I have no idea how to get in touch with any of the mods here.  I can't  understand why they feature comments on the front page, rather than articles.  Perrie or Dowser .. what's up?  Why are ugly comments featured instead of links to articles that I might want to read? 

link   katrix  replied to  katrix   3 years ago

 Or even awesome comments, for that matter .. since that's all personal preference. 

link   Dowser  replied to  katrix   3 years ago

If you go to forums, recent articles, you can see the articles you may wish to read.  I think you're following recent comments instead...  You can reac the mods via the chat option button in the lower right hand corner.  When I'm online, my name is listed-- same for all of us!

Good luck!

Hi Dowser, I was wondering if I can volunteer to be a moderator for NT?

You will have to talk with Perrie, but I feel sure that she will want you to be a member here for awhile before you become a moderator...  Take care, Gordy!

Howdy, Dowser.  I've not been around much.  Losing interest in the vine and internet in general.  Busy on a house addition, actually a studio out back.  Love ya.

link   Dowser  replied to  Nigel Dogberry   3 years ago

I can see why!  I love you, too, dear Grump.  Thinking about your grandson, and just hope the  news is good...  (and afraid to ask).  Take care my dear friend!

He's doing as well as can be expected.  He's on dialysis three times a week, 4 hours at a time.  The studio I'm building is pretty much for him to hang out in, have friends over and such.

Thank heavens he is doing so well!!!  I hope that all goes well for him-- and for you!  That studio sounds wonderful!  You get the Grandpa of the Year award!  Love you, too!

Moon Crow

Hi Dowser! I was going to send you a private message, but I don't see the option, so I'm posting here ... hope that is Ok. I need your expertise.

I'll try to abbreviate why I'm asking this question ... which is further down.

I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who started having seizures last July. We think we may have found out why, and that is another story; however, in our quest, we discovered that my dowsing rods cross over her ... but they do not cross over my male spaniel. Any ideas on why dowsing rods cross over life forms?  Thanks for any info and insight!

link   Dowser  replied to  Moon Crow   4 years ago

Gosh, I don't know!  But it is odd, isn't it?  The one person I could have asked passed away a couple of years ago... I'm sorry I'm not more help!

Moon Crow
link   Moon Crow  replied to  Dowser   4 years ago

That's Ok ! I'm just at a loss and thought you may know. I know I have found water, graves, and suspect spirits, as well as lay-lines and preious metals ... never ran into something alive registering. Thanks for responding Dowser! <3

link   Dowser  replied to  Moon Crow   4 years ago

I'm truly curious about this, too!  I've never heard of anything like this, and I would ask my driller, but he died, sadly.  I still miss him so much, and think of him every day...  I wish I knew who to ask!

Moon Crow
link   Moon Crow  replied to  Dowser   4 years ago

I emailed someone at a Dowsing organization, but I'm not a member, and they have not responded. I'm going to try again today.

I've been posting to  my Blog  for the last week or so... getting almost no reaction.

Now, that could be because no one is interested in what I post (  tough guy   ). But it could also be because posts to Blogs don't show up in the "Newest Comments" and "Newest Discussions" pages. Blog posts appear briefly on the NT Home page, in "Latest Activity", but they quickly fall off and are lost forever.

So... if you have appreciated my posts in the past, please stop by at my Blog, and if you like what you see there you can: 

   1) Stop by from time to time...

   2) Subscribe via RSS. RSS is a really, really REALLY good way to get your news. YOUR news, whatever YOU want to get. I've posted  a tutorial .

Hello Dowser, I came back from the lost to try and find Jerry Volinger.  But I could not find him, so I thought I would view these beautiful flowers you have posted here.  I am crazy about flower photos.

I'm getting your messages, but theres no "Reply" button. I also tried again today to send you a NT IM, but even though I'v checked your name the system is telling me I must select at least one member to send a message.

Apparently it is a glitch, hopefully Perrie can fix it.

Meanwhile it might be easier if you contact me directly via

I received your message re; the Good News Wednesday thing, but I'm having a problem getting back to you. Seems there is no "Reply" button on your IM and I can't get an NT internal email to send either, nor do I see a "Send a Message" link on your homepage.

I have reported the problem to Perrie, she thinks it's some kind of a glitch.

It's possible I may be inadvertently blocked from your homepage. Perhaps you can check and see if the problem can be remedied from your end.

Dowser, You know I would never say or do anything that I thought was harmful to anyone or you. It was a mistake and unintentional, if it happens. I wanted you to know that AD - American Dreams asked me about you. I told her you had a death in your family and are adjusting. Because you and others have put public articles on the Front Page, it made sense to me that it was Ok to say that to someone that is your friend that is asking about you.

Do you agree?

I thought you also would like to know that a friend was asking about you.

Your friend,

A quick note to say Hi! My husband and I have been building a horse shed for a client, and trying to get the garden dug and hopefully planted this week if we don't get another cloudburst over the next 2 days.

We also need to tear out our old bathtub and install another a new bathroom cabinet, install new sink and build bathroom cabinets.

We also must finish roofing over our trailer...and then there's painting and fencing to be done.

I hope all is well with you and yours....Your very tired friend, mocowgirl.Smile.gif

Not with any resentment, but only with a curiosity and a desire to make the Classic Cinema group more popular and worth while keeping on the board, can can you please tell me why you did not post your "7 movie deaths" article on the Classic Cinema group, of which you are a member?
Virtually every movie you listed would be included within the group's definition of classic.
