okay, this was suggested by Giulia yesterday. Let's see if it flies! c2q let's get this going, shall we? Good morning!
Good Morning EXers!
Welcome new members! We're glad you're here!
oh yeah, maybe it will work! Good morning EX, Thomas, and all new quitters! ~Terrie~
Good Morning.....My thoughts this morning are stay true to yourself, there will always be haters, don't let them derail your beautiful heart as they show their true colors....
The world needs people with good hearts.....I thank God for waking me up this morning, and for blessing me with my loved ones....Have a Great day!!
EXACTLY! Whomever gets on site first thing, just put up a meeting place. I would term it, rather like this: Meeting Place 1/30/17 (or whatever the current date is). I think it will be easier to search for it using the magnifying glass search icon that way rather than putting the date first. I just search for 1/30/17 and too many choices come up that are not related to "meeting place." MOO (My opinion only)
Young is in the house. Bummed she STILL needs crutches - but happy to be sitting in a spot of sunshine!
Giulia I made the same suggestion on the blog Marilyn started, for instance we have 2 meeting places today, one started by Marilyn (with a different title), the second would be this one...and I just responded on the one you started yesterday, with no date in the title. We do need the date in the title, and consistency too.
Will we call it:
The meeting place MMDDYYYY ?
Daniela-3-11-2016 Yes, I think it's gotta be consistent. I would suggest the meeting place mm/dd/yy i.e. today's would be The Meeting Place 1/30/17
Good morning one and all, how is everyone's day so far? Are we happy to be Here? Was that a ginormous YES that I just heard clear over here in Eastern NB Canada? Are you finally getting the hang of this new format? I think that I finally am there's still lots to learn but I'm getting it and that's super fantastic!
Oh my gosh - look at everybody!! I missed you guys!
Life really is grand without a cigarette in hand and really does get easier and easier even when we're trying to figure out something new like maneuvering this new platform but with tenacity and perseverance we can do just about anything!
Hello, Everyone, it's so good to see so many found us this morning, it was a great place to start. Thanks, Giulia. So it's agreed tomorrow it will be 01/31/2017 The Meeting Place.Sounds great to me. I am glad so many of us found it today! It's nice to be together again! Thanks for showing up! ~Terrie~

Well lets all go and visit Christine and see what we can take from her closet! Very nice to see CP here too! Very good idea Ms. G had for this gathering place! Hope everyone has a good evening!
You guys are geniuses! I feel so much better to know that there is a meeting place. Yipee!
Hi there Trudy!
Good evening, everyone. Since I've been gone from here, I have taken up knitting. This hobby is so very awesome, because it keeps your mind occupied, keeps your hands busy, and you get to create beautiful things. Let me show off my latest creation, hot off the needles tonight. I present to you my second ever pair of socks. I made these for my husband, who was kind enough to model them for me.
Check it out...
I might add that I dyed the yarn used to make these socks also.
Knitting: Perfect hobby to get into if you are wanting to stay busy while you protect your quit!
Oh Wow, I am a sorta new knitter. I love it!!! I have made washcloths first and then hats and now baby blanket with basket weave:)
Love the basket weave. I want to learn the seed stitch next.
Wow!!! Skilled lady you are. The ribbing at the top. And you DYED the yarn yourself??? Wow. I'm skilled with chain saws, but my idea of hell is having ANYTHING to do with any form of needle and thread concept! lol More power to you. They look beautiful. Have embroidered ONCE, a shirt of my husband, I know how long needlework takes. Just shoot me!
Chain saws scare me. hahahaha
VERY impressed with those socks.......I've tried, but I don't find knitting easy.....I'm going to try again, might be tapping on your shoulder with questions : )
Start with a Number 7 or 8 needles, and make a pot holder. If there is anything I can help you out with, just let me know.
Hi ! when I first quit I knit my way through the first few months and it really was helpful to me too ! You just learned and already knit those great socks ! You are very talented and will be knitting bigger things soon I have knit for years I mean a very long time and I never got the hang of following patterns very well.
You are an awesome knitter and quitter !!!
Why thank you for those kind words. I like that the knitter and quitter.
I just look around the entire site and jump in where I can. Still learning how to get around. Also working on a new computer. Double Whammy,,,lol
love you all,
Checking in...still at work. I am beat. I HATE SALT!!!that's my rant. I get to leave in half hour. It looks like everyone is checking in here.
G!!!! Now this was TRULY a
Hi everyone Hope everyone had a good day, still dealing with mood swings and some3 depression, but I take one day at a time still going to the gym, can't find any belly dancing classes around me but one of the local high schools is offering an adult Zumba class, for the spring I think I'll sign up! That should get me moving!
Good Evening All
Will be getting more rain Wednesday. So I talked my hubby into going to the beach today
and it was gorgeous!! Really warm. The kids were building forts out of the drift wood.
Have a good night
Jealous! I love the beach!
I love the beach pics. Mags I haven't seen a beach yet, EX 5 here I come!
The beach is the best.....they did a great job building the fort!!
Your pictures are wonderful, I wish I were there, having nothing to do but watching the ocean, inhaling the salty air, and hear the waves dying on the shore.
One can only dream, right?
Thank you for sharing!
Morning one and all.......
The Meeting Place 1/31/17
I sent it in a pm too, but I don't know if that worked
I got the emails#Terrie, I hit the link in the email and it brought me to today's date I commented with a reply on Thomas's comment, migraine city this morning ugh!
Can't knit for anything, will try again when eczema isn't so bad , the wool irritates my skin too much,can't work the needles well with cotton gloves on, maybe crocheting would be better?
Hi everyone glad to have found the "meeting place " ! Hope everyone is having a great smoke -free day I was so happy to find the blogs and now I can get to them with no problem !
I am wondering how new ppl coming to this site are feeling about the platform anyone been in touch with very new Ex'ers ? I kind of found this by luck sooooooooo when I look for it tomorrow what is the easiest way to find it again ?
Is this TODAY'S site? It is dated 1/30/17 and I thought this was the 31st. I looked for it earlier but had a bunch of errands to run and did not get back.
I have not been to Virginia Beach since I was pregnant with my first child in 1970! It was winter so it was just a visit, from what I hear, it has really developed greatly since then. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone who is able to come.
This is yesterdays - old news!
Well, PERFECT. I guess I have to look for today's.
I guess I was on yesterdays too this is a bit confusing well back to the blogs I fel more at home there !
