As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Any recommendations...nice towns or small cities?

    Wasn't sure where to post this topic but hoping some of you might help. Might have to eventually leave Los Angeles due to the high costs of rents. Am retired with an elderly mother. Any nice places you can recommend? Can't do Snow country anymore though. Thanks!
    It's important to have the right convictions, but deep convictions without divine fellowship turns us into mere zealots. If we hold the truths of the Gospel without spending time with the Giver of the Gospel, we'll lose the internal sweetness of our faith.

    Texas is dirt cheap compared to LA. plenty of smaller towns within driving distance of large cities - stay away from the coast.

      The Carolinas are nice and I'm thinking about Missouri or Tennessee

        Thanks much to both of you. It's hard to make major moves, taking it day by day right now. Originally from PA but not good on the ice!

        I have a friend who moved to Tyler, TX years ago. I have a cousin in Gulfport, MS...imagine it's nice but then they get hurricanes!

          Florida has no state income tax or snow, and the first $75k of your home is not taxed. Very good for fixed incomes.

            Yes, Tennessee is good. Near Knoxville. Its in a valley and they hardly ever get any snow. Mild winters.

            South Carolina is iffy. My sister lives there and they are getting some of that hurricane.

              Those high costs are the result of Leftist politics. So if you intend to vote Democrat STAY IN LA. Nobody wants you importing your ecomony crippling socialism to their state.

                Lol, I'm laughing alot at your statement! First of all, I am not a Democrat....I am registered as a Republican! I have been born again since 1972, minored in missions, care for my 87 year old mother who is home bound. Am I a danger to your State? : )

                  Just making sure. Can't be too cautious. Really we need the wall to separate California from the rest of the country as much as we need the wall with Mexico. And another wall with New York wouldn't hurt either.

                      I'm sure David doesn't mean any harm by it. I live in Texas and we're constantly inundated with people who want to move here because it's cheap, then try to "make Texas blue," as their slogan goes. Those of us in these "flyover states" like our standard of living. But some come here, and then want to us to do things the way they did them back home. It's annoying.

                        Is was going to recommend Bayfield Wisconsin, but it is definitely Snow Country.

                          How do you fell about extreme humidity? I ask because I never built up a tolerance for it and have trouble visiting the southeast. My scope is fairly small, but one of my favorite small cities is Reno. It is not all about gambling and is fairly close to Tahoe if you need a quick change of climate and scenery. My favorite is Bend, OR but they do get a fair amount of snow in the winter.

                            It's a "progressive" strategy, actually. Well documented.
