In case you didn't know Colleen POE premier membership adds a gold star to our avatar name and having helped Neil with a POE/Neisha Meditation project previously I am concerned to see that he hasn't renewed and hope it's not because of health reasons for example.
Go back and read the posts here Colleen. See how involved Neil was and how much good work he has done for a lot of people, so my concern is for a fellow member that's all, a fellow member who became a good friend. Neil hasn't answered my emails either so like I said, I hope things are okay over there.
On the POE Premier Membership thing, we all get reminders from POE when premier membership renewal is due, but it's not mandatory and so the final decision is that of he/she who uses the site and who wishes to support what owners Chris and Sarah do to provide the best England site on the net bar none.
