The main reason people here are having a hard time finding a GP is that all the GPs already have all the patients they can handle. I have had the same GP since the early '90s. I like her, so I didn't change GP when I moved. She's 23 km/15 miles from where I live now. Yep, even with the problems, it's really nice to have nationalized health care.

Thursday is the next day for the AARP tax help, so we are going to be there an hour before they open. If that doesn't work, then I will just file a paper return again. I actually want to learn how to do it online. I am one of those old people who are not very computer savvy. Once I see it done, I will be OK for next time. They owe me money!

Carol, have you looked into Taxact Online? They are pretty straightforward, and have both online and telephone assistance.

I've used them for years.

One of the last times I filed taxes I was able to do it electronically by phone it was an easy return to do and I was even able to have my refund wired directly into my bank account.

I haven't had to file since then as I don't make the minimum amount to have to file.

I like filing online. The software walks you through step by step and you can spend as little time as you want each day or week if you choose to do so or as much time as you wish to complete the returns (Federal and State) in one evening and sent them electronically. You're the boss.

IE/Firefox? Computer Geek required.

I am having endless problems with Internet Explorer and a couple of months ago I suddenly lost Flash Player and it won't re-install. I wasn't advised that it was time for an update before the disappearance and I didn't do anything to chase it away - it just wasn't there anymore. When I go through the motions to re-install it says it has installed successfully but when I come to try and use it I get a message telling me I need to load it. I'm not sure whether the IE problems and the Flash Player installation problems are connected.

I'm wondering whether, if I uninstall Internet Explorer and load Firefox, it will solve my Flash Player problems? I had to install Firefox to order a magazine subscription recently because the subscription company required it but I de-installed it afterwards (this didn't cause the Flash problem. I had it before the Firefox installation/de-installation).

Any opinions on Firefox generally and my problem in particular? I'm on Windows 7, 64bit.

The police are warning us of another scam in our area. The scammers pose as water department employees to gain access to homes. Once inside, one person will distract you while looking at the water meter and the other one quickly looks around for small things to steal, (cell phones, jewelry, money, ect.).

I love Firefox! I won't use anything else.

As for Flash Player, completely uninstall from your control panel, re-download and reinstall, see if that works. Remember to restart your computer after uninstalling and after you reinstall.
