    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Hi Phyllis--Glad you've had good weather. We had a couple hot days--Wednesday it got to the mid 80's and New York City got up to 92 degrees! Way too hot for me and way too soon. Luckily today is in the 50's. I've seen daffodils on my walks but no tulips yet although with the hot weather we had they'll soon be popping open.

    I'm not crazy about the new format. I replied earlier this morning and tried to check something and when I got back to this page my reply had disappeared! I guess we'll get used to it eventually.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Phyllis-Lois,

    I did send yours and Lois' address. I sent the email to you guys too so the address is on there too. We have a nice breeze coming thru. Was out in the yard a lot today. My grandson mowed and blowed the dirt and grass away from street. I need to get some grass seed to spread around out there!

    Lois! Now you're complaining about the warm air! I know it's not warm....that's hot!! lol I see the wisteria I planted(from Mom's yard) is getting green buds of growth on it already. I need to get an arbor for it to grow on.

    My daughter is putting a new grill together. It's a nice one with the extra grill on top to keep food warm. It has drawers and a cabinent for storage. Already have the steaks waiting!! Her boyfriend is coming later to join us.

    The grass and dirt in the air is bothering my nose and throat. But, my son has cut half of the bathroom ceiliing out to replace it with dry wall. He cut the part that had the holes left from those critters we had up there last year. So I'll give it a new coat of paint once he's done.

    Have a good weekend, Linda
