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, but if clicking on forum on 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.

  • Merry Christmas (an original poem)


    They come into this world with eyes of blue.
    They've been sent here to tell the truth.
    Cold stethoscope hints to a life of sadness-
    But his parents' hearts are full of gladness.

    We oppress them, we beat them
    and make them follow orders...
    But little children's eyes
    are like little tape-recorders.

    And once we are old and need them to help us,
    history unfolds and then they remind us...
    Forty-five years old--Red White and Blue eyes
    Recorded every lie, you told throughout your whole life.

    We wish we hadn't taught them 'time is money'
    Our fate rests with them, isn't it funny?
    We taught them to be greedy and grovel for cash
    But now that we're needy, we take it all back.

    They cover their ears with expensive head-phones
    They can't hear us from the retirement home
    Instead of loving money-we should have taught them to love.
    Now they're always running and never have enough.

    They come into this world with eyes of blue
    They've been sent here to tell the truth.
    But we have taught them - lying is better.
    And now our Christmas? A re-gifted sweater.
