Subscribing to Side Roads

We have had two new users ask questions about the email they receive after subscribing to Side Roads. As the administrator of this website I want to clarify any confusion that users may have about the message they receive to their inbox after subscribing so that everyone may more easily understand what the message is saying. I want everyone to have a good experience when they visit Side Roads.

First the email that is sent to users is mandated and processed by WordPress, who is Side Roads host. They want you to become a Word Press member, but this is NOT mandatory to be a Side Roads subscriber. So when they state to “log in to your Word Press account to more easily manage your subscriptions” they are only prompting you to join Word Press itself. You will still receive our updates on every post we make without being a member of Word Press.  You only have to subscribe to Side Roads, which you have done correctly, because you are receiving this email now!

The statement just below the log in sentence says “your subscription has been activated!” This is confirming you have done everything correctly and you do not have to do anything further.

Secondly, the email that is sent after you subscribe explains how to unsubscribe from this site if you wish to do so. Please view the screenshots below of the email that is sent to new users.

Third, if you are a Word Press member you will receive a different email that will give you controls to go straight to your Word Press dashboard to manage subscriptions.This email is different, because you may or may not be subscribed to other Word Press sites. You also may want to start your own webpage, that’s the only reason Word Press members receive a different email once subscribed to Side Roads.

Finally, in summary, remember, you do not have to be a member of Word Press to receive our posts to your inbox only a subscriber of Side Roads which is done at the top, left side of our page. If you are receiving this message, that means you are subscribed and nothing further ever has to be done on your part unless you want to unsubscribe from our post updates.

I want to be here for you, our users always and help answer any questions you may have. We appreciate your membership to The Allegro Club and value you as part of the Tiffin family of owners.



Chapter #181, January Meeting, Pelican Allegros of Louisiana

Chapter:  Chapter #181: Pelican Allegros of Louisiana

Reporter: Lonnie Louviere

Contributor: Dora Wallace/ Side Roads

The Pelican Allegros had their first trip of the New Year to Hollywood Casino, Bay St. Louis, MS January 8th through the 11th. The property description says their RV park “offers tranquil beauty of the outdoors with waterfront views, just steps away from 24-hour gaming excitement, three fabulous restaurants and an Arnold Palmer designed Championship golf course. Rates as low as $35 – voted a top 100 Good Sam RV Park.”

Amenities Include:

  • Deluxe 100-site RV Park with full hooks ups
  • Laundry facilities
  • Cable TV
  • Clubhouse and pavilion
  • Gift shop
  • Free WiFi
  • Pool and Jacuzzi
  • On-site shuttle service
  • 24-hour security

On Thursday evening the Pelican’s enjoyed “a nice warm nest with tarps and heaters under the pavilion to gather together to enjoy the company of friends and fantastic appetizers.” There was a bit of “dreary weather,” but most of the members went out on Friday to “explore the area on (their) own – everything from shopping to flea markets.  Friday evening (they) met at Trapani’s Eatery on the beachfront for some fabulous food.”  They particularly enjoyed the grilled oysters and shrimp scampi.”After the meal some of members went sightseeing and happened to find a Foreigner concert at the Hard Rock Café.  A good time was had by all.

Saturday was met with low temperatures so the group “had a bountiful potluck spread for lunch which included everything from chili and Mexican soup to irresistible brownies and gooey chewies,” then they had a group meeting.

The Pelican Allegros would love for you to join them as a chapter member. Being part of The Tiffin Allegro Club is rewarding in and of itself. Take a look at our benefits page to see what you receive, but being part of a local chapter is the icing on the cake  It allows for fun and fellowship with like minded individuals. With an active group such as The Pelican Allegros, you are certain to have a year full of excitement. Give them a call if you’re a Louisiana resident or if you travel to the state regularly.

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 78,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.
