Guys it was NOT my intent to come across in that way.  There is a typo 
in the reference you make.  - it seriously change things. The quote:

"I will NOT go out to a bank ...."   Should have been "It will NOT go out to a
bank...  simple meaning that none of my attenpt to get it to retrieve the
banking transaction - would not result in the software connecting to a bank or
credit card institution. Basically nothing happened. ????   My bad, the t was
missing -  I should have been IT.

Some play you all asked where I am located and I forgot to respond to that
part.  I am in Columbia, Maryland.

Additionally,  You ask for me to review the wording.  Very Happy to do that -- 
HOW, were do I go etc. and what login is required??

Thanks for the support.
PS:  Mint update doesn't seem to further update.   I have used Ubuntu,  Centos
and I could change for this purpose if repositories for them would have a later
version.   Or as with some distros, they have various packages all ready
installed. Like Libre Office etc.   Is there a distro,  ISO with  KMyMoney
installed.  I could run it in Virtualbox and get familiar with it.  Actually, 
I run  Quicken in a Virtualbox with WIN 10 as the Isolation provides a bit more
security. - As "Box" is shutdown normally and some what hidden.
Anyway let make ammends somehow.  If you want to edit my earlier imput - I am
happy with that..
