This site will only stress you out if you allow it to do so Cutie. Just post what you have to say and move on.
We never chatted, but, you were one of the very few few that I read when you made a post. I thought your posts were funny and found myself laughing when I read them.
Good Luck to you and take care,

Good luck to you.
Ditto! Mandalay, I think you are awesome and I will miss reading your posts. Have fun on your trip!
Mandalay207 write: Well, looks like I've joined the ranks of a forum poster being "censored" and my posts are not showing up automatically, even as a preferred member. So, you will read this on 3/22/06 instead of when I am posting it.
Well, for many reasons I'm outta here. Off the site and off the forums. As of 4:00 p.m. today (3/21/06), I am off on a golf vacation and when I come back I will be packing and moving from Ohio to South Carolina as I have accepted a temporary 6-month (hopefully longer) transfer beginning April 3rd. My membership on this site is up on the 6th and I will no longer be posting on these forums or needing this site in any manner.
That being said, try and find some humor and get back to what your audience wants to read. Your audience just doesn't consist of the 10-12 regulars who post, but those individuals who read but don't post. There's no greater feeling than receiving an email telling you that you made someone laugh their AZZ off! Remember, laughter is truly the best medicine! THEY HATE THE DRAMA!! Fortunately for myself, I've found a site where the humor never ends, the writers are fabulous and there is NO censorship whatsoever!!
Take care everyone and good luck with all your endeavors.
Good luck to you Mandy. I know what you mean about the forums. They definitely take on a life of their own. There is an ebb and flow to them. All it takes is a couple of new posters with some creative new threads and the forums can be up and running in a flash. I find them to be a bit boring myself lately. When that happens I tend not to post much. When they become fun again I post more. Who knows if it's the fault of the forums at all. It could just be my own personal attitude and frame of mind at any given time.
Well Mandalay, Ive never had the pleasure of 'tilting' with you on these now infamous portals , but wish you all the best in your new life. Ive only recently arrived to start a new life to, but have found that my very British sense of humour does help me immensely in making new friends wherever i go. Yes humour and laughter can be a wonderful tonic, turning a bad day into one that you remember for the great laugh you had. Friendship, wit,humour and laughter are all free, no cost to give no cost to receive, its a great shame more people dont realise this, this wonderful world of ours would be such a better place to live.
Laughter crosses boarders, cultures, religions and genders. What is the one common thing in this world we all do and understand, beside cry, yes we all can laugh.
Some people on this forum might think this Brit is like a woodpecker with no beak.......... a real Head Banger, but i stand up for right against wrong, and set out to laugh my way thro' the day.
Here endith the Lesson
