Playing Politics

Earlier this month our little town voted to elect two people
to a five person Village Council. Political party affiliation is of
no concern or value in this race.

There were six people on the ballot, and one write in.

Of them, I had preferences for my vote. I also wanted to see
that three of them were defeated.

One of my preferences was successful and the other lost by
eleven votes.

Of the three that I wanted defeated, one of them was successful
by eleven votes. This was to be expected in that the person's
extended family could match all of our votes, plus one.

Of the other two that I wanted defeated, they both were outvoted
by the write-in, and their vote total so low, I'm surprised they would
show themselves in daylight.

On average, not too bad of an outcome. Now to go to work for the
November 2004 show.

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?
