I found your post- no need to reply to my last message. Got it going out soon.

Dear Joann:


Thanks for friending  me on Susainable NE Seattle.  I went on the website to upload my picture but when I tried to “open” the picture the program kicked me back to my documents file.  Not sure what the problem was. 


At any rate, I have several things I’d like to do on the site, but am not sure how to.  I’m wondering if I might gt together with you for an hour Saturday afternoon or Monday at Third Place Books to work on these things:


Uploading a picture

Sending out my own friends requests

Joining some guilds

Creating an event to discuss seed saving with others


As well, I saw the poster at the library for the events of the group for the fourth quarter.  The December event is a potluck and crafting gathering.  However, the poster doesn’t say how the crafting comes into the picture.  Are we to bring crafting projects to work on at the event?  Crafts we have made?  Is it an exchange.  I would like to sign up for this event, but don’t want to show up with the wrong thing in terms of the crafting segment.


Please call me if you are willing to meet for a short time.  I will not check email anymore until Sunday or Monday.  206-877-3545.


Thanks, Joann.

Hello, Joan,

I have a message from another fake "member" that is clearly phishing. (I sent you a message in September about the first one, and you booted them.) Are other people getting these messages as well? I'm wondering why our little group, which seems too small to attract much attention, is being targeted. Weird, and a little creepy. I don't have this problem in any other group I'm in.

The message I got:

Hello Dear,

How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on( the full details.
Have a nice day.

Pauline Atta


Sylvan Bonin,

 P.S. I tried to send this as a message, but the "send" button wouldn't work. So I decided to post it as a comment. When I came over here, I saw the same message to you. I guess that answers one of my questions.

Is there going to be a barter fair this year?

Hi Joann,

I've missed seeing you and have wanted to reconnectt. I thought I'd check out what's happening here before calling you and found out about the Emergency Preparedness Kits. I'd like to attend. Is there a fee? Will you be there?

Hope to see you soon,

Hi Joann,

I see from your profile info that you are a graphic designer! I was wondering if you'd have any interest in using your skills to help make a Transition-related computer game as part of the Awareness Guild here. I am a game programmer, and I would like to lead an effort to develop computer games that would help spread awareness and understanding of issues such as peak oil, soil erosion, sustainable agriculture, and financial systems.

If this sounds interesting and you'd like to know more about it, send me a reply on my page!

Thanks, Joann,  Yes, I wish I could have been with you at that event last summer. I look forward to becoming more family with the group and contributing my skills and talents where needed. Warmly, Trudy

Thanks Joann. Yes, Sander's leading a Spokespeople NE, Nov 19. I plan to post it -- may call you if I cannot figure out how-to. Jim

Thanks, Joanne.  Not only did I find my way into registering on the site ... but also joined the emergency prep group :-)  Saturday meeting was great.  Thanks again.

Trying to RSVP, but the site doesn't capture. 

I've written 6/11 into my calendar. Hoping to get at least one neighbor to join me. 

Thanks for all your work to keep these efforts rolling, Joann.

Slow Food Seattle has a great book group. The next meeting is May 13, 6 pm, Roy Street Coffee and Tea, 700 Broadway East. The book will be Growing a Farmer by Kurt Timmermeister.

Hi back from Michigan I'm sure.  The only state to loose population in the last census.

And you're right Ann Arbor Transition group has been very active.   They have put on a # of very good well attended reskilling events.

Thanks, Joann! I posted a blog entry I thought this group might be interested in: a laptop recycling event. Is there a way to put the same info in the Events part of the home page?

Hi Joann,

Is it possible to add an event (I had trouble...)  Talking Trash, co-sponsored by Pacific Science Center, Seattle City Council and Zero Waste Seattle, next Thursday;

Or would I mention it in the forum...?


Hands On looks fabulous.  I'll bring Dahlia, my daughter who's 5.



At 2:18pm on January 21, 2011, Karin de Weille said…

I'll be there.  Thanks!

I was planning on attending the hands on event, and maybe I could teach something, although not sure what. What are you looking for? You can email me directly at


On a different subject -- is Sustainable NE Seattle going to be hosting a "formal" 2-3 day training any time soon?
