I'm afraid I need a rest.


I'm afraid I need a rest.

I'm very tired and not well. I have to slow down. I am supposed to stay in bed or lie down on the couch for several weeks. That's not easy for me but it was ordered by my cardiologist and my family insists I follow his advice. I will not be around the board until sometime in the new year.

We have lost a lot of people lately and I received a PM from a member yesterday who announced they were leaving as well. We have gone from around 150 posts and replies a day to 25. Not good. I have no idea if the board will survive but if it does we can all talk about it when I get back. Have a great Christmas and a happy new year everyone.

Carole

Re: I'm afraid I need a rest.


You have my best wishes for a good recovery.

On the subject of folk leaving, is it because people occasionally belittle them for their beliefs? Part of being in a discussion board is to discuss differences.

Sometimes it is hard not being rude. I do my best to temper my tantrums.

Re: I'm afraid I need a rest.


Let me add my sincere wishes. I can only hope the best for you. And hoping you have as positive a holiday season as possible.

As far as the decline in membership is concerned, i dont believe i will ever understand what makes these boards work — or not work at times. Although Yobbo pretty much nailed it i believe. What always set this board apart from the others was the jigh degree of civility. And for whatever reason there seems to have been a decline in that tolerance of others’ beliefs lately. And that may have led to the decline. I dont know.

But in any event, the best to you and yours during this coming holiday season.

Hawk

 Take it easy Rose/Carole and please take care of yourself.


Last night we got a family of five that was misplaced with the fires in California.

i have two parents, one grandmother and two small children one who can barely walk.

with the added responsibilities and my business growing, i'm not sure i will find the time to post very much. I really like everyone here, and enjoy your unique posting style and personality.

Wishing you all a great holiday, and i hope to see your posts on this board, or another board in the future.
