Yay Speakeasy search. I was able to recover Jonah's Yiddish

based joke from October 10, 2005. It was reluctant to go back that far, but eventually it did and I got to send it on to a friend.

Personally this one has been haunting me for 4 years now (well 3 1/2) and going off in my head like some hyperactive ground hog every few months, leaving me frustrated that I couldn't remember it verbatim.

Thanks Jonah, and thanks Speakeasy Search engine.

And Jonah, a Ground Hog is a largish rodent that lives in burrows in the Temperate latitudes of North America, and is traditionally supposed to emerge on the Second of February, see or not see his shadow and shadow unseen, winter will soon be over. Should he see his shadow he returns to his burrow to hibernate for another 6 weeks implying 6 more weeks of winter. Where this comes from other than the Farmer's Almanac, I don't know. Best known exemplar is Pennsylvania's Punxatawney Phil who is dragged out every Feb 2 from his nice warm caged home and displayed to all and sundry. The whole thing is so famous they turned it into a movie with Bill Murray and ... the actress who does cosmetics commercials. Sorry, slow data recovery time.

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?
