Several of us received them around X-Mas time, though it was truly a random thing, as they were not for sale, they simply arrived.

Those don't count as true Bunch of Changelings since they weren't part of a Woot-Off or "special" day (April Fools, Xmas, New Year's, etc.)

Yeah, they were, yesterday -- but it was missing the crucial randomness factor. I do miss the good old B of C. Even though I hadn't gotten one in a long while.

I don't have that kind of moratorium, I've just gotten totally bored with the whole woot-off experience and forgot to look before going to bed. So of course, that's when they offered the new monkeys. I give up.

They weren't random. They were for the top quality posters. Give yourself a pat on the back if you received one.

Wonder what the minimum was... 'Course my quality posting stopped pretty soon after the newsletter mention about the spreadsheets and lab rat packing. Primarily because that was when the lab rat program stopped and they went to the one-a-day format and I couldn't keep up with the spreadsheets anymore. Although I like to think that the popularity of the spreadsheets was what prompted them to start listing the discount % on the offer itself. And I never got formal QPs for most of them since that didn't start til later. Nor did I get QPs for the packing since it wasn't in the main thread... Don't mean to sound whiny, just stating observation. God knows I've received my fair share of goodies over the years and I certainty don't mean to sound ungrateful.

We looked at the top x number of quality posts for the year (2012). Come into the daily sale threads (especially wine!). That's where you're more likely to get them.

Tell me about it! But I did figure it was the 20% Cooler count from the the main thread during 2012.

And CJ never really gets a 20% Cooler from keeping the list of Gatherings up to date (and when are we getting that GATHERINGS Tab????). Nor did I for posting it in the new Monday thread, nor subbing for you and Jason when you couldn't do the How Good is This Deal? post.

But then again, I did have all those labrats. And last June.

You could come to the "Beaches of Cheyenne", but it's kind of frozen over right now.

Gah, now I've got that song buzzing around in my head.

I will drink no wine before it's time. What time is it, anyway?

When I moved last summer I stayed overnight in Cheyenne. I had "I Can Still Make Cheyenne" playing in my head the whole day before we got there and most of the day after. I loved Wyoming, it was so beautiful! But all those gates on the side of the highway (presumably for closing the roads) were pretty scary! I can't wait to go back and visit, but not during the winter!

Just saw a news story that Lake Erie has ice dunes. Ice from waves piling up. Looks really strange.

I grew up on the shore of Lake Erie, in Erie, PA. The ice dunes happen every winter, they are a combination of frozen wave action and blocks of ice broken up by the moving water as the Lake freezes from the shore out. Add a bit of new snow and there you have it! They are quite nice to look at however very dangerous to walk on because there are many hidden openings and if you fall through it would be very difficult to get out, not to mention you may be in deep water. Further out in the lake if it freezes completely over (less common now but usually every winter when I was young) are pressure ridges, similar to ice dunes, blocks of ice pushed high up due to pressure from ice movement and wind. Also dangerous. Every now and then people think it would be easy to walk across the frozen lake to Canada (Less than 20 miles from Erie, PA to Long Point, Canada but not easy at all due to cracks, open water, pressure ridges, etc.



My dogs like me, that is important.

Yeah, they do close the roads a bit around here during the winter. It's not the amount of snow, it's the blowing winds and snow combined that makes it dicey.

Anytime you come back to the area, PM me. I've got a gob of wine club friends here that would use any excuse to get together.
