Maybe you just need to TELL your IE that you're going to load Chrome if it doesn't straighten up! I had a friend who used to threaten her houseplants and got amazing results... /grin

Jennifer, you are a lady after my own heart! I talk to appliances, plants, the cat, the news, etc., expecting it to make them all be better.

Jennifer, it's important to be polite when you do that. I told IE I was switching to Chrome, and it didn't mind a bit to be rid of me ;)

I had a boss years ago who gave me the funniest little sign. It said "Don't yell at the printer, it's in the same Union as the copier."

I've also tested 2 browsers (chrome, IE )and non of them worked
not sure what is going on since usually we get some sort of an announcement if a site is under constrictions or something else

Jennifer, I have recently been coaxing my power steering pump to last until the next check comes in. You know how it is with teenagers? That car is 14 years old. I have to talk to it all the time.

Too funny, MEZ - and too true! I told my son the other day that I was having to repeat things so many times that I felt like a broken record. He just gave me a blank stare.

It took me a moment to realize he doesn't know what a record is... Good luck with your teenage car!

Maria, just one advice: Do not use water instead of power stearing oil, it's been tried and tested (by me) worked one day, then the power stearing was set in seven stones and wasn't to be budged....... My '77 T'bird wasn't easy to parallel park after that, I wonder why (I'm not weak, am I?????)

No plans to put water in the pump, Remi. My hubby would murder me.

I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring, not one of the heaviest cars on the road, but heavy for its size. I am developing upper arm muscles from steering in tight turns, etc.

In old Irish coroner reports, I have frequently seen "Visitation by God". Does anyone know exactly what the medical diagnosis would be? I can only imagine that they just keeled over, probably by a stroke or heart attack.
Also, apoplexy was a common diagnosis, but I'm not sure the medical equivalent.

Several explanations, they even explained the plague was a visitation of God, so the answer is probably an unexpected death or just "only God knows why".

Thanks Bjorn.

Apoplexy is a short form for apoplexia cerebri, which is the same as a stroke in english.
