I want to thank the creators for fixing the forums. It is a New Year and there is much to talk about. The problem is there is too much occurring too quickly and to understand things at any level calls for more than one set of eyes and ears. We need more than one perspective. The Chinese proverb is now in effect. The period of interesting times has come. There is smoke in the air and it is time to circle the wagons. Let's make sense of reality because frankly, it is getting a little strange. The old tools of rhetoric and dialectic have grown dusty. It is time to blow off the dust and get to work. Come, let's make this a year to remember. There is more than enough material to make this a hall of learning again. I'm excited, what about you? Thank you.

Just came back to see if this was a ghost town or not. Looks like somebody is still manning the general store.

Yep.

I'm wondering how to check everyone's ok, now many or most of us are locked down in isolation (whether government- or self-imposed) because of the coronavirus pandemic.

We're all well in my house, but it's frustrating and a little worrying not to be able to look in on elderly relatives, not to mention go out for a meal, a drink, a film or play, or any of the other little joys that we take for granted in normal times that you suddenly miss when they are no longer available.
