jeac5, Shangri-La was the mysterious place set in the hidden mountains of the Blue Moon, from the classic novel "Lost Horizon" by James Hilton.

Dr G
You should have watched Lexx tonight.
The president of the United States promised our hero Stanley he could be King of Newfoundland, a lush land of infinite delights, and you should hear what he about the women, I wont repeat it.
By the way who is the current King in NFL ??

I do hope so. One good thing about the new thread is that it is automatically born with the hopes and dreams that had to slowly evolve in the previous Monster thread. It's identity is somewhat already defined and hopefully all will find here what they need. Perhaps this thread will evolve as well in ways that cannot yet be conceived of?

Thanks Dr. G. for the literary info. I have not read this and was not aware of where the term Shangri-la came from. Must go for this evening. Welcome all to the New!!!Clubhouse. We will miss the Monster.

Minnes, we have no king in NL. Grimes is the premier, but no king. My wife calls me "the king of korn", but that is due to all of the old Uncle Miltie jokes I am trying out on her in my Jewish vaudeville revival. She a tougher critic than Peter.

by the way
If we know thatb this thread will have a finite existance, by giving birth to the new thread aren't you dooming it to an eventual death?Can you live with that, of course it is possible that this new monster will outlive it's parent thread.

Hmmmp always learn somethin' - I had it in my mind that Shangra La came from Coleridge.....but 'twas was Xanadu he rhapsodied about ...seems to me this is exactly what you had in mind [img]redface.gif[/img]

"In XANADU did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree:.... http://lheawww.gsfc.nasa.gov/users/kaa/poem/poem.html

Perhaps the Phoenix Thread is appropriate...rising from the ashes.

Minnes, in the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on the fate!"

Thus, the Shangri-la clubhouse shall "sail on" through rough seas, but always find a calm harbor/harbour for those who seek safety from "the raging storm".

macdoc, the Shangri-la clubhouse has the Blue Moon ballroom, the "What's Up Dachs?" comedy club stage................and behind the parking lot is the "XANADU" a "stately pleasure dome" with those other sort of "doxies".
