I might well have said this earlier in the thread (with 104 pages, I'm not going to go back and inventorise !) -- but -- on other forums, not so much on this one -- I've often thought: "if I'd been a Viking, they'd have called me Weevil Threadslayer".

Hm, Weevil Threadslayer.  Has a ring to it.   :)

It also keeps the thread alive.

I think that happens every once in awhile but it could also be that the last thing posted summed it all up and there was nothing left for anyone else to add to the discussion.  Then there are the abhorrent thread killers who derail discussions by their constant nitpicking.....I guess that's a different thread for a different time.
Always be polite, even to nasty people. Not because they are nice, but because you are.

I'm over here to use my thread killing powers which I have adequately displayed throughout the internet this evening.

Another is posters who pick at any post that isn't exactly on topic, even in the coffee break section!

Dear Thread,

     Thank you for the help while Lucas was ill. You were a big comfort. I hope you went on to visit others.

     I will start marinating corned beef on Valentine's Day so hope you can come help, as well as attend the St. Patrick's Day party in March.

     Response not needed, but just FYI, I have green dye left over for you from last year.

Love, Luci

I hope that our dear, little thread will enjoy Burns Night tonight and Australia Day tomorrow.

I DO fear that dear, little thread will be very ill on Tuesday but these things happen.

There's a lot to celebrate this week! 

Valentine's Day on Saturday

President's Day (in the US) on Monday.  Okay, that one isn't a real biggie but it's on the calendar. 

Mardi Gras on Tuesday

Chinese New Year on Thursday.

Every year on President's Day, my mom and I have the same conversation.

Mom: You're off today, right?
Me: No, Mom.
Mom: You're not? But it's President's Day! It's a federal holiday!
Me: We don't get President's Day off, Mom. We get Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Spring Break, that's it until mid-May.
Mom: I don't understand that.
Me: We have this conversation every year, Mom. I also don't get Good Friday or Columbus Day off.
Mom: That's so strange.

In other news, stay warm, Thread! It's cold out there today.
