    Some of us can, some of us can't and some of us don't care.

    I am in the latter two categories. I now have 25 "notifications" when I log on. I sincerely tried the first time I saw that term to define, acknowledge and appreciate the significance of that term. Alas and alack I don't. This new improved model didn't come with a manual, even in Spanish or French. I am getting too old to wing it and I ain't even going to try.

    My problem with this is that when I check those "notifications" they are people I know, appreciate and have some mental feelings for. Names are not important, but they are people I have interacted with for a year and a half. Some of them daily and some of them only occasionally. I don't know how to answer them and I am using this part of the forum to inform them that I am aware that they have "notified" me, whatever that means. I am NOT going to acknowledge your "notification" any other way than this post. I feel bad about that. I am using this method to make you aware that I know and that I appreciate it.

    Thank you, John

    You are not the only one struggling. They need to provide better instructions when changing the site.

    I personally think Homeland Security is to Blame. Now you have to register your Friends. lol

    Off Topic '''' In England their is one camera for every 14 people according to an article I read. Watching --- Watching ---- Watching. Now they [ the police] want a law to keep people from wearing hats in public. The camera's/some camera's can't see your face with a hat on. LOL

    Is this site coming to this. LOL LOL I will have to take off my hat.

    :smile2::smile2::smile2:


    Beetle, don't worry, some of us are still Old School. You are my Friend, whether anyone else knows it or not.

    I'm a can do, cant do and dont care to do kind of guy. Depends on if I know how , dont know how or dont care how or dont have the time to do. LOL
    Bells and whisles can be an over kill.:wink:
    I still see no purpose for everybody to see each others friendship list .
    when is the ignore list going to be put up.
    Internet is getting nosy, silly , all the same. i wonder how the jone's are doing. LOL.
    Dont get me wrong, I like to know folks enjoys my post and I like them to know the same. I like friends. Sure dont want to post around enemies. :eek:oooh:
    I know who my friends are on here. Guess it wasn't fair cause others didn't know. LOL. Can I add my dog to my list. She is my best friend.
    maybe there should be a password set to only let your friends see your info. are your friends list and message's

    My stuff, puter, brain, time etc. is getting to slow to keep messing with bells and whistles


    Anyway, Even though it isn't necessary to add me , I want to thank those who added me to their friendship list. I do appreciate it.
    Guess I should add 15 K members to my friendship list and get r done.
    Except for the trouble makers who respond to these type of threads. LOL:tounge_out::smile2:

    That one double me over right there. I can see it now! :smile2:

    Thanks, John, for pointing this new feature out. We now can have cliques within forums, all called "social networking"...I hadn't even noticed.

    I'm starting to feel the old familiar feeling from way back...you know, waiting in the huddle to be chosen for the team. I never cared which team cap'n chose me, I just wanted to be chosen. I was always in the "liability string."

    As I've stated in an earlier thread, I just hope the community remains just that, not devolving into little social groups hangin' off in their little corners. We already have enough of that...where there are some that hang out in their respective state or club forums, amassing impressive post counts without you ever knowing they even exist!

    Long live one big, happy BOC community! :009:

    LOL, my dog fines all the Easter eggs before we get a chance to hunt them.

    Put the new PC on hold for rainy days and winter time. Get a good dog. More fun, less headaches. Good egg finder too.
