Hi everybody!

Isn't this new forum great! :) We are all so excited to have this up and running and to have you join us here.

A big congratulations to Shelley for all her hard work in getting this new forum put together for us! I know it took a lot of work!!

I thought that since we are all here and excited about our new forum, we would throw a virutal party to celebrate! I have the confetti and ice cream (sweet cream ice cream mixed with coffee with caramel and hot fudge swirled in along with brownie pieces! What are you all going to bring!

Warm wishes,
Heidi

I'm bringing the peppermint bon bon ice cream! Plus tons of thanks for all our volunteers and beta testers who lent their time and wisdom in helping us design SCLERO FORUMS. It was a labor of love by everyone.

Let's party!

I'll bring the hot chocolate and a variety of teas. I'll even toss in a bag of marshmellows and you can choose to put them in your cocoa or toast over a fire. Whatever your fancy!

Hi Sweet,

Good question! The plan is to gradually transition from the MSN board to the Forums. In the interim, however, as everyone gets used to the Forum, we will have both boards operating.

Warm wishes,
Heidi

I haven't been to a party for a long time....how does some spinach artichoke dip with fresh veggies and pita chips sound? This is my latest food binge along with m&m's with peanuts on the side. Yum, what a delicious buffet we have going! Forget plates, let's just use trays!!!

Well, yeah, Heidi, but I'm about dying from a sugar overdose here. Those brownies Lisa brought were outta this world. Then nobody else was around when Sherion brought in that big chocolate cake, and I couldn't let her feel bad about it, so I had to eat it myself. I'm sure you understand.

But I caught Sarah walking out with ALL the M&M's that Emmie brought - she carried them off in a horse and buggy. Honest.

Gene heard about Andy's rhubarb pie, and that's Gene's favorite in the whole world. I can't imagine why all those pie plates are empty now, not even a crumb in sight.

Spidge melted all the ice cream with that sunshine, and now owes us some real food, and a few apologies.

I'm going to start munching on Emmie's veggies and pita chips now. Does anyone around here actually know how to cook? This party is going on for awhile. I'm thinking we need some main courses and side dishes.

But, in a pinch, we can settle for more ice cream!

I'm still exploring:-)

Hi Sheryl,

Of course you get to come and bring lots of those yummy breads and dips! It wouldn't be a party without you!

P. S. If you scroll up about 8 posts, you will see the one you posted yesterday! It did make it in.

Warm wishes,
Heidi
