All of them! Lol...well, I tend to use distress oxide inks and copic markers the most, but I have used many other art mediums as well....I think you'd have a great time at a crafting retreat/event! Be on the lookout for one to (hopefully) be listed soon!πŸ€žπŸ˜ƒ

I'm not sure what to tell you. As far as I can tell, everything is working properly. I even logged into your account, went to the My Contacts page, and clicked the profile button for every one of your contacts, but all of them worked just fine.

Maybe it was just a fluke? What browser are you using? Not that I can imagine that would be a problem. The icons are just simple links. It really shouldn't matter what browser you're using--a link is the same across all browsers.

Very odd. When I click on the icon, the "read mail" of the person below flickers like crazy.

I use Google Chrome.

Maybe I'll delete all my contacts and then reload them. Thanks for your input.

I tried it in Chrome and saw the weird behavior you described. As far as I can tell, it's a browser bug. There's no reason I can find for the flicker and it appears limited to that browser. Seems like someone would have mentioned it sooner if it had been around since the very beginning.

Anyhow, I couldn't really find a way to make the flickering stop except by turning the "Read Mail" button into a link and it seems to work better on my system now. *shrug*

Very weird, though...

Had a wonderful few days in this beautiful city! Due to a bum hip and a couple tropical rains, I didn't get to box nearly as much as I wanted nor did we get to do everything on our to-do list, but I would visit again in a heartbeat!

Only one letterbox this trip, from Bonaventure --crowds, mosquitoes, humidity, hip and noxer all came into play on that. You all weren't joking about bug spray in your clues!! The tour app was worth the $5.

Again, thanks for all the suggestions. Will come back someday!

I carve way, way, way more than I plant. Because people like my carves, what I do is I go to Susquehanna Sojourn every year, which is a festival relatively near me and I post on the bulletin board there that I have free series for people to take. Last year I gave away over a hundred stamps. As long as I don't care about the stamps once they go out into the world then this works really well for me as a way to let people enjoy the stamps, but I don't have to plant them or pay for the boxes for planting.

The Memento and Tsukineko dew drops are my go to for the trail. Joann's sells plastic boxes that are designed to be photo holders that perfectly fit a bunch of them in neatly. I get my pink stuff from my local art store. They actually didn't carry it until a local letterboxer let them know that there was a market for the stuff. If you are trying to avoid Amazon then you can also ask a local place to special order. Otherwise, Amazon works fine.

That would be scouttrekkie for the most part., They do have a few other boxers in that area too, that might be able to help, but she might be able to help the best.

We have spent a lot of time in the area over the past twenty years and might be able to help with some things in that area.

Go ahead and ask if you want and we might be able to help.

Uneksia is one of our original boxing members from New Hampshire.
Her great grandson was recently born with Spina Bifida. On Sat. 10/26 there will be a carnival held with the proceeds going to help the baby's family. If you live in or around Berwick, Maine you could go support the cause and have fun at the same time. There is also a
GoFundMe page set up for donations. Link below is for carnival info and there is a GoFundMe link on that page. Won't you help, please?

A few months ago, I was doing yardwork when a car drove by and the driver yelled "liberals suck!" at me before he sped away. I guess my Hate Has No Home Here yard sign, with American flags on either side of it, made him angry. πŸ˜”

I'm really hoping that we Americans can talk to each other without suspicion and hatred someday.

I hope you're wrong, but I fear that you're right.

Just because two people disagree politically, it doesn't mean either person is "bad." We as a nation really need to talk more and to look at what we have in common. In these divisive times, that's not an easy thing to do, but it sure beats the alternative.

Just my .02.

Yeah, I saw that a couple of days ago as well.

Think I've seen something similar somewhere before...

I don't know.... there's one very significant difference between the two. As far as I can tell, their app doesn't include any photos or videos along the route. To me, that was the main feature of W4F. The maps of where you are located are secondary.

So, Walking 4 Fun currently supports 25 different trails. His app supports one! *shaking head*

But I'm a little envious that he's getting a lot of publicity out of the article while nobody knows about Walking 4 Fun!
