I will love the light for it shows me the way,
yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Life is a series of experiences,
each one of which makes us bigger….
For the world was built to develop character,
and we must learn that the
setbacks and griefs we endure
help us in our marching onward.

I am pretty sure I am not the only person on this list who has the occasional POOPY WEEK?
After working so hard to put the finishing touches on our website, spammers got a hold of several of the email addresses we use to communicate with Ripples members and last week we began getting a stream of spam addressed to “join”, “leave,” “betterblurb” and “submissions.” Shame on you spammers!!!
To remedy the situation, we created new email addresses to communicate with our members (see below). Please note that instead of writing out the exact email address, we substitute [at] for the @ symbol so hopefully spammers can not easily harvest these addresses from our online archives. It will add an extra step for you and for that I apologize.
The GOOD NEWS is that thanks to out talented and patient programmer Amanda, we were able to extricate most of the problematic parts of our website and we will soon be unveiling some NEW fun ripply features.
We will MARCH ONWARD, and hope that whatever challenges you face this will will not prevent you from marching onward also!
p.s. WOW did members respond well to last week’s request for good quotes with a wave of inspiration. THANKS!
