Like an old man sending soup back at a deli.too bad the video won't load
Yep, just like that!I'm not sure why the video won't load for you. It works for me in three different browsers on a PC. Maybe there are some flash player updates or something? What about the radar video above, does that work? Stupid computers!
says this video is currently not available. please try again later.the radar vid works
it's my computer. works on another one. hmmm
Thank you for testing that. I never know about these things, and it bewilders me how finicky our computers can be! My latest computer "issue" is that I got wireless mice for my computer and my kids' computer, and even though they are a good 30-40 feet apart, the stupid mice interfere with each other and don't work right when we're all on. Sheeesh!!
