Have the # of new topics fallen off; also less interesting?

Apologies in advace; maybe I've been a member of this board too long (or is it just internet burn out) and this is after my second glass of wine - Condesa de Leganza 2001 La Mancha, Spain $6.50/bottle - very good.

Have the number of post fallen off recently? And those that are posted; do you find they are not very interesting?

hi dex,

Everyones too busy around the holidays to keep the post count up. I predict the entertainment factor will increase sharply once the portfolios have been rebalanced.

Re: Have the # of new topics fallen off; also less interesting?

I think it's as great as ever, although The Forum may take a hit once I head
south (tomorrow), and my posts fall off. OTOH, it will give others a chance to catch
up on the post count. Anyway, I am still amused although I confess
it is mostly because I am posting. As DW likes to say.......

Your choice bro. *We're in Pottsboro, (Tanglewood actually), a few
miles north. *I know we'll be at Huck's Catfish a few times.
