There are other groups available and we could start our own. The team

Any opinions?

While I have been away for a while, it is always so informative to receive
notices of activity in the group and ALWAYS good to review the info and sug
I too would hate to see RPM go away. Count me in for $10 towards the fee.
That being said, change is always there luring us in. Shoot, I still don't
have a cell phone! LOL. I tried Facebook and well, see if you can find me
there now. Just was not worth my time. Then again, if RPM were there, ma
ybe I would be as well. Something to consider. I like this group and form
at. yet, I understand cost. What if we experiment with a social media acc
ount and format just to see how it goes for a while, and keep this group fo
r another year? That way we will know how feasible it is. Also we could s
imply ask for donations (keeping people posted as to when we have reached t
he goal) see what is given and go from there. If my math is correct, with
my 'pledge' we are already at the half way point. Are there 5 more people
out there that can spare 84 cents per month to keep RPM online for another
year? :-)))

Again, put me down for $10. And lets try a social media format as well jus
t for comparison.

Any other thoughts?
Thank again, Jim and Phyllis, for all you and others have done to keep this
forum viable and interesting!
