I Started a New Spark Team Today !!!

Monday, April 23, 2012

I do belong to many Diabetes Management Teams and 1 Canning, Freezing etc. team.
That team, our leades (all 3) are MIA...2 of them since 2009. I tried like heck to get to be Co Leader.
When the Inactive Leader message came up, I applied...No Word to this day and that was at the end of March.
Emailed 2 of the Leaders shortly there after and Nothing.
The Inactive Leader message disappeared but none of the 3 posted anything on the team message boards...
What to Do, What to Do ????
I started my own team this morning. Many of the active members were totally unhappy with the inactive leaders, so they already joined the team.

It is Our Team, Not My Team !!!!
Many of the members are Sweet Oldies Like me and have been preserving foods for decades.
We love to grow what we Put Up and Love sharing our knowledge and Love getting New Ideas.
Any one interested, Please to come and join us.
We'd Love to "Put Up" With You !!!!

Here is the link for the team.

In Advance, Thank You for Reading My Blog. You are all the BEST !!!!

    Thanks Patti.........just read your Bog and it did answer many of my questions I had posted. Good luck on the new team. Am not one to can but an eater I am. Perhaps as I journey through that Golden Age, I will indulge! Really need to check out some of those Diabetic Teams you have listed though.

    Good emoticon and emoticon

    Patti this is going to be a great team and I have lots to learn from all the members. Although I've been making jams and chutneys and bottling fruit for a while, I haven't done the veg. and putting them up is much more useful as I'm trying to lose weight and those jams and chutneys don't half contain a lot of calories! 1000 thanks to you for starting us up. emoticon

    Good for you! You are just one dynamite lady! I think I won't join, at least right now. I don't grow much (although I've got lots of tomato plants in this year) & I certainly don't "put up". My grandmother did, & I can still taste her pickled cucumbers. Plus I haven't been very active on SP lately -- keep meaning to get back in the swing of things but have been too doggoned busy.

    I'm sure you& the other sweet old ladies will have a ball there, though!
