    That was a real indication that few even pass by now.

    As for me, HT is the Internet highlight of my day. The folks here, with a few rare exceptions, are friendly, courteous, helpful... unlike most of the other Internet boards I frequent, which are usually filled with disdain, rudeness and one-upmanship.

    Yeah. It's the Summer Solstice tied to a Supermoon, a combination that comes around only every 52,560 years or so, known to the ancients as a Solsumoon. Any wrongs not regretted and abetted come back to you fifty fold.

    You have until midnight at the International Date Line.

    And this is the brightest moon of the year! In San Diego who could ever tell, its the usual evening fog. Its bright fog. Reminds me of the Bicentennial when a huge fireworks show got shot off in the SF Bay area, exploding invisibly within all enshrouding fog, but the booms must have been magnificent.

    You are clearly frequenting many boards for which you are not suited - time for a change. Might I suggest StraightBourbon.com?
    May I always be found beneath your contempt.

    I'm still here and I chose not to participate in that thread. Perhaps I'm not alone. 'Nuff said.

    Don't be suprised if you see the HT cryptic police cruise slowly by!
    Why would anybody avoid posting for one of the better subscribers here in his passing, and do so in brigades?

    Sorry, but that's the TMZ in me. When they show a celebrity funeral on tv, they announce who attended. Then, you wonder why another celebrity who had a relationship with the deceased didn't attend. We do the same gossip thing after a funeral of a relative on who wasn't at the funeral.

    Matapule is an elder, even to me...but not by much.
    As to your other question, Ron...no comment. For now.

    FTR, I was asking in generalities, not directly asking TS the question that prompted such a misguided tirade of defense from the bleachers.

    I can't speak for TS, but I remember one particular thread where LN discussed his health issues in this forum. Some well-meaning suggestions and encouragement was given, urging LN to make certain changes in his diet and lifestyle. That he rejected the advice,.... well, that was obviously his choice. But what may have hit a raw nerve with some folks was the manner in which he did it. He responded to the advice in a taunting fashion, thumbing his nose at the very people who truly cared about him and didn't want to see him go down the path he was headed towards. Admittedly, a couple of posters didn't pull punches with him about his being in denial. But that's what "tough love" is all about, isn't it?
    This post may contain an opinion that may conflict with your opinion. Do not take it personal. Polite discussion of difference of opinion is welcome.

    I missed all that somehow, FM, and dispite all our fighting I'm glad you're back and not dead, as had been suspected. The battle rages on!
    I can appreciate his denials, if that's what it was, staring death in the face sucks and we deal with it variously, plus we don't usually recognize the depths our non-actions can equal until it's too late. Life is tricky.

    I've never had real differences with the person in question, but there are reasons. Surely you could imagine some of them. I am not saying any of these reasons is why I am keeping my mouth respectfully shut, but come on. Don't be calling people out on it.

    RE: Are we pau with HT? No, but we can work on improvements, such as keeping it pleasant about each other. I propose we try to keep HT on a positive note, and before anyone heads in the wrong direction, practice the adage "Don't speak ill of the dead".

    Just saying.

    Peaceful thoughts to all.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    Nope, maybe my imagination ain't what it used to be. I never read anything but decentness from him, yet he seems to be almost reviled.
    Again, I didn't call out anyone in particular, it was an overall curious observation as to why most everybody ignored the moment which seemed rather odd.

    "New/Latest" (last 24 hours) posts = zero.
    Last new member= registered Aug.9 (two weeks ago), no posting, never signed on again.

    Has the time arrived?

    nah. It's just cycles. Busy time, school starting, lousy economy, job searches, etc., etc.

    We will have times again where the "New" selection fills two pages on your screen.

    BTW, I learned (I think either Helen or Leo told me - I forget) to always select "New" rather than "Latest", cause if you hit "Latest" and you are past that 24 hours you can miss entire threads. You can always hit "Latest" later to see if there's anything else there.
