"These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice...and just as the touch of a button on our set will fill the room with music, so by taking down one of these volumes and opening it,
one can call into range the voice of a man far distant in time and space, and hear him speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart.
I can't tell if I was wung or if there was a glitch! I noticed my wings were fading the other day and so I made a quick little donation to brighten them up a bit. When I checked to confirm the new experiation date, though, it was 2 months in the future instead of one! I've no idea if someone wung me the same time I did it myself or if there was a hiccup in the system.
...that I needed to renew them. I logged on on Easter Sunday and there were my wings, fully refeathered and flapping away again, with an expiration date a full 2 months away! Thank you, mystery winger, whoever you are! (I've noticed that this has happened to several people lately. I suspect that someone is watching out for fading wings and doing the RABCK thing!)
My wings were about to expire, when I submitted an article to the newsletter. I also told a few people about my 3 year running nonfic bookbox, and I'm not sure if a bookbox member gave me wings, or the site for submitting the article? In any case,it's pretty cool!!
MyssCyn, I won wings from you in a draw, about a month ago. Today I noticed that they don't expire until July. Did you wing me for two months, or did someone else extend them? Whichever one it is, thanks!
Plussed is such a cute term and conjures up all sorts of story lines. Thanks so much to the kind soul who extended my members plus wings. I'd been watching the end date so carefully too. If the $US keeps falling I plan to get a year's supply but will wait until just before we head overseas in July.
Wow! I just noticed I have wings.. where did they come from? Thanks to whoever send them my way!! (I'm afraid they'll be as addicting as the rest of the site.. now I'm going to have to make sure I keep them ;-)
Second graders in cbostler's school class received a month of Member's Plus from a generous, mysterious friend. Thank you! There are so many choices for fun name decorations that appeal to seven and eight-year-olds. Frankenstein, devil horns, soccer balls, dogs... how cool!! A vote was taken, and the Eagles will wear a skull & crossbones first. THANKS!
gymnastic team! Thank you, thank you, whoever just put a permanent smile on my face :-D. My Union Flags will be waving for Team GB during the Olympics ;-) Sorry, Dutch friends, but I'll shout for your team, too. Hmmm - Olympic rings would be a more tactful "wings" emblem. Which forum do I need to suggest that in?
awww....I just looked at my page today, and saw someone renewed my wings again ! I knew they were supposed to expire end of October , and was feeling a bit sad as I can never afford to get them , then I see they are renewed for another month ! wow thank you sooooooooooooooo much , svoight, you've brought tears to my eyes (seriously) I wish you were here, so I could give you the biggest , tightest hug I am able
> Should I be thanking someone or letting > BCSupport know they made an error?
Erm... how would we know? Both are entirely possible. If you can't sleep because you're fretting about this, I'd send a message to the Store Manager and ask if anyone gifted you with wings for a year. Perhaps she can look that up. I'm not sure, though.
Just now! I was clicking the back button trying to find some post that I had read earlier this morning and suddenly I had wings. I thought for a minute I had clicked right back to when I actually had them! :D
