Hi all myLotters and friends/family etc. I have been away from here for sometime just checking my emails now and then. I had issues with things happenming and have lost almost all interest in this site. I am not in it for the cash but the little I make is missed when I lose it for no apparent reasons. But I am going to do a few discussions today just to update some friends on my gardens and flowers etc. So, have you had issues here that made you leave for an extended period of time? This photo is of my grand neice at the Mall of Amerca last month. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

We missed you, GB! I thought you must have gone on holidays! It would be unbelievable to have a look at the Mall of America - I've read about it, and they say it even has swimming facilities and an adventure park! I'd get lost. Our local shopping mall is rubbish, and it only has NINE tables in its alleged 'food court'! (They don't keep them very clean, either - so even if you get one, you have to push the dirty coffee cups out of the way!)

Thanks, GB - that's absolutely amazing! I'd get lost in there - you'd never need to come up for air!

What a lovely little girl! There have been other people complaining, too. One had obscene/suggestive tags added to their discussions, another has a stalker, there have been complaints about deletions, etc. In addition, there has been no June payout yet--at least not to me. I'm glad you came back for a bit. I really enjoy reading your adventures, seeing your photos and hearing about the garden.

I has rude tags added, points and cash lost and rating dropped slightly. Why? Who knows. But I still read the discussions in my emails daily but have not been active very much. I did start 7 discussions today. I've made just over $5 in the past 3 months due to me being absent whereas I make $30 a month usually. Oh well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Wow! Where have I been? My heads must have been in the clouds. I've been on and off Mylot a lot this past two months, but never really got involved in the stuff going on, just mostly answering news and discussions and such. Anyway, sorry to hear about the trolls on the site. I had a troll about a year ago. She's still lurking around the site. But don't worry. Things will get back to normal.

OH I guess I got bored after my sponsor got banned and I stayed away for a while. And once in a while the discussions don't seem fresh and I stay away for a while. But in general I like the site and I keep coming back. PS she's a cutie! :-)

Grandpa Bob, I know we're all extra busy this time of year. I am sorry you've had some bad experiences on here. I hope they can be overcome. I've had a couple, but not been deterred by them. The earnings are my little savings account of sorts, but the best is the people and all that I learn here! Your great neice is adorable :) Again, I hope to see you here more often again. Karen

I might have known there was some reason why you were missing. I had checked and you were still on my friends list so I just assumed you and Debbie were away on a vacation. After seeing your flowers and garden shots it's obvious where you have been. I haven't had too much problem with myLot and I guess I'm just plain stupid because I have no idea how or why some people are having issues and knowing how I am so computer illiterate let me guess it's eazy to understand??? Glad you came back.

Vacation? Not while I have to care for dad. Noone else will do it for more than a few hours. So we can't get out all that often. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I've been wondering where the heck you've been...too many people I know are leaving here or just aren't active anymore. I haven't myself, not as much as I'm usually but only due to my dealing with my strained wrist injury that I still have I that makes typing a challenge Your grand niece is ADORABLE Hey where's Minnie??

I have had some huge problems Bob. But, I am here still. The kind words and prayers of my MyLot friends have been the glue to hold me together. I am grateful. Glad to see that you didn't go the wayside. I had begun to worry that you left us for good! Big huggers to you.

I am not as active on here. I do respond to some discussions. As usual if they are not of interest to me I don't respond because I have no idea what I am talking about. hahaha Some I get there is nothing to respond to, it is just stating things. I do read them all that I get via email. I have been busy the past couple of weeks keeping my daughter's two dogs and my grandson. She and her husband are on their way here right now to get them and will head back tomorrow. Then in a couple of weeks after my son in law leaves for Illinois to go to work she and my grandson will come back, she will stay for a week and my grandson will stay for a few weeks. Oh yes, also I am getting so excited that Big Brother will be starting up next week.

We have messed seeing you here too. It is good to hear from you. I know you are very busy with your garden also. I have had issues here also that made me leave for a while also. I like the extra cash here but sometimes it is not worth it when someone harrasses us, when we are just trying to have fun here as it is.

To my knowledge, I haven't had any major difficulties here. I lost points a while back when I crossed someone's path under "politics". It doesn't matter the quality of the discussion - it only matters that you agree, apparently. But, I've cut back on those discussions dramatically and word my responses very carefully when I do contribute. Shouldn't be that way, but it is. There are a lot of aggressive people on myLot anymore and they seem to feel they own the sites they're on. They try to control anyone who doesn't see it their way, it would seem. Pity. I still like it here. I think I'll stay.

The only issues that pull me away are work issues, or working online issues. I am fortunate enough not to notice if I lose points or something.
