On this site, you have many things that you can post directly into. You can post just anything on your profile. The exceptions are listed below for first what you can do. In the right column there are 3 things that you can post to if you have logged on, Recent Reviews, Recommended Recipes and Prayer Requests. In the left column there is Our Class Message Board. I recommend that you type the message you want to post into a word processor first and then after you have spell checked it, The copy it to the clipboard and paste it into the location you have selected. This is true of the profile also. On the profile, you can answer all the questions listed but remember that these postings will be shown to the public at large. You have to have the administrator or assistant post the Yearbook and Now picture on the Profile. On the Home Page the administrator must do the posting to The Calendar, Family News Summary, Reunion Announcement area and Featured Links. If you have a movie, slide show or an album of pictures that you would like to show, your can post those on your Profile page. If it is worthy of the Home Page, contact the Administrator and the information can be moved from your site to the Home Page. I also have the ability to make links to some profiles from the Home Page. For help or assistance, make selection below.
Just to the right are some links to various Class Sites. Please check out these sites by clicking on the link name. There are sections that you
can post in just below the Featured Links. Please feel free to use them. Do not forget about the Class Message Board and the Family News Summary sections.
You can post entries there also.
Instructions to post Pictures, Slideshows and Videos on your Profile.
Placing pictures or even a slideshow of your pictures is something that you can do on your Profile.
For pictures, you will want to make a photo album and use the services of photobucket.com or the other providers of these types of services.
For Slides, you need to go through slide.com or slideshow.com for the making of a slideshow. They are download sites that will make the slideshow for you. You download the pictures, order them the way you want them to be shown and you can even select background music.
Once this is done, they provide the HTML coding to be placed on the profile. I would open a text editor like Notepad to save the HTML coding there first as you do not want to loose this. It is the access to those pictures. Then post the code to the Profile in the Slideshow section provided.
I use Windows Movie Maker and download what I made to youtube.com where they make the video and store it for you. They, also, give you the HTML code that you insert into your profile page.
If you are planning on taking on this type of project and feel uneasy in doing such, select the green Assistance button in the blue box above and drop me a line.

I really ventured out---I live in Medford--I took a risk---yeah Right.
I Have been a hairdresser since "63 but didn't work a lot when the boys were younger. My husband, Dave died suddenly in "94 at the age of 50. I have been working as a hairdresser full time since then. I enjoy my work and its more like a social hr for me to go to work; which i am thankful for.
I am proud to have two sons that are ordanined pastors---that was a surprise to have that happen, but i am thankful. I have two of the CUTEST gransons one could have. D.J. is 3yrs and Aiden is 1yr old.Now of course if you read this in 5 years that will have all changed--duh----ya think!
I keep forgetting i am in my 60's, except of course each morning and then the revelation is clear. I still keep thinking I am in my forties or younger--strange how that happens. Oh well--- Actually I do feel blessed.
One of my sons is moving to Seattle so i will be making a few jaunts up in that direction and my youngest son is in Florida and i have been there about 5 times or so. I love Florida--thinking about becoming on of the senior citizens there, but i have to learn to golf more.
Well, I'm babbling so i will end this story for now--Hope to see you somday
