Be calm everyone, I've already alerted the NAACP on this weeks pub title. Sparky, I would caution against your plan, just ask any Hollywood actress who has ever dressed up in blackface for Halloween if it was a good idea.

Crimean winery hoping for better times, now that Crimea is an "independent" republic. If they're smart, they'll take a lesson from Joy Sterling, and make their bubbly a bit sweeter for the Russian market.

You need to attend more gatherings it would seem, to practice up for these extracurricular activities.

Perhaps someone needs to update their frame of reference to at least the late 20th Century?

Going Dark does not refer to your family's propensity for cross-dressing and wearing makeup, but rather "protecting yourself from someone who would do you harm."

Or someone that might jack with your signature? Not that I know anything about such things. That would be just flat out wrong.

Especially when one has no other recourse but to report said hacking to the authorities.

It's not like they would make me a volunteer moderator (which would be a big mistake!) so I could do the same back.

Edit: Although when it's a self-portrait of the hacker, I suppose I wouldn't report the hacker. Like the current one.

Congrats. Glad to hear you can move out of the paid storage, or at least reduce the bill. Sounds like its time for an epic wine moving party.

Friends and Fellow Wooters - It is that time of year again. Once again, I am training for the century (100 mile) bike ride to support MS on June 1. And that also means I am appealing to you for donations. The generosity of this community astounds me every year. So my thanks for your consideration in advance.

This link will take you to my personal fundraising page.

I also have the link in my signature so you don't need to hunt back for this post when the time comes, but can easily find the spot to enter in your credit card information.

I return you to your regular Pub revelry.

I'm usually pretty good at anagrams, but I have to confess I'm stumped by "fcaolporse" and "puls", though I get the drift. Anyone care to jump in?

Congrats on your acquisition!

You know, I was thinking of "wall space", just realized it's "floorspace". But "puls"?

Edit: ok, just realized it's bad typing for "pulls".

Close, but the wrong number of letters.
Try plus in the sentence.

and thanks. Pretty happy with it (I hope) as well, or will be when I clear a place, pick it up, assemble and stock it.
Fortunately, they, Abnormal wine Co. isn't in a big hurry to move it, as the racks are still rather full of their stuff, and that's not included.

Yes but remember, you'll have to aim directly at your monitor. Let's see how that works for you.
