To Whom(s) it may concern - Not cool having Mia's comments removed. She's a long time regular here.

Good morning BRG thread

Yeah, I've heard the fall out all over the webs. Pretty people get a pass? It's the cover of the Rolling Stones; controversy keeps that magazine alive. Because of that context, it doesn't bother me.'Man of the Year' would.

on the subject of Orchids...

All those rich industrialist entertained certain passions (hunting big game for one). Others whose botanical gardens are world famous, were into sending out botanical hunters. These hired hands would circle the globe in search of rare specimens. Case in point; Henry E Huntington of RR fame and the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino Ca.

The book that gives you an insider look at that golden era is "The Orchid Thief"

loved it (the movie stunk)

Good morning BRG'ers...

Yes, one of our locals received some great news yesterday, and this should be the beginning of the end of her long journey!
Thank you for sharing the great news. It has been a long and emotional road but it was worth it and justice has prevailed.
Thanks for showing your support, I truly appreciate it.

OK, folks. This has turned into a mess and it's my fault. So, I'm owning it, and I'm going to fix it in this one post:
This is Hegel's thread. Ferrerman last posted about a month ago. They are going to return. It is no secret that they both have a long history with Sue that is irreparable. We're not going to take a flowery detour around the ugly truth, just because they're not posting right now.
We all know what happened and if you want to rehash the problem, don't do it here. Suffice to say that Hegel and Fer are not going to return to this thread and find anyone who wants to rub salt in old wounds.
Like Who Dat and DK, I was posting in favor of anybody who I thought might have good intentions, but I was wrong. And I don't have to be nice to the person who attacked Fer, a great poster who has always supported me. For a moment, I wasn't thinking about two people who have unfailingly been there for me, and I'm sorry for that.
Sue is very popular, and I'm sure she will be happy to post on the numerous threads she already has. Capriciously posting on a thread created by her known adversaries should never have gone this far.
Meanwhile, it's interesting that it didnít take long to find out how quickly people do not change. Mia's posts have been removed and I think I know who reported them. In fact, those "nasty" posts are being discussed on another thread. Some other posts I've read in the past hour are telling, as well.
Oh, and to you-know-who taking potshots from another forum? You're wrong about the "manipulation." But you've been running with dishonesty for so long you can no longer recognize good intentions.
It is Saturday...... I miss Hegel, Knight Pirate and Ferrerman too, but as they say " pulling the toxic needle from the vein"

Off to enjoy the weekend! have a good day everyone

Good Morning Barbi

Hi Rose...big weekend plans for me!
I miss them too, but I don't think it will be long before Hegel's back. And let's hope for Fer, too!
Have a good weekend.

random thought:
Rolling Stone magazine has always been one of my
favorites for many, many years.
I guess I reached the generation gap and no longer
enjoyed reading.
Is RS wrong in using the cover for the Boston bomber?
It was pointed out that other controversial people had been featured on the cover~~Charles Manson for
example.
Any opinions?
BIG mistake! They're glamorizing the guy, comparing his looks to Bob Dylan. Makes me sick and even though the RS writers are absolutely amazing, I'm not buying the copy.
I don't think we can compare the bomber to Manson.
Manson led a cult and was so interestingly UNinsane he deserved close scrutiny. Readers wanted to hear all about him and his followers, and how he managed to control so many young people of that generation.
And it was in an era where a deed like the Tate-LaBianca murders were just absolutely horrifying, not just because he chose a few celebrities to literally gut, but particularly because people were still feeling relatively safe.
Manson's crimes sort of signaled the true end of an era and a look at what lost souls the drug culture had produced. So, that's why there are so many books about Charlie Manson and he's actually studied. It's so multi-layered, and important today in American history.
But the bomber? What's there to look at? We have become so sick of these punks with bombs that we just want to dispatch them straight to hell, you know?

I'll be in the way kids laugh when they're hungry and they know supper's ready, and when the people are postin' the stuff they write and postin' in the threads they build - I'll be there, too.

Sadly, I don't know any of the players in this game. I'm not supporting anyone, or taking sides. I just have never seen disruption from anyone here but Voldemort and his Mother/Girlfriend.

I like Ferrerman, he cracks me up :)

Ok, I really am out now.

Well, there's a cliche dropping douchenozzle for ya.

Maybe the one taking it too seriously is the one trying so desperately to get an account to post with so he can get a crown.

So what brings you here?

No, don't answer. No one really cares.

RAmen!
This thread now belongs to Susan, pfffft Hagel.

Spending all my nights
All my money going out on the town
Doing anything just to get you off of my mind
But when the morning comes
I'm right back where I started again
Trying to forget you is just a waste of time
Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

Glad you said that - and congratulations on your retirement. Time to get yourself an RV and hit the road. Slab City near the Salton Sea is popular with the the snowbirds during winter.

Now if they would only invent some kind of Prius version of the Winnebego.

That would be fun, indeed, but I think we're destined to stay where we are and enjoy each other's company for a good long while. that's really all I want to do. Make cookies for the grands and just relax for a good long while. Thank you.

How does one obtain ownership of a topix thread? More importantly, why would anyone want to?

If registered posters come to this thread for the sole purpose of trolling it, I encourage those in search of peace to turn them in via feed back.

You can't control the gray box and proxy accounts but we certainly should have some say so over the registered instigators. Join me in making the administrators over at Topix aware of them
