Greetings, Bunker residents and new Forum members!

Welcome to the new version of the Forum's virtual bar/cafe/restaurant/pub. This is the place where you can drop in and discuss anything, topic miscellaneous. If you just feel like saying something, if you're happy or infuriated, or have a subject that you would like to discuss but don't want to start a whole new topic, come here and say it!

This place is called "The Bunker" because here we can hide from the world and escape from reality, just for a little while. Last year's Bunker gathered over 3600 posts - I'd like to see this one do even better. Please don't be shy, the Bunker is open to all, no dress code necessary. No dress necessary at all....  

Happy 2004, everybody!

No dress code?  Well is there an age limit on the drinks?  I would like something ruff...  I stayed up and didn't mean too...  Well, happy New Year everyone!  Although I am an hour late for my time zone.  Hmph, wouldn't it be neat if we all had New Years at the same time?  Then some places would have "no time" to make up for the time lost.  Well, off to bed I go...  Enjoy the new year!

Brandon, the Bunker exists in a time warp, so you can be any age you like.

Hello everyone!  Christine, nice job setting the place up.  Last year's Bunker was old and smelly - Frank B. and God knows who else have peed in the corners, Graham has broken the jukebox so that it ONLY plays Teagarden anymore (not that its a bad thing, Grah  

Happy New Year!

If you cross the date line repeatedly very quickly, are you moving in time? Could you visit a past or future day?

I am way too domesticated. I think it may be time to go kill something. Or maybe make salsa.

Boy, I leave for a day and e old bunker (may it rest in peace!) goes nuts!

Poor PD is very very sick, got a fever and everything, and goesn't want to sleep unless she's being held. BW and I have been trading off, and pumping the poor little thing full of drugs and chicken broth. I thought she had given this particular cold to me, but apparently not.

Well, happy new bunker... and awaaaaaay we go!

I guess today is as good as any to go from "Esteemed Member" to "Forum-aholic"...    

Happy New Year, everybody!

I know how you feel Bickle! We made a trip to the Emergency Department about 9:30 last night. Our 21 month old, who appeared to be over a mild case of pinkeye yesterday, rubbed his eyes so much at bedtime we had bloody tears and an eye we couldn't open! Turnd out to be just some damage to the lower eyelid, but we couln't tell until he let us see it! Ever try to keep a toddler from rubbing his eyes?

On the bright side, at least we were home by midnight! Happy new year to everyone! I'll keep hiding in the shadows, never know when I'm going to pop up! Haven't had much in the way of intelligent conversation to offer lately (ever?) but I'm still around to read everyone else's witty comments!

That's scary...... I still get pinkeye myself every now and then, and it's raelly not easy to not rub it. Don't think of a pink elephant. I'm debating calling the pediatrician back right now; the little thing's just so hot...

Ah, kids!

Happy New Year!  Congrats, Yuen Li!  You're still just as esteemed as you were before, in our eyes; we're Forum-Enablers.

Bickle, hope PD gets better soon.      

Our pseudo-champagne last night was Martini and Rossi Asti, and --surprise-- I actually liked it.  First amazing event of the new year.

We're well on our way to 150 pages by the end of the year.

speaking of Brandford...
we had Ellis Marsallis up for a clinic and kick-***  concert earlier this year. Brandford, not living very far away, came up to his father's concert. the reactions from some of the guys who recogonized him were hilarious. "I said 'Hi' to Brandford Marsallis!!!"

my favorite one though was a senior trumpet player. a friend came up to him as he was walking away at the end of the concert and said, "hey, we're doing pictures. don't you want a picture of you with Ellis and Brandford Marsallis?"

to which he turned around and said, "naw man. I'm hungry"

Good mornin' ya'll...  I slept in today.  Makes me feel like I wasted the day...  Well, off to shower and play my trombone...
Just thinking about it, I am going to tour Spain in June.  My birthday is on the 12th of June, when I will be in Spain. But since the time change will I not actually turn 17 until the 13th?  Or if the date there is the 12 then that is the day I shall turn 17?
Any age I want...  Hmmm.... Bar Keep get me one of those drinks Johnny was talking about!
