I believe that thread will be celebrating Pi Day.  However, our dear thread should be cautioned that pizza and apple pie do not go well on the same plate.

He's here! He heard we were celebrating St. Pat's day and that DIL is bringing pie for dessert!

I don't know what he was doing at the cricket match. The little rascal told me he doesn't like sports.

FWIW, when thread sent me a postcard from the Adirondacks, it said that thread was hiking and fishing.  However, I have a sneaking suspicion that the card was written in the hotel bar.

Has anyone ever thought what thread looks like?  During the London Olympic Games, Ashara posted a smiley with a backpack.  He was examining a map of the Underground and scratching his head.  That's how I see our thread.

Anybody else ever feel like a thread-killer? Like, you post to a thread, maybe even just a small comment, and then NOBODY ELSE posts in that thread ever. Or at least, not for several days, when previously it seemed like new posts were appearing several times a day.

Paranoia? Lack of perspective? Lack of patience?

Posted somewhat in jest but also curiosity if anyone else has felt this way. Um, and if I AM doing something to kill threads for real... please let me know.

Lynn2000, I love reading your posts and look forward to them! Maybe no one else posts after you since you sum up everyone's thoughts so eloquently!
When I'm on my phone, I have to side sweep to see who is commenting, except for you, since your name is your tag line! I wish more people would do this!
When I introduce a topic, I always look forward to your take on the subject!

Thread is beyond mere appearances.  Which is a good thing because that green beer is totally tacky.

Why dye perfectly good beer green?  Never understood this compulsion, just because the calendar shows a specific date...

Hey, if Chicago and Tampa can dye their rivers green for the occasion, what's wrong with green beer? after all, good beer tends to be orange and we can't have that on St. Patrick's Day, can we?  ;)

Actually, the green bagels probably look worse than green beer.  That fad probably started when Robert Briscoe was elected mayor of Dublin, because Briscoe was Jewish and New Yorkers liked the idea.

The green bagels look hideous. One of my friends made green and white swirl cupcakes with orange frosting. They were beautiful!

We all need a little whimsy in our lives - it's silly, short termed, and fun.

If people can dye their hair green why not an occasional beer?

^ This.  While personally, I have never had a green beer...it doesn't bother me too much.  After all, it doesn't change the taste of the beer.
I'd rather have a Killians Red though.  ;)

I think thread may have dropped by our Father's Day barbeque. Not sure, but someone had an extra plate full of my mother's yummy baked beans and the meats that my Son-in-law fixed.

That sounds so much like our thread. He does enjoy his food.

I wonder if he has teamed up with the Travelocity Garden Gnome.
