1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Closing Thursday December 24 at 12:01 AM EST

      So, you've been a MB member for a while, but have just recently become active?
      (Had to mention that I found your "About Me" very entertaining. :D )

      Carry on... :-)

        Lol, no it wasn't a criticism... just something I'd noticed. :)

        This is not the exact location at which I stand, neither is it the place I wish to be. How fortunate, then, that I’m elsewhere.

    When I was born, the doctor dropped me headfirst on the delivery room floor. Even though I seemed to be okay, my parents decided to put me up for adoption in case I possibly had brain damage. A few months later, I was adopted by itinerant farmers Rossini and Mierdita Martini who were deported from Sicily for not washing their feet before they crushed grapes in a large tub...

    I was raised as an average American boy with below average grades and used clothing from Goodwill and the Salvation Army. We lived in a rundown apartment building with neighbors who listened to all kinds of music ranging from blues man Earl Hooker, crooner Dean Martin, warbler Ethel Merman, and bandleader Spike Jones. In spite of this, everything changed for me on one fateful Sunday night in 1964 when I heard the Lennon Sisters sing on the Lawrence Welk Show. Their music inspired me to attempt to sing their wonderful harmonies with my single voice.

    My family lived in poverty until my father won the Utah State Lottery. He made a generous donation and got me enrolled at MIT, where I majored in Uncivil Engineering with a minor in anterior spatula design. I am presently employed by one of the largest vacuum cleaner manufacturers in the world. If something needs to be cleaned up somewhere, chances are that I may have had something to do with its design. I prefer to live in a reinforced concrete block house with armor-plated siding and bullet-proof windows. Most of my shopping is done on the internet, except for grocery items like fresh imitation crab meat and pimento yogurt onion rings. I still try to listen to a big variety of music, except for Pat Boone and all of his female impersonators, Country Acid Fusion Funk, Waltz Rap Yodeling, or Spoken Polka Folk Jazz. I like to read technical graphic data novels, and do it yourself manuals featuring the Hardy Boys, Non-Euclidean geometrically opposed integrated detective romance paperbacks, and politically inspired books with a slightly non-parmesan attitude and a hint of semi-religious fervor.
