      This is really going to take some getting used to.  Do you have to go back after each series of posts on one subject?  I keep having to go back to the beginning to see the next post.  Is there a next button that I am missing?  I don’t find this as user friendly or after 9 years I just knew what to expect on the old board.

      Have a great day and NEVER give up.  Cancer really hates that!

          Hi Debbie – You do have to go back to the main bulletin board to go the next topic.  When you are in the post, you can go to back to the bulletin board using the "Return to Bulletin Board" button.  I will add this to my list of enhancements. 

          Let me know if you have any other questions.  – Kathy

            Gee Debbie, I figure we’re never too old.  (Well, that is my story and I am sticking to it.)

            I had to look for the button at the top of the threads that says something like ‘return to post’…at first I thought it looked like a pair of binoculars, but on second look, I don’t know what it is…maybe some people?

            It seems like the responses just move on down, kinda like Yahoo! groups but not nearly so confusing.  If you want to just reply to the author, you go back to the original and hit reply under the little pencil icon. 

            You’re right about being used to the old format.  I figure every little thing makes me a wee bit more computer savvy.  Still have a long way to go!

            Wow!  NINE years.  Awesome and congratulations!  I used to live in Royal Oak…Hubs worked for Taubman and I taught 7th grade at a Catholic School in Southfield (St. Bede which is closed now).  I really liked it even though I was a very displaced Southern girl.  We got our now 13 year old Beagledogz as pups when we there.  They (and we) have lived in OH, NC, AL, FL, and SC since then.

            Take good care, K.

              You are right.   In this computer world someone is always fixing things whether they are broke or not.  Now it takes an hour to get around on this site.
