I’ve been working with the idea of training myself to read through the bbs comments more quickly, though I haven’t formulated an actual resolution yet.

(Well, “more quickly” is a misuse of words. I’m not even on the Quickly Scale in terms of reading. I spend copious amounts of time here, yet never get to half of the topics…On the plus side, I guess you could say I savor what I do read. There’s so much to learn from people here!)

Funny, cause I was thinking I need to do the opposite and slow down a bit! :smile:

Thanks for sharing!

Better bookmark management is my goal. I’m a procrastinator, so I wind up resetting the dates more often than not.

[Looks at list pushing 40 entries, only 15 of which are linked to seasonal/holiday content]
:grimacing:

ETA: We might not have fireworks in Philly because of heavy rain in the forecast, so I’m checking out other shows around the world:

That’s a great goal, too! My own bookmarks could use some cleaning up, too!

Happy new years from Iceland, where the locals make American 4th of July festivities look like amateur hour. All the best for ‘23, mutants.

Happy New Year, fellow mutants!

@Mindysan33 - great question. I hadn’t thought of a bbs-specific resolution but now that I’m thinking of it, I want to be better about asking for clarification on posts. If something comes across as insulting, but is at all ambiguous, I want to force myself to reread before responding, and ask for clarification if warranted. I’m hoping to go a little easier on myself in 2023, and I think going easier on other people will be good practice.
Of course, if someone is being an unapologetic jagweed, they will still get a full serving of smack down with a side of snark. Don’t want to go too soft, after all. :wink:

Happy New Year.

Is anyone watching Miley and Dolly?

Some of the music is definitely not my cup of tea but David Byrne just did David Bowie’s Let’s Dance with Miley.

Good stuff and I can’t believe I’m still awake.
