As my yard produced progressively more, I realise that I posted progressively less.  I guess I didn't want to look like I was bragging. However, like Dianne, I've come to the realisation that the…Continue

Okay... I am going to need to migrate us to a new version of NING pretty soon.  I've been avoiding it.  I know it's going to cause all manner of grief.  I'll spend weeks/months trying to find admin features that I need.  Potentially, we will have stuff go hell, west and crooked.  If things start going wrong, you know what happened.

The header picture won't update.  Issue has been reported and is apparently a bug.  Ning engineering is onto it but we we be ugly for a little while.
