News: New look and other changes



blog-hive.jpgBee Hive




If you aren't one that goes directly to the forum normally, you may have noticed the "main page" here going through various states of transformation recently.  It is still very much a work in progress and will probably continue to change for a little while yet, when my husband suggested the main page looked like "something from the 90's," I decided that change was absolutely in order.

So starting today, we are allowing registration on the blog and  comments will be allowed here for  the first 5 days.  After that discussion will be able to continue on the forum.   You do not have to be a member of the forum to comment here, but you do have to register on the blog to comment.   If things go as planned, you will be able to sign in with your various social media accounts so you don't have to have yet another log in, but that is not going live today, most likely.

If you are a member of the forum, you need to register on the blog to comment here and you do need to register with your forum name and email address.  If you would like me to register you manually, I am happy to do that.  Send me a PM on the forum or post on the thread covering this topic and I will get you set up.

There are probably some glitches as this gets off the ground and I routinely break things, as I always do, but I am excited about some of the things that we will be able to do here that we can't do on the forum very easily (like have a real FAQ! which is still a work in progress).   You will notice that we still have a like button here.   We can actually have a dislike button here as well, but I'm not sure how that will go over so I'm going to wait until there is not so much flux before bringing that option to the table.

If you run into anything wonky, please let me know either here or on the forum.    I know the Our Team page needs work.  I switched templates and the lovely addon that made a beautiful "our team" page was part of that template, so I need to get in there and fix that page, but other than that I think the pages are working correctly.

I have a real content post planned for later today or tomorrow depending on how many fires I create yet today ;)

      I read 'joyous lessons' as 'joylessness' first.

      I’m always fascinated when someone who was raised not religious & becomes extremely religious. I know 2 people who were raised not very religious Jewish & became very religious.

      I was raised atheist and became very religious in my teens. I was a deep thinking philosophical kid with big emotions, cracking under the pressure of adolescence in an extremely academic environment; Christianity offered me something to help answer the 'why' of it all (although even then, I always believed in the scientific account of the 'how'). I am also - although I didn't understand or have the label for it then - asexual, and the whole notion of no-sex-before-marriage was oddly reassuring to me, like a 'safe' way to date and fall in love with church boys who weren't supposed to want to touch me sexually (spoiler alert: they still did). While I was at university I worked for a Christian organisation and led the youth group at my church, then I got married and moved to a country town where I knew nobody, and the church community was my first 'in' into the community. I was a stay-at-home mother who spent my days going to church playgroup or hosting bible study with other stay-at-home mothers. Regardless of what's happening inside or what your private prayer life is like, when your social group is all religious it helps keep you religious. It's only in the past few years, with my kids all at school, my divorce finalised, working in secular arts organisations, plus time on more forums like this, that I've become a much more liberal Christian who doesn't let it dictate my entire life.

      Looks like that's the Justice Dept response to the Duggar appeal not the Supreme Court final.  Reddit was a bit ahead of themselves.

      Yeah, the conclusion states that writ SHOULD BE denied. This is the Fed's response to The Felons plea. Remember, they were granted an extension until 5/24, so this makes sense.

      And yet Amy gives no fucks. 

      I think that’s pretty standard for the vast majority of people who make 7 figures. Most people don’t make that kind of money without stepping on some necks to get there.
