Is it just me or is this thread getting a little stranger every day?
Here's a factoid for you, did you know that
the Appl Cupertino campus cafeteria has both a wood burning pizza oven and a buerrito bar.

Was that supposed to be a deep analysis, or just an insult?? When people were reading it, we had nothing to say? No, we had something to say; it was subliminal and beyond the perception for those looking for obvious superficial meaning. And now we have something to say and no one can read it?? It is there: but again not visible to those seeking the obvious. You must have the karma!

Don't like this thread??....go away! Maybe we don't like some of yours either (that was a dig). On a side note, please realize that it's not "realease". BTW, macspectrum,.... try standing IN FRONT of the salmon launcher from now on (and send us the video)

Good morning Dr. G. Pleasant morning isn't it? Shall we gather for a spot of tea around 11:00? Cheerio till then.

Peter, High Tea on the front varanda of the Club House sounds grand. I decided not to go to Augusta this year in protest of their stance towards not allowing women in the club. Of course, I was given a 25 year ban from ever setting foot in the executive lounge of the club when I went there with a girlfriend from Savannah (her dad was from Augusta and was a member on the executive). To make a long story short, I did not "look or act the part" of an exclusive member, even though I was dressed better than my girlfriend, and certainly acted much calmer. Still, it was not until I signed in the guest register and when asked if I was Jewish said "Yes", that the "fuss" started. That was spring of 1977, but I have declined to go back, even though I have since received a nice letter of apology.

Luckily, the Shangri-la Club House has no restrictions, no entry regulations, no dress code, no by-laws or entry fees, etc. In fact, there is not even much of a waiting time for our organic 18 hole golf course. I like to tee off at dawn here in St.John's, which is while the rest of you are still sleeping. Then, by the time it gets to the likes of MacNutt, I am in the Club House getting ready for various events. I did have a putt ruined when my ball rolled into the cup and then out, due to a small frog in the cup who decided to jump out at that very moment. However, I shall not blame that on MacNutt, since the rotten salmon were not part of the plagues brought forth upon Egypt about this time of the year "way back when".

If I miss you for morning tea, 4PM High Tea will be a fine time to exchange pleasantries. Until then and there.........Paix.

oh peter, please!
it certainly wasn't meant as an insult. the wording might have been awkward, but you did get the general sense of it, right? i mean, i have posted on the monster thread a couple of times and i am still posting stuff from time to time, even though many people won't ever read what i post there.
everything that comes past page 50 kind of reminds me of wim wenders' lisbon story. anyone seen that movie? maybe we could fit it into the repertoire programme of the Clubhouse's Cinema Paradisio. what do you guys think?

ful, your wish (i.e., "...the repertoire
programme of the Clubhouse's Cinema Paradisio") is our command. The Chez Boggy movie hall is near completion, so start a listing of your top picks for this "repertoire programme". Since it's your idea, you're in charge. Democracy at it's finest here at the Shangri-la Club House.


FYI, the rumors that the Meditation Gardens would be turned into a polo pitch are totally false. Granted, we did get such a request from Prince Charles, but since he has no status in this community or at the Club House, his request was gratiously rejected. Sorry, Peter, I know how much you wanted to have that knighthood bestowed upon you this time around, but maybe we could send a doxie pup to the queen to get you that knighthood.

That's OK, but you still must know the code (8 digits)

I believe you. The black star has been removed from your name tag.

Dr G. Sorry I missed the tea. My mother-in-law needed some attention today and I was needed elsewhwere. Perhaps tomorrow morning before I go off to change a friend's hydro panel. I'd love to try one of your wife's famous bagels.

Thanks, minnes, for sticking up for the rest of us. Personally, bagels aren't a favourite food - but I could be tempted by a bowl of chocolate ice cream. In ehMacland, it must be out of this world. . Come to think of it, I would like to see the High Tea menu. Dr. G?

Fresh tea or coffee, freshly made bagels or muffins, salmon "slushies" (road-kill salmon put in the blender), home-made jams and fresh air. Anyone interested this morning???
