@Dave! As per the suggestion of Calif Sue, I am requesting you, Dave to remove"October" from this thread so we can continue on and not change it every month. I have informed the people on the thread so they will not be confused.



Please just make the title read: Happy People - Open Thread

Thank you. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused having a Monthly thread.

Good grief, I can not even type this morning nor can I see....the subject of this post should read PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE TO THIS THREAD. I am having problems with my eyes the past few days due to the new drops and I just can not see what I am doing. Sorry.

You have no idea how miserable this is. I only have one good eye. I am blind in the right eye. I use a larger font most of the time, but here in ATP it usually is too difficult and clumsy to use it because of the way we move around from one thread to another. Therefore, when I have these drops in my eye, sometimes I see a word like title the way it looks, other times it may be wrong and I think it is a blur so unless the computer catches it I do not see it until the eye clears up. Also, dry eye is another problem. I have a million excuses if you want me to go on. Sad I just hate the thought but I am going blind.

Forgot about that perhaps one of the Admin people can do that. I think the Admins are @calif_sue and @zuzu and I know there are more but those are the ones that come to mind.

Perhaps they can adjust the name of the thread for you JB Confused Confused

It was Calif Sue's suggestion to change the title of the thread and at the same time she said Dave should do it. I assumed since she told me to have him do it that she could not. Dave also prefers a long thread instead of Monthly.....I am just trying to do what I was told. Confused

Are you saying to get someone's attention we type @ in front of their names? I must have missed that too. I am not adjusting to well to ATP i can see it now. There is so much to learn. I should have read the rules.

Sue, That's good to know. Sorry I did not mean to confuse things even more Blinking

Yes the @ sign in front of a user name (not real name) sends a system message and hopefully the person sees it and clicks on it to find out
who used their name in a post. Nice new feature.

When I first came to ATP I thought I would never learn all the ins and outs, so don't be discouraged and again, sorry if I lead you down the wrong path.

Just got home from Tomball and had a great time and got a lot of new plants, too. Got pulled over on the way home but did NOT get a ticket! (Thus continuing my winning streak. In my life I've never gotten a speeding ticket.)

Anyway, I changed the thread title for you. Smiling

You were in a hurry to get home and start planting all your new plants, right? Hilarious!

Glad you didn't get a ticket.

Thank you for changing our title. Now we can go on and on and on and on and well you know what I mean.
Anyhow, our Happy People will now be able to enjoy our fun thread.

Thanks Marilyn for explaining the use of the @ to me. I can not guarantee I will remember to use it but I will try. Rolling my eyes.
