Default A slice of your life that you wish to share

The following quote came from the What's for Dinner thread:

However I have been noticing that type of replies to those threads are getting more frequent and I think it's time for this thread, an almost catch all for whatever is happening in your life that you want to share with the other users of this forum. Since we already have the threads for what you ate for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, what you are reading and forums for watching movies and TV that type of post should not go to this thread.

So to start off this thread:

For me I am slowly cleaning up my place, been doing it for the last 2 weeks or so and it might take more time to do since I am only doing this on the weekends.

I like the comments (and make plenty of them)...without them, those threads would be as dry as reading a menu.

I have an article about me and my opinions on home stereo systems coming out in a magazine next month. Not as big as Auntie Lynn's, but still cool to me.

By the way, I really like this thread idea.

If it ends up available online, will you please share that with us?

As perhaps indicated by Susie, in my opinion you attempt to restrict the posters too tightly to the topic that you feel is their appropriate subject. It's excessive and unecessary moderation. I don't think it would hurt the quality of the discourse to lighten up a little and let people be less inhibited by the on-topic restrictions. Sure, kill the trolls & spammers and chill out the foul-mouthed name-calling arguments, but otherwise leave the threads to wander whither they will.

I see HT as a group hanging out on the back lanai or at La Mariana, perhaps holding frosty beverages, and enjoying a lazy afternoon's discussion with no particular structure or objective. (Maybe a few people move off to the side occasionally for a more serious discussion to help each other out with a question or problem.) Imagine if every 20 minutes or so you felt obligated to tell the large group "But that subject shouldn't be talked about right here or right now. Let's all get back on topic." Perhaps after a few of those comments the crowd would move to a new talk-story location.

I say this from my own experience with posting & moderating on other boards. Of course you're doing the hard moderating work on this board, so you get the privilege of making the hard decisions. But since you opened the door and others seem to be going through it, that's my opinion. I won't bring it up again unless asked.

I agree with Nords and Susie while acknowledging that this particular thread has it's place on HT, too.

I saw part of 'A Thousand Ways to Die' on cable. Outrageous stuff, altho I think they exaggerate a bit, just to make it more interesting. Has anyone seen this show?
Edited to add: Maybe I should have started a new thread in the 'tube' folder...

My turn.

Been busy working. Security is not as simple as it was before. Anyways, I'm not writing bout dat. I would like to share my daily delimma of hearing grinding, pounding and everything that goes on at a Construction site. For several weeks, my hale is smack in the middle of it all. No ear plugs can help. My hale shakes. Dust and debris? Plenny. I haven't had a good rest before I go to work. I've asked my landlord if I could break my lease. If I don't stay till October 2009, I lose my deposit.

I miss MWH.

if you can sleep on your back - try using headphones and some sound effects "music". I have some cd's of water sounds, jungle sounds & steel drums that play for about an hour each. right now, I also use a "white noise" machine that sits between the head of my bed & my window. it pretty much blocks out the sound from outside. either one of those methods might help you. my street is pretty noisy, we have a dog that barks a lot and there is a lot of noise from my landlords also. the noise machine really helps a lot. you can probably find one at best buy.

Dear Anapuni808!

We rented this hale cause it was in a quiet lane and near to everything. We pay close to $2,000 a month for it. I work at nights. Tonight, I work the grave yard shift. I can't sleep. I suffer from Migraines and you know wat.
