You most certainly can. Just need software designed to do it. Acronis true image will clone the entire disk

I don't know how it works in FL, but here you don't just give it to the staff.
When I lived in Las Vegas almost every old person had one. I referred to it as "old peoples' parking" because like you I was convinced that the doctors there just signed if someone was past a certain age.
Granted pretty much everyone post age 60 has physical issues of some type...just part of the aging process, but not everyone that age is going to have a need for a placard.
Unfortunately I think in some areas with a high concentration of an aging population it almost is automatic for the doctors to just sign it because they can easily justify a medical reason for almost everyone over 60.
Over 60? Come on....I'm way past that and even though you're generalizing you would be more accurate for over 75.
I know I can't get one (never asked) for just having a pinched nerve in my foot that is painful. There is a shot for that. I guess I'm fortunate that I don't need it.
I see so much abuse here at the grocery store it makes me crazy. Young kids getting out of a car with a placard, but I would never accost them re this. The odds are that they don't need it and they're driving grandma's car.

Even my friend whose knees are really bad got one good for only a few months.

Get this crap: my brother was declared disabled (I don't think anyone would argue his was one of only like 3 that are auto-accepted).
My granny got about $7/month in food stamps and asked about bro--lady freaking approved it with NO proof! We used it for water and supplies, naturally, but after he passed, they kept sending them, even though I notified everyone!
We are not thieves. Mom had to drive down and tell them he was gone and stop sending them.
Now spread that disgust to the nation....gross.
Even worse, they give far more to able-bodied corporations, billions and billions more! I fail to see how granny getting $7 a month is breaking the country. Maybe your college educated, christian self can explain that in greater detail? For extra credit, enlighten as to why Exxon and other mega-billion dollar corporations DO deserve welfare (OK- "tax breaks"). BTW, every dollar they take from poor and hungry children, where do you think that money will go? It's not earmarked for infrastructure or even the military. What could possibly be more important that assisting poor Americans?

My college-educated, Christian self....wow....did I offend you and now you're using irrelevant facts to garner a reaction?
I have no idea who you are--and I think I'll keep it that way.
You can research welfare corruption yourself.

I was taunting you because I know you're a teacher and you have zero regard for sentence structure. No wonder you support a party that devalues education. You're not much on it yourself. I've already researched welfare corruption at the individual level and I know it's a drop in the bucket- a mole hill to the mountain of waste involved with corporate welfare. So, you're neither a math not Civics teacher either, are you? Do you have to "no" imaginary people on the internet to engage them?

Yeah, i guess today's Dayton might ssem a downgrade, after picturesque Deutchland....Even though, after awhile overseas...i alway's feel a warmth, landing back here....We had a 21 day Eurailpass, which was a godsend....if it get's cold or you tire of someplace, just walk to the train stations...it was great....it snowed in Munich and Zurich, so we went to Florence, where it was in the 60's....lol...

I thought Republicans value wealthy business owners? Don't you need an education for that? I thought they devalued those who suck off the teat of the working man, those with no education or the desire to get one? Isn't that what YOUR party supports?

More hypocrisy. Go fig.

Your taunts need work.
Not much on education myself....wow again....no, I don't teach math or civics. Yes, I see you have a psychotic passion against corporate, for your own personal reasons, I'm sure. Not really my problem.
But your interest in goading me is flattering, so thank you!

So Tonka Jr. comes down to the living room and tells me that mom said since he's 7 now, he can go to sleep later, at either 8:50 or 9pm, and that I'm supposed to choose. First I've heard of this, so I say 8:50. The 4 yr old comes down and they want to watch tv. So I let them watch the kids on demand channel. At 8:20, the older one tells the other, we have time for one more show, then it will be 8:30 and you have to go to bed, but I don't have to go to bed till 8:50 cause I'm older. Younger one starts wailing that that's not fair. I quietly head upstairs and say good job, MOM. And tell her what just went on. That little stinker. She says she never said any such thing. So I call him up and stone cold bust him.

That's pretty funny, Tonka. LOL
Kids say and do the dardest things sometimes.
I betchya see yourself sometimes in lil' Tonka Jr.

Hey, got my computer fixed and did it myself. I found the owner's manual and read the trouble-shooting guide (this is true), and went through the whole thing.
The last resort option when all else fails was a system restore feature that can be accessed by pressing the F11 key as soon as the company logo appears after the computer is turned on.
Just did it a few minutes ago.

Good for you! Hope there wasn't saved files on there that were very important to you but at least it's working.

By the way, LC -- it's not the seller who is responsible for keeping virus' off your computer. You have to do that. Get Norton (or some other anti-virus -- someone here will know the best) and put it on your computer. Most you can download right from there site and get going on it. It's important to do that.
