Both have new photo entries you're sure to enjoy so click on STREATOR: OUR HOMETOWN (in the list to the left of this HOME PAGE) to take a trip through of life before and during--us, that is.
HOW I GOT WHERE I AM
It's time for you to write your "story" of where and why you're living where you are. Some have chosen to write a lengthy narrative, which has been wonderful; but I fear it's frightened off others.
Please just share what made you choose your hometown to retire in; or if you're still working, please tell us where and what keeps you going. We'll take stories of any size - we just want to catch up on YOU!
You can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on "What's New!"
You'll find the answers we've received so far - How I Got Where I Am - listed to the left of the HOME PAGE about half way down and just before "Special Series."
Classmates can now share photos on any topic they feel the rest of us would enjoy in picture galleries. And, they can add as many gallaries as they wish. Simply:
Remember, as always on this site, you must be able to find where the pictures are on your computer. In other words, what file they are in; most will be in "My Pictures."
Only you can add photos to galleries you create, and all photos you add will be credited to you inside your gallery!
Well, it's not quite "The Review" we knew in high school, but it can be a wonderful way to share photos of your families, trips, old high school pictures, and other stuff that interests you.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TOO ASK
We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.
The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.
A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.
So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
