    I've "googled" this, but have found nothing. Can't believe no others have commented. Today, it seems that the actual URLS are being put at the top when I search for something...
    Used to be results would be the page title and then the URL -- Like

    PriusChat
    https://www.priuschat.com

    But, now. Hmm, can't explain it well, but here is a screen shot
    And, this is not on a mobile, but a desktop.

    Well, maybe I will get used to it...

    Even better, get used to using DuckDuckGo as a search engine, it doesn't track you like Google does, unless you like being tracked...

    I don't mind being tracked...unless it's a cougar....

    Corvallis' Dunn Forest Closed Following Report Of Cougar Encounter . News | OPB

    Husband actually TWICE saw a cougar "kitten" about 150 yards from our house a few weeks ago. He said it was a bit bigger than a bobcat and he was sure mom was nearby. There is a reason I walk with a "pack" of dogs. LOL!

    Oh, and, yes I should use duck duck, but I have a degree from another Oregon University and it is painful to consider anything with duck in the name.

    i was sitting on the patio with our grandson the other day, and a groundhog ran up the steps and froze when he saw us.:eek:
    we had a stare down, and he finally bolted. that's why i don't go out without my grandson.;)

    gotta love the new designs.
    I think they call it making room to scale upwards. Or just scaling. because what company do you know of that would consider scaling downwards.

    They're gettin ready for the new quantum computers coming out soon to Best Buy near everyone.

    He must have saw the whites of your eyes:p.

    We had a stare down in the church parking lot with a domestic rabbit about a month back. He hopped over and licked my wife’s hand:).

    That sealed the deal and guess what we have now:whistle:?

    Hard to believe people abandon animals, but he’s living the good life now(y).

    Need to be careful. Probably a meth-rodent!

    Male rabbits are very sweet. Just happy guys. The females are quite territorial and can be a bit irksome as pets.

    Our rabbit is a male and licks your hand:).

    The wife had rabbits prior and said this rabbit is uncommonly friendly ;).

    I just wish he’d stop digging holes in the backyard:cool:.

    We’ll take the friendliness for now(y).

    I was the notso proud co-owner of several of the lop ear breed (mostly all while) many moon ago.
    link with pics of the cute buggers A Guide to Lop Eared Rabbits and Care
    I can't believe I'm actually posting this here, but beside those wascally wabbits, there was also
    the makings of a mini zoo / sea world occupying every room in the residency..
    Typically separate vacations meant I had to know in intimate detail the daily routine of care for the various special creatures
    being raised. My lack of attention to details was often the topic of conversations at what I remember being the (most) inappropriate times.
    I now look back on those times and LOL because laughing is more socially acceptable than crying about it, which I would do on a regular basis given an acceptable environment, especially whenever a phD/mD type feels the need to bring it up again and re-spark those wonderfully fading memories.

    Rabbits like to chew through any cable (network or power) nearby. They use those rodent teeth!

    The Google quirky behavior only lasted for one session. I became disgusted with it, posted here and shutdown Google. When I later returned to Google, it was back to normal.

    Just for fun, I did system AV and malware scans (though I could not figure how that would relate) and nothing. Windows did tell me I needed to turn on tamper protection, which I did. Now Windows is telling me I need to set-up One Drive for file recovery options in the event of a ransomware attack. Since I am not even sure what One Drive is, I have not followed that instruction.

    We had one, way back: it would dig holes and lie in them. A way to keep cool?

    Without doing a search to get the boring technical details for OneDrive, I'll venture to say it's Microsofts version a Cloud Storage account, where customers who agree to the EULA (end user license agreement) for OneDrive, can store system and or personal data on Microsoft-s' cloud based servers.
    It's a convenient way to make a / another backup of the Windows System in case there is no other backup / restore method and/or the potential other backup method(s) available become unusable for restore.
    (begin personal rant) Microsft products have a history of being not so secure, and having the dubious reputation for needing to have the entire system re installed at the first indication of any abnormalities discovered in the system. (end rant here)
