Very talented young singer/piano player in the jazz-blues-country-singer-songwriter vein. Very understated production. Daughter of Ravi Shankar. Her song of the year was written by Jesse Harris, another very talented songwriter who once had a wonderful unsung group/album called Once Blue.

Blind eye, the mods are turning to us (Og bless 'em).

Continuity is pretty nonexistent,Coldfire, but here are a couple of themes:

Delirious flirtation periodically breaks out between homebrew and swampbear.

Envious, BioHazard sought a partner in flirtation, but declined my offer when he realized I'm old enough to be his mother.

Food was a recurring theme yesterday -- kat bought me breakfast but realized that delivery might be a problem, since we live 1500 miles apart.

Good-hearted but clueless posters periodically pop in to suggest an actual theme to be followed -- these suggestions are generally ignored.

Having surpassed the LOTR post count, we're now discussing what our new goal is.

I hope this helps, coldfire.

Now for a word from our sponsors. ... Buy new Straight Dope brand Thread. It never ends! No matter how much you use it (or abuse it) it just keeps going. Tests have shown that a Straight Dope brand Thread cannot be killed! You can't go wrong with new Straight Dope brand Thread.

Posting here is a way for us to leave something of ourselves for future generations. For instance here we're telling them we have a lot of free time which we don't know what to do with.

Fern Forest
02-25-2003, 06:10 AM
Quick fact. 195 different posters have posted here. That should give us a head start in inferring how many active posters this board has at this very moment. But first we need to determine what percentage of dopers would NOT post in a thread like this which should be quite high since many of our more prolific dopers have not made an appearance.

twickster

Rats, Osiris, it's because our Hawaii-based correspondents make smart-assed comments about their lack of horrible winter weather that some are discouraged from posting here.

That's right -- it's all your fault.
