Well, but that's not the case. All they need to see are before and after pictures of my driveway, no permit. Heck, if I know for sure they're not going to send an inspector out I'll just photoshop my driveway and get done with it.
I'm doing the demolition and clean-up.

Thank you Alix for turning me onto Firefox, you too, Andy M for the recommendation.

I found how to turn the plug in banner off. It was just the Adobe loop that never ends. I googled disable, and quoted the blurb. For anyone interested, the site that gave the instructions is:


Disable Additional Plugins are Required to Display all the Media on this Page Bar - plugindefaultplugin, Firefox, Plugins, Flash, Takes, Double - Zhacks

This was supposed to be the http:// I copied from the address bar, but it should take you there.

Have fun! Sounds like a job my Dad would save for me on my vacation. I once dug a 25' long, 4' wide, 2' deep trench for him...only to fill it back in 10 years later.

You and I must have the same idiot Mayor. We have to get a permit just to have a yard sale. And they send the police your home. You have to have everything cleared back inside out of sight by 5pm. If the permits NOT clearly visible from the street it's a ticket. But they do nothing about the neighbors eyesore of a motor home that's blocking the city sidewalk, you can't walk on it and their cars block my driveway. That's not including the one rotting in the backyard. Ahhh California the land of aggravation..

I'm not sure. I spent the day yesterday playing with Firefox. I really hate bookmarks. This morning, I put IE and Firefox side by side and dragged each bookmark I made yesterday into a tab on IE and saved it to Favorites. then I organized them in my favorites, renaming and putting them into the proper folders. I just finished importing into Firefox and restarted it. Hopefully everything will be there until I have to do it again. I really need my Favorites, but I really love most of Firefox.

What I didn't like besides bookmarks is the Help. Instead of just telling me where something is when I ask for help, I get support forums that tend to run me around. The improvements to regular IE are wonderful, but room for improvement in others.

I found the AdBlocker and am getting ready to download now. Thanks. If there are any other goodies I should look for or look out for I'd appreciate more of your wonderful help. At least here I can converse with someone who uses Firefox and knows what she is talking about.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sally

Alix I'm really sad to say that my idea of importing my updated Favorites didn't work. It says it has, but nothing is changed. If I really have to, I guess I can always uninstall Firefox and reinstall it. It means a lot of work, but most of the day yesterday was spent running around in circles that I've learned to avoid and I did save the site that told me how to get rid of that Adobe plug in banner. This time I'll make sure to make a list of all the add ons.

I don't want to spend the entire day on it though, because after shopping yesterday, I have 3 things to make.

I'm making a Cuban for lunch, squash with shrimp for dinner, and a new made up dessert, Banana cream pie with bananas, banana pudding mix, with a gingersnap crust maybe with some peanut butter in it somewhere.

Hey, I want to keep this thread alive. I can hardly believe no one has had the need to vent since my last post a couple of weeks ago.

Well here goes. AGAIN, I wrote out what was a pretty lengthy reply to a new post, then saw the POST REPLY button and was given a new blank sheet to write on. Of course my lengthy reply was lost, and I know I should know better by now that I have to scroll down to post my reply, but D***mit!

My slipped disc (disk?) is hurting so I'm extra grouchy, but I still love this thread. I always feel better letting it out.

Zhizara, I'll vent with you! I have been doing some rather physical training the last 3 days and I ACHE! LOL! My left knee is swollen and a bit dodgy, my right glute is screaming and my shoulders...well don't get me started! Getting older sucks!

Ahhhhh! Thats better!

Hope your back feels better soon. I know how nasty THAT is! And I totally missed your post about importing your favorites. Did you get it worked out? I think when I did it I just manually did it.
