  1. Tomorrow is Gerard Butler GALS 15th Anniversary!

     

    Thanks for all who have helped us grow into a friendly and fun FANmily, celebrating and sharing our love of Gerry.

     

    Thank you to Gerry for always being so supportive of GALS, and all his fans.

     

    And, of course,  thanks to Dr. Em, Dayna, who founded GALS as a gathering spot for all our Gerry love.

  2. Our dear galsfriend lugerry/Barbara is in need of some prayers.

     

    She's run into some trouble from a previous surgery and is asking for the strength of the Prayer Brigade.

     

    Good thoughts and a note on her FB wall or here, will lift her spirits, too!

     

    Thanks, GALS, it's great to know we can count on all of you! :hearts:

     

     

     

  3. Hey Gals!

    Our head gal, Dayna, is having gallbladder surgery on Monday.

     

    I instead of flowers the Mod Squad is going to PayPal her some cash and a card with prayers included.

     

    Let's show our love to Dayna :hearts:

    Jennifer St, Giles is coordinating this, so

     

    If anyone wants to join us, please send via PayPal to:  Jenniferstgiles@gmail.com

     

    Considering how rough things are we know just how much every little bit counts.

     

    :thankyou: for anything you may be able to send.

     

    Prayers, good thoughts and well wishes for the surgery and a speedy recovery are very welcome and appreciated by Dayna :rose:

  4. Rayna has contributed that her Browser Notifications showed "not allowed"

    I don't know why anyone's settings would change. Browsers (Firefox, Chrome, etc) have had security updates and new versions recently, so perhaps the settings were inadvertently changed.   It didn't occur to me that that could be the issue, since the example I posted - from my own account - showed  Browser Notifications Allowed in a green box with a check mark. Thank you Rayna for noticing yours had a RED box :D

    That is a setting each person has to adjust on their individual devices - go into browser security settings

    and choose "allow notifications" for GALS.

    In Firefox (which our site is designed for):

    Tools/Options/Privacy&Security and then

    scroll to Permissions and go to Notifications

    click on Settings and if www.gerardbutlergals.com isn't listed, you can add it in the entry field. click "Save Changes" and it should be good to go.

     

    There have been updates to Firefox and other browsers, so perhaps that's when it went astray. I'm not sure, exactly, but the Notifications are going out from our server

    (screen capture of our ACP)

    I hope you will be able to get it adjusted and start receiving notices!

     

    Thank you, Rayna!

  5. An update:

     

    Dayna worked with the teams at InVision and InMotion on the weekend (our Hosting and Forum providers) Dayna and the team have found that there is nothing  amiss in the settings. The email functions are working, so we're at a loss as to why you and some others are not getting notifications. (Both Dayna and I are still receiving our emails from the Forum Notifications.)

     

    Dayna reset the server and ran maintenance protocols. It appears to be a 'bug in the system' and we're hoping if others have problems a patch will be issued to resolve.

    The posting time issue was resolved by the reset. :D

     

    My only other thought (and this works for me when I have issues with adding content to our gerardbutlergals.com site) is to clear the cache and cookies on your computer.  I have updated the links on 'how to' on the forum post here.

     

    We are sorry for the frustration and will continue to look into resolving it. We appreciate your feedback.

     

    Best,

    Barb

    What does one get for The Man who has everything? How about a Mary's Meals school sponsorship? We're aiming VERY HIGH for GERARD BUTLER'S 50TH BIRTHDAY!! Our goal? To sponsor a Mary's Meal school, for a year, IN GERRY'S NAME. Until 12/31/2019, we hope to raise over $5,000. (If we don't meet this lofty goal, Mary's Meals will use the funds to feed individual children.) We can think of no better way to honor Gerry than to provide for hungry children! So... are ye in? Click through to contribute directly to Mary's Meals:

    https://www.marysmealsusa.org/en/fundraising/project/holly-ghere/happy-50th-gerard-butler-1

    $809.64 raised towards our $5,000.00 target as of 11/21.
    Help us reach our goal! 

    Cheers!

    P.S. Shout out of thanks to Holly/Spot for setting this up :thankyou:

     

  7. Calling all GALS & PALS friends and prayer warriors!

    Our dear Lugerry is having surgery on Wed. 10/30.

    It is a serious surgery and Barbara would appreciate our prayers and good thoughts. She's a firm believer

    in the power of prayer and asks if we would help her get through this. 

     

    She will be in the hospital for 3-4 days. Her cousin Loretta will be keeping her company during her recovery

    (and possibly re-arranging the kitchen cupboards again), so at least Barbara will not be alone.

     

    As soon as she is able, she will let us know how she is fairing.

     

    Thanks to all for your continued support for Barbara.
