There is a new Board called Controversial Issues. On this board the admins will place polls with controversial questions that affect the forum. Members can vote on these issues and reach a decision which will then be implemented by the admins. This is your chance for your voice to be heard so use it.
We have a new feature on the forum. If you run across an acronym like DWM, or MOTM, or SFTSS, or PTAD, just hover your cursor over it and a little pop up will spell out the meaning, for example, Dream With Me. Try it on the acronyms in this post. Can you think of any other acronyms and their meanings we should add?
Update: I have added OMBC, WYWSHA, WOWY, WOTW, SOTR, BOTW, TOM, WYWUAS, SSB, and AOTS. Can you think of any others?
We have added a new function on this forum. If you slip and use profanity or obscene language in your post it will automatically be changed to "naughty word." If you get too many naughty word changes you will hear from us so try not to use foul language.
There were only three fan gathering threads in the old Fan Gathering board. At the suggestion of a member these were merged with the existing concert thread in the Concerts Board and "And Fan Gathering" was added to the title. Then the Fan Gathering board was deleted. So now make your fan gathering plans in the appropriate concert thread.
Say you want to go to a specific page on a thread, say page 46. You go to the thread and it says this: 123456..73. How do you get to page 46? Click the two dots. Type in 46 and click okay. You are taken to page 46.

rickolsen: A few hours ago my cats were on my bed. They went into the kitchen. They wanted gravy dinner so I gave them some. I saw I only had 3 cans left so I went to Walmart. They were all sleeping when I left. Brandie woke up when I got back. She is still awake.

rickolsen: My cats just went into the kitchen. They wanted more gravy dinner. I gave them salmon pate extra gravy. They like that kind. I split one can between them. That way they eat it all and it doesn't set there and get crusty.

rickolsen: When I went to Walmart to get gravy dinner for my cats I got some Granny Smith apples for me. I love Granny Smith apples. I have always preferred sour to sweet.

rickolsen: Well, their gravy dinner knocked them out again. Phoenix is sleeping on the couch. Sampson is in on my bed. Brandie is sleeping on my computer. I am watching football. All is well with my world.

rickolsen: I got paid today so I went to Walmart and got my cats their favorite dry food. Walmart didn't have tangerines so I went to Meijer. They had 2 lb bags of tangerines, 2 for $5, so I got 2 bags. I love tangerines. You can only get them this time of year.

rickolsen: These tangerines aren't really tangerines. They were mis-labled. They are really mandarin oranges. I like those too, but I like tangerines better. Some people say they are the same thing, but for me tangerines taste different.

rickolsen: My cats asked me for gravy dinner 45 minutes ago so I gave them some. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping on the couch. Brandie is eating dry dinner on my desk. She will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football. I watch a lot of football 'cause I like it.

rickolsen: Now Brandie is sleeping on my bed so all of my babies are sleeping. I'm watching Super Bowl 46. The Giants beat the Patriots for the second time in a Super Bowl. It's a great game.

rickolsen: I'm going to have bacon and eggs for breakfast. Do you like bacon and eggs? I cook my eggs over easy. I don't eat toast. Today is trash day and I'm going to take out my trash as soon as it gets light out. We don't have much snow so it will be easy.

rickolsen: I told you my car was in the shop. I had both rear brake lines completely replaced. My brakes work good now. I took my car to Muffler Man. They do mufflers, brakes, and shocks. I've been going there for 20 years. They do all my muffler and brake work.
Dec 4, 2019 7:11:26 GMT -5
rickolsen: I enjoyed my breakfast. I like my bacon cooked midway between raw and crispy. It was perfect and I didn't break any eggs. Phoenix licked the yolk off my plate. I leave it for her. I got my trash out so I'm doing well today.
Dec 4, 2019 8:49:31 GMT -5
rickolsen: I didn't hear the trash truck. I was sleeping. I woke up at quarter to 4:00. He must have come on time. I went out and brought my container back up to my house. It was trying to snow a little bit.

rickolsen: I forgot. Muffler Man also does oil changes. They are the cheapest place in town for an oil change and they do a good job. They change my oil too. Both of my rear brake lines were leaking. The pedal went to the floor. Muffler Man came to my rescue.
Dec 4, 2019 17:43:00 GMT -5
rickolsen: Actually, both lines weren't leaking. Duane told me the left line was leaking badly and the right line would be leaking soon so I had him replace both. Duane is an honest man and I trust him. Duane is the manager. I always deal directly with him.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner for breakfast. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on my computer. I'm watching Super Bowl 42 and I'm making bacon and eggs. It's going to be a good day.
Dec 6, 2019 4:55:36 GMT -5
rickolsen: This is unusual. Phoenix and Sampson are both on the back of the couch instead of on the seat. Brandie is on my computer. Sampson is sleeping, but the other two are awake. They will be asking for gravy dinner soon. I will give them some.

rickolsen: My cats just went into the kitchen and asked for gravy dinner. I told you they would. I gave them extra gravy chicken. They really like that kind. They are gobbling it down. Then they will all go to sleep.
Dec 7, 2019 5:25:44 GMT -5
rickolsen: Just like I said all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. Phoenix is on the couch. Sampson is in on my bed and Brandie is on my computer. It's amazing how that gravy dinner knocks them out. It never fails. They always go to sleep right after they eat it.
Dec 7, 2019 5:59:19 GMT -5
rickolsen: Sampson just went into my bedroom so he's on my bed. Phoenix is either on my bed or on my dresser. I keep a blanket on the dresser for her. She was up there earlier this morning. Brandie is on my computer. Phoenix is on my bed with Sampson. I looked.
Dec 7, 2019 12:20:12 GMT -5
rickolsen: There was a cat outside my livingroom window yesterday. Sampson went nuts. He didn't tear down the curtain this time, but he was hissing and clawing the window. I was afraid he would break it. Phoenix was hissing at Sampson. He calmed down eventually.
