loneliness reduces

Not to mention Misa del Gallo! I remember that series of early rising days when i was in your country 40 years ago, yaying. I slept in a dormitory, and the first morning i could not stop my alarm going off as it had fallen down the inside of the bed. Was I popular??? No!!!

You were just ahead of your time, @kirkie - practicing in that venerable tradition of waking up everyone else in the albergue. Alarm clocks, plastic bags, whatever.
(We do know...not that you would ever do that now....;) It sounds like once was traumatic enough.)

It's snowing on my desktop computer! :)
But not on my smartphone. :(
It's really weird because my desktop browser is so crippled it won't even allow me to post to the forum.
Maybe that means it's time to upgrade the dinasaur. That's been our family's experience anyway with most techy items in the house.😯

Snow only on computers (no mobiles). It uses a tad more computer power (to show the snow) on the user end, so I did not want to spend more battery for mobile users...
Oh, Ivar, how nice to see you here! Possibly you are thinking of joining this club of unserious thoughts? 😉😂😄, but probably not!

Serious, non-serious, curious, interesting, shocking, hilarious, whatever - but never hard or sharp. This thread really does serve a wonderful purpose, so I vote we arrange a huge applause to domigee for the original idea. It caused a wee ripple (understatement!) the other day when we thought we were for the chop, but thankfully it is only the logistics that demand we stop and start again. We still might make the 9,000 mark! So glad to see all the regulars, but always delighted to see 'newbies' daring to put their heads above the parapet and claim ownership of their membership.
An interesting question: when did you become part of we?

Well, that post sure started something.
As for me I have no idea. But I do know woolly mammoths were still around when they were building the pyramids. And if we had a year for every post we would be seeing mammoths too.

I can’t take credit for elephants or red socks – but maybe for the combo…?

So you think that in another 8,000+ years we will see mammoths again? You could be right and I am patient. I intend to live forever or die trying…:p

And for an awful lot of wit besides.:)
If humor is good for your health, maybe you'll manage to live into the answer to your question.
Maybe. But don't change your plans on that account.

I love the 'similar threads' function. It unearths some gems. Like this one which would have found the perfect home in this thread if it had existed then:
leaving three men to choose the presents ....

i have this collection which i took the profile pix
Geeze, no wonder it's noisy in here. There are a lot of people in this little albergue!
I don't have time for your quiz, BB, but hope it is fun for all who do! I'm really touched by how much effort you've put into it.
Happy Thursday everyone! Except for @yaying...a special "Happy whatever day it is!" to you.:cool: (I can't keep track....:rolleyes:o_O)

Time is just weird.
I don't understand
How the elephant knows
What hour's at hand.

It's only just now
But you say it's then -
Though I already lived that
Going out with a friend.

"Before now, and later,"
Say our elephant friends,
"Are only a concept, so
The mind needs to bend."

So forget that whole time thing
And dance with red feet
Bringing giggles to children
Who run in the street.

That's really great and wonderful poetry! So creative!

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

I was so afraid I would not have time to finish the quiz! I just did. But now my problem is to try to remember where I wrote the earlier answers! And now, seriously, seriously: even if you have opted out of looking for the answers, bristle boy has done a great service of speedwalking the camino, so I recommend just taking a few moments to read the messages re the quiz, even if you don’t go on to search. I enjoyed your ‘tour, Bristle boy!

I completed the quiz yesterday, Kirkie. I hope you don't find your list of prior answers cuz you are so smart you would be sure to win! Oh, I just remembered that it doesn't matter if we have one correct answer or twenty as our names all go into a hat and BB will be blindfolded, then pick the winner! 😃

That's some good armour you've got there, so I'm sure to lose, just like in childhood. 😯 BTW, did you borrow that from a lady? It looks like an old fashion chastity belt to me! 😂😀😁

Greetings from a quiet dark morning, but safe in the knowledge that tomorrow will have 3 minutes more daylight, and every tomorrow for the next 6 months. If someone else has a different calculator, speak up (as if anyone is shy on this forum about such matters as accuracy!) the moon this morning is splendiferous. My phone can’t capture it. 🌕🌕🌕
