Thumbs up Welcome aboard fellow Bead Brigade members!

We have a place of our own now! How very nice to have a home away from home to discuss life, friendship and what cruises we have upcoming.

Yay, it let me in. What a great idea and thanks Ed for setting it all up. I was dreading not being able to converse everyday or so with the Brigade.

Default Thank you

I wanted to thank all of you for your prayers and support. We've received so many cards and emails from the Bead Brigade. Your prayers and support mean so much to Chuck and I.

Please keep the prayers coming, Alan is back in the hospital today. He came to the funeral home on Monday for both viewing and it really was too much for him. It seems like he has a couple bad days then 1 good one. I think I have to go back to work Monday, everyday I've driven to John's house (50 miles each way) searching for a will and bringing stuff Mom wants back home.

Ed, thanks for setting up the new Beader thread, I've added it to my subscribed threads.

Love to everyone!!!!!!!!

Default The Beadie thread

Actually this is the Beadie Forum, seriously, we can create as many threads here as we like.

Subscribe to this thread, and any other threads you follow. Then click QUICK LINKS on the right side of the menu bar at the top of the page, you know, it's right next to LOG OUT. Select SUBSCRIBED THREADS (it's one up from the bottom). When the page with all your subscribed threads comes up, THAT'S the one you book mark so you can see all your followed threads and what is new in each one.

I know a lot of you all ready know all this, but if it is news to some, then I've done good.

Default Our old thread has been moved to our new forum

Check out the BEAD BRIGADE FORUM, it now has 2 threads, this one and our old March 19 one.

You might want to save the address of the forum as well as the separate threads. You might have to make it a favorite. I subscribed to it, but it is a forum and thus doesn't show up on "subscribed threads". I'm learning a lot about the workings of Cruise Critic this week!

Has anyone e-mailed Gail? Scot and Tami? Dundalkhon? We have to get the word out.

E-mailed George & all three above this morning.
This is going to be so much fun being able to stay in touch in our own cozy forum and not have to search each other out on others.

Ed, thanks for all the advice about CC because I have learned more this week, too. It's always good to learnd new things, so any tidbits anyone wants to share, please feel free.

Okay, that's enough you guys! I just know you guys are doing all of this "conversing" just to make me jealous 'cause I had to cancel and pay for a wedding. Well, it won't work....I wanted to be part of the Beadies, and here I am!

I have been reading along and it sounds as though this group had a lovely time on the cruise...so sorry I had to miss it. I will be on the Enchantment on Nov 1, and again on April 9 of 2013. I am hoping that I will catch up with some of you on one of those cruises. In the meantime, know that I might butt in every once-in-awhile with an opinion or comment.

Looks like you'll be disembarking as we'll be getting on. We'll be on Enchantment Nov. 10 for the Bahamas cruise! Good hearing from you again!

Default Thanks for the help

I must admit I was one of those CC lurkers (readers--not posters) for several cruises. It is my go to site for information. One of the reasons is that I did not spend enough time figuring out how all of the features of CC work. Thanks for the "technical support."

Just because you didn't cruise this March doesn't disqualify you from being a Beadie.

We all hope at some point to again cruise together and in the meantime, we can all stay in touch here.

Good to hear from you again CeeAngel!

Are you sure you're on Enchantment on 4/9/13? We're booked on the April 1, 2013 Enchantment and it's a 12 day cruise. We'll be back on 4/13 so maybe you're boarding then? Or maybe you're on the 4/1 cruise with us. If so we have a roll call going for that one-come join us!

Question Whatever happened to...

Maybe we can track down Henry. There are lots of other Brigade members out there that we need to catch up with.

I'm gonna email Dinghy Capt now.

Ah, you're right, it is April 1! I did see the roll call, and I'll get there sooner or later. Looks like that cruise is shaping up to have a great bunch of cruisers. I've never been on a ship with the bikes, and am looking forward to seeing the bikers board and disembark. I saw a couple of names from the bead brigade on the roll call.
