WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
The board will be opened shortly! (Edited on May 07; Board now OPEN!) This board was a labor of love and show of support to a Diva who has provided entertainment to me since childhood and to others for more than 40 years. It is a tribute to Robin Strasser and her work. I hope that me and my collaborative partner, RSRocks, aka Christy, do her justice by showcasing her work and providing a forum for her fans. Viva la Diva!Edited by Cheryl on 5.13.06 to note that guests are permitted to READ ONLY. The exception was the window before and slightly after Robin's birthday to allow for birthday greetings.Read further if you want to find out more details about the board; or, just skip this section and see for yourself!TOP of the BOARD:

is my personal favorite forum. I enjoy writing so you will find stories and other creative writings here. I have invited other writers to this section so you will soon see various stories from others besides me. If you would like to post a story here, just add to the thread in the "Oh the Drama!"
subforum with the Cramer Women banner. Again, no profanity filter but don't get carried away.

Just has information about who's visiting the board; also featured are birthday announcements, special note of upcoming events on the board calendar and lastly board stats. NEWS BOX
Had to put the latest Robin news some place eye-catching! Does it look OK? I could not make up my mind about this box! I didn't want the top of the board to get too visually cluttered so I put the news box at the bottom of the page. If you'd like, you can scroll there first to find out what's happening. Also, there are sections that point to the "Feature of the Month" and the "Site of the Month." Finally, clicking on a scrolling banner at the bottom of the page will take you to the site indicated on the icon.PRIVATE CHAT ROOM
