    Forum

    So, What's up with the FORUM?
    Who is still on?
    What's going on?
    A few months ago I lost my HD on this computer, and have not been here for a long time.

    Tom,

    We have our old faithful members who still come back to look from time to time, but actually, it is my fault that the forum is so slow. I have kept it alive simply because I believe that all the effort from everyone is worth so very much. AND I believe that my situation is temporary.

    About 2 years ago, something started going wrong with my health. I quickly found out that most of my prior doctors had died or moved on. The new ones seemed to be caught in a know it all world and were not as open to the complexity of the issues I have had and am still facing. But you know me, don't you? I am determined, and unless they bury me six foot under, I will continue to do my best. Unfortunately, a lot of things had to be put on the back burner, so to say, and Landspro has been one of many.

    I seemed to have finally found a good group of doctors. They are helping, but it seems to be taking forever, and the process of medications has been horrible.

    But, GEE! You know me!

    Thanks to all of you for being here for me!

    A few weeks back I tried to check in, and was told the Landspro was 'Out of Bandwidth'. Because I had not heard back, I was thinking perhaps you had dropped the site until you could get better.
    Hope things go well for you and the new doctors can get you back up to full speed.

    Ann, so sorry to hear of your health issues. Life does have a way of interfering with our activities, but i was so happy to see that the forums were still here. I am just getting back into trying some cloning after my own surprise health battles, wish i could clone a new me, but i will just have to get used to the "redone" me instead. Retirement isn't always what one might expect! But all my old cloned azaleas are about to bloom, and I am so excited to see them looking so much bigger and healthier! They survived my neglect and are going to look wonderful, warms my heart to see the flowers coming out, worth living for!!!
    Take care

    Thank You ALL for Your Prayers and Support

    The medications do seem to be helping quite a bit. It remains to be seen if I will have to have surgery this summer, but for now, at least I am off the treatments and everything looks good. There is no guarantee that even with surgery, this problem will not come back again. I've dealt with it all my life. It simply has never been this severe.


    This is spring break, and I spent yesterday morning trying to figure out the cause of the bandwidth problems. I believe that I have it figured out and have a temporary fix. Unfortunately, I may have to block new registrations for awhile because currently, I am getting at least 1-200 or more (who counts) emails per day for new users (bots). It seems to be a flaw in vBulletin, so I will be pursuing it with them during the summer break. School is out on May 28th, and if I have to have surgery, I will request to wait a few weeks so that I can get some badly needed things done around here, both inside and outside.

    Spring is alive!!! Flowers are starting to bloom. The breeze was blowing which made it difficult to get clear pictures, but I will be posted a few that made it through the droughts, winters and neglect.

    Thanks and Hugs to ALL of you! Rebecca, thanks for emailing me at my school.

    Lots of unknowns right now, but I am hanging in there.

    Just to let you all know, I have to block new registrations for now.

    Hugs to ALL and Thanks to all of you for your prayers!
