I want to send a big thank you to all the lovely people who tried to help me! It really meant a lot to me that everyone was trying. Now that I'm on, I'll have to think of some clever post but it's good to be back and be able to respond if I want.

Sammy, I typed in gardenweb.com and it came up or maybe the techs FINALLY fixed something. It's a good thing I got on before I risked getting Disneyed from my frustration.

Hey good to have you back what a time you've had. It's still not all right I can't get from Antiques to non antiques gallery without dropping the 2 in browser.

So happy to see you back Carla - missed you!

I have thought this, and have to say it now. What p***es me off, is that Nobody from the Powers that be communicated with us when obviously things have not been right. We were told there would be down-time for improvements, yet things went very wrong and nobody apologised or gave us any explanation or said, "hang in there! we are doing the best we can". So it left us hanging! some of us believing that the problems were with ourselves personally. I just found that very disappointing. Also it has been a frequently reported fact that some people are having to add or take away a "2" in the URL for the Rose Gallery. This has been talked about for some time QUOTE:

"I can't navigate from here to Rose Gallery either. I have to go up and take the 2 off then I can enter, or I use the link I saved.
See that 2, erase it and then you should be able to enter off of the Rose Forum".

Seems like there are still a few things to be ironed out, Some of us, if not all of us, have been unable to get into the gallery, maybe an explanation for that may be nice.

........and also, why cannot anybody explain why Pete got expelled. he was with us, most of us enjoyed his humor, now has been whipped away - how would we know whether that was a fair deal or not.

Just a little frustrated and hope all returns back to normality soon!

...........But at least, we got Carla back. Yeah!!

A thanks from me too for all the people who tried to help. Something finally worked. It was frustrating as communication with GW was non-existent for me, and difficult for Carla. Without help from some of you all, the problem might still be going on.

Welcome back, Carla. How utterly frustrating this must have been for you.

Labrea, you only need to eliminate the 2 once. When you're on the Gallery, save it to your Favorites list and from then on you can use that. Much easier!

Welcome back Carla and Linda!

Did either of you see Pete while you were in Never-Never Land?

And Carla...IMMUNE?...NEVER offer a challenge to Patrick. Your garden will be crawling with his favorite roses and clematis - just like mine.

I'll get you my pretty and your not-so-little lawn too!


Have you heard of BETTY CORNING? It a super healthy lavender-blue clematis blessed with a sweet jasmine like fragrance. Looks lovely with any warm colored rose. Don't believe me? Well then, just take a look at Harry's beautiful Betty with Westernland. TRUST ME my dear, those soft violet nodding bells are so dainty and precious that your neighbors will be positively green with envy. She would also be perfect with pinks and whites, giving your garden a shimmering fairytale like quality. And on warm summer evenings when the sweet fragrances of rose and jasmine waft through your windows...

Good lord, Patrick - watch out on the potency of that enabling, will you? This overdose you posted is just killing me, and I'm only an innocent bystander! ;-)

Carla - you were so, so missed! Welcome back, dear lady!
