Hi Harlan, if you look at the bottom of posts, you see a little hand with string on the index finger...click it, and it will put a link in your reminder box in 'My Home'.
the favorites..I remember seeing this but now it's gone. maybe disabled? anyway, you can use the reminder function as sort of a favorites.
hope that helps
 oh, I just remembered where I saw favorites...when you post a reply, look for the option to save to favorites.
