Forums Coordinator

Post by Juanita1977 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 7:57 am

Hello Everyone,

I just want to thank you all for being such a huge part of my sobriety. The mod staff for the forums is top notch and we have a very caring, helpful team. We are so glad that they take the time out to serve in this capacity. On that note, I will be rotating out of service to the forums and Karl R has stepped up to take on the role of Coordinator! Please take a moment to welcome Karl. We appreciate your willingness to serve us in this role!


In grateful service,
Juanita P.

Thanks Juanita, you've been a great co-ordinator; honestly.

Let's hope Karl doesn't mess it all up eh?

:mrgreen:

Blueberry muffins in honor of Juanita's wonderful leadership! (I didn't get to make a cake.)

And thanks everyone for your support. I'm honored by the opportunity to serve.

cheers,

Hey Karl;
Like the new avatar.
Forum coordinator puts you in a better position to captain this boat to safe harbor doesn't it.
Does this thing have a motor or do we have to row?

It's a pretty safe ship to start with Marc....Least I found it so when I wandered in a couple years ago.

You all are going to have to row a bit but I'll be right there alongside you. And with sobriety as the reward at the end of the journey...what have we all got to lose?

cheers Marc,

Karl

This reminds me of a song on one of the tapes in my car.
Author unknown to me...

Mad is the captain of Alpha Centauri
We must be out of our minds
Although we are shipmates and bound for tomorrow
Everyone here's flying blind

We must believe in Magic
We must believe in the Guiding Hand
If you believe in Magic
you'll have the universe at your command

Mad is the crew bound for Alpha Centauri
Poets and dreamers and clowns
but bold is the Ship bound for Alpha Centauri
and nothing can turn it around

We must believe in Magic
We must believe in the Guiding Hand
When you believe in Magic
you'll have the universe at your command


Thanks so much for your service everyone.

Go with blessings Juanita and welcome' home', Karl

Hope you were able to reach a compromise...you were,weren't you??...on who to evict, delete or tolerate 'one more time'.....and who bakes the cakes!!

Peace and gratitude
Hazel

I do muffins Hazel....

If you want cake in this venue you're going to have to bake it. :-)

I want mine to be chocolate with coconut frosting.

Looks to me like the great mod team handled things in an exemplary fashion while I slept Hazel. Kudos to them.

cheers,
Karl
