I'm starting this thread as it has been pointed out to me that I "shout " more than post. This may be a sad reflection on my life, but I couldn't "shout' this so I'm posting it.
I'm still hoping to meet some of you in Ballarat. As mentioned earlier, I will be the long suffering mother sitting outside smoking. Come and say hello!

Hey, if you drop my junior off to Hubby and take me with you can I still come too?

Only to let you know that I'm not shouting at the moment.
maybe I should have called this the Shout box Thread.

It was just supposed to be a bit of fun. Some people have no sense of humour. Perhaps better close this thread oh powers that be...

If you talk to yourself people will begin to wonder, so talk to me

We can sort out a 'local' where we (CC members etc) all meet after the games Saturday night. As long as it has a nice selection of beer. ;)

Problem for me is Hubby at lodgings minding little junior and me at tournament waiting for chess junior. Only one car...chess junior to get home...me to go out? Not going to work without help. But never mind will at least meet some of you during the day.

Saying so myself, I do have the gift of the gabb with the girls.

I have a photo in front of a beautiful chick who because of her living overseas we had to split - if I could turn back time. In six weeks together we did not have one cross word.

Damn ... I'll have to take a rain check ... for about 5-10 years when my kids have all grown up and can look after themselves a bit better, so that I'm free to play a few more tourneys.

It shouldn't be, its a very helpful tool. Some of us are just abusing it a little :uhoh:. Perhaps it could be limited to two Shouts per person per day?

That could have advantages but I thought you said most ISP don't like you hosting an IRC server on their network.

Punters Club have had a shock 'redundancy' action occur, reducing membership by 33 1/3 %.
Remaining two members have decided on a survival strategy, :eek: :uhoh: " work ".

With reference to shoutbox, I guess I do have a problem with shoutbox becoming a chat forum

Genuine shouts don't see the light of day

You can always just post more instead.. you'll be pleasantly surprised when you reach 200, a magic leprechaun comes out of the forest and shows you a secret garden reserved only for those elite and beautiful souls.

Yeah, most do not like it... but there might be a few that do accept.. might be US based.

Today is 'Harmony Day'-what does that mean?
It means the kids have to wear something 'orange' to school-who has orange clothes?
A tired mum slept in so everyone is late. I bully and yell them through breakfast and music practice and school preparation and briefly wish my husband 'Happy Birthday" as I push him out the door...in light of the occasion, not yelling at him for his lack of assistance. Harmony Day?
I yell instead at the kids as we drag school bags, lunches and projects into the car and drive the 20 minutes to school. There was no harmony in the back seat this morning.
But when we got to school, there were 700 or more kids dressed in orange and carrying orange, teachers and parents too, some even with orange hair. The bell went and over the loud speakers came came beautiful, joyous soul uplifting music in celebration of Harmony Day.
700+ orange clad children aged 5-12 broke into smiles, danced and played and held hands-all colours, races and religions.
Parents and teachers smiled and my heart lightened. Here is Harmony Day.
The motto is, "The hand of friendship has no colour"
I found an old orange T-shirt in the back of my wardrobe and am now proudly wearing it.
Happy Harmony Day.
