Good morning from CT! Am I the first to post in our new thread!

Betsey, yes, I confirm everything you said! I was always under the impression the hostess was the only one that could make any changes, or do any adding etc. on the first page!

I was given the impression it was all so hard and it would take to long to explain to me!!!! Sigh.

Well we left Thorndike last night around 6:15 pm, and drove straight through without any stops. We arrived here about 11:45 pm. We got a bit twisted around when we were about five minutes away, but relied on the GPS to get us here!
Success! I did not sleep well, and got up with Max at 7:30 am! We are still the only ones up!

I have not had coffee because I can't find the filters!!!!

Thank you cheryl for the move!

Betsey when I get home or possibly at some point today, i will check out the books!

Ann, I think you asked if their really was a sign that said COW .....s T Corner! Yes, and it had been there over 40 years!

Coffee coffee coffee!

Good morning!!

I am glad to see some starting to make their way to the new thread. I will be off and on. I am getting ready to go for a run but will be back after that and a shower. I down another 1.5 pounds this morning. Cleaning and scrapping is on my agenda for today.

Tish - It is the hostess that can only change the FIRST POST.

Good Morning on the new thread.

Cathe; yes, I go to My Forumn and click on My Posts... then click the last post I made on our thread... mainly so I can start reading from there.

Your brother made a shortcut by highligting the www line you quoted, then right clicked on it and dragged it to your 'blue (gray) line'.. I'd suggest right clicking on the old 'shortcut' and deleting it then drag the new wwww line to your blue line.

I had a bad night sleeping; terrible dreams and I have been told the part I slept thru was a quick rain storm with lightening even.

I'm painting the kitchen ceiling today but won't start until after I meet my sis for lunch.

We have our son's dog for two days. She's a nuisance but.. oh well.

This is not a problem.....I had gotten to like the other way......because it took me to my last post, and so I rarely missed anything...but this is fine. Good for you Cheryl. I am happy this is not as big a deal as we thought......I know it is a bit time consuming, but we thank you for your patience....I think some of us have been very mislead in the past! cough cough!!!!!!

And yes Tish....many, many times I would ask if I could do something for her because she was so stretched for time...and she always said it would take me longer to explain it and than to do it myself...."it involves my password and other stuff"!!!!! This was said in many different ways, many different times...you heard right. I feel better that I am not the only one that thought that all this time. Again....never to old to learn something !!!!!! I have to laugh now.....and how duped we were...Tish you and I seem to be the only ones who were told that....or didn't know better! Sigh!!!! How funny!!!!!

Sorry about the coffee......If I was close I would bring you an entire pot. LOL They DO drink coffee in that house .....right?????? LOL

I am in for a break from my heat stroke! LOL

I am almost done down the back fence now. I am transplanting a perennial from a big pot, since its now too big for the pot and I think it will do well in the ground at this point......I hope so, this is a big hole I am digging.

ttyl....Cathe I hope you find your way. I think that is what is wrong with someone else setting up stuff for you. Doug did that for me on his computer while I was visiting, and I never could find anything his way....so I just did it my way, and hopefully he will just delete my little shortcut icon on the screen. LOL
