I'll put it up right now.
being in this environment for 20 plus years i think you need to have an "in dedication" page. we have many sick extended brothers and sisters of this community that need prayers and positive support headed their way. the output of positive energy is tremendous within this community - every bit helps. we've all been witness to it in some form. perhaps some others have already asked for this.
i make a motion to start it.
the reason is i have a dear friend of mine for several years now - she's 41, and has been on life-support since last wednesday. nobody knows why. the doctors can't do tests because she keeps going into seizures when they stabilize her body. i ask this community to pray for her. take care - chris
Under Dead Charties section we have a place for Unbroken Chain Foundation!!!!
I've been opening up the charity topics when the charities themselves have requested it (most of them also have links on the Family pages), and I would be more than delighted to start topics for these folks as well, if they wanted it. My concern is opening one up that the actual folks never visit, so I wait for them to ask.
I'd also be happy to pursue it with them if you've got a contact at Seva I should talk to. Or, for that matter, Furthur, Planet Drum, etc. I do know a guy at Unborken Chain and I'm talking to him.

...shall we go, you and I while we can...
So I read all these really critical posts about no forum topics in the new site. It reminded me that there are essentially two kinds of "Deadheads". First, you got your folks who'll wait in line for three days to get a ticket or get into a general admission venue. Then, you got your folks who crash the gates or elbow thier way to the front of the crowd during the show. The difference is PATIENCE and TOLERANCE!
Leave if you want to, but here's a thought...try letting these folks work out some of these issues before you bail...it might be worth your while!
Thanks for starting the book topics and making the subject more visible. How about making the Robert Hunter area a little more visible? For his birthday.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

I'm sorry it's making you want to leave, Zoomabooma. If there is something you want to talk about that you don't see a space for here, please just let someone know and we'll try to accomodate you!
Hal R - have you found the books area? Dead On and Off the Net: Offline. I'll fire up a topic or two over there for you.
Considering we have no way to start new topics and we're limited in what we can post about, it might be time to bid adieu to Dead.net.
Nice try, folks :)
