Well

at least the captcha is gone now! Maybe things will pick up. It would help if there was a link on the main page to let everyone know this board is here. I miss those old days too Kath, we had SO much fun LOL!!

Right at 4 months and not a single new post here. Guess that means we've all given up and moved to facebook. I miss the old days of chatting with my redhead friends. :(

Does it surprise you really? I mean it's pretty obvious that this forum is not a priority of the admin these days. If it was they would have it up and running like the old one as we all keep requesting.

Sounds like you guys had a great weekend. Wish I could have been there with you. :)

Hey Kath

Yep, this format just sucks and no one who runs this place cares, so why should we? It's been a year, almost to the day since this new website went up...more than enough time to get us Redheads a GOOD up and running forum (which many of us have asked over and over about, and keep getting told..." soon, it's coming"). It's obvious they don't care to, so we are pretty much forced to find our Redhead family on facebook. (Which kinda sucks because not everyone is on facebook) Not cool of them to take a real cool forum, so many of us loved and contributed to for so long, away from us and then give us THIS crap. We'd even be more happy to keep our OLD forum, which is still there, just riddled with SPAM and probably viruses galore. I read a comment made by admin on a blog a while back saying they are going to clean the old forum up...LOL...there's no way they are gonna do that...have you SEEN that place?! I thought this would be a new and improved Redrocker site...it took two steps backwards if you ask me, and throwing this crappy forum up for us feels like a slap in the face. Wonder how Joe's fans (or any other large fan group) would feel if admin took their forum away :-\

I sure do miss chatting DAILY with you all, we had so much fun...now, nothing :(
Still love (& miss) you guys!

Wow! This place is just dead. Guess that means either we all hate this format or we've all just moved to facebook. Either way.... Thought I'd pop in and say hi to any diehards who happen to stop by here. :)

Hello Kath, I read your comment about the old forum. I haven't been there in a long time. I was quite aggravated about all the SPAM. It's great that this is available but it really lacks personality.

I started a RedRocker thread on another forum that I belong to. You should come check it out. I'm trying to get the RedHeads to come over and talk. So far I've got only 3 of us registered and cabomighk is the only one that has been stopping by to comment.

Hi Kath - have sent you a PM on facebook with my address. How great is it that your Redhead chums come to the rescue just as you are giving up all hope of getting a signed book. Im chuffed to bits & full of thanks :-)

Hey!

I went to the old hangout, it's still there, but riddled with spam!!!! Hopefully they'll 'remodel' this place soon.

Glad to hear you had such a good experience at the book signing Kath...had a great time myself. Sorry to hear so many others were disappointed. I'm sure Sammy will NEVER do anything like that again LOL!!

Have a great day all!!!

Hey gang!

I went over to post at the old hangout and got redirected here. I was hoping that meant they had finally remolded this place. NOT!

Neil - I have your book, I need your address.

The book signing was a blast for me. Exceed my expectations!! :)

you haven't been able to find someplace to take a pre-order for a signed book? I thought the New Jersey bookstore did it along with one in New York...

Its proving a big enough challenge to find a shop that will take a preorder for a signed book & send to England ... I think the Guitar would be pushing it. :-((

Very nice guitar. But I don't play and I wouldn't buy an autograph.

Are you going to get it? I read about the DNA stamp they put on the item after it's been authenticated. That's a cool system.

Sammy's book Signings.

No I'm not planning any trips. I'm busy with college. We have spring break this next week and I'm going to use it to try to get ahead. I'd like to take the weekends off for the rest of the semester.

I'd love to meet you guys in Jersey. My job takes me to Atlantic city a couple of times a year. I'll have to let you guys know If I'm coming that way. I wish Sammy would open one here. Oh Well.... I love the beach bars. We've got some great places down here.

Good Luck at the book signing!

Happy Friday!

I would love to get out of the city too! Sick of winter, sick of the cold. I wish global warming would take off here in Utah, this winter has been so snowy and cold. Gonna try to head to Moab, where the sun does shine this time of the year. 2 months and 2 days til Sammy in Tahoe!!! Cant wait!

Maybe you'll have to meet some of us crazy East Coast Redheads at Sammy's Beach Bar in Jersey this summer :) Even if Sammy's not there, we have SOOO much fun...and on a hot summer night, the beach bar is just WAY cool!! Wonder if Sammy will do any show's on the East Coast this year. With all things I'm wondering about, I best make out a list so I can remember to ask him everything at the signing LOL...hopefully the signings wont be too rushed.

Happy Friday Redheads!

Hello

I'm excited about Sammy's Book Tour. It doesn't seem like he comes to Florida enough. I wish he'd open a Cantina here in St. Pete. It's been way too long since I've been to a show. I'll be going back on the road in May so maybe we will cross paths somewhere along the way!

Well, I'm almost ready to start my Spring Break. I've got to finish up some posts for my Humanities class and then I can take the weekend off. That will be a first since the semester started.

I hope everyone is well! Happy House cleaning!

I'll settle for today being a little less frustrating than yesterday. I really hate it when people can't seem to do their job right and end up making more work for me.

Hope yours is a good day!

Thanks for passing that message along StPete. Admin has been saying they are working on a new board for us. All good things take time. Once it gets running, I'm sure we'll be ROCKING!!
Hope everyone has a great day. I gotta get my ass in gear here and get some housework done. Going to see a free preview screening of Cedar Rapids tonight :)
