    Yes, I remember that you moderate a board, Lynn I had asked, on the "main" board, for everyone who I had listed - moderators, CUSH people, people who wanted to host a chat - to email me to get their passwords. Very few people did. I don't know if it's because they didn't read the post or not. It was the one titled something like "Board moderators Check In". I figured that was a post that moderators would read, but I was apparently mistaken. Anyway, I'll PM you the password, Lynn. Thanks for asking about it

    It says they're machine washable - but we'll see. Sometimes, they say that they are, and techincally they are, but they never look the same. We'll see how these go. Sue, maybe youshould get lots, so when one gets dirty, you'll alwas have a spare LOL

    Cushie Totebags

    Thanks, Sue - I'm going to order some, too, but I'm going to wait for a bit and see if I can get enough stuff to qualify for the free shipping offer. I hope to get some more things up and ready over the next week. Think that there would be any call for barbecue aprons? Here's a current list of the blank products that I can put logos on. http://www.cafepress.com/cp/info/products/index.aspx Next week, they will add the stickers, flying discs, license plate frames and wall clocks. ?I'm hoping that the stickers will be like those cling things we were talking about before. For July 4th, there will be some kind of plush eagle. ?Not sure what that will look like though.

    Cushie Coffee Mugs...

    When I have some spare time to design the images for them. Anyone here good in computer graphic design? Unfortunately, I can't take the CUSH logo and just plop it on a cup. It has to be converted into an image of a certain size (enough to go around the cup and about 3 inches high) and number of pixels, even if it has a lot of transparent space. There are lots of things like that that I'd like to do, but I'm just running out of time Maybe next week

    Cushie Coffee Mugs...

    People thought that they would be a good idea, but no one had any ideas for sayings on them. I think that everyone was thinking of the Cushie Sweetie mugs - which may or may not be appropriate for the doctor BTW - I just got the news tonight. There will be an Easter Bunny available. Now to think of something for that one. They also are adding baseball jerseys, mini basketball hoops and tiles. I didn't think anyone here would be interested in those...

    Cushie Coffee Mugs...

    People in the chat last week were talking about a special mug to give to their doctors. I'm going to design a new one so that you don't have to proclaim your endo your "Cushie Sweetie" Anyone have any ideas for a good slogan or what to put on it?

    I've posted here before about iGive.com and several people have used this wonderful site to buy things online. This website allows people to shop at the same stores that you normally would and at the same prices. However, with a special agreement, they contribute some of the profits to the upkeep and monthly charges of running this site and message board. People from these boards have earned $95.64 since this program started in November and I thank everyone who has done this. There's a special going on for this month and next...It's called The New Member bonus. From March 1 through April 30 2002, each new member who joins iGive and shops will earn an additional $5 to help pay for these boards and the Cushing's Help site. That's on top of the standard of up to 26% from shopping. Only hitch - you've got to shop within 45 days of joining. Joining is free. With over 340 stores now at iGive.com, they've got some great choices.
