Thankyou for the information. I will try to do better !!Casbow you are not an idiot! It's so easy to post to an old thread. Don't worry about it. I'm sure it's being sorted out.
I'm not sure what you mean by posts that are private. It's possible for members to send Private Messages to each other. It's not about having secrets. It's just that's at times you might want to write something that doesn't need to be on the main forum.
If you click on 'my notifications' at the top you'll see the 'PM' area. That is where you can read your Private Messages or send one to somebody.
I know it's all a bit confusing when you're new but we're all here to help.
I have noticed several of your posts Shedrech. You have a talent for saying just the right thing in just the right wayHi Casbow - TP feels to me to be the one place where you just can just relax and not be concerned about any 'mess' of any kind (and there are some very earthy threads about very real sorts of mess - thank goodness, because we are all facing such unexpected situations and need somewhere to go to discuss the reality of them all)
so just post whatever, wherever, whenever - what you write will be read by the most thoughtful and forgiving bunch it has ever been my pleasure to encounter - not that you will always be agreed with, but a variety of opinions and experience adds spice to the mix.
So - you do not need to try to do better
just come along and post with the rest of us fallible humans
I just saw this post and my self indulgent tears this morning have turned into sobs. That is 'our song' because it was the first record my husband bought me just after we met in 1968. I had just posted about having a low moment when I saw Janey's post with Sarah Millican's quote about the light at the end of the tunnel which made me laugh then I read this string.oh Slugsta you've mad me cry - I came to TP so alone not knowing what was to become of my dad - and found such warmth and sense and feistiness here that is truly sustaining me through some dark times - if anything I write helps, I'm so glad - sometimes I'm talking to myself to reassure myself that all is not lost
there is such joy here too - I'm loving the love song thread
Louis Armstrong singing What a Wonderful World is a love song to life itself - a precious, precious gift
