Thanks Sharon healthwise t hey have found another autoimmune disorder I have.  :annoyed


I have set up the new forum.   There will  probably be bugs and adjustments as we go.


To keep the forum spam out I will have to manually register everyone but t his process is explained here

Give me a couple of days to get a smaller board sorted out. I'll post the info here when it's ready.


I will also see about setting the board fully as an archive.

I'll be adding it on to the current B&R blog but the Front Page doesn't really seem to fit the new purpose - any name suggestions?

Party will be any time,  all day long,  as people have a chance to drop in.   :drunk


Would there be any interest in a small less robust board that would still enable members to drop by and chat?


Here is are examples of what that might look like.

I may consider making this a read only board. I'll have to see if I can do that and how much maintenance it would require.

Of course donations to the   :cat kitty are always appreciated.. In this case though I mean a sustaining community as in a participating community.


There is, as you know, a certain amount of background work that needs doing on a regular basis such as keeping the board updated, dealing with spam etc.  and it doesn't seem worth keeping doing just to keep the board as placeholder.


I just deleted all the signups in preparation for taking down the board. The ones I checked were all spam so I just figured they all were. So if I deleted anyone you sent over I apologize.

I would be open to keeping the board open if there was a community to sustain it.  :welcome

There won't be a cache per se but I will probably hold on to the database for awhile.


It was such a hard decision because so much info and posts of love & support and the voices of those we have lost will be lost as well. 


I am also removing the Front Page and  Birthpangs.

Bread & Roses began with a few people who felt uncomfortable or that their voices couldn't be heard on other boards. We grew to be a vibrant if sometimes contentious community.


Over the years many changes occurred including the loss of some of our Bread & Roses family members.


Most of our members were and continue to be strong voices in politics and social/community organizations I still see many of those members on various social media.


As social media has grown many boards, including this one have seen posting become a thing of the past.  I have made the difficult decision to close this board. This will take effect on February 13, 2015.


If you would like to leave your Twitter or Facebook handle for others to contact you or copy off any post/s  you can do so during this time.


Thank you to all who have participated over the years.  :grouphug

Happy Robbie Burns Day!

A Red, Red Rose


O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June:
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune!


As fair thou art, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I:
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:


Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun;
I will luve thee still my dear,
When the sands of life shall run.


And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again , my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile.

I have no idea how on earth I can find out whether the surviving cats are safe and happy. I'm really concerned about this (obviously skdadl would have been as well).


 I've been wondering this as well.
