Re: Long time, no see . . .

I'm still breathing, I think. I should be at any rate...but is anyone else breathing? The air is curiously bereft of belched beer fumes...

In all honesty, SYM simply happened. It was organic and spontaneous, unplanned and unintended. Perhaps it ran its course...who can say for certain? It's still here, but as it was pointed out by others a few pages ago, internet forums were "the thing" back in SYM's heyday. We're all older now (and li...

I started a turkey farm, sell cheap perfume and imitation rolex watches on street corners, and captured time in a bottle. Despite this, I still find I never have enough time. ;)

I usually prefer more savoury breakfasts, but when it comes to the sweeter concoctions... in my view absolutely nothing beats crêpes.. served the traditional way.. butter, sugar, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Not too heavy like pancakes, no worries about consistency as with waffles.. just simpl...

I am not in the business of back-patting; however, in essence I feel fable has done an admirable job in hammering out the reality of the situation as it faces us. ...the collapse of necessary community services due to a lack of tax monies to run them in Colorado Springs, and the issues this raises. ...

It's about as easy for Google to claim a moral stance now over censorship in China as it would be for a hooker to claim they were too pure to perform after making their first million. The time for Google to take the high road was when the Chinese government told them: censor or you don't get in. Th...

And here you thought swampland sellers were the bottom-feeders of the real estate business. Guess again.

It's 54 degrees F/12 Celcius here in my neck of the woods. Chilly for the Southern California natives, but no big deal for me. Skies are clear. Pretty evening out there.

I was curious. How do you keep track of them all? I was thinking perhaps an abacus, but then I thought otherwise. It would have to be the size of a 2 bedroom home in an Atlanta suburb! :speech:
