AMAZING!!  Hey Grace! The header sounds like I once was lost but now I'm
found.  I was blind but now I see. Actually, I feel a bit blind here on
the list without those colorful cute record labels. It has been noted
that I was to blame when the list shot up in traffic volume when I joind
in 1997, and I guess I was also the one who summoned everyone over to
Facebook.  Email is awkward for me and I rarely check it.  It always
gets screwed up on my phone.  But now that it is back the only traffic
has been about the 48 ban which could be better done on Facebook with
pictures, sound,and links.  

Plus, of facebook we could show everybody pidtures of our Thai Slave
Girls -- although we should go over to a Joe Happy group for that, not
my Fan group!

After six weeks with Facbook's 78 groups and a zillion reports of thrift

store finds (with colourful label pictures - so cute, aren't they) this 
is a relief. Five informative posts in a weeks time on this list is 
better than the pointless flow on Facebook. People don't ask questions 
on Facebook! They only tell us about their acquisitions. And yes, they 
may ask questions: about how much their new acquisitions are worth.
