    It's 34 degrees in grey and dreary Annapolis today. High of 42. Got a little bit of shopping to do today, but hope to get presents all wrapped today, too.

    Have a great day, everyone. That includes you, Jim! :D

    *sigh*

    I'm sorry.  While I may consider this thread an enormous and expensive waste of bandwidth, I have had it made clear to me that knowing the morning temperature in other people's home towns without having to turn on the TV to find that information is an important and crucial  bit of community-building infrastructure.

    I don't understand it.  But I accept that that's the way things are.

    I apologize for my feeble and flagrant attempts to destroy this thread for the sake of a----......keasp89r321jo

    At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up.
    After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.

    BJ, perhaps you connect with people throughout your day in other ways.  For myself, 80 percent of my work life is spent at home.  When I do go out, I spend a very limited amount of time with people.  I don't live near family.  My friends all have day, out of the house, jobs.  This forum is a way for me to connect on some level with the same people every morning.

    I work in retail, so 80% of my day is spent passing inane superficial pointless boring idiotic conversation with people I can't wait to get rid of.

    I come online to escape that.

    But I can see your motivation, and accept it.  It's not my cup of tea, but then, I almost never drink tea. ;)

    Yeah, I know.

    But then I did, out of boredom.

    My bad.  And it won't happen again.  :-[

    That explains a lot of your attitude.  I apologize profusely for all the consumers who are rude and obnixous.  They only need to work in your shoes one day to change their attitude.

    Here's a hint, shoppers:  Don't go up to your clerk while on your cell phone and then be outraged that he/she isn't friendly-talkative-effusive.

    Im so glad I never had to work in retail. My first job was as a draftsman for a manufacturing company and I stuck with that type of company for the rest of my employment life, holding several different positions. The only part of it I didnt like was being a departmental supervisor.

    GM all. Its 72 and cloudy in Shreveport.

    Late last night my SIL and my nephew showed up at our door. My nephew just got done with army boot camp and is on his christmas break before he is assigned. Right now he is busy studying for his tests to get into airborne.

    This was a kid with no ambition. He played games and was chunky. The kid that showed up at me door last night was not the same kid! We honestly didn't think he would get through boot camp. Boy did he surprise us! He wants to be a lifer.

    Where in Central Texas? (I promise not to drop in for a visit or brag about my son's custom made guitars.)

    Not that I know of. I offered to build him one on my server but he wasn't interested. He posts on some guitar forums, I think. If you're really interested, I can send him an email. I actually stuck that guitar building reference into the post with Mike because I thought he might know my son.

    I have two guitar playing sons, a guitar playing father (he played on the country circuit for years when i was younger), guitar playing uncles, cousins, ex-husband.  I play the radio, in case you're wondering.  But anyway, I'm always looking for something unique for them.

    Good morning, all,

      It's 14 degrees in Bellingham, windy, and we're stay inside.

      And, I'm thankful for this haven of civility on the Internet.
