Good Morning!

I decided to go with a media selection today when my oldest son sent me the trailer for “He-Man, Revelation” coming to Netflix on July 23rd. If you didn’t watch the original series in the 80’s there’s still time to catch up on all the characters, or not after all it’s a kids cartoon. I watched it often with my younger siblings, and like most things 80’s it produces a feeling of nostalgia, just like when I think about having a full head of hair....stop laughing, I have pictures as proof. 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 to 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 the cows and your waiter, and Welcome Aboard!
