Gemini posted this on the previous forum - and it's still true today.

:wave: Hi Everyone:

As you know we have had some copyright issues lately that we have had to address. Unfortunately, it is going to change the way you have been used to posting. Please read the following carefully:

DO NOT POST ANY GRAPHICS, animations, or photos without following the TERMS of USE from the site where they originate. Just because the heading on the site says they are free, does not mean you can copy them and attach them to a post. You MUST follow the designated method of use in order to comply with the copyright regulations.

BEFORE YOU POST: If you cannot find THE TERMS OF USE, have a problem figuring out how to post from a particular site or are unsure about its copyright requirements, please post a request in the Posting Copyrighted Material is Prohibited thread HERE to have someone help you.

There are a number of sites listed HERE that have the terms of use already defined. Each site has it’s own method of posting. The majority of them use the CODING system to share their product. Please see JudyB’s post HERE explaining how to use this method of posting your graphic. Once you become familiar with it, you will find it isn’t that difficult.

If you have difficulty with any of the other methods, again, please post a request for help HERE and someone will be happy to help you.

This is for YOUR protection because ultimately, YOU, The Poster, are the one responsible and will be the one that will be open to whatever repercussions come from disregarding the copyright requirements!

We all have to get used to this new way of posting and it will take some effort on everyone’s part.

Thank you for your co-operation!

Please take the time to read the following!

Good afternoon, I thought I had better try posting in here although I don't have a lot of confidence in myself at learning something new.

We had quite a lot of snow this winter and then last week we got hit with a lot of rain which caused problems to the south of us and to the east. Just terrible flooding.

When we had the snow I had quite a lot of birds at my feeder. I'm going to try to post at least one of them.

Hello In The NEW Hollow....

Judy and Bev and all involved... thank you for your hard work!

Just making a quick fly by for now. I wanted to see if I could post anything. Our snow went away for almost 2 weeks then 2 days ago we got 5-6 inches and still flurrying. My Tulips were just barely coming up then it snowed. I planted 100 bulbs last Sept. Hope they all come up. Today is suppose to be my last PT session for my knee. I've been going for 5 months... 3 days a week. In that 5 months time I did miss 2 weeks because of waiting for the insurance to get back to me. I've had about 48 hours of PT. I am doing better after the Manulipuation almost 2 weeks ago. I'm not 100% but doing well.

I love ALL the photos you ladies have posted. I will post a photo of yesterday of the snow in the front yard. Have to get ready for PT. Hope everyone is well and keep safe out there if you have to drive in the snow!
OK Couldn't get my photo to appear... just got a small square box with the word IMAGE... will figure it out later... I hope. :dunno:

Good Morning.....

I am so glad to see folks finding their way here...glad to see you Jean and Diane, and Bev, it's good that this is not just added more lots of snow like most years. :) We have azaleas blooming beautifully. It was funny watching my kitty Pebbles go to the top of the grandfather clock, then cry to get someone to pull the tall scratching post over so she could jump back. Then Mieko went on the perch below her and they played footsie. Mieko has the most beautiful thick non-shedding coat and very short.

Tomorrow Andi goes to be tested to become a therapy dog like Bleu. Bleu is now 11 and showing signs (strong ones) of wanting to be done with that part of her life and just play with Andi, walk and sleep and that is what should be right as she has earned it. If Andi passes I will likely retire Bleu although there is a glitch. One of the residents as me if I could bring her in on occasion and I am not sure if it would be a good idea or not, so thinking on it, pray for me for clarity. Bleu gets tired doing the getting into their minds kind of work.

Heck I will post a picture of my azaleas from another year, they look similar!
smiles and happy Friday....I find the new forum, must easier...once I figured out how to get to the last post in a thread (the little arrow next to the person's name who posted the one before)...and pictures I figured out by happenstance. Let's see if I can do it again.

Bev, I just watched this and it sure did make me smile. Just goes to show animals love music too! Wow that was really cool. I guess she is a real pied piper. I bet those cows would follow her anywhere. :rh:

Good Afternoon....the therapy dog training went very well. It is most likely that Andi, at 14 months, passed. She just sat at my feet with all the dogs around and was a great girl. One of the trainers wants to get a dog like her and took the information about the breeder. Bleu, if this really happens, will semi retire, or actually even if not, will. That means she can go less times, less time at a time (way too many times, eh?). I was happily surprised after getting lost trying to find the place.

I adore the snow pictures. Diane, beautiful, Bev, gorgeous. We are way south of all y'all so Spring has definitely sprung here. Don'g forget Daylight Savings Time.......tonight. We, for two, are not ready for it and wish it would wait.

See you soon....

I love the Peggy's Cove picture Bev. You can see the "leftover" snow. When we were going to the airport in September we drove up to see if we could see it again, but it was mobbed (a ton of cruise ship tour buses) so we left and went to the airport to come home. That little area cannot handle all those folks.

We too had a great Sunday, long walk, some planting, and a surprise invite to dinner at Catherine's house. It was great to see them all after a bit of time. The kids were happy to see us. I even got to go "Big Bad Wolf" chasing with 4 year old Liam. We managed to chase out all of them from (a) the yard, (b) the garage and finally the imaginary one upstairs - Liam admitted that one did not exist. Have a great week.....P.S. You have to sing to Big Bad Wolf chase...you know the tune, sing along.

Carolyn great to hear Andi did so well. :thumlft:

Well all March is always unpredictable here. Snow today. When I left for work this morning I figured it wouldn't be that bad. Well 3in already and hasn't stopped. They closed the plant and sent us home early.


We got a new small cat tree for the kitties and placed it near the cat bed (planters) in the front window. Zoe loves it and thinks the top his hers alone.
