LOL, Thomas!  That toggle switch is reserved for the night scene.  :D

Hope I'm entitled to start a new thread here.....

Of course a member can start the monthly 'blog' if admins are not present (I was on the road to more aquatic plants :) ).

However, it is recommended one copies the conditions set forth in the normal monthly opening thread and adds those to the initial post.

Only the admins can lock the previous month thread.
