Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming “WOOOOHOOOO, what a ride”!

Yeah, that IS a pretty good one!
What’s that one from Mark Twain about “don’t let something get in the way of your education” ?

I heard a good today: Growing old is like mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter! ;D

Someone on another forum has this as her tag line:

“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”

Attributed to George Bernard Shaw. Seems very appropriate for internet forums. :smiley:

Just listened to Cohen’s on you tube… WOW I can see why it’s one of your fav!

PBS carried a concert of his from Londong (England) and he did the sang…fabulous. He’s been around forever ;D

LOL, clicked on the link and ended up with some “boy” group…don’t think they’ll have the same longevity :wink:

I have to ask: what does OT in the subject line stand for? I’m guessing it’s a texting abbreviation and I DON’T text ;D

I would assume “off topic”. :slight_smile:

OFF TOPIC it is. :wink:

;D ;D ;D…there you go; it’s found it’s proper home :wink:

The problem I find with the “off topic” forum is that I never remember to look here. My friends are on the Cuba board, and that is where I check. I would like to suggest there be an “off topic” sub category for Cuba, as there is a “Cuba meeting place”, “help the Cuban people”, etc. Then I would see the latest post from the Cuba off topic forum and get to participate, as would others who tend to check the “last post” but not the other forums on the board.

So now I am “off topic” on an “off topic” thread. ;D

I will mention an “on topic” subject. Two musical pieces are far too few! I also love “Hallelujah” and I would like to mention pretty much anything by Al Stewart, but particularly “Time Passages”. And “I Hope You Dance”, as sung by Lee Ann Womack. And I could go on, but suffice it to say, two wasn’t nearly enough.

  1. Self employed logistics consultant.
  2. Play the drums.
  3. Scuba diving Instuctor.

Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name
The Jam - Town Called Malice

Fiat justitia ruat caelum (Let justice be done though the heavens fall)

I have the latin tattoo’d around my neck ;D

An excellent suggestion and just the type of suggestion the Editor is looking for from members to improve the forum :slight_smile:

Like steffiej wrote, good ideas are always welcome!
We will move on this one asap.

Thanks eeeefarm!

Dear steffie and editor,
That is PRECISELY why I put this up on the Cuba board in the first place, duh! (see my mp to steffie sent earlier this week after the topic was moved)

Offtopickers of the world, unite… and salsa! ;D
