    Pleeeeese. We need to divert Bluey from slaughter threads. It's getting exceedingly tiresome.

    We definitely need an OT thread for Daylight Savings Time (but what happens if we live in Indiana or overseas?). And what time should it start? Midnight? Or midnight?

    Either way, thanks, NJRider, for just reminding me to set my microwave and other clock forward tonight. I'd already forgotten (my cell phone clock will set itself!).

    Yes, we need to divert all those others that keep repeating the same over and over and then complain because some respond to them.

    Psst, are you not getting tired of picking at me every chance you get, every place you post, just because we disagree?
    You would be happy to see me posting if it was something you wanted to hear.
    Seems that what irritates us is only what we disagree with.

    OP, how about asking the Moderator nicely?
    That would get this idea where it needs to go, not be one more place for those that want to vent to do so.

    Hey Mods, I have a blizzard here. Couldn't that justify having an off topic day?

    I hate missing that hour of sleep, but LOVE that it will now get dark after 7! Woo Hoo!

    You are having a blizzard?

    Guess we will have one tomorrow then.

    An OT day would be nice, no more slaughter threads there, I hope.

    Yep, parts of our yard have a few inches of snow and parts have snow layered in feet. The wind is howling at times and the snow was flying parallel to earth most of the day. The interstate and other highways coming into Limon are closed. Fun times out on the Colorado plains.

    Tee hee - our snowdrops and crocuses are up, daffs are budding (late this year) and the lawn needs mowing!

    Still we always enjoy an OT...

    And be nice to Bluey -- she is at least polite on her posts

    Thank you very much.
    I have to say, some that pick on me are also nice about it.
    I imagine they just need a target for their discontent.
    I don't like to be that for more than a time or two.
    When that seems to become a bad habit, then I whine about it.

    Here, also, the yard is trying to green up and grow, was thinking I may have to start mowing the lawn.

    An OT day, with any excuse, would have been nice.

    We are getting the cold and wind, no snow yet.
    Thanks for the warning.
    Seems that Limon does get dumped on big at times.
    They need it, they hardly have grown any alfalfa last two years, as we get some from there when they do.

    There you go - St Patricks's Day - for the wearing of the green. Here's hoping, eh, Mods?
