    Thanks to every one of them, and, sorry to see, there are a few names in this list that no longer contribute regularly. Hope they are all doing well.

    Typing, being on the board on a regular basis, being able to think with your head and not your heart (at times). It isn't a bad thing until times like the present. If you have a good group and they are all involved, smooth as glass.

    That's the whole list by the way. It isn't hard Allen, you could do it.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Gotcha Frank! Polls only go back to 2007, so dunno who was on the first mod squad myself.

    Thanks!

    Allen if you can do almost anything on the WWW you can handle the computer part. It is easier than sending an e-mail.

    I am extremely glad that I volunteered. I put it off for several years because life is so full. I wish I had not put it off. As a moderator you get to know people much better than you do as a member.

    It does take some time each day that you can give the time. By that I mean if you are ill or off on vacation nobody is going to think a thing about it. It is also OK if you just plain don't want to do it today; but hopefully that is rare.

    It moves along smoothly and you have good interaction with the other mods. This "religion" thing is a different, and thank gosh rare, thing. I have spent a couple hours or more on that subject each day. I did not have to spend that time. However, I thought it was important enough to spend the time.

    I strongly recommend it and I am not the type that spends time in front of a computer for fun. I am never bored and I am not looking for other things to do. I don't belong to You-tube, etc. I have plenty to occupy my mind and my time. I am still very glad that I did it. Again, I strongly recommend it.

    If you have any specific questions don't hesitate to ask here or PM Jim C Bradley.

    Enjoy,
    Jim
