Hi Karon

Glad my childhood memory brought a chuckle to you. No, my brother did not become a vet. His chosen career was in electrical engineering. He was the first college grad in our family and we are all so proud of him. He is a grandpa now and still retains that loving sense of caring for the family, people, and pets.

As for accessing other forums, at the top of the first blue box here, you will see in blue "Encounter Board > Main Category > Welcome", just click Encounter Board link to bring you back to the topic board and on the left side (like you did to get into the Welcome board), click on any subtopic that interests you. Feel free to submit a reply, or post a new subject.

I highly suggest when you have the time, to peruse the Broadcast Shows that are archived. Shirley and Brit have done many interviews with a wide range of guests and topics. These are done usually every other Sunday at 6 pm pacific time.

Also, usually on Sunday evenings, several members get together in the Chat Room, and you are most welcome to join us there. At the top of your screen you will see a Blue link called Live Chat. Just click and it will lead you there. Or on any evening, or even during the day, if you feel like chatting, you can post a Subject (eg, Chat Now 1/28 Noon). You never know, there is usually someone reading the Boards and they may feel like chatting too.

Hope this helps to answer your question.

Thanks so much for helping me out with the navigation advice. Felt so perplexing - yet is so simple (a lot like life in general) LoL. I am so amazed at how many forums there are and I am going to be very busy investigating them all.
Your brother sounds like a wonderful fellow. I shared your story about him bringing home ChaCha, with a friend and she just laughed and laughed. Your story will be passed around Fremantle, Western Australia (where we live) in no time.

I heard that the U.S. is extremely cold at the moment. Down this way it is the exact opposite. If you are in one of those cold zones, I hope that you stay warm and comfortable.
Love and Peace :)

Hello and welcome Karon
Good to see you here and let us know if we can help with anything. We have a wonderfully helpful community here.

Yes, it is chilly where I am in the Southwest, but no where near the icy snow conditions that much of this country is experiencing right now. My heart goes out to those who are enduring all this. I just keep sending out warming energies to surround them. I am so thankful for my blessings in this.

So Karon, you are from Australia? We have other members from there also. Maybe one day you will hook up with them on these Boards or in chat.

Just curious, you being from Australia, are you familiar with the Women's Visions United, a non-profit organization that for several years has been involved in sewing a Message Quilt capturing the visions, dreams, and community of all peoples in bringing balance to Mother Earth? Better yet, have you seen the Quilt where you live? I think they are in Eltham VIC. Here's the link to their website if you are interested:


I contributed a Quilt Square to it a few years ago. Along the left side of the web page is a menu. Click Message Quilt. Go to page 4. Mine is the last square in Row 3. If you click on the picture, my description of the meaning comes up.

Well, have a good day

Hi Peg
So sorry that it has taken so long for my reply. I have recently returned to school and life has been rather crazy. Thank you for sharing the message quilt site with me. What a wonderful, inspirational site (I love your contribution).

Love and best wishes

Hello Di

Hi Karon
My heart goes out to you on the loss of your fur people. They are such precious parts of our lives.

Glad you are enjoying the website and hope to see you on the boards for some time.

hi Brit,

Thanks for your message. Joining this site has really helped me to get through such a difficult time. Sometimes I think that I am moving on and going ok, but then something will remind me how much I miss them. i was in art class the other day and we had to quickly sketch various emotions e.g joy, anger and so on. When I came to the topic of loss I burst into tears and ran from the room. The power of art !!!!! LoL

Thanks again
All my best :)
