Good morning everyone.
Jean-Paul are you still suffering side effects from Sunday.
bounder 11/27/2012 7:01:19 AM Report

Morning everyone,where,s the duck this am.
celest5 11/27/2012 7:43:35 AM Report

Sorry, I should have said Bounder.

Bounder and jean-paul certainly do have their similarities. Both quack and both use commas for apostrophes.
Spellchecker 11/27/2012 8:52:05 AM Report

Thanks for the welcome yesterday, epc. If we could get a little more action in this room I would consider resurrecting my former spelling class as in the red room of old, when the characters were many and colourful, and the posts were multitudinous and humorous. Every once in a while I get the urge to come out of retirement.
bounder 11/27/2012 9:00:43 AM Report

You maybe the duck as you use commas also.
Bobby Nerves 11/27/2012 10:23:43 AM Report

Who's using epithets?

Nop! He's having appetite!

Oh, I see, then, she's a petite...

Well, let's make a petition for an aperitif, then.
Pink Peony 11/27/2012 10:25:51 AM Report

Spellchecker, I noticed the similarities too.
Pink Peony 11/27/2012 10:28:40 AM Report

Really didn't have an effect on me though.
Spellchecker 11/27/2012 10:41:06 AM Report

Very good, Pink Peony * . I told you you'd get it.
Spellchecker 11/27/2012 10:41:51 AM Report

I'm going to the blue room to tell shakey about his great job.
Pink Peony 11/27/2012 10:57:25 AM Report

Thanks Spellchecker :) Now your post affected me. It's effect was effective in that it caused me to smile.
mallet 11/27/2012 11:22:03 AM Report

Morning Folks...

P P. I was greatly affected by your correct use of "affect", in fact it is effective in making sure I spell things more correct in future!

Out here we seem to have missed the majority of the snow, getting about 8 centimetres only, if that, and the wind has got out of that cold nor-east direction.

Hope I see a few of you tomorrow at the West side for lunch..

You all drive safe out there...

Now we're talking, folks. Pink Peony has obviously perfected the 'affect, effect thing' and Wicket has given us a lesson in the use of the adverb.

Good Afternoon Red Roomies

So good to see so many familiar faces this afternoon. I got up very early this morning. had a coffee and toeast and decided it was too early. So back to bed I went. This is the result.

I would love to see the WOTW Spelly and maybe we can get 3tac out of retirement to write the SOTW again.

Have a great day and be safe!

Maybe I will start up the WOTD again. That was fun and educational for myself.
bounder 11/27/2012 2:44:51 PM Report

Wrong about 'affect, effect thing'.Cause' and effect' is correct.
shakespeare 11/27/2012 2:58:52 PM Report

Yipee ... just back from by first cross-country ski! It was an inauspicious start to the season. On my second kick, one ski glided and the other didn't. Learning the splits at 61 is not easy. Fortunately, nobody was around to see me bury my face in the snow and watch my,increasingly with age, ungainly efforts to stand up. I may have to apply ice to the "affected" area. Congratulations PP and everyone on applying the lesson to such great "effect".
Pink Peony 11/27/2012 3:09:02 PM Report

LMAO Shakespeare!!! You described that so well...I got the mental picture!! On a serious note, I hope you didn't hurt yourself too badly. Last time I went skiing (downhill), I tore my rotator cuff. That hurt! It felt like my arm had torn off. I actually looked to see if it was still attached. Haven't hit the slopes since.
mallet 11/27/2012 3:10:42 PM Report


I still have application forms for the "Vienna Boys Choir" left over from my in-laws visits and swimming in Lake Superior, should you feel the need!!!
shakespeare 11/27/2012 3:33:17 PM Report

PP and mallet. Thanks for your concern.
My band may have totally new expectations of my singing potential. Maybe a few Tiny Tim numbers!
bounder: your comment suggests that you are "out of the conversation loop".
bounder 11/27/2012 4:44:18 PM Report

Hard to get in a circle jerk.
Wicket 11/27/2012 5:23:11 PM Report

bounder, it is not hard to get into a circle
- first, you put your right foot in, put your right foot out, shake it all about
- then you put your left foot in.... and so on
- eventually your whole body will be there and in this room, no one cares if you are left or right, ' cause now you're in the circle and it is continuous...
bounder 11/27/2012 5:27:34 PM Report

Very good.I'm in.
