There you go... just a little taste of what's going on in the forum. I always have such a hard time narrowing down the topics I share with you, but can you see why? It's good stuff! Thanks, ladies, for all that you share to make this forum fantastic!
One last housekeeping item. In order to keep the forum squeaky clean and as spam-free as possible, I have had to move to a system of personally approving each new member myself. While this works wonderfully for keeping out the spam, it means that you might have to wait a day or so for my approval to come through, or as much as 3 days if it comes into my inbox on a Friday or Saturday. I hate to do this and make you wait when you're eager to start using the forum, but please know that I'm doing it so that we can all continue to enjoy the forum minus ads, yucky pictures, etc, etc. Thanks for your understanding!
