Dave, Dashboard shows 2 members waiting. Things are discombobulated but I think it will straighten out. We’ve been here before. Tried copy/paste. Copy ok. Paste, not so much.

Dave, I saw that. I went to delete it, and it was gone.

Something else weird that happened to me. That Status I posted "What's on your mind" I did not post it I don't even know how to do that, and when I was looking around to try and delete it I could not find anything. Weird..

There is a pending member I have been trying to delete for two days. According to her application she was 3 years old when she left the 2d Cav. Couple other red flags too.

Also not showing others who may be signed in.

The other day I couldn’t sign out. I guess that’s better than not being able to sign in.

I agree Dave. Maybe they’re doing maintenance.
Comment by Dave Gettman on Tuesday
Harry, I seem to have lost all administrative control, and can't even post a photo on here. We are showing ZERO admins for Dragoon Base.

Just a light dusting here, Harold, but I had to shovel snow off my patio cover so it wouldn't collapse. Figured I would shovel the driveway while I was warmed up so the wife could get in and out to work.

Seattle airport had 19.5" and I had over a foot easy.

Frank, I just saw it again on TV. His name is Jonathon Farmer.

Should be buried this week. Not in the National Cemetery here in Palm Beach.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
