I went and checked out Americanponders.com for the first time in months. That forum has some traffic there, but it is mostly misc. chatter.

I really like this forum, we need to pass the word that this one exists. I tried googling any key words partaining to forumes, ponds, water gardening, etc, and could this forum at all.

Happy ponding,

Feel free to invite anyone you like to come here and visit us Rich. If you think there is anyone on another forum who would be interested in coming here to a forum where you can voice your opinion and not be ridiculed or harassed for your political or religious preferences send them a pm with our address http://bullfrogs-pad.forumotion.com/forum.htm . We are not trying to take anyone away from another forum, just giving them another choice...........we do still have freedom of choice in this country as far as I know as of today anyway

Sorry I haven't been active. I'm really pouting myself into my writing lately. But I'll retire in September and have a lot more time.

I tend not to spend too much time here because things seem to load slowly here for some reason. I think it's my pc but I don't have problems on other forums. While in Oregon several weeks back I noticed that our son-in-law's pc loaded this forum quickly and thus I think that it has something to do with my pc. Even when I reply to a topic I have to wait for about 30 seconds before my cursor shows up...... Weird huh?

Tis weird Mikey. Do you do the Ctrl F5 button thingy to clear the page? Maybe this is a less powerful web-site or something. Who knows I don't understand all the computer mumbo jumbo that goes on in these metal boxes I don't have your problem tho and I have an old computer from 2002 that my son fixed up for me.

I have not idea what a "Control F5" is supposed to do but I just did it and it makes no difference. This site is the only site that causes delays. The delays are not really that long but I tend to be impatient....

Up until April I was having the same problem with loading, especially here. My geek son Rich Jr. surveyed my computer and advised me to dump it and buy whole new computer. He gave me my old computer and he said it was on it's last leg. It's now a boat anchor.

Happy ponding, ex[lol]

Mikey it just clears the cache on the page you are on so as to free it up of excess junk that builds up now and then which makes things go slow and quirky at times. Maybe if you clear your whole computers cache of all the temporary stuff it might help but you prolly already do that anyway.

It's only this forum where I am having this problem and it has been that way since day 1.

I'm guessing it has something to do with my virus protection. For example, right now I have a warning at the top of this thread stating: "This Web page could be a scam. Proceed with caution." I get this every time.

When I go to the home page here I get a more dire warning stating: "This Web page is probably a scam. Proceed with extreme caution."

I just turned off my virus protection but I got the same warnings and the page loading was as slow as before so it's not my virus protection unless it is something else in my IE browser.

I wonder if it could have something to do w/ the way this web site needs cookies to be authorized? Sorry Mikey I don't have a clue. I wonder if anybody else has this problem? If so I hope they let us know. Anyone?
