We have one little tiff between a couple of the ladies and everyone quits posting. Our little happy community has faded into the woodwork.

Not faded, merely pre-occupied...
Bitin' at a flea...

Verizon on the east coast had a major outage. DSL service has been spotty for several days. Dial-up has been crawling. Greenspun has been down - or at least I could not get in.
What does "faded into the woodwork" mean? Sounds like something my grandfather woulda said. You a centenarian, JBT? Or is it centurian? Ah, fuggedaboutit. Were you born in the 1800's?

I haven't been able to get in either, and Aunt Bee only has a day or two left to post that bisquit recipe.

The server was down, then up, then down again. Reminds me of... nevermind. ;)

Not quite 100+, though depending on the day it can feel like it. The expression I used just goes to show you that I am a true back-water provincial. Or "Corn Boy" as Anita likes to put it.
Pammy, you are getting dangerously near that gutter. Watch your step! ;)

Thanks, JBT. It's a slippery slope. ;)

Did someone say....
LOL...tell me about it!!
I'm one of the busiest servers I know, serving hundreds a day...and always smiling :)
