Wow, I wish our companies would do that for us. I just might have to move to your area of the world, Jules!

You know the more I hear from other people the more I am grateful I live here in Australia. If you live in an area that you are unable to get broadband, the government pays for the satellite dish and installation for you, once you apply and get approved (not hard) all you have to do is pay for the router and any other equipment you may need and then pay for your monthly download amount.

Peace and long life - Jules

Thanks, Jules. Maybe some day we'll be dragged, kicking & screaming, into the 21st century. If I had the money, I'd go satellite but right now it is just too far away from my budget.

Linda I sympathise, I've only recently gone from dial up to ADSL. I used to cringe when someone would send me an email over 1MB it would take ages for the emails to get to me. Youtube is a major pain as well as much as you'd like to hear a song it can take up to and over 1/2 hour to get to it. I promise to make sure what I post is a direct link or at least easy to download.

Thanks guys, some great ideas. I've had a few that I thought of a earlier this year but haven't put on yet.

I've been busy the past few days so I'll try to get something on this week.

Thanks again and keep on Sparkin'!

OK by me! I don't spend much time looking around for different sites because I'm on dial-up and it takes me so long to get the pages to load. I appreciate it when someone puts up a link that I can go straight to.

We already have a chat thread Mary Anne, or at least I think that's what the "sit around the coffee table" one is.

I don't know about Em, but I will go and hunt up different sites, things to do etc for all different subjects if it's OK with the other members.

On my second favorite team (of course this is my most fav!!!) they have what is called the Daily Chat. Instead of starting new threads we all go to this one to talk, share and learn.

We could also have a huddle thread, "Did you do the Team Huddle today"?
How many sparkpoints did you get today?

I also agree with the other suggestions.

Have a fun day with your Ma, Em!!!

Since we're all animal people, how about:

What kind of pets do you have?
How many pets do you have?
Unusual pets?
What do you feed your dogs? Cat?
How many times a day do you feed your dogs? Cats? Equines? Others?
Oldest pets? Youngest pets?
Childhood pets?
Ones that you'll never forget?

Ok, that's all that my brain is giving me so far. I like the games ideas if they're not too hard and they're something different than other teams have. Maybe alphabet animals????

Hey Em, it's hard to find stuff for posting, I know.

Maybe a couple of game threads??? I don't know on my other team we have a "conversation using song lyrics" it's fun, maybe something like this? A thread using an emoticon to say how you feel for the day?

I hope everyone gives you some ideas.

Peace and long life - Jules

Hi everyone, going to visit ma today. She's having the siding done on her house because of damage done during a hail storm last month. So I hope to be able to give her a break away from that pounding noise and take her either shopping or to lunch.

I need some help from you all. What would you like to see more of of the team page? I noticed some things aren't getting good replies, some do. So what do you consider interesting? Just post or Spark Mail me and let me know. Always love to hear new ideas.

Hope you all have a great day!

Em & Taz
