Happy Birthday Yvonne - hope you are having a good one. Are you still in Crete?

Sorry we didn't get to see you when we were over a couple of weeks ago, hopefully next time.

Pam & Bob

Belated happy birthday, Yvonne (Wim, for Gods sake, let us have a new thread whenever it's somebody's birthday!). Better late than never. Hope you enjoy life and the smooth wonderful weather we are having these days... that is, if you are still in Kriti! :)

Dinny, you're a moderator so why don't you just start a new thread...

I agree. We seem to be missing a lot of birthdays due to the length of the original thread.
A new thread for every birthday....after all a birthday is a special event to each and everyone of us.
If you look like your passport picture....you probably need the holiday!

Dinny, why are you asking Wim if you can start a new thread? Why not just go and do it... :)

Ishall, I am not asking Wim if I can start a new thread... rarely I would be the one noting that it is somebody's birthday, I am not on that much, I would like NOT to continue the one thread Happy Birthday because I like to see in the title what - and whom - the thread refers to. That´s all! ;-)

Just love the turmoil I've created. B)

It seems that Shell 18 has her birthday to day. Wonder when she opens her scallop and reveals herself B)

B)

BTW, you perspicaciously bunch, if you click on - IN - instead of BY when in the Forum platform you come to the last sent contribution...and when you click last post by when in the General one the same happens. I've learned to look at the bright site of tactility and guess what? Now you people got a review of all members that count within one topic ;)

:P

H'm, well at least it aint dull...

Nobody reads this! :angry:

I'm sorry I missed Dave's birthday by a week - it wouldn't have happened of course had there been a specific post. Sometimes I just have a few moments to check the ExploreCrete, so I don't go digging into every single topic, especially if they are 'generic' like this one.

Thanks for the birthday wished Dinny.
I must admit that of all the friends on the site I did miss your greetings especially. :( (Excuse me..I have to go and get a tissue to wipe a small tear from my eye)... as I get older my circle of those sending birthday greetings is geting smaller and smaller (sob...sob) :( :(
But never mind...I can still look forward to my nexy visit to Crete and to visiting you. :D B)

Lots of love to you and ther dogs and the cats! :angry:

Dinny. :(

You need not dig into whatever topic. Any existing topic that has been reactivated by a new posting is automatically arranged to the first position.

You probably missed this one because you were too busy and than the topic is lowered by the next new topic. I understood the message though, loud and clear signal strength 5, both from Dave and you.

Since you are "a" moderator you can easily erase this whole topic of mine about birthdays etc. and have everybody concerned satisfied. Only thing is that in that case you'll never have a topic about member birthdays that you can review.

I don't mind. The coherence of this forum's topics has vanished a long time ago since everybody starts a new one without checking if theirs would fit an existing one. A forum is meant to inform not only members but first of all visitors, and if they have to dig through a pile of junk to find the answer they look for they start a new one etc etc etc.

A forum is not a chat room, in my humble :angry: opinion.

Oh, but I would like this forum SO MUCH to be a "chat room" as you call it. I like to keep in touch with people I've known through this forum for years, I like to greet new members and reply over and over to the same questions. I don't mind it AT ALL if the topics have been up a few times previously! After all, this is not the parliament... this is just a place for people loving Crete - and actually we never get bored talking about the same wonderful places, the same Cretan topics, the same birthday wishes every year for each and everyone of us.

So, me and Dave voted that we like each person's birthday to be a specific topic - that is, if anybody remember to start it - and you, Wim, voted for continuing this generic topic to say happy birthday. I therefore state (bang! the hammer) that as a democratic resolution from now on every single birthday is entitled to its own thread.

Now, whomever has got the time to check the members' birthdays everyday please feel free to start a new topic if you want to send birthday wishes!

Wow, I feel like back in '68 when we told the dean that his rules were outdated! :angry:
