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: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. They are gobbling it down. I have to go to Walmart soon and get them some more. Maybe I'll do it today. I can't run out. They like it too much. I don't want to disappoint them.

rickolsen: I got my cats more gravy dinner. I got more roast beef and pastrami for me and a loaf of bread. My diet is working well. I've lost about 45lbs. in the last year. My doctor says whatever I'm doing is working. I just cut out starch like potatoes.

rickolsen: I'm eating no bake cookies while I watch Super Bowl 42. There is no better taste combination than dark chocolate, oatmeal, and peanut butter. I really feel good today. No more dizzyness. I didn't look drunk walking into Walmart. I hate that.

rickolsen: Gas was only $1.87 today so I filled up my tank. Cost $7.75. I don't know why gas prices have dropped so much, but I won't complain. You have to get a break once in a while in life.

rickolsen: I just went to Walmart and got some cucumbers and green peppers. I think eating these things helps my diet. They are tasty and they have low calories. I'm eating green peppers now. I put salt on them. Salt makes everything taste better.

rickolsen: Phoenix is sleeping. Brandie and Sampson aren't sleeping yet. I took a long nap so I'll be up all night. I'm watching the 2007 divisional game between the Giants and the Cowboys. I might make a roast beef sandwich later. I'm not really hungry now.
Sept 8, 2020 22:13:11 GMT -5
rickolsen: Sampson is sleeping now. So is Brandie. I hate it when I know I should eat something and I'm just not hungry. I can't force myself to eat when I'm not hungry. Can you?

rickolsen: I ate a pastrami sandwich. I've never gotten pastrami and roast beef before last time, but I really like them. I'm a meat and potatoes man. I don't eat potatoes anymore because of starch, so I'm just a meat man. I could never be a vegetarian or a vegan.

rickolsen: I'm eating chips and salsa while I watch the divisional playoffs between the 2011 Giants vs Packers. The Giants win. I really like salsa.

rickolsen: I have to shut my window at night now. I don't want my furnace to kick on. My cats and I like to be warm though.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. It is seafood and they are gobbling it down. I feel really good today. I haven't felt dizzy for 2 days. I just ate 2 bowls of potato soup. I don't eat potatoes very often, but I like potato soup.

rickolsen: I just opened my livingroom window. Sampson is already in it. I have to close it at night now, but I open it during the day. My furnace hasn't kicked on yet. I don't want it to. I have covers at night now. Phoenix always sleeps with me. She likes covers.

rickolsen: After I gave my cats some gravy dinner they all went to sleep. They are sleeping now. I'm eating green peppers while I watch football. I really like green peppers. I put a little salt on them. Earlier I said salt makes everything taste better. It doesn't.

rickolsen: You wouldn't put salt on your chocolate pudding or chocolate cake. But salt does make most regular food like meat and veggies taste better.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. Phoenix and Brandie are sleeping, but Sampson isn't. I just went to Walmart and got some more sandwich meat, roast beef and pastrami. I like to eat it without bread. I'm not supposed to eat bread.
