Good Morning All : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

I am so sorry for the sudden shut down last night. I had deleted hundreds of postings and just couldn't imagine what would be here to greet me when I came back on, so I just pass-worded it for the evening. It did take a little longer than I thought this morning to come back up though! I am so sorry for the confusion. I did post a note at the back-up site, so if this ever happens again just check there.

I didn't realize there were so many people checking in here daily. According to someone who knows the "behind the scenes" stuff much better than I do, we have an average of 400 people checking in daily! Many more than I had imagined. I hope you will forgive me if I don't answer all of your e-mails. My Hotmail is jammed with hundreds of e-mails and I just would not get any laundry done today if I answered them all! My kids rebel when there are no clean socks!!!

I do publically thank you all for your kind words, your continuing support, your consideration, and most of all your many prayers. I can feel them and OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!!!! He really is.

Have fun, enjoy! And all of you lurkers, (I know you are out there!!!) please feel free to join in. I would use a fake e-mail though!!!

Re: Emails....Hotmail e-mail addresses (and others like yahoo?) seem to be a good compromise to fake e-mail, as they have automatic virus protection that checks attachments.

I forgot to thank those who offered to help delete! I could not have done it without you!!! I really appreciate the time you have spent.

Also to my kids who spent a good part of their evening taking turns deleting!! You guys are the greatest, I love you with all of my heart!!

Don't be concerned about answering emails regarding the foolishness and the password. You're doing a wonderful job! Now, fold those socks and I have to do the same.

Hi Melissa-I sent you an e-mail, but just ignore it and do your socks. I didn't realize others of us could help you delete-Ill be home tomorrow with a sick kid, if I can help let me know.(he's ok, he just needs some rest)Thanks so much for your wounderful work.
