Scary quotes from my family.

"I tested the anti-lock brakes today." (they worked!)

"I couldn't see far so I used the GPS." (and lived to tell)

Fair warning, we're near Boston, USA.

Thank God we got here before the car finally broke down. We may be staying a while longer while it's getting a new engine.

Not in my family.....

...... but we had a 92 year-old neighbor who would cheerfully wave each time he pulled out of his driveway and holler. "Wish me luck!"

Happy to say he lived to be 96, and did not die from a car crash.

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?
