I got up this morning and didn’t see a thread so I’m throwing one together now; my Coral post is still up and I’ve put most of the information I’ve gleaned from all of you in there, please take a minute or two and review what I’ve listed, if you see something I missed post in there, I’ll see it. It’s been raining here non-stop since last Thursday, but that beats the cold weather the rest of the country is having. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s weekend eve, time the plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.

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, tip your waiter from a safe distance, and Welcome Aboard!
