Hey Amanda,

Thank you SO MUCH for all the help figuring out this issue!! Everything should be working now (bit of a coding issue, it's been corrected) but let us know if anything still looks off.

And don't forget to let the Facebook Chasers know, too! Sharing is caring!! :)

Thanks again,

Hey Amanda,

Saw your post on the Feedback tab.. did the problem start after a computer or browser update? is designed to look best in Mozilla Firefox so if at all possible, we recommend using that browser when viewing the site. If you choose to use a different browser and the site looks as if it is loading a bit odd, try using the “compatibility view” option for that browser when viewing

Thanks, hope this helps!

Tidings is a great album! Currently listening to "Baby, It's Cold Outside." ^_^

Hi Amanda! Thanks for posting on the map! It's exciting to me to see this idea of mine fill up with all the Chasers!

I see you and I share a love of Celtic music and electronica/new age-y music (i.e., Cirque du Soleil)! It's amazing how a group like SNC can bring together so many like-minded people!

The two songs were "Never Over" and "Show my How to Live Without You".

"Never Over" was written during the time that Denis was still alive. "Show Me How to Live Without You" was written after Denis had passed.

Hey Amanda! I'm in Los Alamos. Where are you?

Are you friends with the guys on FB? If not, that could be why you are not able to view the picture Kristin posted in the love thread.

Tic Tac Lady's picture

Hi Amanda! Only by a few minutes!! I wasn't sure where to post it. It looked really suspicious when there were listings on ALL the profiles!

I actually came on just to put something else on another discussion. Isn't this just the coolest website? I love all the comments people make!

Terry_4's picture

I kind of liked that picture of Ryan myself. Love the little scruffy on him!

Amanda_5's picture

Kristin and S: LOL! As for being able to say it five times fast, probably not! I wonder what Seggie would think about this idea?

S. Brandon's picture

But can you say it five times fast? ;-)

KristinC's picture

Should a Seggie Snuggie be called a "Sneggie?"

KristinC's picture

Seggie Snuggie - ROTFLMAO!!!

Lynnette Holle's picture

Hi Amanda, Would you friend me too on Facebook? I looked and could not find your picture. I'm listed the same as here: Lynnette Holle. Thanks

KristinC's picture

Still can't find you! Add me: Kristin Messick Crowder!

Amanda_5's picture

It's the same as this one. I probably should have clarified that!

KristinC's picture

There are a lot of Amanda Roses on FB. What does your profile pic look like so I can add you?

Amanda_5's picture

I can see the security/customs officer's reaction now. "Ma'am, what do you have in your suitcase?" "Um, well, uh...." LOL

If you ever go to Ireland, please tell me so I can pack myself in your luggage. Then we'll go scope out S.'s (Esses?) castle.

S. Brandon's picture

My ancestors built and ruled Blarney Castle. (Really.) Do you think you could get me a copy of the deed? ;-)

Marcaich's picture

Hi Amanda! Nice meeting you :-) Glad you are enjoying the videos and the thshirt and #blameCarla antics! I recognize your youtube moniker as well :-) Yes, you got it right, its Irish Gaelic for Horseman or rider, good job! Someday I hope to go to Ireland and ride through the countryside. Hope to see you re around!

KristinC's picture

I just cruised your profile - so cool that you're doing Irish Studies! My goal is to get to Ireland someday, but it won't happen until my husband is out of school. Can you speak any Gaelic?

Tic Tac Lady's picture

Hi Amanda! Thanks for the "Tyler arrangement info"! I didn't know that he arranged those..and I LOVE his version of "I'll Be Home for Christmas (and I know he sings lead in it). Not so familiar w/ Chicken Fried, although they sang it at the Indy concert! Need to go listen to IBHFC right now! ^ ~ ^

Thanks! :-)
