Default Cabin Fever

Historically on internet forums, February is a time for cabin fever to flourish.

I see the symptoms here and on other forums already, and it's only 4th. Must be the hard cold snowy winter and lousy economy.

I see a the symptoms in many. Someone says something a little agressive, others respond with a little slap and pretty soon we are in a hand basket going straight to hell. It's tough for us mods to pick one single culprit, because so many join the fray. I can only think back and pity my poor parents with three boys in the back of a 57 Ford Fairlane station wagon driving from Mass up to Nova Scotia in the summer of '58. We all pointed our fingers at the other two, but we were all guilty.

So please, lets's all just step back and be a little less combative and little more respectful to each other, to the community, and to Paint Talk.

I understand that some will read names into this, but that ain't the point. Those of us who have stepped over the line know who we are, we are only responsible for our own actions.

thanks,

spring is right around the corner

Blah blah blah make me.

I'm sorry I didn't mean that.

I do got cabin fever though. Been home alot with my wife which is bad, and my daughter who I've recently learned was sent by the devil. Feb 14th is our anniversary. Thinking of taking a nice vacation somewhere. Ok probably not a nice vacation, but a decent 4 day get away where we can sit back & relax. It's sounding very good right now.

I have been working on my own projects alot lately. I cannot wait for this spring Had some good convo from a couple of guys at SW today.. one guy has been home for 2 weeks Said today was the first time he has left all week. We all shot the breeze about the media hype and how duration is not the easiest to apply but final quality is good... blah blah blah.

Well there just went an hour of our lives that we can never get back. Time to unplug the keyboard again.

Maybe we should have a test.

Look how well it works to keep bad drivers off Massachusetts roads

I just spent 10 minutes typing a very proper STFU letter, only to have it locked before I hit the button!
Thank you Bill!
