I probably feel about Microsoft right now like soflo feels about Apple.  :lol:

They were to release their new version of Office 2021 today. Tech news outlets been reporting it, nothing about problems even as late as yesterday.

Today, NOTHING. Their support says next year...WHAT?

I'm so angry I could go and buy a Apple computer and never deal with Windows ever again. I wish I were savvy enough to give Linux a try, but I'm not.

Televised on ESPN2 no less.

I remember way back when ESPN was expanding their channels and a writer opined that what are they going to televise, two guys playing catch?  :lol:

Well we see they knew what they were doing, but TAG? I thought Cornhole tossing was a bit much, but that's nothing more than horseshoe tossing some how now glorified.  :shrug:

TAG and of course it's named  WORLD Chase TAG USA. What?

last week too much was happening as this long running show came to a close.

Who watched?


The US Navy will name a new aircraft carrier after Doris "Dorie" Miller, a decorated African American World War II veteran who defended Pearl Harbor during the 1941 attack on the Hawaii naval base, making it the first aircraft carrier to be named after an African American.

Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly made the announcement Monday during a ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the national holiday commemorating the life of the slain civil rights leader.

During the attack on Pearl Harbor, Miller manned an anti-aircraft machine gun aboard the battleship USS West Virginia "until he ran out of ammunition and was ordered to abandon ship," according to a Navy biography, which said he "had not been trained to operate" the weapon. Miller said he believed he shot down a Japanese plane during the attack, the biography said. The following year, Miller received the Navy Cross, the highest medal awarded by the Navy, becoming the first African American to receive the honor.

"Dorie Miller stood for everything that is good about our nation," Modly said. "His story deserves to be remembered and repeated wherever our people continue to stand the watch today."
The aircraft carrier to be named after Miller will also be the first one named after an enlisted sailor, Modly added.

Miller fought in the Pacific Theater until November 1943, when the ship he was assigned to was sunk by a Japanese submarine torpedo. He was listed as missing for a year and a day before being presumed dead on November 25, 1944, according to his biography.

In addition to the Navy Cross, Miller also received the Purple Heart Medal and the American Defense Service Medal, Fleet Clasp, as well as the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal, according to the Navy. In 1973, a Knox-class frigate was named in honor of Miller, but was later decommissioned in the 1990s.

Eleven aircraft carriers are currently in the Navy's fleet. The most recent one, the USS Gerald Ford, was commissioned in 2017 and is the Navy's most expensive warship.

General Discussion Forum / Does Anyone Use Low Cost Mobile Carriers?

like Mint Mobile?

In the past I used Virgin Mobile with no issues except they stopped offering iPhones when I needed a new phone so I moved on.

Now this carrier is offering even better pricing. Currently with TMobile.


Jumping for joy! Adorable moment father, aged 70, leaps over porch fence to hug his military son who he hasn't seen for two years.

This is the heartwarming moment a 70-year-old father leaps over a front porch fence to hug his military son - who he had not seen for two years.

In a video shared online, Charles Huddleston can be seen relaxing in a rocking chair in Decatur-Conehatta, Mississippi, as his son, Jarius Huddleston, 21, slowly approaches.

It is not until Jarius reaches the porch that Charles suddenly recognizes him, causing him to freeze for a split second before jumping out of his chair and vaulting over the fence to give him a big hug.

Family members can be heard laughing and rejoicing as the emotional moment is recorded by Jarius' sister Pam.

The father and son are reported to be extremely close and have spoken over the phone every day since Jarius left to join the Army two years ago.

The young serviceman is currently based in Fort Lewis, Washington, and had not been able to visit home since leaving, mostly due to the pandemic.

But on June 20, Jarius wanted to do something special for his father's 70th birthday and Father's Day.

After surprising his father, Jarius then reunited with his other family members, most of whom also knew nothing about his visit.

The recording of the reunion quickly went viral after being uploaded by Jarius' wife Jo An.

Comments on social media have shown appreciation for Charles' acrobatic jump.

One wrote: 'My knees would've gave out and folded like a wet card... Dad is awesome and this is a wonderful family. Shoot i want a hug.'

Another said: 'He ain’t 70... dad still got them skills.. congratulations', while one added: 'All you grasshoppers, take notice: Daddy’s still got it!'

Charles' family said he had wanted to go fishing for his birthday, which he was able to do with his son following the surprise.
