Where's Martha???

Maybe I've just missed the threads she's engaged in, but I haven't seen a post from her for quite a while. Looking forward to her POV again, she has set me straight several times and she's one of this forums biggest assets IMO...

She hasn't been online for ten whole hours, and her most recent post on the public forums was post #1287 on this thread yesterday at lunchtime, and then #14 on this thread, yesterday morning. She actively participated on the moderator boards yesterday, as well.

I believe she is still traveling and having a great time or she could be home by now. Perhaps you should PM her about your concerns related to her posting frequency. You can get a listing of anyone's posts by going to their profile (available on the member list) and clicking on the "statistics" tab. Or, you can do an advanced search on posts by that member.

Ouch!! I hope she finds a suitable replacement that isn't too pricy.

I was going to get a funny picture to photoshop into the "where's waldo" image, and I google-imaged "sexy grandma." That was a mistake.

Next time be sure you set your "SafeSearch" mode to moderate filtering before hitting enter...

What was that one Brewer warned us about? Clown porn? I've never searched, was too afraid after his warning. I shudder at sexy grandma!

Two months in Texas.

Very few tax and retirement plan questions. But have kept up with the depressing music threads.

Dead lappie.

Thanks for missing me.

Well, I ignored Al's advice and googled "sexy grandmas". And am I ever glad I did. I followed a link to You-Tube, where off to the side I found at least an hour of young Japanese women kissing each other, and in the most spectacular case, doing tongue threesomes. Never be afraid of google; it is your friend.

Ha

I appreciate the compliment but it is undeserved; I am merely a humble student of all that is good and true in life. I tell you, I watch those girls kiss and and I feel like like I am studying at the feet of the masters.

What depressing music? I have only heard melancholic music posted here.

For truly depressing music, one must hear the well-known "Hungarian suicide song" that was banned by Hungarian authority. The French version was known as "Sombre Dimanche" recorded by Damia. The English version "Gloomy Sunday" sung by Billie Holiday was reportedly banned by the BBC.

Youtube got them if any is interested.
