    Iowa, USA!

    Smile It's been many years since I've been here...

    ...and my name and password are still intact!! That doesn't happen with many websites. Thank you!

    Some of you may know me from other message boards; one of which I have nothing to do with anymore. I'm happy to find BrainTalk again, which was the 1st message board I ever belonged to. I have Multiple Sclerosis, was diagnosed in 2000 but I think I had vague symptoms as early as 1991 or 92. I'm still very active but weaken quickly. Being a country gal, I love where I'm living now surrounded by a hunt club. We have frequent visits by deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, groundhogs (my BF saw that, not me), pheasants, and an occasional Bald Eagle fly-by.

    Iowa winters are SO much easier on me than those awful Mississippi summers!

    Sparky welcome back! So glad to see you back here. I've been through those Mississippi summers and I couldn't agree more. Hope you stick around with us.

    Welcome back Sparky :)
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.
