In Honor of
Johnny Appleseed Day
March 11th

JOHNNY APPLESEED DAY HONORS one of America's great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. John Chapman was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he planted apple trees along the way, and sold trees to settlers. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.

There is plenty of documentation to support claims for Johnny Appleseed Day on March 11th and on September 26th. So, here's the skinny on the two dates:

  • John Chapman was born on September 26, 1774. This date is undisputed.
     
  • It is believed he died on March 11, 1845. However, his date was not formally recorded and the date of death is disputed.

HOW I GOT WHERE I AM
Still hoping you'll be writing your "story" of where and why you're living where you are. Some have chosen to write a lengthy narrative, which has been wonderful; but I fear it's frightened off others.

Please just share what made you choose your hometown to retire in; or if you're still working, please tell us where and what keeps you going. We'll take stories of any size - we just want to catch up on YOU!

You can email them to me at mckwd@aol.com or post them on "What's New!"

You'll find the answers we've received so far - How I Got Where I Am -  listed to the left of the HOME PAGE about half way down and just before "Special Series."

PHOTO GALLERIES
Classmates and guests of this site can now share photos on any topic they feel would interest the rest of us. Simply:

  1. Click on "Photo Galleries" in the column on the left side of the home page.
     
  2. Click on an existing photo show to enter a gallery someone else created.
     
  3. Go to the last page of pictures in the gallery and click on the "Create Your Own Photo Gallery Here" button at the bottom of that page.
     
  4. Follow the directions on screen to create your gallery of photos. Remember as always on this site, you must be able to find where the pictures are on your computer. In other words, what file they are in. Most will be in "My Pictures."

Only you can add photos to galleries you create, and all photos you add will be credited to you inside your gallery!

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK

We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.

The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.

A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.

 So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
