STOP BEFORE SOME GETS KILLED!

STOP MEANS STOP


 No matter how it reads, whether it says PARE, ALTO,
ARRET, HALT, OT JUST PLAIN STOP

YOU HAVE TO STOP!

A TICKET IS VERY EXPENSIVE. 
A LIFE IS PRICELESS!


IF YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY TO THROW AROUND, FEEL FREE TO DONATE TO A LOCAL CHARITY AND STOP BEING A LAWBREAKER. 

I GUARANTEE, THE FIRST PERSON HURT BY YOUR CARELESSNESS WILL WIND UP OWNING YOUR PROPERTY HERE AND ANYWHERE ELSE YOU OWN.

 Reposting this as is one again pertains to some residence that have either bad vision or bad judgment. STOP AT STOP SIGNS. don't be surprised if you get pulled over by the police, we'll be happy to take your pic and splash you on my blog under the listing of Local criminals.

GLOBAL RADIO STREAMING

-
Hi all,
I'm sure many will find this site interesting, it is an exercise in Global Radio Streaming. There are thousands of radio stations, represented by green dots scattered across the globe. Simply click on a green dot and an attempt will be made to tune in the station. Not all stations are available at all times. Have fun, but please don't stay up all night, as this can become addicting:

HOW MANY OF US HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTED DEVICE?

Lanny's question is a good one, but it does not go far enough. below is a graphic showing the number of INTERNET connected devices by year since 2012 and projected out to 2020. The INTERNET as a CV amenity is not just about Computers. INTERNET in every Unit is something that will increasingly add value to our property and pleasure and convenience to our lives. Look below the chart for a short list of devices that use the INTERNET.
-
Statistic: Internet of Things (IoT): number of connected devices worldwide from 2012 to 2020 (in billions) | Statista
-
Desktop Computer, Laptop, Mobile phone/Smartphone, Games Console, Portable media player, Tablet, Connected or Smart TV, E-reader. IP Security Camera.....Etc.
How many of us, our Children, our Grandchildren have one or more of these devices. Let's move into the 21st. Century. The choice will be yours.

HOW MANY CV RESIDENTS HAVE A COMPUTER?

I've heard different guesses (and some assertions) on how many residents in the Village have a computer. I would estimate that about half of our association's 26 units have someone who uses a computer, but our association may not be typical—and neither may yours be typical.

This would be a nice thing to know for when decisions are being made about Wi-Fi and Broadband, etc. The number of computer users is growing, of course, but what is it NOW?


It occurred to me that one way to find out might be to have WPRF ask unit owners if they have a computer (which they use) when WPRF sends out their 2017 coupons. Ask owners to complete a simple YES or NO form and return it. Is it too late for this? Would this work or is there a better way? I think that unfortunately a good deal of guesswork about this has been going on.
