Here’s an open thread to play with.

    There are 3 persons that check this thing regularly, you, me and Azy. The rest remain AWOL :em05:

    BTW you had a DOS attack on the bark yesterday, 404 error – not found. Have not looked at it today.

    I am not there, I’m here. I’ll shall remain here for the duration.
    From here, I hear, there is occasionally something to hear there.
    So I see if anyone’s there.
    They’re there or they’re not there.
    But, I’m not.
    Here’s the rub; there is a there, that you’re aware, that I can never be there.

    I am the walrus said the mock turtle. BTW, wife unit and I just got back from the Evil Czech Brewery in South Bend, IN. Excellent stout and some nibbles.

    Which was the reason for posting this. Maybe someone can wake up the usual suspects here instead of relying on me to post stupid shit here?

    Maybe I should post a silly meme every day until one of the regular Management people comes back around here.

    I also check this blog fairly often.

    Sorry, nothing to say about beer.

    I am here and post as often as I can Allyn. Right now I kinda have my hands full. I have tried to reach the Emperor twice.

    I’ll do what I can in a day or so.

    I’m here. I’ve been here. Problem is, no one is there. This has been my favorite blog for years. I check every few days. Nothing.

    I know how that is. I work under deadlines and there is always a major one looming over my head.

    Until you or someone else posts something here, I will post some place holders just to make things interesting.

    Thanks for keeping the lights on around here, DJ & Brendan. I haven’t had PC or laptop at home for a couple of years and it’s a bitch trying to write posts from a phone. We just purchased a couple of cheap laptops/tablets, so I’ll try to post more often, if/when I figure out how to use the damned thing.

    Besides that, what else is there to say about all of the uncharged felons/traitors running around free, while hardworking folks are being arrested and thrown in jail for simply having a couple of joints in their possession or having the wrong-sized magazine for their 2nd Amendment-protected self-protection tool?

    I just bought a half ounce at the store. An off-duty King County cop was working security at the door.

    So THAT isn’t an issue here.

    But…

    With the Seattle City Council filled up with the craziest socialists you can imagine, we have a homeless problem that is SO bad that if someone were to break into your car at night, all they have to do is tell the cops that they were going to live in it.

    There IS no such thing as a socialist paradise. Only a socialist HELL.

    And unless the voters wake the fuck up and SHOW up at the polls, it is only going to get worse around here.

    Looks like the best distilled wisdom you’ve ever posted here. It deserves widespread distribution.

    it’s because you’ve never really paid attention. You only see the areas where we disagree and judge everything else from that.

    Truth be told, we probably agree on much more than we disagree.

    But hey, I’ve got a rep to protect, I guess. :em05:

    I found the information in the chart to be quite useful. I shall try to commit it to memory.

    If I can plagiarize the chart to include Pepsi and Coke (the cola kind, not the snorting kind. geeze), then it might be useful.

    And I, also, pop in every so often. I would like to see the Bark get back to its former glory. Some good times were had back in the day.

    Try it now. I’ve installed a plugin that will make reading and discussions here a lot easier.

    In fact, I just made and posted this comment using my voice command on my Galaxy S9+.

    AND I just edited this comment with my cell phone.
