As we move into our new home,,,,,
We seem to be getting settled quite nicely in our new home, and we are bringing forth all of the positive vibes that we had in our old home. I think that we need to remember the reason that we exist as a board. It is mainly to provide a place where we can come and be comfortable, receive comfort and support when needed,and laughter. However,we need to be mindful of the feelings of others and make sure that we do nothing that can deliberately or inadvertently cause pain or offense to others. I guess what I am asking is that we practice a little "political correctness" here on the board. I know, I know, "political correctness" has gotten a bad rap lately. But, IMHO, it is just another name for good manners and consideration of each others' feelings. So make sure that, before you post a joke,you are not causing hurt to other members of the board. What may seem like innocent fun to one person may not be so much fun to another.
I suggest that we all take time and read, from time to time, the iVillage Terms of Service, and the "Garden Requests" that can be found on the Ladybugs' Homepage. These help us to remember what we are all about here in the Garden.
Susie, BB, KT, and I hope that the warm feeling of community that we had in the "old house" will remain with us here.
Love to all of you,
