    It seems as tho I can't see certain posts. I don't think I posted anything offensive but who knows sometimes the written word sounds different than meant. Could anyone tell me I rather know than keep wondering.

    If I did than I'd like to apologies. Thx love gail

    I think it is extremely unlikely you offended anydobby. Do you mean you
    can't find some of your posts? If so, go to your profile. The missing posts
    may be listed on the Health board (even though you can't find them by
    going directly to the Health board).

    That make any sense?

    Yes, you're right about ambiguities and confusiation. I have written something
    and later found that it could be interpreted in various ways. This can be
    avoided by not posting or sending something for a few days. Then you can
    read it with a fresh perspective and correct problematic passages.

    But how practical is that?

    Here's a famous example:

    Meryl Streep says Vanessa Redgrave is the greatest actress in the world.

    Or: Meryl Streep, says Vanessa Redgrave, is the greatest actress in the world.

    Sweetie, I'm not sure what the problem is. Go to your profile to check on ignored posts. I couldn't see some people's posts and somehow, it was like I wanted to ignore certain posters except that I never did that. This website plays cyber tricks from time to time. As far as I know, you've done nothing wrong. Check it out and let us know.

    Oh, and BTW, if the first post in a thread is deleted, all the responses in the thread will be removed too. Don't know whether this is a factor or not.

    Love, Mikie

    I wrote you a note but now I can't find it. I am guessing that I forgot to submit or something weird like that.

    I still can't figured some things out and I have been on these boards for quite a few years. I also forget to do what I am supposed to do also, like submit when through and stuff like that. My brains are not always where they should be . Hope Mikie, Rock, and Diane helped you figure out your problem. I looked and looked and I can't find my m post but there must be some reason for that, like me not submitting - geez :)!!!

    Diane - Hope all is well with your family and those kitties of yours esp Miss Rosie the new one. Are they all playing nicely - well at least somewhat :)!!

    We broke even at the casino, thank God. Now we are back home and trying to get things back in order. Hope to see you all tomorrow. Have to help weed tomorrow. We are so backlogged in outside work but I do not need any more poison ivy or whatever else that is out there.

    Love to you all,

    8/22/12 1:39 PM Hi Gail !!! / Hi to awl !!

    I've been gone for a few days but doubt if you did anything to hurt anyones feelings. I've been here for quite a few years and I still don't understand some of the crazy things that happen and why.

    Hugz to you my dear and I'm sure things are AOK on the boards with your lost posts. Mikie, Diane and Rock had dome good points !

    Try not to let it worry you to much but I understand that you wouldn't want to hurt anyones feeling, even by mistake.

    Just got back from our overnight trip. We had a good time and won a little money and dh lost a little . So I guess we both broke even (together).

    Diane - hope all things are going well with you all and all those kitties and Rosie :)!!

    TTYAL !



    I found it by going to Granni's profile and checking her posts on the Health Board.

    But, all of a sudden, I couldn't see Jole's posts. Sho 'nuff, when I checked my profile, she was on the ignore list. This has happened with other people too. I think there are cyber pixies who play tricks on us.

    Love, Mikie

    I never even looked at the ignore post and I guess I pushed it. It bothered me because my kids say I have word vomit. I'll say something I may have forgotten I wasn't suppose to say.

    Thx everyone. Love gail

    I think some of the people we used to hang out with went to another chat site and then moved on to another place after that. I don't know the exact names, but some of them have passed away.
