[JR: Only remotely linked to Jaspers. Call it “editorial license”. Maybe a Jasper can meet a future spouse? I depended upon the “old nana’s network” (i.e., a loose consortium of Irish / Italian / Jewish /Puerto Rican grandmothers who’d say “he’s / she’s a nice boy”. And they’d make a Shidduch! (Unfortunately, I don’t know the Irish / Italian word for it. My English grandmother used the word. So as far as I’m concerned it’s the “queen’s english”)]

ADMINISTRIVIA: LEGACY information may be gone

2017-May-12

LEGACY has changed their UI. I’ve questioned them about it.

*** begin quote ***

What happened to the keyword search? I used to — yesterday — be able to search for obits with “manhattan college” as keyword. Now that capability is gone?

*** end quote ***

This will put a crimp in my data gathering.

Hello Ferdinand,

Thank you for contacting Legacy.com.
We sincerely appreciate your feedback.  Our apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the new search view.   Please be assured we are recording your comments, and they will be very helpful as we continue to upgrade the site. 

Regarding the “search by keyword” feature: we understand this is a popular way to search the obituaries, and will be including it in a future version of our site.  In the meantime, you can continue to search by keyword using the link below:

Thanks again for taking the time to send us your thoughts. If there is anything else we can help you find at the moment, please let us know.

Kind regards,

Linda

ADMINISTRIVIA: Jasper Jottings is back on the free version of MAILCHIP …

2017-Apr-30

Jasper Jottings is back on the free version of MAILCHIP …

… that makes it easier for you to control your own subscriptions.

On a negative note, the number of subscribers keeps falling.

I know you can read it online directly, but consider getting an email copy so I can have some idea if this is worth the effort.

Go Jaspers!

ADMINISTRIVIA: Anyone care to help?

Each week I find a lot of “invisible” Jaspers that I’d like to include in the weekly Jottings.

Unfortunately, as a poor old senior citizen on a fixed income, I’m not about to buy a “recruiter” level on LinkedIn for an effort that costs me money already.

Any Jasper “recruiters” out there who’d like to take on this thankless task?

ADMINISTRIVIA: Pictures not in the email distribution

2017-Jan-01

For some reason, the pictures weren’t included in the email distribution. Also, link on FACEBOOK didn’t pick them up either. 

Went back and readded them to the HTML page. Now Facebook picked it up. And it shows on the web page.

You can see the pictures at the above links.

— and I’ll do better next week, but remember “you get what you pay for”. Laugh!

ADMINISTRIVIA: Remember Stella D’Oro? by O’Hagan, Betsy [MC1987]

2016-Dec-01

FROM FACEBOOK

This is a public service announcement – especially to all Riverdalians. Remember how growing up when Stella D’Oro was making breakfast treats the entire neighborhood smelled like almond? Then they were sold to Nabisco and the smell was gone and the cookie was never really the same. Now they’ve been sold again and the result is CRAP. I bought Swiss Fudge Cookies to bring somewhere today and when they were opened they were dry, chalky and basically horrible. IS NOTHING SACRED???? :(

[JR: While not by a Jasper, I read this and remembered. Thought my fellow Jaspers would get a laff out of it. I remember the Mounties that used to hand with “us” would swear that the scent add to their waistline and their cyclic depression. Laugh! I think I can still remember the scent of those cookies. Argh! Now I just added to my circumference. Sorry for the aside, but I connect Stella D’Oro with Alma Mater.]

Dear John,

            I believe that Betsy is a member of the Class of 1987.

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated.]
