  • I like fried bologna biscuits with mustard. Preferrably the "cat-head" style. After all, if a biscuit wasn't a biscuit, it would want to be a bun. I am especially fond of the bisquick design.

The first post was on page one of the thread, the second post was on page 2 which is the current page in the thread (Life is tough thread). I went back in this thread too and it appears that you can now only edit your post on the current page of the thread.

      Life is confusing enough. I don't need more confusion on a Saturday morning.
      I sent a PM to the webteam about a problem as well. Every time I post, it tells me that my post will not be visible until approved by a moderator. Sometimes takes up to a day to appear. Seems they are having some software issues. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

      EDIT-Of course, this post popped right up. Go figure.

        This is only a test. If is were a real post you would have been advised to seek shelter until the storm passes.

        • Hmmm.
          Problems here in the forums?
          Have you called the Service Desk?
          They have a 24 hour hotline you know.
          You'll have someone looking at your problem before you even hang up the phone.
          Your account is credited and they send you coupons.

            • My lack of subject matter for this thread baffles me. Does that mean I have killed the thread in my head? All of those little voices seem to have quit talking, and started humming. Maybe I have had too much cell phone radiation burning up my brain cells. Or is it the Spam and Vienna's?

              Can anyone suggest a good white wine for consumption with Spam? I'm thinking a Zinfindale or Colombard, or maybe just some coke and rum.

                  the edit button from yesterday is gone so does that mean I should only look for the edits today before they are consumed by the forum squirrels? Or should I be looking for any potential future edits and refrain from making any witty comments that may or may not kill this thread? I like playing with buttons. Don't take my buttons away from me.





                  is about all I can say to this. I think you need to lay off the Spam and Viennas.
                  Cheffie:
                  I am studying this phenomena as we speak. Right now, at this very moment, my buttons from MY posts are gone, because my account is in limbo until I hit one of the two buttons below. Either "submit reply" or "preview post" buttons. I can tell you that the website could save a few bucks by getting rid of the "preview post" button. WHO IN THE...nevermind. Nobody "previews" before they hit "submit reply".
                  So, just before I hit the "post reply" button, I was looking at my buttons and your buttons. I noticed that I had the "edit" button and you didn't.
                  So, apparently, I can't see your's and you can't see mine.
                  Make sense?
                  Have I been naughty?

                    I would think a bottle of a very spirited Boone's Farm would go well with your food choice.
                    Note: the use of the word "food" was an attempt at obscure sarcasm. Scratch off your ticket to see if you have won. You may already be a wiener.

                      Well, If they don't THINK before replying, why would you think they would "Preview" ? No sense in that.............

                              Subject: TRAFFIC JAM ON I-95

                              A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on US 95 south, just outside of Washington, DC. Nothing is moving north or south.

                              Suddenly a man knocks on his window. The driver rolls down his window and asks, "what happened? What's the hold up?"

                              "Terrorists have Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and John Kerry.

                              They want $10 million to release them. Otherwise, they are going to douse them with gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection."

                              The driver asks, "On average how much is everyone giving?"

                              The man says "About a gallon."

                              • I happen to have a bottle of a "cheeky zinfindale" in my possession. It is a Texas Wine from the Dry Comal Creek vineyard. It is a White Zinfindale that has just enough red wine to make it blush. I have been saving it since I got it on vacation back in 2004. Perhaps I will pop the cork and fire the grill up. Some grilled spam and wine would make a great evening. I don't understand the spam haters. I think of spam as a quality food substance, and also a way to protect myself from terror attacks. I used to eat potted meat products, but then I found out what tripe was. Although the thought of a mechanical seperator for pork intrigues me.. Who created that object? I bet it is a monster to watch in action. How does the machine know what parts to seperate?
