Speaking of Church .....

Church songs, that is

A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning. He said ''Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach. Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind.''

The pastor shouted out ''CROSS.'' Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, ''THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.''

The pastor hollered out ''GRACE.'' The congregation began to sing ''AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound.''

The pastor said ''POWER.'' The congregation sang ''THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD.''

The Pastor said ''SEX.'' The congregation fell into total silence. Everyone was in shock. They all nervously began to look around at each other afraid to say anything. Then all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, a little old 87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing ''PRECIOUS MEMORIES.''

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?
