As for winter, I am happy I won't have to go to work in the snow anymore. :D :D

Trip was lovely and tiring as well. I spent 5 days in London, 9 days in Iceland and 2 weeks in Spain, France and Italy. :) Scenery was beautiful, though I don't really care for Spain much. I do like all the tiny towns we went to rather than the big cities. Cinque Terre and Glacier Bay (in Iceland) were the standout places.

That does sound great, notlistening – my older sister lives in London, I haven't visited her yet but I do want to (mainly so I can just hang around London), and I'd love to visit Oxford, Glastonbury, Wales, places like that. Someday. :) I wouldn't mind heading to Iceland too, but first I'd stop in Ireland to visit the castle and city that my ancestors owned.

Calma - which moderator should I try to email about the spammers (if any mods are still around)? Logging on to see another wave of agrohimsxc or whatever this one's name is, is rather frustrating.

Edit: the moment I posted this, agrohimsxc posted here again so my post got bumped down. Was that coincidence?

I'm not sure which mods are still active...

I remember a day when you couldn't say bunnyslipper without a mod coming down on you. ;) Good ol' SeverusSnape and Wolfy. :)

(BTW, for those of you not in the know, the boards are...or were...set up to replace certain words with other words. One word...a pretty seriously bad one...would be replaced with "bunnyslipper," which was extremely funny. Except, people started writing bunnyslipper a lot and the mods had to tell us to knock it off because it was messing with their ability to moderate effectively.)

Ah, the days when boards moved so fast you could have a new version of a thread in an hour...or less. I think the record was less than 30 minutes?

The only Mod I know that is still active is heliona.
I sent her an email on her personal account (which I don't like to do)
So hopefully, she can help us out like she did the last time.

Thor 'n ' Oakenshield moderators@theonering.com is the addy for the mods.
Tho, like Iris said, not many are active these days.

Anyone know how to contact Jonathan?
I know he's on Facebook, but I'm not
So anyone able to contact him through that?

:( The dance place where I went almost every Friday night as a teenager has burned down.
It was called Perl's and many Northwest groups who later became famous played there.
Paul Revere and the Raiders and Heart to name two.

Ohhh, the fun I had dancing and being with my friends.
Bye, bye, Perl's.... :(

Sorry to hear about the dance place burning down, Calma. It is always sad when that happens to places we loved. :(

Yes...it is October. :shock:

We used to do MoME in October. Should we do some related theme for this month? (speaking of old memories...) :)

MoME; is that the Men of Middle-earth pageant, or am I confusing acronyms? Having wandered through a few of those old threads, they look really fun; I would love something similar to that, or based off of it. :)
