    Stovers
    Stovers Giselle has been zapped again. Toads made her last and final attempt to come back. I will be migrating the site to a new platform in the near future. Will keep you all posted x

      Jenni Good decision, Stovers. Am in the queue right behind Mezz. This may be premature question but I assume we'll have to start over (& join the new thing), so should everyone save their stuff (plus comments) that they might want to upload onto new platform?

      Whisks Chipping in here: There's almost no chance we'll have the resources or the (wo)manpower or the stomach to migrate everything, especially since it'll work differently. So yes. Save what you want to keep

      Stovers Yes. All will have to rejoin if they wish. WE can't take this format with us, but I have been spending a lot of time trying to find something similar. I think I may have a possibility now, though. However, it will take a while to get it up and limping. I have taken screen shots of Lombard Street. Forum headings and stuff to aid in replicating - to an extent - what we have here. I've also taken screen shots in the back office where email addresses reside. I'll probably sent a bulk post out to all nearer the time and will also give oodles of notice. It would be a good idea to save anything you might want to reload to the new site. Or even stuff you want to save for your own records. Migration of everything here would be a task beyond comprehension.

      Jill I'm sure it will all work out in the end and let's hope a fresh start/new platform will bring lots of new and stimulating activity. :)

      BellaM Oh bummage. What a palaver to have to move site. But worth it if it stops people getting zapped.

      Old Fat Prop 100% behind this. I need to pm you to have an argument over the usual. You need to share the load now.

    Spisky. Giselle has asked me to say that she is thinking of you x. Her email reached my inbox on Friday, but, sadly, I didn't see it until this morning. My apologies to both. (Looks like she's been zapped again :-()

    Thank you all. I wanted something that felt personal, and not one of the "usual suspect" poems that are read at funerals and similar events. I remember my mum telling me about E.Pauline Johnson when I was a little girl, on a visit to Stanley Park, ...

    Thanks, Sandra. Kind of you to say - although writing it did lower my mood quite alarmingly.

    Whisks OMG. Watching an old episode of Dynasty, not seen for over 30 years. It's so dire I can't stop watching. How times and standards and acting change.That was then. This is now.

    Thank you all. I'm lucky insofar as I inherited 9 photo albums in all. Not all family, and not all labelled, but was able, with the help of the above couple's daughter, a much loved aunt who died in 2000, to identify quite a few of them.
