  3. The past year was the hardest in ages, but now I'm starting to see the light again. Missed this place and my dear friends.

  4. Off to see the new Terminator.

  5. I hope everyone can say they had a great 2018!!  I sure did!  And one of the great things of 2018 was meeting this group,  this family of people brought together by something we love and support!  I hope to hear that 2019 will be even greater than the past!

      Belated Happy New Year! (I now refer to January as Wanuary, after being asked by dentist's receptionist when would I like my next appointment. 💉 True Story.)

  6. Autumn/Fall. The beginning or the end?

      😆 I like the sound of 'the Fall'! I also like 'Autumnal'. I'm just a hard man to please!

      Hi, sorry about that. 503 errors are often quite hard to source. It's possible you were posting when I applied a server upgrade  yesterday evening after a CPanel security update. I remember you were the only member logged in at the time but it said last action was 15 mins ago, so I took a risk and applied the patch, rebooted the server.

      I can check the logs for further clues, feel free to PM me with which time zone are you where it says 9.34pm? Could you confirm the date it happened or are still seeing it?

      Many thanks!

  11. The time is near, being made redundant after almost 22 years service on Fri 29th Sept. Scary!

      Thank you Libby, very kind words. Everything's fairly surreal at the moment!

      Thanks Libby, here too! We don't have anything as exciting as on Winterwatch, but we have occasional Robins, mostly Blue Tits, Great Tits, Starlings, Wood Pigeons and Magpies visiting the garden.

  14. Sorry I keep  disappearing.  It's the infection, the pain, the nausea, the aggravation.   I forget there are places like this to come and forget all that.  also I have a bit of trouble typing with my right hand.  Left is fine.  Right is a bit of an effort.  They think it's nerve damage... It's minor.   If it gets worse I need to  definitely have them run tests. So typing long posts isn't my thing at the moment. It's like trying to type with  a really cold hand, but it's not cold.

    I've missed Lance in all his guest roles. Must catch up!   I still like MIllennium.  As dark as the show was/is?  I return to it, for  a glimpse of the world before the world  came  to a screeching halt and then went crazy. ( 9/11 and everything after).... I'm glad it's there for me, and for all of us.  It had really dark subjects... but .. could not have been nearly as dark and chaotic as the world seems now. Where is the millennium group when the world needs it?  The good group, not the bad one! LOL

     

    Hang in there everyone.  None of us gets out of this alive.  Try and enjoy the moments you can until  the next chapter!

  15. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!  I hope it's  been the best ever!!!!

    :lets-party-smiley-emoticon::party-hat-smiley-emoticon:

  16. There is only one thing on my mind. How do I shake off this  headache and get work around here done?  It dawned on me that when I turned off the a/c for cooler weather, THAT might have been when the headache started. It's a sinus migraine as I call them.   It's been about 4 days now.   Dull to moderate pain, enough to ruin my  ambition.   So I turned my a/c unit on here in the back, and will do so in the front if the  temps warrant it.  Meanwhile I  need to adjust to  "fall"  I guess.   It's that time of year.  My favorite time, but also a time when  I can and sometimes do get  week long headaches. Then it's not my favorite time of year!  

     

    This is neato.  I think it's a new feature???  Not sure because I'm clueless?  I will say when I put my cursor on smilies it says code. When I put my  cursor on the  sprocket it says link. When I put my cursor on the link it says emoticons.   It's  off a bit.   I did the control f5  refresh again.  Still off a bit.

      Hi buddy, hope you feel better soon! May be tiredness or stress?

      Thats definitely a result of a mix of old images images showing for the tool bar buttons instead of the new ones. A hard refresh will fix it, but you may have to have editor open when you do it.

      Its a side effect of the way browsers coach content these days I'm afraid to speed up page loading times. Once you've done it, you should be good!

  17. In two weeks the trial of the Aurora Colorado theater mass murderer is scheduled to begin. It is expected to last 4-5 months including sentencing.

      Mines double Pepperoni and mushrooms. I'll bring the beer!

  20. One year ago on this night, and in this very hour, in a darken theater in Aurora, Colorado, evil would enter and for 12 movie goers, there would be no dawn. For their families, a long night began for which dawn would be a long way off. Many a score would be injured and for them and their families, a nightmare that would be slow in ending, if ever

      Excellent sentiment.

  21. Been a member for 10 years now. Starting series rewatch. Can't believe how far this site has come for a show that no one "allegedly" watched. Bravo TIWWA.

      Thanks Toymall! :)

  22. Dearest friend , it is with incredible sadness that I post the loss of my youngest nephew John T. Larimer USN. He was a victim of the Aurora Colorado movie theater tragedy. John was only 27 with an incredible life waiting for him. He will be remembered by a large close family and countless friends. John had incredible mind, a rapier wit, and quiet gentleness that will be greatly missed by all who knew him. RIP.
