Sixty one in Raleigh and 63 at the beach and now I know why I moved south. Get me back south soon and warm. Tornado watch should be expired so oh yeah had a Tornado watch there. Is there any safe weather zone this week? Warm, comfy, no wind or severe storms?

Change of subject. My subject in this post: posters who get enraged, hostile, and aggressive if a thread they started gets ever so slightly off-topic. There was one of those a year or more ago, SelflessGene, and now we have another one, this time female. Life is too short for that sort of non-sense.

Sometimes the off-topic conversations are much more interesting and substantive that the on-topic posts.

Our house a couple of days ago....99% melted today but more to come....the snow seldom sticks long in our part of KY but fun to have it once in a while....no shoveling required usually.

Escort Rider - I see what you mean about that thread - it is getting a big contentious for sure.

Sometimes a little sensitivity would be nice, though. For example, why send a private message to a person with whom you've never interacted before--and who does not know you--a paragraph of highly critical remarks; and, worse, to a person who is very ill, and will wake up on Christmas morning, alone, only to find that one, totally denigrative, personally critical message?

On Christmas morning??

What did I miss? What # on the post? Or a hint as to date?

Just came back from the movie Les Misérables. Possibly the best film I've ever seen, it will likely sweep the Oscars. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne (and the little boy) are stellar and heartbreaking. I think many in attendance had tears rolling down their faces with every scene and song. It had a much more humane feel than the Broadway musical, and the cinematography was astounding. Victor Hugo's masterpiece, imho, ranks with the five most outstanding novels of all time...and is timeless and apropo today. So one winter project "in retirement" is to revisit the book and do some background reading on the French 1832 uprising, as it's been some 40 years since reading it with an attempt in French. Anyway, if you can, see this movie.

A mis-characterization of my message. You could have added that I was basically agreeing with you. I was doing what I always do - exchanging views - the fact that it was Christmas morning didn't even occur to me. Let's not even get into your response. If I were you I would be embarrassed even to bring up the matter, as if you had some legitimate grievance, whereas the reality is exactly the opposite.
