Hi there.  Just to be a trouble maker, I'm starting this new topic, which can be just as meaningless as Daily Meaningless Banter.  That one is beginning to look like "Shh.." on the old forum, which went on forever.  When that happens, I lose interest, so maybe with a new topic we can start  a new never-ending thread.  Variety is the spice of life, so they say (whoever "they" is).  If nobody jumps in, then maybe I'll just go away.

I think with that one having nearly reached its half-century, retirement would be sensible.

They do get unwieldy with size, after all, which begs the question, is there a limit on thread size?

Interesting way to begin a thread. This is usually discussed after many messages have been sent. Tongue

I just wonder if anyone will disagree with you Dave?  Big smile

Well, what's wrong with being a little different?

BTW, I wish you would take some of this cold weather back up north.  Actually, they say it's going to get up in the 30s tomorrow, but a storm is due in Christmas afternoon with rain, sleet and freezing rain.  Glad we're staying home for Christmas, and the day after going so far as across the street to our son's.

Dave

I wish I could take some of your cold weather. We have had rain for the past 2 days.
Actually I am the equivalent of only 350 km north of you ( roughly equal to Ottawa) but have the Gulf stream keeping us warmer.

While I always have a little trouble with km vs mi, I guess you aren't as far north of me as I thought you were.  I guess I really should study my geography a little better.

Dave  .. as the Moderator for F & F, I am more interested in the pace than the quantity and also the quality. While I have the option to truncate topics, I have seen no reaon for it.
 
The problem with starting a new thread results IMHO in confusion and clutter. If there is no serious difference, then this thread would be deemed superfluous.
 
When Gord assigned a name to the main thread, I let it be. My feeling was that by name itself, a thread would not matte. When Roger asked me what threads I would like to see carried over, Ssssshhhh was the only one of importance. I even passed on Dan Marra's classic about goat cheese.
 
There has to be a reason why F & F attracts the most posts!

Ok, Melford, I guess.  I was going to congratulate you for migrating over here; but I see you came just to chastise me.  That's alright.  You're forgiven, and I see you didn't actually close this thread down -- yet.  Let's just see what happens.  At least I've got one person, Terry, on my side.  You will also note that I have continued to occasionally post in the other thread, too.

Anyway, it is, after all Friends and Fun, so let's just keep it that way.  Have fun in the new year.
