Hello Miami Jackson gang! We’re trying out this new format to communicate with one another. Time is slipping by at an incredible speed. This is a way we can stretch it out a bit by staying in touch and sharing our memories (for better or for worse); sharing our “stories” of how we got to this point in our lives, our laughter, our tears; sharing our pets and grand kids alike, our grunts and groans, successes and failures–we all have them. Let me urge you to be *supportive*, civil, honest, sensitive. The ground rules: no biting, no spitting, no scratching, eye-gouging, or broken bones — all else would be fine :-)
Know that this format is experimental for us. It may fall flat, but let’s see how it works. If it doesn’t work, we can go back to the on-going email that we forward to each other.
The newest (last) comments will be at the TOP of the stack; the oldest (earlier) comments at the bottom. Make sure to go through the layers to catch up on previous conversation. The link is: http://miamijaxblog.wordpress.com/miami-jax-blog . Put it into your bookmarks.
Comments are entered by clicking on the “Reply” button at the end of EACH comment, or at the bottom where is says “Leave a reply” [insert dumb face here] then click on “Post Comment.” Your FIRST time -> You need to leave your email at the end of your comment to legitimize your existance! Also, check off at the bottom to be notified of messages added to the Blog (so you won’t miss out!) .
The BLOG is an open forum. However, you can only enter with that precise address above, so there is a certain amount of privacy. We can invite individuals by sending them this link: http://miamijaxblog.wordpress.com/miami-jax-blog/
If this in not private enough for you, I believe we can change that. Let me know.
Final Comment: when the Blog gets too long, I can cut out the oldest from the bottom. Don’t take it personal if yours is one of them ;) , but I hesitate to cut if off because there are new people coming on board every so often that will miss reading “Your Story”.
Cheers to all. -Ralph Proenza ’63
