    There are ( as of the time I'm typing this ) 8,957 members on the BB . But only 580 members are considered active . I guess that means they have posted in the last 30 days or something like that .

    Can you imagine if we were all part of a local church ?( Yes , it would be one of those mega-churches .) If less than 1/16th were active how sad would that be !

    On second thought , perhaps it could not be likened to a mega-church . Almost 9,000 might be on the rolls , but less than 600 show up for services .

    Lets see now....
    Have you ever been divorced?
    How long is your hair?
    Have you ever jumped out of an airplane
    And do you like liver and onions?

    I wonder what percent of the vote you would have to get? I think on this board you might have a hard time getting even 50% to agree. :smilewinkgrin:

    Yes, as long as abcgrad and me can bring our rolling pins to the services.

    Someone has to keep you in line! :smilewinkgrin: :saint:

    Not very good. And I have lots of experience in eating them!

    How about apple? Since you're on a diet, I have a good recipe for sugar free apple pie, sweetened naturally (not nutrasweet, yuk.)

    This throws my candidacy for a loop.

    I am willing to support anyone to get my own position! :smilewinkgrin:

    Maybe we can form a search committee, and visit the inactive members...

    Or better yet, we can call a business meeting, and announce that something important will be voted on, and watch the inactive members flock to the board...
