   John C  Time to remind your friends to come to this wonderful site. Participation seems to have dropped per Quantcast. Don't want to loose it.

   Spahrkl  We all know that there isn't a free lunch anywhere, right?
So, I would like to ask people on this site to contribute financially, every little bit helps, so we don't have so many popups! Please help support this sight!

   Bettijo  I am not surprised. I rarely log on anymore when this used to be my first site to visit each morning. We have lost so many of our "old timers." Some, I have been told, were barred from Lucianne.Com. I miss those folks and their thought-provoking comments. I also miss the man (name escapes me ) who used to post the gorgeous flower pictures. Sorry, John, but Lucianne just isn't "wonderful" any more. And, I am sick of birthday cakes! If anyone finds a site to replace this one, please let us know as I miss the comradery we used to share.

   MeiDei  I am sorry you feel that way Bettijo as I've always enjoyed your posts; sorry too that the cakes annoy you - but seem to be appreciated by others. No hard feelings here.

I miss some "old timers" too: Mr & Mrs Cow, YNaught, Yotty Here, RakeKing, Wrightwringer, NuGoddess to name just a few. But I've noticed others have joined in, probably people who have been readers more than posters in the past. For years (since the Monica mess ) I didn't post on The Connection - not wanting to intrude on what seemed to be private or long term friendships. I welcome the posts from those who are new to the walls just as much as I regret missing the others & wonder if they're having computer problems (haven't we all at one time ) or facing serious medical problems (again, haven't we all ) or have passed from life (CaptTet, theMotherCO ). An illness kept me home & Rake's movie quizzes put aside my lurking & with the encouragement & acceptance by those who frequented that Wall - well, here I am - annoying you with the Cakes (chuckle! ) after having learned from others here how to find them, and get them in & out of my computer. Saw your suggestion for a separate wall for them & surprise - I & 17 others agree with you! The hope is that they're never looked upon as a measure of popularity, the idea of just posting one cake at the beginning of each month for all who share a birthday that month has been a serious consideration - perhaps posting them on the under-used Events Wall instead -what do you (or anyone else reading here ) think?

Finally, putting thoughts to sentences & posting leaves some of us vulnerable to misunderstanding by others. That's a sad consequence of not being able to hear the mirth, or recognize the naughty-but-nice tease, the compassion for those in distress or the sincerity of a prayer of faith. When opinions differ, and challenged - feelings can get hurt - arguments develop; sad that some will ban themselves rather than by Staff. I hope you will reconsider leaving The Connection, but if not - know that I wish you well as I'm sure others do also.

   StormCnter  Thank you, John and Spahrkl, for reminding us that is free to us, but not free to our hostess. There is staff and bandwidth to take care of. We all should donate from time to time if it is possible.

   Gram77  Are you speaking of SKYPE? That would be really great. My computer has this feature but I have never got it up and running because no one I correspond with has that feature. Would this be a difficult job for Luis to set up?

   HopeandGlory  Would it be possible to increase the number of replies per page to 20 instead of the current 10 per page? . . . thank you for your consideration.

   Lonestar Jack  After you post a comment on the second set of items -- you are returned to the first set of items. It would be nice to return to the second set or better yet -- to the one you posted to.

   Bettijo  I would like a button "Go to top of page." Many sites have this and it saves slowly scrolling up. Thanks.

   MeiDei  Do you have a "home" key on your keyboard? Or "Page Up" it's what I use.

   Bettijo  Thanks, Mei and Storm, I never thought to use those keys. I have been scrolling up, slowly, all this time.

   MaxWedge  I was just thinking this morning how nice it would be to have a "go to top of the page" button. I didn't know about the "Home" and "Page Up" keys. Thanks everyone.

   BirdsNest  We need a crafts wall as suggested by another member. There are many who are talented, this would be a nice addition to the Connection.

   Gram77  A craft wall would be great, but even when it's a good idea it seems to take a long time for it to happen. How come?

   NotaBene  Yes, I asked today about a craft wall in the Main Lobby. I did not know BirdsNest had requested it too. I am supporting her proposal. We had a lot of fun on the coffee klatch today showing our knitting/crocheting masterpieces.
