Problem

Ok, just got this netbook and I need some help setting it up When I open up internet explorer it goes to my home page, and i have an address bar, my problem is that I dont have those little tabs that can take me to another page

For example

1st tab i am on fishtown.us

then I can click on the other tab and go to another address

well i dont have any other tabs

if i want to go somewhere else, i need to type the address in the 1 and only address bar and it will take me to the new address, but NOW i CANT SWITCH BACK TO FISHTOWN.US I have to retype it back in the address bar.

I want to be able to be on multiple pages, any ideal how to fix this?

Impromptu

Hello All.

I'm trying to get a few volunteers to help clean a small part of the hood for the holidays. If it's not raining in the morning, we will be meeting at 10am in Emerald Park (Emerald and Dauphin St.) It would be great if some of you could come out and help. I didn't really plan this one so I don't have many tools and other supplies. I'll run to the hardware in the morning to buy a couple boxes of contractor bags. Bring gloves and any other tools/supplies you can.

Thanks and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Olde Philadelphia Bar

I haven't been to the ye Olde in quite some time, but I ventured there this past weekend. What a great time I had. If you would have told me the crowd that was in there, I would swear you were lying. There were "normal guys" like me, hipsters, old ladys, blue collar workers, Kenzos, white, black (can I say that?), spanish and you name all getting along having a good time, and not to mention karaoke. You can't smoke in there which was awesome. Not pretentious at all, no bartender attitude smugness, and the prices were right on. Go Olde Philly!!!

Attn: Residents in the Trenton and Sergeant Area

It has come to our attention that the builders of the two new houses at Trenton and Sergeant have FILLED in a storm drain with concrete while laying new sidewalks. As a result, flooding has occurred in nearby residents' basements.

If you live in this area and have been affected, PLEASE call the water department at 215-685-6300 and let them know. It is the water department's job to service the storm drains in the city and we all know that things don't get done unless a bunch of people call in about it.

Do not let this irresponsible developer decrease the value of the surrounding homes by forcing homeowners to get sump pumps installed!!!!

Has anyone mastered the art of garbage pickup around Thanksgiving?

Regular trash day is Thursday... does that mean pickup is on Saturday?

Anybody go to the EKNA meeting on Monday?

Okay, I'm hoping that THIS topic won't ruffle any feathers...

Did anyone go to the EKNA meeting on Monday and see the presentation by the guy about the plan to redo the waterfont parks? I thought it was really cool and would like to remain optimistic about the possibilities!

I especially liked the plan for Penn Treaty...naturalizing the waterfront would be really neat.
