***  Dear Friends  ***

 

I will be the first to admit, that I feel somewhat crazy for having resurfaced and blogging again.  A few years ago, I had deleted all my previous topics except the last one on Wine Questions, which is still up and running.

 

Now it feels like I am back in a ' Toxic Relationship ' on the one hand, while being part of an Extended Family, on the other hand.

 

Why ' Toxic ', you may question ?.

 

Answer ... I have a problem regarding those who literally 'Hog' the first page with copy and paste Plagiarism, then see fit to block any of us with an I.Q. above room temperature.  Just one example.

 

Now it is your turn.  What are some of your Peeves ?.

 

Do not be shy, let it all hang out.  After all, this is therapy to restore The Boards to a dignified place, minus the  insanities.

Remember, we are all in this together.  Please Help, while I lay on the proverbial couch.

 

Sincere Thanks to one and all Bloggers,

There was a time on this topic,  when you kept calling me " Sealion ".

 

And when I thanked you for the new pseudonym,  you did not realize it was for  " Sealion ".

 

Now I am beginning to wonder if you were dining with the drunken lawyer,  at the time ?

I'm waiting patiently to try that special recipe.

Does Maryclaire dine with drunken lawyers?  I think I have to pay more or better attention.  I have been missing some things.

Nice to see You, and to know that,  you're here reading the boards.

 

Yes, I agree with Maggie and you, regarding the magnetic fade of recent times.  If it is any consolation though, the selfies that dominated the front page, have all but disappeared.  Perhaps someone took care of the ' app ' which was most likely responsible for it.

 

The latest trend appears to be ' one time posters ', who make a comment, then disappear.  I believe the culprit may very well be smart phones again.

 

The good news is, smart phone use is on the decline, and desk-top computers are making a comeback.  This is an indicator of more writing ahead, as it is much easier to do so with a regular keyboard, than a tiny phone device.

 

That's my New Year report, from ' The Eternal Optimist '.

Dear ETERNAL OPTIMIST ,

 

Thank you for the fair report. You said it well and I have 

nothing to add more..I have no idea if the pull , the drive or the 

Kick will ever come again because many good bloggers 

and nice people are gone .. 

 

Yours Truly ,

Mary

Hi Ken,

 

Some of us pop in from time to time but the 'pull' just isn't here anymore. Too many scammers and self absorbed people looking for a free ride for my taste. I still keep in touch with the people who I consider friends, but the blogs have long lost their appeal for me. Besides, my next (and probably last) goal is taking most of my time. Think I found the perfect place to make it happen. I'll email you the details this morning. Love to get your opinion and input.

 

Hoping is really busy. I need to call her this morning to wish her a Merry Christmas.

Hi Maggie,

 

What a Great Holiday Treat, to have heard from you.   Thanks also, for all the thoughtful cards and mails.

 

Well, the blogs appear to be going through another one of its ' cycles ' , kinda reminds me of the monthly thing, albeit much longer than that.

 

The latest being, the many new comments on the boards, from first time posters.   Let's hope some may continue, instead of their single comment and disappearance.

 

Keep in touch.

oh yes Silver, and might i add to this all those pics of hoggers that are down right custy looking

**  blondee007  **

 

What a pleasant surprise to hear from you.  I know you go back about a decade on The Boards, and that Hamster photo is still amazing. 

 

It's not a custom photo from one of these new ' apps ', for it was posted prior to their debut. 

Do you think ' crazy glue ' had any role in it ?.

 

Yes, I agree with you on those hogger pictures, although some are entertaining, though.

 

Welcome Back, and We Hope to See more of you.

Good evening!

 

If someone doesn't start another thoughtful blog soon think I'll need a shrink!!!  Seriously...I don't care if you're bored, have a new make-up regime or question if any good men/women are out there.  Sorry..but I rather enjoy a bit of fun.

 

Remain blessed.

Hi Sharon,

 

It appears like the ' selfie boom ' is finally winding down.   The smart phones have also had their ' glory days ', as the solid desktop computers are in demand once more.

 

Not surprising, as things usually go in circles, or up and down .... ' The Ivory Tower '.

 

We just have to get back some of our nutty old friends who have an honest sense of humor.  So whip out that dusty lasso, and haul 'em in, while I think up of something special for you,  ' The Globetrotter '.

 

Puff, Puff,

Ken.

Sealions are typically found more in warmer coastal regions, so you may have to do a little traveling, or check with the zoo near you.  If you come to Paris, I will pretend to be one !

 

The Picollos do benefit from age, much more rapidly than any standard size bottles.  The next time you shop, get six of them and taste one every two months.  Make notes, and you will find the ideal one during the course of the year.  That will indicate their best age potential.

 

Now where is that recipe you promised ?

Hi SL ,

 

Thanks for the offer as a Sea Lion ..I might take the offer and 

for sure it will be fun ...Lol

 

Thank you again for the good advice about the Piccolo ..Sure I

will try it ..but my friends will be surprise to see the 6 bottles ...

 

 

BTW , another proof that we can cook Red Wine without evaporating .. Have you heard about the " German GLUEHWEIN " meaning " HOT WEIN " ..now its the time to drink

it ..I was in the Christmas Market today and the whole place

was smelling of it but I was not tempted to buy one because its not really my thing ..nevertheless I can make one too at home ..

 

Sorry , lets forget 1st the Recipe  ...

Hi SL ,

 

Thanks for your kindness ..well Sealion is one of the beautiful 

sea creature and Im wishing to see one as well as Pinguine ..Shark I got the chance to see some of them in the Sultanate of Oman and even babys ..happened to be in the hook of my late hubby but he put it back ..

 

Yes ..you are right with the Piccolo ..I took what is left as a toast for the New Year and purchased a new bottle..I was surprised that it tastes better after a year in the fridge ..

 

The recipe is coming your way ...

Good evening!

 

I think blogging (amongst the maturer crowd) is therapy.  I bypass all the taglines from the newer crowd and head straight for blogger names I recognize.  What ever happened to the other silverhaired gentlemen (King of the one liners)  He would get you going...then someone would block him.  Oh well...my peeve are those bloggers looking for instant (look at me) gratification.  Then...whenn we don't notice how much of a "catch" they are in 10 minutes...leave the site in a "huff".  However, never before letting us know that they are leaving and why.

 

Just staying...Rome (one of my favorite places in the world) wasn't built in a day.  Neither are blog communities. 

 

Remain blessed.

 

Dolce



**  Dolcedileche  **

 

I could not agree more with you, and your assessment of blogging communities.  That is so true, coming from your experiences.

 

Perhaps the other ' silverhaired gentleman ' / King of the one liners, that you are missing, is " roc ", who was with our community for quite a long while.

If so, my understanding is that a new blogger who was not familiar with roc's modus operandi, got into a conflict together, causing roc to get booted.

 

Always great to see you, and , A Big And,... I've just noticed that Princess Hoping is making one of her drivebys !

I gotta run and catch her, before She gets into some kind of do-do again.

Oh No !, ...  You did Not offend me one bit.  In fact, I had Thanked you for the new pseudo of " Sealion ".

 

I assume the ' Piccolo ', that you mention for the dish, is a quarter of a bottle of white wine.  Is that correct ?.

 

Where is the recipe, may I ask ?.  Hope it's not some secret from the pre-mad-evil times, that includes hunting down some beast of burden.
