Shocked with active newsgroup

Hi Everyone,
I've been on vacation for a month and returned to find my favorite newsgroup
full of loads of ideas. I thought I'd clicked on one of my DH groups
accidentally. What a nice surprise to come home to.
I should be washing clothes and cleaning out the RV but this is more fun. I
found ideas for all those H20s I bought a couple years ago but haven't
opened plus a recipe for alcohol ink and lots of other ideas. It's been a
couple years since this NG has seen this much action. Lets try to keep it

Welcome back, Wave Jumper!
Where did you vacation? Did you visit any cool local stamp shops (LSS?) while you were out of town?
Lots of new faces around here, as I'm sure you've seen. Or if not new, then venturing out of lurkdom. Take a moment to introduce yourself, if you feel so inclined.
Also, there were recent posts regarding joining a card SWAP and an RAK list. If you want to participate in either but can't find the posted info, drop me an email and I'll forward it to you.
Nice to have you jump in with us! Barbara

Went to Washington and Oregon to windsurf. DH did the windsurfing. I took along some card making supplies and made 8 cards to give to friends at the RV park. It sure is hard deciding what to tote along when space is limited!
No LSS in that area but I did stop at Joann's one day. I was disappointed in the selection but it's just a small town called The Dalles in OR. Guess I'm spoiled because I live near a large town that had 3 large stamp stores until last year when two of them closed. We also have several large Joann' etc's and Michaels. I may have found something in Hood River OR but we only went there a couple times so my DH could drool over all the windsurfing "stuff" and buy-buy-buy.
Yes, I saw the posts about the card SWAP and RAK list. Hope you get lots of participants. I'm leery about putting that kind of info on the internet. I taught my granddaughter not to give out any personal info and I follow the same rules.

I'm brand new to the group, and I'm so happy to have found you all when the group is having an upswing. I think it helps that Google is now showing Usenet groups in it's Groups search. I feel a lot more comfortable looking at Usenet messages through my Firefox browser (with all it's cool security extensions), than say, using Outlook Express. My anti-virus caught a nasty worm from a Usenet message (not this group), so I stayed away from Usenet for the past 4 months. I'm happy to see it's all picking up!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all, and to all of the great ideas we can all share. :)

Um, it always has. In fact, Google Groups was originally designed to show nothing but Usenet groups, when it took over the database originated by DejaVu

Hi and welcome to the newsgroup - not sure if you are in u.k or U.S or neither. I myself am in the u.k & would like to say a big hello to you and all the other stampers here! M
