Re: NFC: ADMIN - Not Yelling! :) - List Change ... ?
All this talk about Links and posting pics to the NFC group got me to

set up a while back? You can post messages and after downloading pics thru
Photo Point you can put them on the board too..
Why do we need 40 plus bulletin boards to post things we cant put on this
Not yelling ...Just wondering....
