Update Your Profiles

Here's a suggestion: take a second to make sure you've entered a date of birth and a location in your profile. This will help others interpret your post. For example:

"I went hang-gliding naked last January."

is quite different if the poster 49 and lives in Hawaii versus 82 in Minnesota.

You can change it by selecting the "profile" button, the "Forum Profile Information" in the "Modify Profile" box.

To foil identity thieves or other Internet bad guys, you might put only a general location, and a birth date that is not exactly right.

I'm not wearing any pants!

Does the location or bday help?

Dont mind me. I've had a screaming baby for 2 hours...

Both my lambs are in their 30's now but those whails have a way of jangling the spinal cord. If the screaming lasted more than a few minutes and we determined that nothing was really wrong, in the crib you go with the door shut. I think I was almost always wearing pants.

Re: Update Your Profiles

I have the good fortune of having an extremely peaceful child. If she is crying, there IS SOMETHING WRONG.

23.75 hours a day, there's nothing wrong.

He's mostly great. But he knows when his momma is not in the house. And the prince of wails awakens...
