These are things you can set in the User Control Panel. Look up at the top of the page .... you will see our logo, and a box under it showing where you are (and on the right a box that should say something like "Welcome, expatgirl" - below that will be a line of links you can click on ... click on the one that says User CP.

This will open a new screen - in the left-hand column of the screen you should see something that says Control Panel. Below that - you will find the controls you need.

Click on "Edit Signature" to enter/edit your signature line - what I assume you mean by "quotes".

Click on "Edit Avitar" to upload or change your avatar. Your avatar must be a GIF or JPG format graphic file - and can not exceed 80x80 pixels in displayable size, nor can it be larger than 64Kb in file size.

When done - just click on the "Portal" button (to the left of the "User CP" button) to get back to the opening page.

If you have any problems with either of these - send me a PM and I'll help walk you through it.

FYI - How many times a person has posted is not always a good indication of how long they have been a member.

that would be me

Since we are a really close group of friends (newbies included, of course!), I wanted to have something that we could physically touch, if only for a few days. I have had such joy seeing my dear buddies wearing it!

PS - I was a site helper for a time, but when it came time to sell my house, I let the admins know that I needed to take a break. Now I am honored (and I really mean that) to welcome all the new folks as they walk through the door. (thus the title under my name). I'm like the Wal*Mart greeter lady

Well, Ms. jkath and WalMart greeter--yes, I'll need a buggy, please. Thank you very much!!!!

What a wonderful idea you had-------I'm so impressed and such a simple and yet personal statement. I have two favorite aprons and everytime I put them on I feel "different". Like a chef, I guess. It's an admisson of let's get down work now that we have the uniform on. I love the pictures that were posted on this site of people wearing the apron. What great history!!!!


to work.

Dear jcath--my server is giving my problems--sorry about that---all I wanted to add before I got dropped was that I was very happy that you started this apron adventure. I wish that I could participate but I live overseas and am due to return next week. However, I will keep up with the DC apron's adventure with much pleasure. Much luck to you and for having great ideas!!!
