This is from 2012 but still sounds great :D

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

Been there. done that. And got picture(s) to prove it. Posted them over at: https://www.skirtcafe.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=194832#p194832 I found it to be reasonably comfortable and entertaining. I've also worn it as an undergarment and found that it does get the gut under control. It also kind of...

Some "out there" music...

I gotta say, that was good. I just recently received this one through a friend of mine who described it as Al Di Meola meets The Art of Noise meets Ozric Tentacles. My take is that It may need the introduction of an hallucinogen to achieve full appreciation... Or maybe a few hours or so walking some...

Re: Corona Virus

Thanks. I've struggled with my thoughts on this virus since it turned partisan in the news. You see, once something turns partisan I stop trusting virtually all news outlets, thus when it comes to COVID19, at this time, I'm in the dark... I don't know who's being truthful anymore, it taxes my moral...

Re: Corona Virus

I speculate that my ranting has worn thin, and its potency has expired. Not wanting to talk myself into being discharged as a quack, I shall cease sharing further opinions on this subject. Please note, nobody has called me down, this observation is the result of my own self assessment. Godspeed. Yo...

Re: Corona Virus

Do not misunderstand my sentiments kingfish. I encourage people to be good citizens and do as the authorities instruct for now, to hopefully get this disease under control. However, a good citizen also keeps a watchful eye on their leaders to ensure they are making sensible calls. It is the duty of...

Re: Corona Virus

These closures are typical ham-fisted State activities, and sometimes I wonder if they're not doing these sorts of idiotic things "just because they can". (The cops and politicians, of course, are exempt.) Yes. Y ...well... ..probably. While I know the threat is real and we need to get the virus un...

Re: The Freedom Virus: Are you infected?

Wow.

That article was sufficiently grandiloquent in its rhetoric, I'm not sure whether he lauded or disparaged Hayek.

Re: Corona Virus

Regarding the Massachusetts numbers... I have no idea where the facts and the truth are. And there's enough stuff that even the tinfoil hatters are starting to say that this virus has been on our shores a lot longer than a couple of months. That being said, I agree with you that statistics chosen we...

Re: Some good news!

One of the things that stuns me is that it seems that some places are actually discouraging exercise when we need that now almost more than ever. Shutting down low-density outdoor operations like parks and the like, to me, is insane. Considering the nasty cold my neice and I caught about a day afte...

Re: Member names

Mine was my mother's doing.

It was the nickname she gave me as a little one and I've been using it as such ever since.

Its more likely to have a connection to the old Amos & Andy radio show than any relationship to my real name, John Nelson.
(She did grow up in the '30s-'40s when that show aired)

Re: Corona Virus

I really need to get my old one (a Tek 465) fixed. The problem is that I need a 'scope to fix my busted one, and I can't lift my 545A any longer... Where can one get stuff like this fixed? Don't know the answer to that myself. I personally have a Tek 549 that hasn't been turned on for a couple deca...

Re: Corona Virus

Being in the southwest corner of the hottest county in Massachusetts, I am seeing quite a bit of proactive action going on. The government has done some less than constitutional regulation banning any public gathering of groups over 25 people, restricting restaurants to take-out only and shutting do...

Re: Techniques you've used to get more men into wearing skirts

More men are wearing skirts and its practice is on a path to being normal attire. It is, however, happening at a nearly glacial pace. 22 years ago, when I first found this forum, even kilt wearing in public outside the occasional Scottish or Irish festival was pretty much unheard of, much less skirt...
