How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Kick’em Jenny & the Real Untameds at El Bar de Las Motos:
Sunday, February 2, 2020 at 5:30 PM
On Sunday, February 2, we present Jenny Giglio, one of those artists from the Rockin ‘scene who leaves no one indifferent.
Whoever has seen it act will fully understand the description we will make of it. Wild, daring, dazzling, sexy…A real Rockabilly volcano. Showing on the stage an attitude similar to what many define as “Rockabilly Rules”, hoarse voice, reminiscent of the matchless Wanda Jackson, a well-beaten acoustic guitar and a nearby beer. In their performances they play both their own songs composed by her, as well as a cast of the best of “obscure rockabilly”.
Not surprisingly, his artistic nickname is taken from an active underwater volcano near the Island of Granada, in the West Indies, the “Kick’ em Jenny ”. Do not miss it, as always, in the best atmosphere, at El Bar de Las Motos. We wait for you.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #80:
-Parents Need To Know About Tiktok: Why don’t kids use Facebook anymore? Oh, they may when they know you are watching. As soon as you’re gone they switch. Besides the rebelous attitude of “I don’t wanna be like my parents” and “Facebook is for Boomers”, the real reason is they don’t want their parents cyber-stalking them by monitoring their FB posts. Kids were using Instagram and Snapchat for their parent-free social media and messaging in recent years. Some parents caught on. Now the kids are moving to TikTok, a site where they can message each other and share 15-60 second video clips (remember their attention spans) free of parental control. Unfortunately there are dangers, adult content and creepy strangers lurking. Kids may take chances meeting new people if it gains them more “followers” and “builds their on-line presence.”  You need to educate yourself and speak with them regarding Tiktok. Please visit this website so you know exactly what risks your children may be exposed to.
-Toshiba laptop owners. Toshiba recently sold it’s laptop division to Sharp Corp. as part of a settlement resulting from a huge 2015 corporate scandal. Toshiba laptops are now re-branded as Dynabook. The official Toshiba laptop website address now redirects you to the Dynabook website. Reference: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14168/dynabook-the-new-name-of-toshibas-pcs
