Or, you could avoid holiday stresses by

avoiding the holidays, like I do, making me holier than thou.

Except ... The book we're studying just had a section on avoiding a spirit of competitiveness within the congregation. (There's a nasty rumor going 'round that stuff gets in the publications because reports filter in to headquarters that the problems exist with us.)

Oh, well, I'm still probably more relaxed than thou. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
