Don't forget when I post galleries of dresses or of guys dressing up pretty, I usually post at least a couple of pages of them all at once. So if you're just clicking on the most recent pages or threads, or just getting a feed of our most recent posts, you are in fact missing almost half to over half of our pictures, galleries, & posts. Check out the previous page of a thread to see all the new posts, not just the last 3-7 of them on the last page of this or any thread.

I found some more pictures of cute guys dressing up in pretty dresses & outfits. Are they all really guys? Of course not, but most of them are. Are some fake? Yep. But on a fun & fantasy site, that's OK.

Hi Betty,is that because of this  president wanting to cut down on everything,this cannot be right that they can do this,also how fair that you worked in Canada and USA ,but cannot be paid from both places.

It depends on how much you made in your life & how much of you got deducted out of your weekly paychecks towards those benefits. So basically, we're just getting back what we paid in benefits during our life. Payments are spread our over your life expectancy. So at the minimum retirement age of 62, they pay you back what you put it, in monthly checks, under the estimate that a 62 y/o male on average, only has 10-13 years left to live. Some live a bit longer or a bit less, but it all averages out to around a life expectancy of 72-75 years old.

But for my jobs during my life, almost half my taxes & benefits were paid to the Canadian government & system when I would work there, & a little more than half was paid into the USA system when I worked here. But I can't get any Canadian benefits that I paid into, unless I become a Canadian citizen, & live there. And if I do, I can't collect any USA benefits.

So no matter what I do or where I live now, I'll can only get about a half a lifetime of benefits from either country, but not from both. But I did have to pay USA income tax on everything I earned in Canada & taxes on everything I earned in the USA.

Right now they're writing new laws to restrict & reduce retirement & disability benefits. Every paycheck for all of our lives has money deducted from it for retirement & disability benefits. This was done under the guarantee that we would get it all back if we became disabled or reached retirement age. But now the government wants to pass laws to keep more of it instead... money that we paid in benefits deductions all our lives, that was promised to be paid back to us later!

Betty, it sounds like you are eligible for Medicaid, have you ever applied? It's for people with low incomes who aren't eligible for Medicare.

LOL. I qualified for the minimum retirement age at the end of June 2017. If all goes well, I might finally get my first retirement check at the end of this March.

Because I worked in both Canada & the USA, & legally paid taxes on the income earned in both, I can qualify for some benefits in Canada if I become a Canadian citizen & actually live there. But I can only get benefits from the country I live in, not both, even though I paid taxes on my earnings from both countries.

So what benefits I would get from either the USA or Canada by itself really isn't much, even though combined, it would have been a survivable retirement. Almost half my life's income was earned in Canada, & taxed in Canada. When I was younger, I worked a lot in Canada all the time. But I'm not a Canadian citizen, & never had a legal Canadian address.

As far as health aid, we're still working on that. Believe me, it would have been really nice. Spending almost $1,000 that I didn't have for an O2 machine & other treatments just to survive a few more months wasn't fun. Going on almost 2 years spending over $200/mo. importing inhalers for COPD. It probably would have cost even more to buy them legally with a prescription locally... plus well over $1,000 per visit just to see a doctor to get the prescriptions.

I was reading an article last week, where in India to treat a certain type of hepatitis, one has to take a pill that cost them $3-$4 every day for 6 weeks. They charge over $1,000 each for the exact same pill made by the same company here in the USA!

Our heath care system has been broken for decades, & most Americans are either too uninformed or naive to even know it. Most of us don't even know that the life-saving $400-$600 epipens used to treat serious allergic reactions in the USA only cost $10-$24 overseas.

Thank you so much.

I'm not sure if I understand the problem. Is it just the Pay Pal logo/link here that goes blank in Windows 10, the entire Pay Pal page when you click on it, or Betty's itself that is going blank or malfunctioning in W10?

Most independent websites build their sites & code to internationally established, & written web standards. Unfortunately Windows 10, MS Explorer, & Edge do not comply with international web standards. They expect all sites to write their code special to suit MS, instead of for international web standards.

So most independent or private sites do not officially support Windows 10, Explorer, & Edge browsers. But they should still work good enough, even though not fully supported.

Our modified SMF core software should be compatible enough with W10 & its native browser. But they change W10 & the Edge browser too much all the for most of us to keep up with WTF they're doing (or not doing, or breaking) anymore.

It's been a while since I've had W10 on any machines, so don't have its native Edge browser either. Nobody's dropped a W10 machine off for me to fix in a while either. I either switched my regular customers & friends to Windows 7, or they switched to something else entirely. So I'm stuck in a spot where I hardly personally know anybody locally still on W10 anymore.

However, over 90% of people with Windows 10 or any kind of Windows have known for 20 years that you don not use Explorer or their newer Edge browser for surfing the web because the are not secure, & offer not a shred of any real privacy. Many Windows users use Google Chrome because it comes bundled with so much other software we use, it was forced upon us, or inadvertently, or deliberately installed with the other software. Chrome offers a lot more security, & just slightly more privacy.

I use Pale Moon, a more secure & more private version of Firefox. But recent changes in Pale Moon may force me to go back to Firefox again, or Waterfox... another branch of Firefox. Even an Opera browser works rather well, once you get used to that it works entirely different.

You may try using another browser other than Explorer or Edge, just like most Windows users do. You may also check any ad-blockers or script blockers installed. They're great for blocking annoying ads, clutter, & potentially intrusive scripts from sites you just want to read or view something on, but not want to interact with the site or buy anythng. But those blockers block essential scripts, & dialog boxes required to interact with most sites, buy something from a site, donate, or use special features.

It's highly recommended that you shut off, diable ad & script blockers at Betty's, or may an exception for Betty's on them if you want to interact with us, or use special features. You won't even see our hit counter at the top with some of those blockers. This spring, Betty's will have been around 24 years. There has never has been anything bad, or intrusive at Betty's that needs blocking. Blockers may block stuff you need here, or some cool stuff too.

Can anybody else confirm the problem with Windows 10 here, or is it just that stupid Edge browser that's a problem?

I've tested our sites on every other version of Windows, Linux, OSX, android, & just about all other browsers (set up properly or in their default settings). Everything seems to be working fine. We even have a special version of Betty's made just for phones & pocket tablets, that is sent to their device automatically. It even works on pretty old phones.
