May I ask why do we need yet another? We are only on page 4 of the present one.

Hello ladies, I have just come across your site and decided it was just what I needed. I am looking forward to some friendly faces and useful advice and maybe just to share some news, good and bad. This is my first post so would like to say a very good day to all of you out there xx

Welcome Craftylady there are many sites to try and the vast majority of GNs are very pleasant.

Hi charleygirl, this is more for people who haven't registered yet. So those who come on occasionally to read the threads but haven't signed up yet to post or receive the newsletter. smile

Hi everyone, I've just signed up so am completely green as to how I go about using Gransnet. I'm not very technical I'm afraid, so any help would be lovely.

Aldom Sat 30-May-20 15:00:12

Hello Jazlady. I'm quite new too. Been a lurker for longer. Anyway welcome from me. Charleygirl is very good at helping get started. I'm sure she will be on the thread soon to give you advice. But in the meantime, go to Gransnet Forums. Chats is where you find Good morning Gransnet. That's a gentle thread for starters. Otherwise click on topics of interest, and add your post, but you need to go to the last page of the thread before writing, otherwise it is lost in the middle. You will soon get the hang of how GN works by playing about. Hope you like it here. Good luck, best wishes. 😊🍀💐

Hello everyone who is new to us. Search around through the active threads to see if there's something of interest to you and jump straight in! Always good to hear different opinions and perspectives, so welcome.

Hello, does anyone feel like me. It’s great news that more &more places are opening up but unless you have your own transport, you still cannot go to places. I don't feel safe enough to use public transport yet. This is making me feel even more isolated at present.

Charleygirl5 Thu 11-Jun-20 13:11:20

Welcome Keeley. I am inclined to agree with you. I do not intend getting on a bus or tube anytime soon. I do drive but only locally so at least I can go to supermarkets.

The plus is I must be saving money as I am not going out for lunch and/or coffees or browsing the shops, seeing something I must have!

Aldom you don't have to go to the last page, anything you post with automatically appear as the last/most recent post on the thread!

Charleygirl5 Tue 23-Jun-20 12:26:27

Welcome- I also live in London, NW, and I have moved indoors temporarily as it was a tad hot. I am rather enjoying this lovely weather.

Hi everyone I’m new to this post, but I have a question to all you ladies. I am 62 years old and very active, for the past few months I have been having funny turns I can only describe it as feeling like I’m walking I’m marshmallows, I don’t feel dizzy but kind of drunk feeling. This is starting to worry me does anyone else have this problem. Many thanks for reading this.
Regards Lynn

Charleygirl5 Fri 26-Jun-20 11:38:43

Hello and welcome. You will need to start a new thread, preferably under "health" if you want an answer to that question because few people read this and it is really only to say hello to anybody who has popped in.

Two gentle threads are Good Morning and soop's kitchen. You will soon recognise those who pop in daily.

kittylester Sat 27-Jun-20 20:01:43

Can I just point out that this site is not just for women. Men are very welcome too!

Tillytina Sat 08-Aug-20 11:55:55

TrendyNannie6 Sat 08-Aug-20 12:04:50

Hi tillytina, welcome to gransnet I’m guessing this is your first post, I think you will get this post noticed, if you start a new discussion under the chat thread,

Illte Fri 11-Sep-20 17:12:36

I can't see how to start a discussion on my phone.

My laptop has died😱

Charleygirl5 Sat 12-Sep-20 11:33:46

Again you will get more help if you open this query on a chat thread. Sorry, I cannot help you.

One of my close friends is not sticking to the Covid rules and regulations. We only speak by text and I have never questioned her when she tells me of her plans which are not Covid friendly. Would you say anything?

Marydoll Fri 25-Sep-20 11:52:29

Welcome to all the newcomers. As this is a welcome thread, not many people will see those questions which are off topic.
It's best to start a new thread, with a hint to your question in the title. That way you will have more chance of a response.

Go to Forums , scroll down and find the topic you want, e.g Coronovirus , click on it and then choose New Discussion.
