Good Morning, It’s Thorsday

Your Thorsday Open Thread is up, running, and ready for business. I’m off service for the next seven days so I’ll be around here and there. If you’re in the path of Hurricane Laura get to out of the way and please be safe. mrs_rob and I are going to take a little trip to Georgia this weekend to spruce up the hunting property and check on my mom as she had surgery on Wednesday. I did see we have some limited capabilities back from the Coral developers, hopefully they can keep improving the platform so we can have some semblance of an online conversation here at some point. The unofficial DN Open Thread FF League had their draft last night, since I was working I put it on autodraft and got a “D” Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, but I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to wash your hands, wear a mask, don’t be a jerk and Welcome Aboard!
