Dang, I had forgotten about Risky!
And Bay Bridge Sue!
...and so many other fun and talented people that have wandered through over the years.





hmm... those 'Leningrad' hairstyles seems vaguely familiar

Hey BVB!
yeah, Risky is, and was, a peach! fun and witty, for sure.
There have been so many "come and go" here, some poke in from time to time, like me, some, very rarely.
I guess it's the way of things.
When I get nostalgic, I'll go back to the original "Bar" and "Bar2" threads.

Always good to see you ygmir!

It just dawned on me, that my last post had a bit of a political overtone and we don't go there in the 'bar'.

My apologies.

I believe that may be the name that Elliot sometimes uses for his "old time radio" personna here. A rare and fun treat! I had seen where he had recently popped in elsewhere on eplaya, so... here's to hoping for another installment at some point if he's so inclined.

Meanwhile, the weather is making a dramatic seasonal change here; much cooler. A new impetus to get summer projects completed.

How is the wildfire situation out there?

ah ok, I guess I must have missed the "Sven update". well dang.
well lucky you and yay for fall! Wish we had more here...
It is cooling off at night more. For now, here, the air is not so bad. It was super bad with wildfire smoke most of Sept. Some new, large and dangerous fires have broken out, in the north state here, not very close to me, at least not yet. When we get the high wind days, with close to single digit humidity and end of summer dry fuels, the fires move so fast people barely have time to get out, and some don't. It's horrible in those fires. I have fire fighting and LE friends who tell such harrowing tales of heroism and tragedy.

It's good to be reminded of Tisha's founding creed. Lights a corona and blows smoke toward the ceiling with Yggy. You know, we used to burn this place down every week or two. So, where's Tish? and Mozy? and SamTzu? and Helitac? and Regina LongLanks? and Sensei?

I made a quick trip up to the Hof yesterday, nice little dusting of snow in the trees.
I love when the season turns cold.

well you have my best wishes on that. If you guys get a shit ton of snow, so will we, and the forest on this side really needs a good wet cold winter. Lets keep our finger and ankles crossed

We did a deep dive and figured out how to make the Booth run on ZOOM, with a backstage channel on Discord. We have around 120 'trained' Pantheon folx (we don't train for 'how to be God', it's just how to use the tech). Angels run the thing, Gods just hang out in rooms, drink Ambrosia (BYOA), and take calls. The installation actually translates into the virtual world almost exactly how it works in the dust.
We'll have another run of training sessions in January.

Stay tuned! 8)

gamingwench, from me:
THANKS!

The folks at Talk to God may have saved my life.

Sitting here imprisoned by the vagaries of the coronavirus has not been fun. Since I'm in three of the 'highly susceptible' 'at risk' categories in this pandemic, I've had zero visitors for the last eight months. Then, in July I had two surgical interventions for an abdominal aortic aneurysm, and two stents to correct venous insufficiency, Within one week of the second operation, my knee erupted in grade 9 PAIN. After two trips to the ER which did nothing, finally the ER chief thought of x-raying the joint, and we found out what I thought it was all along - severe arthritis. No cartilage. I've got bone rubbing on bone. No wonder the fucker hurts so bad.

I was within a day or two of heading down to the sporting goods store and purchasing a 9mm with some hollowpoint ammo to end the pain. Then I went to 'Talk to God' and calmly explained my situation. Within 24 hours I talked to the on-call duty nurse at my primary care provider, who referred the doctor immediately to give me a phone call, She got me the desperately needed orthopedic appointment that finally brought relief from the pain. I wouldn't have made that call if I hadn't "talked to God".

So now what strategy? Total knee replacement is on the horizon. But that will finally permanently end my pain AND restore my full mobility. I take it day by day until then, mainly free of pain for now. We'll see what's on the horizon, but thanks to 'Talk to God' there is a future.
