Where are all the 408 active Members?

Seems like only a few of us are posting each day!
Where are all the other 408 members that are active on FC. It is not hard to introduce yourself and say a few words. Getting lonely on here, join the few of us trying to keep everything going.
Now that we cannot post photos of anything takes the joy out of saying anything about our day or families!

Why can't you post pictures? I don't anymore because it was just too hard to do especially now since I use my cell phone for photos instead of my camera but did they block uploading photos?

It is extremely hard to post pictures so I quit trying and just post them on FB when I have one to share. It is super easy to post on FB from your phone.

so true that we have become a mobile and instant society! my pix are all on iphone or ipad also, hardly ever use the desktop unless I am at work and work has a policy to only use the personal pass space for work stuff, no more family folders on here for me!

I do wish people would come and converse though, hard to hold a convo on facebook!

ellenmelon, I usually go on chat to see who is on. Some times they call me or I call them if it is something important. Have a lot of relatives that I
chat with. Can even go on messenger and talk on a phone with video or without and send photos.

The top 5 threads from what I see are in no particular order are What did you do frugal today, What's for dinner?, What did you pay for gas?, Prayer Corner, game Change a letter. The gas thread only gets 7-10 posts a month which isn't a lot at all for one of the top 5 treads. Frugal today hasn't have a post in 5 days.

I try to keep the friendship thread open and also the games.

Good Bye Family Corner
I just wanted to post a goodbye to everyone here at Family Corner, this was the first online group I ever joined. I met so many amazing people here, and thank you all! Love you all!

I joined here in March 2002. 16 yrs ago.

Our paths rarely crossed on here I too have been a member since 2002 and 16 year Veteran here. We really had something going here for a long time I can remember membership being over 10,000 at one time and the pages were so busy you couldn't keep up with them. I learned so much here and met some very special people some I even met in person.. JJOJ (Jamie) and LaurieS. Very good times but sadly blog types are now a dying breed with so many other social medias. I am on FB so anyone on here can go there and request to be my Friend and join with others from here as well. I have many friends that have joined my page it isn't a structured page but we share what's going on in each others lifes. A lot has changed with me over the years, went back to work, quit work this year to be there for my husband as he battles cancer for the second time we don't know how long we'll have doctors say 6 months or 6 years we just don't know he's taking hormone therapy right now and if it gets real bad on the numbers they may try other things that right now would do more harm than good (2nd battle with prostrate cancer that came back and not treatable at this time with surgery or radiation. All the years of learning and sharing here on how to be frugal is helping us now as we pinch pennies even harder. Anyways.. I wish each of you the best of life.

When DH was going through his Prostate Cancer, I forget 6-7 yrs ago, his Urologist said 90% of 80 yr old men have Prostate Cancer when they die but they don't die from it.

I wish David was willing to loose the weight needed to be able to have the surgery Anna.

I am making some changes to our home cupboard and the way I fix meals as all 3 of us would be healthier if we lost 15-30 lbs so that is my goal in 2019 for us to be lighter this time next year.

If anyone is interested in joining the FB group "FC Front Porch" email me your FC name and FB name and I can submit it for membership. [email protected]

Me too Roberta.. we've been fighting that battle and 2 weight loss clinics for years. Trying again for healthier foods he is at least trying to eat more veggies now.

Sorry to hear the site is going down soon. I did go to the Gallery today and copied my picture off so won't lose them.

The members here have been really great. Praying all the best for all. And yeah, my DH has decided to retire with job attached. But, so far no calls to go to work since the 30th of Nov. Applied for SS and will start in January. And in the middle of appling for VA Benefits too.

Good Luck all!!

I have a question. How can I save all of the wonderful recipes that the members have shared over the years? There are so many that I feel that I can't copy and paste them all to my computer.


RobertaD 12-28-2018 03:48 AM

My only thought Vicky, would be to copy and paste into a word program then print them to save space on your computer. You should be able to get several to a page, set your printer to "draft" ink setting if it isn't already to use less ink when printing.


AnnaInOhio 12-29-2018 07:07 PM

i too have been going back and trying to save some of the tips and recipes on here.. I copy, paste to my Word and put in a folder on my computer.

If you click on thread tools at the top of the thread you can choose "Show Printable Version". That doesn't have all the extra graphics and it's in black & white.
