both Windows 7 and Windows 10. Microsoft will help with installation/upgrades to the operating system.

Yes, Sims 4 is fine on 10; 2 is not. It is considered legacy software, and it's not supported, although there are some helpful souls in the MS community who have posted unofficial advice. Meanwhile, I am vastly annoyed. I no longer have Managed DirectX on my lappy, although I did as recently as last May, and I did not uninstall it. It is essential for SimPE to work. I realise it has been deprecated, and I'm wondering if it could it have been uninstalled/overwritten/otherwise fubar'd in one of the MS updates.

Hmmmm.... sounds like software applications are being upgraded everywhere - operating systems, web browsers, games, applications...

...possibly due to being vulnerable to viruses and malware?

I'm not sure how MDX could be exploitable, but I'm not about to rule it out, not when there are people out there able to hack into the cyberwarfare division of the CIA! However, my virus protection is very good, I have no sensitive files, and I'm willing to risk it...if I can ever FIND it again. >.<

When I bought my computer it was windows 8 on it and I had big problems with those apps, so I left it in, and they got install widows 7 I had on my old computer, then it started to come up signs that I should upgrade computer to Windows 10 that I did not want, until one day it was "about 10 hours will be installed Windows 10" and I got a little panic over it but it worked out.
But why can not you free to decide what they want on their computer.
Suzanne: 2020 you said then I have a hold of me, but it might not touch me because I have all my games on DVD and do not even need any Internet in order to play The Sims.
