  •  Because there is ALWAYS a stink (6+ / 0-)

    And we are not jerk whisperers. What passes for community moderation on the outer boards would be laughable, if it weren't so sad.

    I hate when we lose good people, because our little slice of the greater DK community gets along pretty well and genuinely does some good.

    •  We get along extremely well (5+ / 0-)

      and you are very right -- we do good here.  Besides helping one another with the smoking habit, we bring joyful moments to each other when they are unexpected and yet needed.

      Can't emphasize enough how many times you folks brought me out of a funk -- especially this time of year.  You are all generous, funny, thoughtful and anyone who knows you is damned lucky.

      Now, back to the important stuff -- I haven't seen one damned ugly kid in this diary.

    •  You got all that right , Friend Yankee - (6+ / 0-)

      I thought of you  when passing a shelf of frozen lobster tails and agan when gazing up from my cripscoot at the maple syrup semi - safely stored on the top shelf at NaziMart today. So , I settled for a small jar of lemon curd - irresistible. It's part of whatever attracts me about thick cut orange marmalade , John Hedgecoe's photography how - to's , and the group of writers and such including Robert Frost. Just a slight foreign , exotic tinge to the northeast Alabama -northern Geogia - east Tennessee-western North Carolina , plus more books than down here per capita. Maybe already mentioned this - O how unlike me - but I ordered Tsula a wool pooch coat in te tartan of my Cherokee Grandmother's  Scot Grandfather's clan & even sept. She is so endearingly conked out at my feet while I go a- geekin' through the gloaming , up and down the stoney glen. Ah , a Welsh Corgi named "Fox" in Tsalagi , you see?

      Good friends are a dime per molecule.
