Talk About Anything Here
These days I do it mostly on mobile, unless of course I am doing development work. Then it’s either my laptop or desktop.
Dave Desktop for me for sure - I prefer a decent size screen with real estate so I can see everything...
Thought it would be good to have a thread so will can tell members about ourselves :)

I shall go first...

I am married with 4 grown up children (3 girls and 1 boy) no grandchildren yet. My kids are all close in age there is just 7 years between them all.

I have always struggled with my mental...
PGen98 Absolutely honoured to have you back here, [USER=462]@Dave[/USER] :)
Sunshine after the storm today. I've been doing self-care and have been to Ikea and have bought myself a Summer bed set for 59$CAD before tax! And I'm so happy with it! It's so beautiful and elegant! I'll post pictures after I put it on my bed because it's still too cold and rainy over here in...
J I have an Ikea chair and foot stool you can have. I never sit in it, it's a collector of stuff...
This is Hilarious. Reminds how so many continue to Tell Me I Need the Vax and I don't, I take care of my own Immune System.

Has anyone heard from her? I haven’t seen her around anywhere in over a week. And today her forum was taken down. :(
Naiwen I think it's because I don't normally have any sugar, so I've felt pretty dizzy that night.
I know it's been pretty slow in here for a while but this is getting ridiculous!

Maybe the admins should send out a monthly news letter featuring articles/posts and reminding members via email about the forum? What do you think?
MamaFrankie Thank you, everyone. Dreading his birthday in 3 weeks.
I wanted to post publically that you are very much appreciated and liked on this forum :hugs:
Elya [QUOTE="willowtigger, post: 132371, member: 95"] I truly do hope she makes a full recovery...

War made easy

World war 1 the simple view, as a pub fight:

Germany, Austria and Italy are stood together in the middle of the pub, when Serbia bumps into Austria, and spills Austria's pint. Austria demands Serbia buy it a complete new suit, because there are splashes on...
PGen98 Definitely a relatable breakdown of how the wars happened :D
I dont know if there is a jokes thread. If so I will post there. But I thought its nice to have some light hearted threads 😋.

How you you call the Eiffel tower when it falls down? The I fell tower.
Butterfly88 Q: How many Amish people does it take to change a lightbulb? A: What's a lightbulb?

WhippedCream I really like this forum, it's a very friendly place ☺️

It is a brilliant package.

Work from home plus car allowance.

Of course, I don't have my driving license at the minute (due to the schiz) but hopefully will get it back this year.

I can't really believe it lol.
WhippedCream Well done on the new job, is this something that you've wanted to do for a while?
I used to take them according to the mood. But some people are very specific about their choice. Some are more precise about their selection. They have a brand that is so dear to them. Then the proper amount of milk and sugar.

So tea shops are a mess. It is hard to call it tea. Ready to mix...
WhippedCream I'll have coffee very occasionally but I'd much rather have tea... or hot chocolate come to...
How many of you are comfortable about moving to another place ? For a new and better job or in search of one ?

I have always felt that if we live in a decently crowded and big city, our chances of nailing a good job will improve a lot. We will come to know about a lot of opportunities that...
WhippedCream Moving can be a particularly lonely thing to do, even if you do it with a partner. I think this...
I haven't had a heavy bite of chocolate in a long time. Found myself too much involved in packed sweets and tried to get free of them. But Snickers was the king when it was something big for me. I do not always buy the big one. For me, something of medium-range is nice. Too much of anything will...
WhippedCream I don't really mind what brand of chocolate really. I'm not a big eater of it I'd say. Anything...

Finally, it's in the 20 degree Cells and up in Northern Canada. Yesterday, been wearing sandals and Summer cloths for my jab and a walk. Finally feels sunny and warm outside after 8-9 months of snowy, cold and harsh Canadian winter. So glad for Spring!

Problems of a Domestic Cat

I love my humans
I wish they’d understand
Why I was naughty today!

They told me off for kneading
While they were stroking me
But I was merely imitating
What a kitten does to its mum!

I accidentally scratched them
I didn’t mean to you see!
They were playing...
