In that it appears that the Monster Thread has died a quiet but noble death, I propose that this thread take it's place. Hopefully, it shall contain all that was good about the Monster Thread -- a thread of peace and tranquility, of humor/humour, wit, satire,and silliness. It was an oasis from all the troubling news that is all too real in the world "beyond the horizon". It provided all who came a cool drink of water and a momentary respite.

Personally, the Monster Thread was a place where I could wish you all a peaceful good night, or greet you with a smile and a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

We cannot recreate the Monster Thread, just like it is not possible to recreate the original Woodstock. It is something that just happened, with no overt plan, no rhyme or reason. Yet, in my honest and sincere opinion, it served a valuable purpose for our community. Friendships were made in this thread, and only concerns and worries were lost, albeit momentarily.

Thus, I propose that this thread inherit all the good qualities of the Monster Thread, and, as the Phoenix before it, rise out of the ashes of technological "flames". I would also propose that the Shangri-la clubhouse have no leader (sorry Kosh for your one-term in office postion). Let it be free to wander where it might go, free from the talk of more serious and relevant matters that have their open debates in all the other threads.

RIP Monster Thread. You were of, by and for the people of ehMacLand.

In the words of William Wordsworth

"What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be."

macspectrum, welcome to the Shangri-la clubhouse. Guillotines are to be checked at the front entrance. "Let them eat cake" in this land of "milk and honey".

Would your prefer Tennyson? Whitman?

You know, since we're still posting in the monster thread, it's not like it has died, but simply gone on subversive maneuvers. The usual links are now inactive, but the posts still come to those who can find them.

jeac5, "seek and ye shall find".

The sign on the entrance of the Club house reads

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...."
