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.

  • Has anyone ever kept a gerbil as a pet?

    Our daughter is thinking of getting one for her 11 year old son. He's a good kid that takes good care of any pets he has had. I know gerbils are gentle and less nippy than hamsters and tend to be more awake in the daytime than hamsters. Also, they don't drink much so they don't urinate much to make the cage smelly.

    I did a little research and what I read says they shouldn't be kept in plastic cages with plastic mazes because they chew on plastic and could ingest the stuff, plus, they like to tunnel and should be provided a bedding that allows them to tunnel. Is this true? But should they have an exercise wheel? Aren't they all plastic?

    My daughter has a 10 gallon glass fish tank with a mesh top that they used once for another type of pet that they no longer have. Would that be big enough? Although grandma and grandpa could get him a 20 gallon for Christmas...

    but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.” ― Martin Luther
