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.

    not sure what it is like in summer in alaska.

    However not too bad here - we have had hail, frosts, winds 130 kph, last night was warm 8 degrees above freezing.

    Yesterday we were going out had just a cardigan on, run back inside got my blanket top and gloves it felt freezing.

    Of course weather depends were you are the snow fields are covered, Darwin not so cold. In fact in winter southerners tend to travel to Queensland when they are sick of the cold, if they can afford it. One of my sons who lives a couple of hours away did get a pathetic snowman listed on the web. He made it on their upstairs balcony. It can get colder if the weather comes up from Antarctica. Hobart really copes it then.
    Cool, for the most part. It got up to 81 deg. F. In Juneau the week before we were there. A real heat wave! But it is usually in the 60's along the coast, a little warmer in the interior. Also, we were there in middle June and it is a little warmer in July and August.

    I don't like wearing hats, either, but I never needed one there. In the South, I only need to wear a fuzzy cap over my ears when it is really windy, when it is cold. If it is still, then I don't usually need it. I like cold weather if it isn't windy and I cam dressed properly. Wakes me up and puts roses in my otherwise pale cheeks.

      Normally we have 17 days over 90 during the entire summer. So far this year, we've had 12. We've even gotten to 100. It has been so hot, humid and we've had a lot of pollution. They say on the weather reports, if you have a respiratory problem don't go out. I've been hiding in my house a lot. Yesterday was nice though. My husband and I went to Lake Michigan. They have a new section there of what the prairie was like before the city was built. It was really beautiful with a great view of the lake and the Chicago skyline. I walked about a mile. I hope I can do it again.

        I prefer the cold weather to the heat. It is unbearable when we have days of extreme heat.

          I hate it when you can fry eggs on the roads. We are starting to get more humid weather which I really hate, one of the main reasons I hate Sydney. Last year we had a storm which caused a massive amount of asthma attacks. So many people went to hospital, few deaths and the emergency system could not cope. Hope we don't see that again. I did not know and had stayed inside so I was blessed.

          Sounds like a me a beautiful place. I hope you do it again too.

            This is a picture of the inside of the prairie. There are a lot of birds and butterflies living here, also some cactus that are native to Chicago.

            https://www.google.com/search?q=pict...jDQU6h9LLyfoM:

            This is a picture of the area between the depth of the prairie and the lake. About 1000 feet back is where my husband took beautiful pictures of boats on the lake, the Skyline and Navy Pier. The lake was the most beautiful color I ever saw in my life. It was a brilliant blue but far along the horizon it was purple. I have a rollator and I did ok walking along the wood chips but at the end I hit an area of sand and my poor husband had to carry it down to the sidewalk. We decided to walk back along the long sidewalk you see in this picture. The wind was blowing waves about 5 feet which is high for the lake and they exploded when they hit the concrete and washed over for a short way. My face is now red. I wish I could show you my husband's pictures. They make these look plain. The flowers were bright and very high. Some were over my head. They were beautiful most were yellow but there were some that were purple and fuchsia. I think these pictures were taken a month or so ago because everything has grown much taller and many more flowers.

              nature is is so impressive, you can see God's work. It is so pretty. I do not know what a rollator is? My dad was a boat builder. There is a place not far from here where the waves crash against the rocks and cliff face going up two or more storey high. I love watching the waves.

                This is my Lumex Rollator. I have the foot things but I haven't attached them to mine yet. I have a lung problem. When I walk I start to pant. I should be using oxygen but I don't like to do that. The Rollator has a seat so that if you get tired you can just stop where you are and sit down and rest a bit. I don't have it too badly yet but most places I go don't have benches so this thing is wonderful. If you get really tired you can put the foot holders on the bottom push the back rest to the front and use it like a wheel chair. I haven't come close to needing that yet but I bought this so in case I get much worse I could do that..I only use it now when I go out for a long walk to exercise.(That for me is about 2 blocks) I need it if I were to walk around my block. But if I drive to the grocery store, I can shop without the rollator just using a shopping cart instead.

                  I need a cane as I am not allowed to fall. I have arthritis in my back and several problems in my right knee. I cannot walk far and was in lots of pain, but instead of an operation which they said I needed, I go to hydro. Warm water pool and do walking and exercises. It has strengthened my knee and I have less pain. Much better than an operation. But I like your rollator and will keep that in mind. I also use the shopping cart when shopping.

                    Ouch, my husband has problems with arthritis and his knee too. Not too bad yet, thank God. Yesterday at the prairie Bill had to carry my rollator over the sand. When he got to the top of the rise he looked terrible. I pushed the rollator to the shade and told him to sit for awhile. They have concrete stones along the path like a fence but they are about 4 feet high so he and I can't jump up to sit on them. I walked over to where the rise was and was able to get down on one. So I sat in the sun. My face is brightly red now but since I have large sunglasses I have this huge white mask on my face. I look like a weird racoon.

                    I hope that you are able to get your knee better. My husband goes for exercises and it seems to help him.

                      thank you the exercises are helping. I am much more stable on my feet, I still cannot walk far on land but going to hydro really makes.

                      I hope you have a miracle healing and that your face heals quickly. I never use to get sunburn but as I have gotten older I do need to be careful. Skin cancer is really bad in this country.

                        Thanks. It looks better today. I'm like you, I watched myself to make sure I didn't get sunburned.

                                You can do that in my dreams too. I also dream of you running away from kangaroos and cuddling koala bears. 😇
