  • Edie is fine. I have noticed your name for years and didn't realize what a treasure you are. Thank you so much for the friend request too. I am going to be exploring your projects now and really excited. Keep spreading positivity and knowledge :)

  •  What a fantastic cover image! Whew!!! 

  • Hi thanks for the addition. You're giving me hope here. Great. I will call you this evening, so it's not the middle of the night for you. :-) 

  • Thanks for the add, Looking forward to working together!

  • Thank you for the friend's request, I'm looking forward to sharing with you here on the site :)

  • Have you had a chance to root for that method to list Groups?  Not bugging you about it, but one of our co-admins passed away and trying to easily list the groups he had created....

  • Kos suggested I ask you: Is there a way to get a list of the groups we have established on our site?  We have more than 250 groups and I want to put together a list of groups to help members find what may be interesting to them without having to step through page after page of groups.

  • Hi, JFarrow, first it's funny we are both Floridians! :)

    second, sorry to bother you but I heard good things about you and frankly I don't know what else to do and I would appreciate your input on my post. I'm so lost, if and when you have time could you possibly give some advice on what I might do or might have done that I should change? thanks in advance.

  • I feel like giving a gift, because I care today and every day I am there to you and to all, I am happy knowing you are a good friend to have and for me it is good to be loved. You matter :)
  • Thank you for still being my friend here and for being a great person to have around, I appreciate and welcome you for all you are and so much more. Happy latest holiday, I'll keep you in my thoughts.
