      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

    This tribe came up in conversation yesterday. I was feeling nostalgic. Go figure.
  2. plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

    Well, I have missed racing. This injury I am still recovering from was a doozy. It is most challenging having been practically kill proof to being careful. Damn! This weakness and fear will be shaken off...it is already happening. I'm not surprised. LET'S DO IT! I'm in.
  3. plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

    I've been all over the place since I last dropped in here. However I have been back in one of my homes, Honolulu, since end of January, and will be leaving to go back to SFBA (northern California) soon. I need more of me! Aloha to you ropetrick! Always a pleasure.
  4. plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

    Yes, exactly. No, a few of us were reminiscing about the good ol' days.
  5. Hi every One! Miss you...well some of you. Checked out some threads in the main SA forum. Still lots of insults flung around, and general mayhem. Hahaha! the One, the Only hellion
  6. Brrrrrrrrrrr

    So, it took a month, and I'm starting to acclimatize. I had become such a weather wuss. This is what living in Hawai'i for 4 years does to a person. All I can say is I'm grateful that Northern California has been non-stop sunny and warm in the day time....I do have to put a fleece on at night though. People talked about rain and cold and shtuff, and that I wouldn't want to get a motorcycle here. Bah!
  7. Brrrrrrrrrrr

    "Salt on a slug"....about Woody....I'm still giggling about that one.
  8. Brrrrrrrrrrr

    20 here in the East Bay H haven't seen this sort of temps more than once or twice living here my whole life. Early December 09 we actually got snow in SF and it stuck in some places like Berkeley hills, Walnut Creek etc. That was the week before we closed on our house in the East Bay so didn't actually see it here at the new house but did watch snow flakes falling at our San Francisco condo it didn't stick in SF but it did in the East Bay. Neighbor up the street told me they had just moved in, have a steep driveway backed out of the garage and did the slip n slide down the driveway and ended up in the neighbors front yard across the street.. LOL That must have quite the scene. Well then, being that local friends thanked me for the warm weather I seem to have brought since I had arrived, now they might blame me for the cold. It's the seesaw effect. What goes up must come down. Hahaha!
  9. Brrrrrrrrrrr

    The temps dipped too quickly here in the Bay area (SF). Daytime it went from mid 70s to 40s.....brrrrrrrrr is right. And I am needing more time to acclimatize. There isn't enough fleece and wool in my wardrobe....yet.
  10. Oh now after reading all this and the sentimentality of it all, I have to go and see HR.

    Aloha Chicago sailors, If anyone is sailing in the next few days, I'm in town and would love to get out there. It's just too beautiful not to ask. Please PM me.

    Oh the humanity, Clean, think how you have traumatized that poor woman labelling the pic a reject! I will get my coat. I agree with Clean (walks to the bathroom to wash out mouth with soap and water). Rollerfurlers - horrible things - they shouldn't be allowed, unless you are single handing! Everything else looks wonderful! Tingling with anticipation - and it's the 2nd here! With hot women like that you think you'll have more than 1 hand free? Necesity is the mother of invention! I'm only disappointed because my photographer friend would have fallen to the floor if this had been published with yours truly on the cover. I hadn't alerted him. Although he found this and alerted me! Gotts love the interweb. This is an old beauty of a vessel that we had taken the owner out on to teach him a little bit about sailing that day. Photoshoot was spontaneous. Of course! The stunning camera and multi talented photographer made this possible. Thank you Mr. Clean and Mer again...perhaps next year we'll rock it out even more! The One, The Only, hellion ETA: ordered one just now....WHEE!

    OHMYGAWWWWWWWWWD! I was just alerted to check out this. Mr. Clean, and Mer, I am thrilled and beside myself that you considered this. Perhaps an SA burgee pasted onto that forestay would have been the clincher. However, I am so happy to be part of this and wish I had not dropped the ball years ago. Such is the life of a wanderer. The photographer is thrilled as well. Mahalo PP!! I hadn't had a chance to mention it to him, and as always, this is a such a small world. The fact that the Anarchettes calender is finally created to help Catherine is a wonder-full. Thank you all for your efforts. PS Dorag will you marry me?

    I believe you will like the shot that Mer has selected from the ones I sent her. Thanks Ajax. I cannot wait to see the final results myself. Beautiful wondrous sailing woman! YES!

    yay! will email the info soon as I can. It just ocurred to me I should have asked what I was counting myself in for...then again, after being stuck in BR since February without sailing, I don't care! Adorable!
