Can we have a vote?

Can I be perfectly crass and ask if my proposal thread could be added to the "memoirs" folder? It's called "In-Laws...A different take, perhaps."

Hi Chiff, I'd vote for its inclusion! (Thought it was already here - just shows how observant I am!)

BTW, I think maybe we need a process for moving stuff into this folder that's a little more reliable/formal/democratic/whatever than me emailing the SYSOP and asking (that's how the Boeing 747 thread, as well as your restaurant closing saga got here. Asked for Boeing because too much great info there to risk its loss.)

Sure, whatever you want is ok by me.

BTW, I vote no on the 747 one. I don't know what that has to do with memoirs.

Nothing really - but then neither do dogs in elk. I just thought that Peter's extensive essays on plane safety deserved to be preserved, so I asked the SYSOP, and the rest, as they say, is history.

whoops! major points off. Just noticed that dogs in elk didn't make the cut either. Oh well. If it bothers you, MC, ask to have it removed.

Chiff, I love the romance threads, so I vote for yours.

Li, maybe the title of this folder needs an ", etc." or "and other keeper stuff" added at the end.

Jean, at least the elk thing is food related :-) LOL

MC, one should be so lucky that your graciousness is contagious.

As for Boeing, Peter's teachings have helped me (well, AFAIK until I fly, then we'll see), and they helped Sally, too. He has been very generous with his time and effort and it should not risk getting lost, especially if it will help someone else overcome an unreasonable fear.

Frankly, I don't care much where anything appears if the search function works :-)

I vote for chiffy's proposal - It was so darn clever, so darn sweet, and darn it, he followed through and made an honest woman out of her!

Li - or sysops, or whoever - one question...is there any way that we can avoid marking every message in a thread that is moved as "new"? It's not too bad with cable modem or DSL, but I've tried to check msgs at younger DD's and it can take forever to download a gazillion msgs that I've already read.

I just tried to import those two threads (in-laws and elk) but was unable. I've asked Mark to check on why. Stay tuned.

MadMom, I don't know how to avoid that, but I'll see if Mark (our sysop) does.

Elk/almond milk is now here.

Chiff, can you tell me again where the in-law thread is? I just had it and now that I'm able to import discussions again I can't find it. Sorry.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the dog/elk saga. I'm wiping the tears off my cheeks and hoping my office mates don't think I'm insane because of the stifled giggles coming from my office. I may never be able to keep a straight face again when I hear the word "vibrato."

Sanderson, I love what you said about the junk drawer! (-you mean only 1 junk drawer,though?)
