This will have to be a quick one
Because I'm waiting for a call
We do not have Broadband
No, we don't have it at all
Computers and phones don't mix in our house
But all I really want to say
Is Costen and Leif H to you
Have a very happy birthday:) :D

17-02-07, 10:52
Here's a birthday greeting
For cdahlin and tanyaoz

Happy birthday to both of you and Tanya enjoy what is left of yours.:) :D

18-02-07, 11:25
Paul or Vern I'm confused today
But then I sometimes can be
Should it be Vern Paul or Paul Vern?
I hope you can forgive me
Best wishes for your birthday and
Judy and Kevin's not forgetting
Kevin of course is kpaavola
Moderator extraodinaire I'm betting

A very happy birthday to all three of you and Kevin I do miss seeing your name as Moderator since the new setup of Finlander, or am I not looking in the right place?

No birthdays today, but this is to apologise in advance if I miss a few birthdays this week. We are having a couple of the upstairs ceilings in the house removed and replaced, due to a recent flood.:( Although the "office" where the computer is, is not one of the rooms affected, I am not going to be able to get into it, at least during the day time, as it is going to be "sealed off". Hopefully I will be able to send birthday greetings at night before the birthdays are over, but just in case, a very happy birthday to everyone who is having a birthday over the next few days.:(

28-02-07, 09:23
I've just got time to send this poem
Before the builders arrive
And I am trapped downstairs again
I'm sure I will survive.

A very happy birthday to Deb.

A very happy birthday to klasilfver and caravan89 for his big 60. Perhaps you don't have the term "baby boomer" where you are, but here in the UK, it is what they call anyone who turned (turns) 60 last year or this year, i.e. born in the couple of years following the end of WWII.

I'm going away for a few days
A short holiday by the sea
There won't be any poems then
I'm not taking computer with me
Seven birthdays will be happening
In the time that I am away
There are two of them tomorrow
But none occurring the next day
Calendar shows three on Sunday
And Monday two are showing
Hope all the birthdays are really good
Must pack now, or I won't be going

A very happy birthday to Ferrycap and Sam (Sam Te) for Friday, Robertopalm (The Big 60), Debbiesantelli and Carin for Sunday and Kaiponen and Lierikfiddle for Monday. "See ya" on Tuesday.:) :D

A happy birthday to Walter and Albeck
A poem I am trying to do
Although its your birthday tomorrow
These are very early wishes to you

Sorry the wishes are early. I start my TWICE A YEAR JOB tomorrow, "invigilating". (supervising high school exams) which means a very early morning start. This might also mean I miss some birthdays in the next few weeks, but I will try hard not to. If any birthdays are missed between now and the end of June, when the exams end, I am very sorry, but happy birthday to you all. Don't worry Hasse, I realise your birthday is towards the end of the week and won't forget you - I hope!:) :) :) :D :D :D :eek:

So many people with birthdays today
Best wishes to all five of you

And a very special wish to Hasse for all the good work he does keeping this site running so smoothly. Happy birthday Hasse

Just returned from vacation and am catching up on posts. Imagine my surprise to see your birthday greetings from the 23rd. Coral LaCrosse is my first cousin, once-removed. Didn't know she had joined last year. Sent her a PM, hope she still checks in. Her grandma was my father's sister.

Another poem, a few hours early
There's a reason for that, you see
reddenblu and Henry14, you share it
With the husband belonging to me

And leaving quite early, I hope I awake
To all three, a very happy birthday:) :D

This poem is firstly an apology
For a birthday missed yesterday
I don't very often miss them
Lasare 2, a belated happy birthday

Now for today's birthday
R Niemelä it's for you
A very happy birthday wish
For today and all year through

These next few wishes are in advance
It will be difficult making contact for a while
It could be days, weeks, even more
I bet that's made you all smile.

There are no birthdays tomorrow, but happy birthday to Sven Erik, jmmccart99, greennock and Lena Nyberg (the Big 40) for Thursday and to Eric Anttila for Friday 17th.

I'll be back briefly on the weekend so will try to send some more then, but probably not in rhyme.:( :) :D

I wish I had stayed in bed

Many happy birthday wishes

To climatecity, melander

12-11-07, 01:10
...and succeeded to register and post a message. Thus all who had subscribed to this thread got an unnecessary commercial message.

Since we aren't interested in obscene material and drug sellers over here I hope that everybody informs me if this happens another time.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

29-05-08, 16:29
Sheila, Kihlgast, Teuvo Broström
Rhyming brain, not working too great
Hope you all have a really great day
At least the greeting is not late

A very happy birthday to you all

:) :D
Hi Gwenda,
THANKS A LOT. For some reason I didn't get a greeting this year.... when I turned 50 :-O *ha-ha* - but I'll survive... seen from your point of view I could be long gone never to return, so I understand why you don't address those members that don't answer within a reasonable time limit... as, in this case, I sure didn't.
I am also truly sorry for this awfull slow reply. I've had a new computer and also changed my e-mail address alias since last time I was here (22-03-2007). Saw this msg from you as I checked up on my old computer for anything missing my attention.

Looking at the message board - is it really true that nobody posted any messages since 2004 ????

Hope you have a nice time, and that this board will remain so that we can all benefit from our discoveries in the ancestry "business".

Best regards,

29-05-08, 16:37
Ehhhhh.... I see now that the last message was from Administrator Hasse on Nov. 12, 2007. Guess I'm used to new posts showing on top of the screen :D *he-he*.. but still a long time ago.. about 6 months.

Is nothing really going on in here anymore... and why not?


June Pelo
29-05-08, 20:36

You ask why nothing is going on. Maybe there isn't something recently in the Chit Chat Forum, but there is usually something going on in other forums daily, especially concerning genealogy. Gwenda used to submit poems on birthdays, but maybe her brain just gave out. :( So in that case, someone else could pick up where she left off. :)

30-05-08, 06:24
Hi June,
Yes... I of course noticed shortly after I send the abv message... darn!!
Very nice to see a lot is going on after all.

Sorry for being a bit too fast on the keyboard earlier! :-o :-)

Everything happens in waves. But in a way you're right. The discussion frequency has been lower the past few months. I can see from the logs that lots of people visit the site - quite the same frequency as before - but a lesser percent has been contributing with messages - questions and answers. Hard to say why. Maybe people in US/Canada are loosing the interest in their roots in Finland? Maybe people have other ways of using their spare time?

Finlander will be here and I really hope that people still can get into contact with their relatives on the other side of the ocean - maybe because of the existance of this kind of a forum.


June Pelo
30-05-08, 17:43
I don't think people are losing interest, but now that the weather is warmer, people have outdoor activities to keep them busy. As for me, I get 1-2 queries a week from people who come across my website and contact me for help. I also tell them about joining the Forum - and some do join. :)

31-05-08, 10:30
Hello Kihlgast and June

Kihlgast, re the poem you didn't receive
Apologies from me, but please believe
You are not the only one, no you are not
On Finlander, a poem, who has not got
Back in October last year, I ceased
Writing poems, cos brain was a bit deceased
It's not much better now, as you can see
But a belated Happy birthday from me:) :) :D

There were several reasons really why the poems stopped. Around that time I was having enormous computer problems. Then Hasse's "Spam" message got me a bit concerned. After that, I didn't start with the poems again, as I was so far behind with birthday greetings and I thought Finlanders must have been getting bored with my poems anyway. Sorry folks. June suggested someone might like to take over from where I left off. They will get no objections from me.

Sören Ahinko
15-06-08, 12:40
A very happy birthday June. You are really the best.
Your help everyone to find there roots and you make all laugh with your jokes.
And we all hope this will be a great day for you.

Bye the way. Lasse Lågland send birthdays wishes to you also.


June Pelo
15-06-08, 19:09
Thanks. Are you related to Lasse's wife Kirsti? I haven't heard from him lately. Best wishes to all of you.

Sören Ahinko
15-06-08, 19:55
Kirsti is my cousin.
And everything seems to be alright with them.
