I have been with CS from the beginning and have seen good people come and go .I also have seen the bad stay ! Has anyone seen little bit at all? Brad doesn't post much , Lesley has left and I am sure I am leaving out many others .

You aren't negative, Patty! Outspoken maybe, negative no. You've never failed to give me good advice.

Sounds as if someone accused you of being "negative".....From 10/99 until 1/2001 when I posted and read CS, I never found you to have a negative comment about anything or anyone...mostly you would jump in to make a few remarks when folks were being "catty" or sarcastic or otherwise beating each other up over something silly usually. The only cure I can recommend when a person has the "forum blues" is to take it off your "favorites" list and let the other folks keep chewing on one another...they DO seem to enjoy it so....God bless.

Thanks guys I feel better . Guess I was starting to wonder about myself .Did the kids drive me over the edge ? Did I not know what I was saying any more ? Did I ever know ? Don't answer any of the above ! I think all is made up now at cs{for the moment} I just miss the "old" forum .Guess everything changes and not always for the better .

-- Patty {NY State} (fodfarms@slic.com), July 30, 2001.

No Patty, I don't find you negative at all. I agree with Lesley's suggestion. It takes some time to get beyond the fact that stuff has changed and that's just the way it is, so smile, dust off your breeches, and carry on.

Nice to see you here, Stacy!

-- Doreen (bisquit@here.com), July 30, 2001.

I quit going to the countryside forum a while back....cancelled my subscription too. I don't miss it a bit. There are other forums that are so much nicer and so much more adult and civilized.

-- Amanda in Mo (mrsgunsmyth@hotmail.com), July 30, 2001.

Hey Patty! You negative? I sure didn't think so! It appears to be all my fault anyhoo. Boy, I just kaint keep outta trouble it seems---AND I HVEN'T EVEN BEEN ON THERE SINCE-----!

I guess it just shows to go that the Word DOES make people uncomfortable --even if the messanger is not present. Thats ok though---my 923 [?] posts will be there until they are censored also-- then Sissy Barth [ I think it was her] can continue on with the Witness. Thanks sissy! ole hoot. Matt.24:44

-- hoot (hoot@pcinetwork.com), July 30, 2001.

Not your fault at all .I miss your posts there.I have no clue what people are thinking !

-- Patty {NY State} (fodfarms@slic.com), July 30, 2001.

Hey Patty! I don't know what I was think'n either! I didn't post that many posts! A senior moment I guess---623--that is if I didn't forget again! LOL. old hoot, the forgetter of some things. Matt.24:44

Hello, Patty, my dear!! No, you are not and never were negative! All you ever did was try to help. Glad to see you here. Nice to see you, Stacy. I'm feeling like "old times" already!

-- Cathy in NY (hrnofplnty@yahoo.com), July 31, 2001.

Nice to see you guys again. It does feel like old times. I've been lurking on CS but not posting much. I miss all the "old folks."

Kady (youngest daughter) and I went to County Fair last Friday for the 4H horse show. She did real well with a Grand Champion in huntseat (English), and placing well in the western events also. It was a long day though, the classes should have been done at 6 pm but the last 2 classes were cancelled at 9pm. We left the fairgrounds at 9:30 and lost all the trailer lights on Rte 81. We went the rest of the way home via the back roads with the 4 way flashers on and never did unload until almost 11:00. It was a very long day.

The next show is weekend after next at the Chenango County Fair in Norwich. I've never been up there so I hope the grounds are nice. Kady qualified for NYS Fair in 2 divisions-huntseat and western, but I don't think we'll be going this year. It's very expensive and she could do 4 other shows for what it would cost to show the huntseat division. It looks like we've got 5 more shows between now and the end of October. We are going to State Fair the end of August as Kady was invited to the Hippology (study of horses) competetion but it's only a day trip.

Rosie (my oldest) turns 18 in a little over a month. I'm in shock, I don't know how this happened! I'm far too young to have an eighteen year old child. She has a job and isn't home a lot anymore--neither is one of my vehicles. She'll be a Senior this year in school. I never realized how expensive a Senior year is: pictures, graduation fees, the list goes on...

Sorry, this got a little "chatty" I just haven't talked to you guys in so long.

Stacy in NY--I've simply got to clean this house today!

-- Stacy Rohan (KincoraFarm@aol.com), July 31, 2001.

I don't think that an honest opinion offered is a negative thought; mindless attacks are negative. In what I can remember your posts being, I don't think you were being negative at all; just an honest opinion. Just like this one. Have a good day all.

-- j.r. guerra (jrguerra@boultinghousesimpson.com), July 31, 2001.

Hi Patty, you were one of the reliables on CS. Didn't you start the photo album and chat room? I've only posted on Cs in the pas sveral months once and that was because I deleted an address by mistake of someone that wanted something. I've been to the archives a couple of times. Don't miss it and I did cancel my subscription.

-- Cindy (S.E.IN) (atilrthehony_1@yahoo.com), July 31, 2001.

yep thats me Miss negative , hehe.The chat room will start up full force I hope again in fall .There hasnt been allot of activity due to all the "stuff" everyone has going on in summer .

-- Patty {NY State} (fodfarms@slic.com), July 31, 2001.

No, I can't remeber a time when you were negative! You always seemed pretty fair to me. Little Bit was here for awhile, I think she might be busy or something and will probably be back. I miss the way the C- side forum used to be. It has now taken on all the fun of a date with a chaperone breathing down your neck and listening to every word you say to see if it's OK to say that or not! ( I had a brother like that once!)

-- Rebekah (daniel@itss.net), July 31, 2001.

I have not gone back to CS since they deleted Hoot and then my question about why they deleted him. Don't intend to ever go back. This forum has taken it's place quite nicely. I just wish we had even more posters. I'm always interested in how and why people homestead. Thanks all!

-- Deena in GA (dsmj55@aol.com), July 31, 2001.

Patty Thanks for the pic. post you started I love it,and thanks for all the other stuff you have posted in the past. Indiana Country Friend Jack Bunyard

-- Jack Bunyard (bunyuard@cnz.com), July 31, 2001.

Yeah, all the negative vibes leaking out of my computer from your posts wilted my lettuce and made my chickens run away! </sarcasm>

-- William in WI (gnarledmaw@lycos.com), July 31, 2001.

Hey William in Wi! HAHAHAHA! Send them chickens this away. I'm kinda chik'n hongry!!!!!! old hoot. Matt.24:44

-- hoot (hoot@pcinetwork.com), July 31, 2001.

Goodness Patty, with all dem peoples saying dem things about ya ---yer head might get kinda fat!!! Then all that negitive on top of all the positive could cause some kind of sideways reaction....that could lead to?..............

-- Jim-mi (hartalteng@voyager.net), July 31, 2001.

Patty, I've seen Lil' Bit (if it's the same one) over on the Backwoods Home forum.

-- Lisa (tepeeclan@nidlink.com), July 31, 2001.

Jim-mi my heads a spinnin!!!!! Help which way do I go .Thanks everyone for the kind words .I'm just glad I ain't going nuts , I am really not a horrible person.I'm glad I started checking in here more often .

-- Patty {NY State} (fodfarms@slic.com), August 01, 2001.

Hi, I just wandered over to see what's up and saw Patty's post!

No Patty, you're not negative at all! I like you as you are straight forward in your opinions and I'm comfortable with that! I am the same way and, though the years, I've had a few people get angry with me. Oh well! Saying what is on my mind, in a gentle way, saves a lot of time and trouble for me. God bless!

-- Ardie from WI (ardie54965@hotmail.com), August 01, 2001.

Patty YOUR not negative. Don't sweat it. SMILE!

-- Kenneth in N.C. (wizardsplace13@hotmail.com), August 05, 2001.

Patty, We don't think you're negative! maybe just a teeny bit crazy! Miss chatting with you, been out of circ too long. Can you tell me how to reach the cs group? Better yet, where does everybody hang out now? Your ol buddy Woodsbilly
