Look at the first link under “League News” there’s something important there, I’d like everyone to take a look at it when you have time, if the article triggers you like when I shared some personal news about my family last week with two former posters log out. I had a few minutes today to throw the mailbag post together; lots of very good questions in there, I’ll start working on it today and have it ready to post Friday morning if you have a question you want me to answer. Consistent with this week, it’s one of those months at my house, I won’t be around much if at all but I did ask GA Skol to keep an eye on the thread. 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 Thorsday, one more day until weekend eve!

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 very well, it’s been a tough year and a half and Welcome Aboard!
