It's always nice when new people join in on the forums. awssm has been posting unusual daily holidays/celebrations, and August 18th was Bad Poetry Day.

We also like to see new posters in Let's Play, djinnmaster, so feel free to drop in there.

Me, Myself and I
Happy birthday to me! If you see me today without a drink because I could not afford one myself, please buy me one. I thank you.

Thank you, thank you
It is usually best to avoid posting while under the influence but I just wanted to stop by and say thanx.
I'll say goodnight with just one last request of great import:

Thanx again CB but:
1. The chance of seeing a Mercedes in my garage anytime soon is remote (I'll need to get a garage first LOL).
2. Who even remembers what "Dialing for Dollars" was anymore?
3. Well, at least, I can enjoy the company of friends from time to time...

Maybe you can win a garage too!

Is there a holiday for today?

I am still recovering from yesterday's celebrations! Fittingly, tomorrow is Senior Citizens Day and I am definitely feeling a bit older.

In 1869, American Cornelius Swarthout (also spelled as Swartwout) patented the first U.S. waffle iron. This iron sat atop wood or gas stoves. The cast iron plates were joined by a hinge that swiveled in a cast iron collar. In 1891 John Kleimbach, a German immigrant living in Shamokin, Pennsylvania became a traveling salesman of waffles after fashioning an iron for the Mansion House Hotel. Kliembach sold waffles for a penny each or ten cents for a dozen. He was a sensation at the Chicago World's Fair.

I haven't had a waffle in ages, but I sure wouldn't turn down one of them.
