    Pearl Harbor Day +77 years

    My Dad was stationed in Pearl Harbor on Ford Island during WWII. He arrived in March of 1942 and left in Nov of 1945. We spent 15 winters living on our 42 foot sailboat at Rainbow Marina in Pearl Harbor 2000 until 2015. Our slip was the outside slip about 450 yards down from the Arizona. Every Dec 7th they would open the bridge and what every warship was in Pearl would motor around Ford Island rendering Honors to the USS Utah and then coming through the open bridge and rendering Honors to the USS Arizona at the exact moment the attack started back in 1941. All the shipmates are in their white's and standing the rail. The ship comes within 150-200 yards of our slip. Everyone on the dock would gather at the end of the dock for coffee and watch. There was generally some type of fly over as well. Dennis
  2. Mark I had upgraded from Win 7 Pro on one laptop and Win 8.1 on the other. I was able to upgrade the Win 8.1 laptop from Win 10 Home to Win 10 Pro because I had the Win 7 Pro Key from the other laptop? Oregon Jim I have not noticed anything different or out of place on either of my 2 laptops which both have Win 10 Pro. Should I be on the look out for something specific? Dennis
  3. I have had it installed since 2 Oct and have not had any issues. I have not found any missing files or any operational problems. Were only some PC's affected? Dennis

    New Dental Programs

    Ray, IN We were able to get signed up for the Fed program in advance. We were originally on the wrong web page but thanks to trailertraveler post of 10 Oct we were able to get on the right web page and get enrolled in the Fed Employee Benefits web page. We are now ready for the open season starting Nov 12. Dennis

    Hey Guys this thread is not about where you winter or what Doctor in Mexico you used it's about figuring out the options on the new federal employee dental program.. Dennis

    Remoandiris Yes Delta Dental for retired military is going away effective 31 Dec 2018 and military retires can now sign up for the same dental program that Federal Employees have. I think open enrollment opens up some time this month? Dennis

    New Dental Programs

    Has anyone figured out the new dental program yet? There are so many options my head is spinning in researching this. If I understand this correctly that Delta is going away from DOD and we will now be eligible for the Fed Employee Dental program and the enrollment period is coming up soon for 2019 coverage. Dennis
  9. I have not noticed anything deleted as of yet anyway. I downloaded the first day on one laptop and on a 2nd laptop on the 4th day with no issues. Dennis
  10. RV We were at a friends up in Geneva, Nebraska for the week. It must have been her internet. When I got back to Bella Vista on Friday I updated Linda's laptop and it took 30 min start to finish. I have not noticed any big changes but I do not use my computer like you do. I am sure there are all kind of cool new features but I just have not found them. Dennis
  11. Well it downloaded with no problems but man did it take forever. I was on a highspeed land line and from clicking on check for updates to starting to configuration was 2.5 hours. So it does take a while. However it did download with no problems. Dennis
  12. RV Thanks this post is what I was talking about when I said I missed your informative posts. 57 Becky True I should have not used the word viruses. I know they are different but I always think of them as the same in as much as I know both are bad for my computer. Dennis
  13. RV I don't mean that you had taken your ball and gone in a negative way. I just meant that since you were getting ready to move and that you did not spend as much time on the forum that it sure had gone dead. I know that you are out there and that if someone really needed help that you would be one of the first ones to jump in. I guess I was saying that I miss your informative posts and the knowledge I gained from them. Stay safe my Friend Dennis
  14. chirakawa Yes you are correct I should have said computers and software forum and not thread. SWharton Maybe not? Dennis
