      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Old School

Ever since I can remember I have been drawn to bulletin boards. I can't explain the attraction but it is one that has stayed with me to this day. I was the child in grade school who couldn't wait to see what the teacher was going to do with her board displays and now as an adult I stop at every one I see. If I ever go missing, check the nearest bulletin board and there I will be perusing the ads. The thing is I'm not fussy about the displays, they can be neat or messy, full or sparse as long as they are current. From lost pets to yoga classes, church fairs to used furniture these sources of pertinent information have served me well. I have attended many events from information gleaned from these boards. Open Houses, Musical Productions and Craft Shows have all caught my attention. Over the years I have learned to carry a notebook in my bag in case I need to write down a phone number or details of an item. While most of my friends prefer electronic "yard sales" auctions or Craig's List I remain "Old School" there is something about the personal touch that I love. It's kind of like window shopping without the window.

not quite a bulletin board but marquees; I happened across one Friday for a woodcarving show the next morning; went in with dh who was going to be doing ham radio testing to go to it; found out they'll be having a free course starting first of the year; may just try my hand at it!

Sounds like fun! You just never know what you'll find. I say try it, you have nothing to lose and you might just find a new passion. Good Luck! Have a great day!

I'm old school too, Roxie!!! Am I the only one, advancing in age, who gets frustrated, and yes, a bit ticked off, when things change? Last night, after computer updates, I noticed my internet toolbar had been changed; I said to myself, "Oh no you don't"! Then, I chose a new one!! The other day, when I went to the pharmacy, I didn't check my med. After I got home, I saw it was changed to a different brand, with a sticker, assuring me it was the same. But, I'm on the defensive when it comes to meds, because a different brand could give me side effects. I DON'T LIKE CHANGE, LOL!!!
