      Wow that is a change. But what about the Teach Us books!? Are they no longer on the carts?

    4. Gregexplore

      Gregexplore

      The dust is still settling down, and to be honest I am not sure if the Teach book will be featured. But Even if it is, it’s going to be set up light, and just Teach book on the Cart (15 copies) 

      We were told that a lot of literature is being overstocked on the Cart and being exposed to weather gets wasted. All is being very surgically streamlined. Very Spartan approach introduced. 

      We no longer feature variety of literature on one particular Cart. 

      The Cart will contain only one type of literature with limited copies.

      (Nehemiah 8:12) So all the people went away to eat and to drink and to send out portions of food and to carry on a great rejoicing, for they understood the words that had been made known to them.

      I have more rejoicing over a pav than a donut.

  10. Bug? I get notifications to the posts from 2017 ..all relating to status updates ...got around 10 of them ...something is wrong..as I write I got another one.

    1. Good-O

      Good-O

      Me too - and those sent to me go back to 2016 at least.  ????

      I just looked at the Approval Queue, and realized it hasn't been touched in several years, lol. So, I just approved about a hundred old status updates, replies, file comments, and gallery comments. Unfortunately, there is no way to get a notification of such things, so we have to manually look in the queue, the link for which is kinda tucked out of sight.

      if I dislike the dislike button and I get dislikes from others about this post about the dislike button, does that mean they dislike  the dislike button too?

       

      or better yet

       

      How many dislikes can a disliker dislike if a disliker dislikes dislikes

      She's gonna love it ...although the pain of doing it is incredible

      I use Momento books which is used by wedding photographers..quality product.

      Yes, final result will be fantastic.

      You all will enjoy this so much!  I did this many years ago while recuperating after back surgery.  I made several albums of JW pictures, about 30 years worth, and the congregation enjoys it to this day.  Your mom will be so happy.   Also made DVDs....so nice to go back to see these grown b/s when they were babies.  The KH spring cleanings and the get-to-gathers are such favorites.....some go back to the 70s.  Only sad when we see those we have  lost in death or just wandered away.  Hope to see them all one day.  Enjoy!   

  13. Your avatar cracks me up ...:lol1:

  14. My first day on a new location on Metropolitan Witnessing and the study was started ..love it! As a surprise we have been re-united with our old friend .. What a wonderful day! did not want to leave the City today.:)

  15. I am getting lots of emails from the forum from followed content (notifications) and in my option I have ticked as not to receive emails ..what I am doing wrong? :confused:

      I checked your settings. Try to check out your followed content.  Perhaps uncheck the options to receive notifications.  It looks like you still have some options checked positive that you want notifications.  

      Carlos is better at this than I am.  He might have a solution 

    4. Gregexplore

      Gregexplore

      All seems working fine now ..I only get email notification for personal messenger which I don't mind. 

      Thanks Shawn :D

  16. Metropolitan Witnessing in Melbourne is being streamlined ..I am re-assigned to a new location.

      What is it with cart workers and coffee? In a county nearby, a young brother left the cart to get a coffee, the council grabbed the unattended cart, and now the brothers in that area can't use carts. Coffee is bad, bad.

    4. Gregexplore

      Gregexplore

      Unattended Cart? Tasmania right? LOL :lol1: no! we don't subscribe to it here.

      There is always 4 publishers with 2 carts on Metro Melbourne ..no problem sending someone to grab coffee or a donut! :)

  17. I don't understand what it means to follow someone? I did some experimenting and un-followed some then followed them again to see what changes if I get some notifications ...result: NOTHING ..Am I doing something wrong?

      No you are confusing donuts with doughnuts ... doughnuts are delicious with less fat and more variety over the very plain sickly sweet donut. 

    3. Gregexplore

      Gregexplore

      No you are confusing donuts with doughtnuts ...

      No! Donuts are easier to spell and encourage us to  DO-nut-things

      In contrast, Doug-hates -nuts is a very personal matter ...LOL :lol2:

      I DO SO LIKE NUTS!!

      Miss Bea NEVER forget that without mature, caring members like yourself and others, there wouldn't be a site like this either. The love is mutual.

      Thank you ALL.

      I really enjoyed delivering the talk and felt relax (holy spirit)

      The thorough preparation and practice paid off with dividends :backflip:

  23. Preparing PT 130, and experiencing "writers block" ..time for a coffee LOL :drink:

      I think people have got a lot of anxiety that the condition of the world has gone beyond the tipping point. That perpetuated selfishness and short sightedness will only make things worse. Man is mans worst enemy....

    2. Gregexplore

      Gregexplore

      3 coffees ...and I am almost 3/4 through the talk

      Need 4th one to finish it :drink:

      I thought I had but can't find it among my GVN list, must have been when it first came out. I just reread the outline. My kind of talk, no water canopy. :ecstatic:
