    Hello from Pflugerville!

    I usually check during the day, but always before going to bed - never know when I might need something to "think about" while sleeping!

    I wish I had more time to check it, but with working full time, and having most of my evenings full of meetings, etc, I try to check it at least once a day and have to be happy with that. On the weekend, I do check it more if I am around.

    I try to check at least once a day so the email doesn't pile up. Love the board!

    Gee, you all make me feel better. I usually check the Board in the morning and if I can, I'll check it again at night. I thought I checked the Board too much, but I guess I'm " normal".

    When I turn the computer on, I will always check this board. Usually 3 or 4 times a day

    Where do you find "what's new"?

    Before they switched to this program I'd check at least once a day. Now I check once or twice a week. The reason is I can't figure out how to highlight the threads I've already read. I hate opening and start reading then realized I've read it already. I still like the older version of this board. I don't know how to bookmark so I copy and paste into an email what I want to save and email it to myself.

    I check the board a few times a day, I have a question is board considered a quilters Facebook? I seldom check my account there. I learn so much here and get great ideas.

    Lynnc, that's why I always read the 'yesterday' postings. Then I know I won't read them twice because I sit down once during the day and go through them. It works for me.

    I usually check the board first thing in the morning and around noon. Seems like after that my day gets a little unorganized.

    Sometimes I check daily and don't spend TOO much time here; sometimes it's a couple of days, depending on what my work schedule is like, and in the spring and fall, when the guys are in the field and I don't have a lot of time to get online. Then again, I can spend HOURS just playing catch-up!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    just once a day - at night after work and after I've read the latest on-line news, watch the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, do a few crossword puzzles then come here and check out What's New. I have to have my daily fix of this board. have gotten so many good tips on quilting here. Thanks ladies (and gents).

    Kind of depends on what I am involved in. Usually in the morning with coffee and sometimes in the evening just before bed. If I have to take a break from something during the day I usually will check in and see what is going on.

    Generally, in the evening while sitting with my husband watching TV. I check different sections on different evenings. Sometimes, pictures, sometimes, chit-chat, sometimes, recipes, sometimes; vintage machines, etc. All ways something interesting. I still miss the old board but we have to learn to move on in life. I love to see the avatars of everyone and old familiar ones...
