    No I don't. Jacqui usually gets the contest going, but she's having computer trouble so I started it for her this year.

    I'm just a busy body who has a hard time leaving the Forum alone.

    Yvonne's post are always interesting...to say the least. I've learned a lot from reading them and they are always on spot.

    Yvonne is someone that is usually here to help and you'll likely find her very helpful in the future because of that.
    Funny!

    Yvonne has been here for 7 and a half years and hasn't found the log out button yet.
    So she helps all us newbies whilst she's about.

    If I understand your question correctly...
    this forum was started by a guy named Josh, who doesn't participate much anymore (or at least not much since I've been a member). It's still his forum and if something malfunctions, he takes care of it. Often, if you can't reach Josh and he doesn't respond to pms etc, Yvonne seems to be able to reach him. She is one of a handful of moderators on the forum and is very respected. She has her own private turtle/tortoise rescue in California and has been working with these animals for decades. She's a good person to talk to and one who's advice should always be taken seriously.

    Agreed. Josh is also very nice to deal with, if you are ever lucky enough to speak with him. I have.

    I think Yvonne made this thread up herself and you all got suckered in:p. Very tricky @Yvonne G your good:D

    Okay, of course I'm kidding here.;) Just couldn't let it go, it was just too good of an op. Yvonne is busy here. Besides what she post on her own, she is alerted to help many times too.:)
