    tech gurus, help me!

    Go into the incognito mode and try it then. If all is well, then it is an extension that is causing the problem.

    That is what you never know lol. All of my plugins worked fine, and all my settings were the same as before the upgrade. You could always download the old version again if there is a problem. I downloaded the "aurora" (pre-beta) release of FF last night and my extensions didn't work, so I uninstalled it. It installed a new instance of the browser. In other words it didn't upgrade my existing FF installation, so I uninstalled it easily. If you mean "Lightening Newtab" then yes. I just installed it on the Chrome beta and it works fine.

    Try this: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/beta.html It will install the newer beta version. It might fix your problems.

    I'm having the same problem with Firefox. Sometimes the browser disappears and a few seconds it reappears. I can't stand that. I think it's a plugin called Lastpass. Without it, I can't remember all the passwords. I did reset FF and it kept all the plugins and settings that I had. How is that going to fix anything? The problem persists. I have switched over to Chrome (again). Problem solved.

  12. Come on Aussie cousin lovers. Here is a good chance to get the word out there for everyone's benefit. It sounded like she wanted to do a balanced show. I think Prof Alan Bittles (sp) will even be there possibly. They may be looking for an American too, to talk about the laws here.
  13. Hi KC, thanks so much for the chat before ? sounds like your website has helped a lot of people, and I was certainly very glad to come across it for our research! As I mentioned, we?re really interested in speaking with cousin couples here in Australia. If there?s any way you could put the word out, that would be much appreciated. You don?t by any chance still have contacts for the couples featured in this program do you? I?d love to speak to them if possible. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/360/kissing-cousins/3985158. Below is a short introduction about the program for you to share around, or if there are more direct ways you can think of putting me in touch with people, it?d be much appreciated. Sometimes general shout-outs get a bit lost in the internet ether! We?re recording our program on October 23, so trying to contact people as soon as possible. Thanks again so much for your help on this. ?SBS TV?s Insight program in (www.sbs.com.au/insight) is producing a show about cousin couples. We?re urgently looking to speak with couples in Australia about their experiences. Have you faced stigma or opposition from family or friends, or have they been very accepting? Where have you gone to for support? Do you have children and did you and your partner get advice from a genetic counsellor? Insight wants to explore the taboo around cousin marriage in some communities, and look at the reasons why other communities have embraced it. Please contact elisep@sbs.com.au or 02 9430 3843. All conversations can be confidential and off the record.? Have a good evening, cheers, Elise

    Casting call

    I'm not endorsing this, just reposting it. You guys know the standard warning we give... -KC ------ Hey KC- I'm beginning the very early stages of research and outreach into the world of cousin marriages for a new cast contingent documentary TV series following the lives of married cousin couples and I'd love to talk with you and get any insight or direction and also ask if you wouldn't mind my posting our "casting call" on the site. I work for Happy Owl Media a Brooklyn based reality and documentary production company that was founded in 2009 by partners Kathleen Minton and Pauline Mason. With over 20 years of combined production experience and 300 hours of television shows, Happy Owl is well respected for great storytelling, compelling characters and cinematic style known for ratings-driven, award-winning television- you can get a better idea of the company if you'd please click on...http://happyowlmedia.com/ I'm a development/casting producer so my job is to go out and see if I can find a dynamic cast of people to follow with the cameras in order to paint a compelling enough portrait of that world to keep viewers glued to their TV sets. The series is cast contingent, meaning the cast green lights the budget but also the cast defines in some respects the show- because there really is no script so at this point in terms of what the series would be about it's essentially about a vivd group of married couples who also happen to be cousins. They basically just need to be fun to watch. I'd really love the opportunity to speak with you and get any insight into the world of cousin marriage, where might be good to find people and what to look out for and appreciate any feedback whatsoever. Also would be happy to give you any more detail on myself or Happy Owl Media. Here's the casting call copy: COUSIN COUPLES TV DOC SERIES Major cable network seeking married couples ages 18-55 who are legally wed to their first cousins for a new documentary series. Did you fall head over heels for a biological cousin, have become each others soul mate and want to show the world how there's nothing wrong with it? A new documentary series is looking to explore the world of first cousin matrimony and would love to talk with you. Please contact Manny at HappyOwlCasting@gmail.com ASAP Thanks again for your time, energy and any help whatsoever. Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.

  16. OMGness, if I pursued every girl I ever had a dream about -- well I would be a busy man lol. Hey last night I dreamed about my cousin/wife's sister! It wasn't romantic but very friendly. We were drinking, partying and having a grand 'ol time just like when we were "kids" lol.

    Happy Annivetsity to us all!

    Yeah Dawn was one of the first people I remember meeting on here. I don't think her husband liked her coming to this site since their teenage son didn't know they were cousins.
  18. 2013 marks the 15th anniversity of this website and 19 years of marriage to my first cousin. We are all getting old!

    I agree Hawk 100%. I would get married tomorrow. Now if they had people gunning for them, well -- there are warmer places to live than Illinois. And we have iced tea and grits. I wouldn't live anywhere that didn't have grits. Otherwise I would have to have them imported from the grit farms.

    Robert, nooooo it doesn't. Now you just wasted 20 minutes of my time. I looked up all of those citations. It's the same info we have here. If I quoted from Wikipedia in a college essay, I would get heavily penalized and lectured. Or maybe kicked out of the class for being a moron. Wikipedia is not a credible source for anything! It's an encyclopedia for kids by kids. The straight deal is laid out in this thread if you care to read it. The law, as it pertains to 1/2 cousins, will remain ambiguous until ruled upon by a judge.

    In love with my 2nd cousin :/

    Well you could certainly just wait. But I suspect he feels the same way about you. It often works like that. So take it slow and see where it takes you. A good way to approach him would be to say something like, "If you were not my cousin ..." and see how he responds. My cousin and I were very close for 5 years. I had no idea than I had feeling for her until one morning I woke up and realized that I was completely smitten. It was a shocker but I knew that I had to have her. Yeah, it was just bizarre. Luckily, she felt the same way. However she turned down my marriage proposal 10 times saying it wouldn't work for this reason or that. That was 18 years ago since we married! Would I marry a cousin again? Yeah. But I would think long and hard about it. Everyone will not accept it. So, the question is: does that matter to you?
