Wall Street Wednesday

1a

Protesters march during a rally against the extradition law proposal in Hong Kong on Sunday.

Chaotic scenes erupted in Hong Kong on Wednesday as tens of thousands of demonstrators stormed key roads next to government offices to protest against a proposed extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Thousands of protesters rallied in and around Lung Wo Road, an important east-west artery near the offices of embattled Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, as hundreds of riot police warned them to stop advancing.

Some protesters erected barricades to block traffic in the heart of the Asian financial center, with many defying police calls to retreat, in scenes reminiscent of pro-democracy protests that rocked the city in late 2014.

The government advised staff to avoid driving to government buildings because roads were blocked.

Lam has defiantly vowed to press ahead with the controversial legislation despite deep concerns across the Asian financial hub that triggered on Sunday its biggest political demonstration since its handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997.

    Finally messed with my new PrintMaster program and is sucks. Why do companies take a perfectly good program and reinvent it to be substandard to the previous program? I can’t type in a search box something I’m looking for to put in a greeting card, like flower. They have a set bunch of categories and you have to scroll, scroll, scroll forever thru their pictures. Only 15 to a page, hit the forward and watch the bar churn while the next page loads. A colossal waste of time, looking for anything.

    I called a repair place in Okemos, talked to a women there that told me if my printer, after deep cleaning, isn’t printing blue, the print head is shot and there’s nothing that can be done. She suggested I check out eBay, put my model number in and see what shakes out.

    Well, two of my printer popped up. One new for $100, another used for $59.99. This might be my answer. If I can’t use my old PrintMaster program on my XP computer I’m finished making cards, or address labels, or pictures for the wall.

    Finally breaded and fried up boneless chicken thighs for the freezer, breaking into tears every once in awhile. What a miserable day after playing with the worthless new printing program.

    Mrs. Flicker flicked by. She is fast; just a blur.

    Earlier two crows settled an argument.

    Well, well. Dead squirrel in Illinois Street, unmarked. Maybe hit by vehicle even so.
