Yes, you heard me correctly.  Stevie, over at The Life of Ste has graciously offered his time to put a video together of us here in J-Land.  What an awesome idea!!!  Thanks Ste!!  Now, he isn't going to hunt you down and snag graphics off your journal so stop by his place and see the details.  Get your picture off to him and he will make sure you are part of the clip.  It's a time consuming project so time is of the essence. 
On a side note, this is about us, folks here in J-Land, our community.  Lets get the word out.  So many folks are still not aware.  It doesn't matter if you had a journal from day 1 or started 1 day ago.  It's for everyone!  Find a graphic, post an entry, leave comments when you visit.  Help us spread the word so everyone is included.  There is only so much we can do, we need your help.  We have the graphic contest, the Pet Memorial, the Memorial Quilt Squares, the Video, and more to come.   Put Vivian on alerts so you get the updates.  Will you help?

Anniversary Chatlog   across the pond chat?

Now about tonight's chats. I believe during either the Now about tonight's chats. I believe during either the 1st J-Land Anniversary or during the 1st J-Land awards, the Special Interests Journals Cafe chat room was born. That is the room we'll be using today for the chat abroad and the one here in the US. Here's how it will work. The chat room has a maximum capacity of about 25 people. Once that capacity has been reached, when the 26th person comes in, an additional room will be created and there will be two chat rooms. During one of the previous community celebrations, we had three rooms going simultaneously.

Some people pop in for a quick stay and others stay for the entire time. The year we had the three rooms, I bounced in and out, hoping to visit as many people as possible in each of the rooms. That is my plan for today. If you click on the keyboard graphic, it will take you to the chat room. I guess it's a good thing this is all happening in cyber-space, because I've seen some of those gas guzzling limos some of you plan to pull up in tonight to walk the red carpet. I can't imagine how much it would cost you to fill up those gas tanks in the real world.

I'll see you all tonight in the chat rooms and if you can't make it, please come back here tomorrow for a huge slice of zero calorie anniversary birthday cake. Please remember...the official start time for the chats is 8pm GMT and 8PM ET. Your hosts will not be in the rooms before the appointed hour.  Please click on the keyboard graphic tonight. It will take you to the chat room.
