I got a little too busy cleaning house and inadvertently deleted stuff I didn't mean to. Hadn't realized the comment on your post was one of them. Red's a caution. I wrote about her on our 35th anniversary in November.
Let me be the first to wish you happy birthday Phyllis! And don't you dare worry about life's contingencies today. Sit back and glide thru it. Think happy thoughts of a happy place and all that happy shit they say you should do! And DO NOT rake nor volunteer anywhere.
Do something life affirming & fun like sit around all day on the computer in yer jammies or something.. xxoo
Hey -- thanks for the note, Phyllis ! Yes, it is a major disappointment.... I hope for news soon, but since the car's been wrecked, it's all over anyway. It was an '84 bmw and the clean body was why this 'old lady' loved it so much -- the teens around here love this old car, lots of them in town. Mine was just too tempting for that 16 year-old idiot...
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your reaching out ~ thanks again,
Thanks Phyllis. I look forward to reading your insightful posts. I am still a member of Open Salon, which I only started this July. I am finding that this site has more good features. Better yet, it is highly functional. Take care. Lyle.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.
There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site).
