What did you do when this site was down

39 posts in this topic

OK, so I admit it; I'm hooked on this site. So when it was down yesterday I was totally dumbed out. Nothing on TV. Bad weather.

I ending up being a victim of the wife's honey do list. Hanging curtain rods is not an acceptable alternative to this site!

So what did you all do??

I freaked out, kicked my computer, tore the house apart looking for chocolate, then grabbed a rod and went fishing for sunnies. shocked

I was bummed out and was a little flustered towards the end, but it was OK since I was watching my twin 7 month olds and trust me they gave me plenty to do.

I went outside and kicked my dog....... just kidding. I actually got some work done, and found a little time when it was up to post a couple things.

I pestered the contractor working on my house. He was happier than I was when FM got online again.

It was so bad that I nearly went out and got a job. Thankfully it's running again so I can still screw around in my retirement.

I kept clicking refresh trying to figure out why I couldn't get on. After 3-4 hours I gave up and sweated all night cause I couldn't get my fix.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
