    Tw33tle_Dee reacted to Angelz in Viet Nam Vet   
    Richard, (my husband), never really talked a lot about his time in Viet Nam, other than he had been shot by a sniper. However, he had a rather grainy, 8 x 10 black and white photo he had taken at a USO show of Ann Margret with Bob Hope in the background that was one of his treasures.

    A few years ago, Ann Margaret was doing a book signing at a local bookstore. Richard wanted to see if he could get her to Sign the treasured photo so he arrived at the bookstore at 12 o'clock for the 7:30 signing.
    When I got there after work, the line went all the way around the bookstore, circled the parking lot, and disappeared behind a parking garage. Before her appearance, bookstore employees announced that she would sign only her book and no memorabilia would be permitted.
    Richard was disappointed, but wanted to show her the photo and let her know how much those shows meant to lonely GI's so far from home.. Ann Margaret came out looking as beautiful as ever and, as second in line, it was soon Richard's turn.
     
    He presented the book for her signature and then took out the photo. When he did, there were many shouts from the employees that she would not sign it. Richard said, "I understand. I just wanted her to see it."

    She took one look at the photo, tears welled up in her eyes and she said, "This is one of my gentlemen from Viet Nam and I most certainly will sign his photo. I know what these men did for their country and I always have time for 'my gentlemen.'' With that, she pulled Richard across the table and planted a big kiss on him.  She then made quite a to-do about the bravery of the young men she met over the years, how much she admired them, and how much she appreciated them. There weren't too many dry eyes among those close enough to hear.  She then posed for pictures and acted as if he were the only one there.
    That night was a turning point for him. He walked a little straighter and, for the first time in years, was proud to have been a Vet. I'll never forget Ann Margaret for her graciousness and how much that small act of kindness meant to my husband.
        
    Later at dinner, Richard was very quiet. When I asked if he'd like to talk about it, my big, strong husband broke down in tears.. ''That's the first time anyone ever thanked me for my time in the Army,'' he said.
    I now make it a point to say 'Thank you' to every person I come across who served in our Armed Forces. Freedom does not come cheap and I am grateful for all those who have served their country.

    More than likely the APN settings got set to default, the new sim card should restore those or you can try to restore yourself; https://apn.gishan.net/en/apn/straight-talk/motorola-moto-g7-play#apnset-0

    Just remember, picking " clean install" when installing drivers does not clean out driver leftovers. It only clears the control panel settings and does not save those settings. For a complete 100% clean when having problems DDU has been the best for me and lots of others;

    In Device Manager you want to look under "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and not system devices.

    Tw33tle_Dee got a reaction from BlackRose in WAW keeps crashing after windows update   
    If your games are crashing after a Windows update, try disabling "Full screen optimizations". They are slowly updating this in stages so as not to cause problems but we are talking about Microsoft here and as usual they are screwing it up. Make sure your drivers are up to date, then right click on game .exe/properties/compatibility and check "disable full screen optimizations"

    Mod folder might not be under "virtual store" depending on what your user account control settings are set at. With my user account control settings, my folder is at " user name/AppData/Local/Activision/CoDWaW/mods"

    Was the Windows update the new May 2020 update by any chance? If you have Intel Optane Memory, the new update breaks this which requires a reinstall of the driver.

    Microsoft has been slowly rolling out updates to the Windows Desktop Manager for full screen optimizations. Thy wanted to do it gradually to avoid any performance issues. More than likely a recent Windows update probably made a change to the WDM that did not work well with your driver. Because of these gradual updates it is important to keep your graphics drivers updated. Glad you got it fixed.

    Maybe check disk for errors and run memtest before you do a reinstall.

    It's still free as an upgrade from W7 or W8 using Microsoft's Media Creation Tool. For whatever reason the free upgrade tool is still functional;
