New Website Notice

Hey Y'all, Registration will no longer be required for the new site. After much consternation, pondering and cyphering it's just going to be far simpler for all involved if the site is not interactive. Believe me when I say: I've earnestly tried to find a simple format for us all. A format that we're all familiar with yet is up to date. And that's where the two worlds collide. So what I've ended up doing is a blending of a lot of the latest and greatest (the new site which is both a website and blog) with some of the old. See Message Hide link on new website's menu. This Message Hide is the latest version of the message board format we currently have been using but with log-in security requirements, spam protection, etc.. YES, it does have that same ole frekin posting picture, link and video format (because it's URL based) BUT it will be far simpler for me to explain HOW TO POST to the message hide than it would've been for me to explain to y'all how to Blog especially as a "community", of sorts , all using the same website as the hub of said community communications. This entire experience is sorta like the ole adage: "Ya don't know what ya don't know til ya learn why ya didn't know it." So I came up with a blending of some the ole with a whole lot of the new as the end solution. I'll do the bloggin which is integrated with our Facebook account, which will then both notify our Facebook members, while, at the same time, also direct them to our site. Even during this testing process I've had folks see our posts on FB , on their phones, which originated from our site, then they'd end up going directly to our site from that very post - that's purdy cool. As far as our new message board (See Message Hide on site menu), it, too, is new and improved (from a security and spam standpoint) and I'll monitor the board as well. And, I've embedded a link on the board that will redirect back to our site. And, I and other members can explain how to post attachments to the board. Trust me, it's not that difficult. There are ads on the board but for a "fee" we may have an ad free board if we so desire. That's the latest and greatest, for now, peace. JJ  


Ladies and Gentlemen of the Widowmakers, On this, the day of our Lord, April 27, 2014 -  let it be known that this is a Blog Post from the Widowmaker website being integrated, simultaneously, with the Widow Makers FB account: They are now as one. Huzzah!

Blue jacket's Blog will be employed as a Cyber-Coummunications-Town Crier, of sorts, for mass communications to all our members; this here blog reaches all our "friends" on Facebook with one, mighty, click of the mouse, which, in-turn, gives them access to the specific blog's 'post' (on whatever electronic device they may be using) while, at the same time, redirecting them to our website within said device. Our website then stays integrated will all its members no matter which format of communication they so desire to utilize. bluecamp

messageboard7Dending upon your specific web-browser's settings... you may, or may not, need to increase the size of how you "view" this site on your browser. Safari browser has a "tab" that increases or decreases rather easily. Firefox browser  also displays this site rather well. If, however, it comes into your browser "small" just increase its "size" within your particular browser's "view settings". Oh yeah... the Header Photo (main pic on top of page) will change as you navigate thru site. And, if you click the header photo, it will also change so you can browse all the photos that are dedicated to this location. Pictures will be periodically added to this area, as we are "rich" in photos, and because it's a convenient, user friendly, way to view them while visiting the site. Not all photos can be "header" photos, due to either their orientation or quality, but the ones that "crop" well, have the quality, will be placed here so keep "lookin". JJ
