Today is my mother's 100th birthday

She's in a nursing home, can't get out of bed after Covid, but she's hanging in there. No underlying issues, only hyperthyroid and glaucoma. Asked why she's lived so long she would say, "broccoli."
Loves Rachel Maddow. I keep fresh flowers in her room. She has my deceased brother's seascape painting also. Beloved by us all, she's definitely our matriarch.

Help with new cat in home

My neice needs to rehome a sweet one yr old cat. I have two, but said we could try bringing her here for a trial run. I have a separate room set up. My cats are 19 and 9. 19 yr old hates all other animals but sleeps on my bed all day anyway.
My 8 yr old wants a playmate but has never seen another cat and I don't know how she will react. What is best way to introduce new cat? Thanks for suggestions.

No Window screens in England

Asking for a friend considering moving from Nevada to England: she has 3 cats. How do folks in England open windows for fresh air and yet keep pets from jumping out and keep bugs from coming in without window screens?

Who else is watching Dark Winds?

I think I'm in the right forum for this question

It concerns iPod vs mp3.
I love my iPod nano, but it and iTunes will be unavailable in near future.
The mp3 player looks similar. Should I get one? Is it easier to load music on it? Is it going to be around longer than iPod? Or should I look into something else altogether? I use iPod while exercising and on long drives. Don't want to carry my phone around ( not an iphone btw).
I'm not much of a techy.
Thanks for any advice.

I'm seeing something really scary on You tube lately

I watch "reactions" to music, mostly young folks hearing classic rock or blues, suggested by viewers. Recently these people are reacting to suggested videos praising the right wing and Trump. One says the Dems were pro slavery, etc. Never mentioning the parties have literally changed places, or how the Repub party of today is not the party of just a few years ago. These go out to lots of people who don't follow politics or current events but believe something because there's a video! With lots of positive feedback from viewers. It's scaring the crap out of me.

Looking for a good wall clock

My old one fell and I don't feel like fixing it again. I want a nice well made Mission style wall clock. Can't find many online. Anyone know a good company to check out? Who makes good clocks these days? Will pay $400 or so.
Thanks for suggestions!

Question about Youtube subscriptions

I just had to unsubscribe to about 25 channels I never subscribed to! Question: how did they get into my subscribed list to begin with?
Don't tell me " you must have done it and forgotten." Most of them I NEVER would have subscribed to. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks.
