I love Netflix. There are nights I cannot sleep and nothing is on TV and I turn on Netflix. Sometimes I watch the same movie or series and still hear or see something different. Lots of choices.
Dianne, a tragedy like that traumatises so many people. (((hugs)))
I signed up for Netflix and loved the movie. And it's been nice to be able to open up my laptop when I wake in the middle of the night and watch some Grace & Frankie episodes. A nice escape from the heartache of the aftermath of the mass shooting in my city.
Watched it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. It felt very close to what my guy and I have experienced these past couple years. Intimate relationships (with or without sex) for "old folks" is awkward. And, in our case, well worth the effort.
Fifty years after they first starred together in a movie, Jane Fonda ,79 and Robert Redford, 81 star in a new movie entitled ~ Our Souls At Night~. They portray a widow and a widower who have both been alone for a long time. It's a beautiful film and a joy to watch award winners re-unite after so many years. Find it on Netflix or in a theater near you where it may be playing. If you have enjoyed them way back when....this movie will have you enjoying them one more time. Seniors will find much to identify with in the story.
Don, If "Google" message asked you to follow a link and change your email and password, it was a phishing scam to steal you password and access your computer. If you followed that link and did change your password, it is very likely that your computer has been hacked. Any email you send and someone responds will also be affected. Best remedy is to take your computer to a reputable place like Best Buy and have them check it and clean it if need be.
There are a lot of very slick operators out there. Any reputable company will not ask you for your password - ever. Be very aware when responding to anything that just doesn't seem right.
Google will let you know when there are updates, but they will not ask you to change your password. If someone does that, RUN away! Ditto with all the "wonderful" messages about found money. There are bad guys out there and we need to be vigilant on our computers and our phones. I surely do not know how (and probably do not want to know) they are skilled at finding us, who are older, less computer literate, more easily confused, and distracted by our being alone. Have you heard about the recent hack on credit bureaus? There are many scams currently about how to protect our personal data. Be very, very careful about giving out any personal information, including how people can contact you. End of "sermon"!!! Peace.
