    :Retro smile: Hopefully the stars will remember what gave them their big break and raise a bit of awareness in red carpet interviews. ;)

    Compost! Is there a smiley face that even comes close to the emotion I'm feeling right now?

    Yes, Helen, the numbers look encouraging indeed. And the judges will love your video.

    Is there any reason we can't post a blurb on the CFIDS Assn. Facebook site? There is a lot of traffic there.

    Woohoo! That's $1000 for each group! now we have to hang onto that spot for 3 days. Is there anyone who would feel comfortable pursuing the CFIDS assoc site? I don't have a connection there

    As well as CAA, there are lots and lots of Facebook groups not attached to any one non-profit if one searches for CFS, FMS, etc. And non-profits outside North America would be less likely to be annoyed than the CAA that they're not getting money, is my guess. Not saying the CAA would do anything.

    I just posted on Action for ME and asked if the pacing forum on facebook could post a reminder. I think we need a pretty big push to hold our position- I'm sure the person we usurped is not going to be pleased! Can anyone else think of a place?

    Has anyone mentioned the contest in the Advocacy section of co-cure.org? If not, would it be appropriate to do so? I must confess I do not know how to do that.

    Ok, that should appear reasonably soon (messages are pre-moderated).

    Bumping. The turnip video remains in 2nd place. Good. Very good.

    Those of you who haven't voted yet, two days left. Want to try for 1st place?

    Dec 16- I began the thread describing an unpleasant interaction. The contest is over, and the interaction is no longer relevant, so I edited and removed it.....

    Dec 13 I could be insulted, but I think I'll interpret it this way. We are a major threat and we've done an amazing job at doing this the right way. Besides, in real life I actually don't resemble any of those turnips. So there!
    I won't take this further but I am concerned we might get some nasty comments tomorrow from this person. We must be hitting a nerve. I think our best response is to be upbeat, oblivious, continue on with our positive comments, and VOTE!

    Yeah, those turnips are looking mighty cool now! It will be really interesting to see if your video wins Helen, as I do believe it can. It's more creative than the others so the judges should take note...:) No cares about ignorant comments. This is something good and positive to vote for!

    How rude!

    Is there a way to report the rude comments to the website administrator?
