Is it Megatron? Oh I do hope it's Megatron - Mo Kargas

Things have been going so well for me for the last year (for the most part) that I keep waiting for disaster to hit. And instead of disaster, I end up with another raise! I am now making double what I was at this time last year.
And what's more, I just landed a one-off side job building a site for the parent company, and they insist on paying me double my asking price. - April Russo
kickazz! - Big Joe Silence
YES! Nice work - Mo Kargas
BOOM! *does a little dance* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Nice! - bentley
That's great! - Stephan from iPhone
Fantastic! - Spidra Webster
*throws confetti* Woohoo! - Heather
I'm really happy for you, April. Congrats! - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Congratulations, April! And thank you for sharing your good news :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Websites built with Dreamweaver. I suppose it could have been worse - it could be FrontPage.
oooh, between that and the cold meds, I just had a very nasty flashback. {{{{shudder}}}} - Half Pint
Frontpage. Good. Grief. - Mo Kargas
But wait, there's more! I was told, "I'm very happy with my website, I don't want to change it." At least the person listened & agreed with me when I suggested one key change. - Corinne L
But... Front Page Extensions! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I used to build sites with Dreamweaver. Never with FrontPage. Is that still a thing? - Ian May
For some folks, apparently so. - Corinne L
Emily: What's that smell? *sniffs* Probly just my fart. #fb
That's gotta make you proud. ;D - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
stuff like this makes me wonder if our families are related to each other. TOO SIMILAR. - Big Joe Silence
Imagine how much fun our offspring would have together??! - Melly
mayhem and riot and fart jokes and singing and we'd all be deaf and killed by cute. - Big Joe Silence
oh, and competitive farting. multiple categories. - Big Joe Silence
My wife is always spraying Lysol under the covers. - Ian May

It's hard enough trouble shooting tech for someone who isn't confident with tech without other non-tech savvy people jumping in with what they've kinda heard or how they think is should work.
Did you try turning it off and turning it back on again? - Melly
I was reading the fricken manual to the person and another person chimed in telling me to do that part we did 4 minutes ago (never mind what she told me was wrong). I had to stop, explain why that person was wrong to the person I was helping and reassure them the manual I was looking at was legitimate - Johnny from iPhone

Way too much solider worship in my feed. I get it's a big part of white Western culture, but the whole "continuing to sacrifice for our freedom" is hogwash. Being sent to war as a salaried soldier, to kill mostly civilians via invasions and conflicts that demonstrably have nothing to do with keeping people "free" at home.
Unless it's the freedom to consume more oil products.That said, not sure why I'm surprised with war economies. Especially ones where the native populations sacrifice those hard fought rights, left right and center by not voting. - Mo Kargas

Parents who watch their kid scream at you to shut up, and then get upset when you tell the kid to be respectful to adults.
Parents nowadays are awful - Shevonne from iPhone
Recently heard "Come here, Charmaine, you f***ING little bitch, before I kick your f**ING head in". Charmaine was about three. Mother looked about 22. No wonder Kids are growing up the way some are - Ian May

3 project managers and 1 developer. Anyone seeing the issue here?
3 managers too many? ;) - Jemm

You know, for a dead social network, FF is damn active. More than a hundred likes for the wonderful news of the birth of a beautiful baby girl to two amazing people. I don't see 100+ likes/favorites/retweets/+1s for things my friends post on any other social media site outside of FB (and not often on FB).
Same goes for the Italian and Turkish communities. Day or night, there's always someone to talk to, on FF. - marta from FFHound(roid)!
That's good to hear, Marta. I wish I spoke Italian and Turkish! - Stephen Mack
@Stephen, I think FF is much more social in terms of genuine connections. There are many peeps here that I have never met , but its like I know them 4ever , kinda thingy. We are sharing our lives here.. not content !! Thats the core difference between FF and other Social sites. - Peter Dawson
Stephen: if you want to pick up a bit of conversational Italian, Duolingo is a great (free) app for learning. - Bren from iPhone
I dip in and out. I'd use FF a whole lot more if there was a good app for my cellphone. The screen is too small to use the web site, which is fine on my desktop, laptop, and tablet. - Ian May
FFHound is good. - Bren from iPhone

Oh persimmons, where have you been all my life?
Had some in a salad at a Halloween party, then someone gave me a Fuyu this past weekend. I'm now chowing down on a salad with red leaf lettuce, diced persimmon, turkey bacon, hard boiled egg, sliced almonds, dried orange cranberries, and balsamic vinaigrette. SO GOOD. - Corinne L
Interesting. I never thought of putting persimmon in a salad. I love Hachiya persimmons, but they're messy. I bought some Fuyus this week at 2 lbs for 99¢ and dehydrated them. Love dehydrated persimmons. But this salad idea is intriguing. - Spidra Webster
It is fantastic. I love sweet and tart and crunchy in my salads so the persimmon is perfect. - Corinne L
Dehydrated permissions are tasty. - Rodfather from Android
I will have to try those next. - Corinne L
My wife's aunt in Brea had a persimmon tree in her back yard, and she got me picking bucketfuls of them one afternoon. Rarely see them here and they're mighty expensive - Ian May
Tonight I ran into the executive chef for Grange, one of the swankier restaurants here in Sac. We were chatting with a third person about discovering new foods. I told him about this salad, and his face lit up and he said "That sounds awesome!" So I'm feeling pretty cool right about now. - Corinne L

I spent the morning with my parents at the hospital as my Dad underwent some routine, minor surgery (they removed a cataract). However, as he is a cancer survivor, and diabetic, there isn't really any "minor" surgery. I'm very happy to say he's come out of it very well.
I'm sad to say that it was a bit of a first for me. My father's always given the impression he's a stoic type, and doesn't want any fuss. For years, I indulged him. But the main reason I moved to Victoria was to be near them, and help. So, I insisted. I could tell he appreciated it. - Brent Schaus
I think his stoicism is like those gift-giving traditions where you have to offer three times, kind of thing. He'll say, "Don't bother... it's not a big deal... you don't need to take time off of work..." Yes, Dad, I will bother. It is a big deal, and I'm happy to take the time off work to be there. - Brent Schaus
Aw, you're a good son. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
^^this. I think as we grow older, and our parents grow older, we all realize that having an on-call support team is important. We may not say it out loud, but we're all thinking it. - Corinne L
Thanks, Lisa. I'm trying... I'm truly trying to make up for lost time. - Brent Schaus
Cherish each moment. My parents moved away for retirement 25 years worth. We moved them back in '09. The last 2.5 of my dad's health were the most stressful but I wouldn't trade the time I got to spend with him. - Janet from FFHound!
Aww, inside I bet he's a softie. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yeah, he is... he's been a retired cop long enough now that much of the trauma and effects of that life have dissipated. He's even at the point where he says he would have rather been a teacher. He's a bit of a gentle giant type now :) - Brent Schaus

I'm a little bit excited that a book review I wrote is going to be published on the SAHM website tomorrow. It's no literary masterpiece, and it even contains some horribly cliched phrases, but it's the first "thing" I've written in YEARS, so YAY! :oD
Good job (I'm sure) :) - Eivind

It's not that difficult to look up the proper spelling of cities if you're going to reference them in a TV show or movie. That thing called the Internet is really good for this type of task.
It's a silly bitchfest item, but sloppy and/or nonexistent research irritates me so much. - Corinne L

Time to remove all the "illegal" stuff from my work computer and pack up my retirement gifts and go home.
Woohoo! - Shevonne
cheers and hugs! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

Yay! - Anne Bouey from iPhone
The idea that what works for you, works for everybody. And if someone does something different, that they are maligned for not doing things as you do. Everyone's different. Everyone has worth. Everyone matters. Open your eyes, your hearts, and your minds enough to give people a chance.
So fucking tired of close-minded people who purport to be anything but. Jesus. - Derrick
"Everyone matters" 👍 ✌ - JB from iPhone

If you're simultaneously complaining that the state patrol is always running enforcement stuff around here, and that people around here don't speed fast enough for you, you may have a cognitive dissonance problem.

London is one of the largest urban areas in Europe. Its boundaries were set by the creation of Greater London in 1965, covering the 32 London boroughs and the City of London. Almost two-thirds of it is green space and wetlands. - Halil from Bookmarklet
2/3! :o - Halil
I currently live in a West London suburb. Near Heathrow airport actually. There are some wonderful little pockets of countryside all over the area. - Ian May

Happy Birthday to my lovely wife!

we went to her fave Korean BBQ place for lunch and then loaded up at the nearby Super H-Mart. later on we all went for a leisurely swim before dinner. - Big Joe Silence
now, of course, the kids are conked out and she and i were taking turns kneading the cramps out of each others legs before she finally called it a night. romance ain't dead, folks. :P - Big Joe Silence
Was there kimchi? - Mo Kargas
oh, forgot to mention the awesome cake we got her. our youngest also picked out some lovely flowers which now reside in a vase on the dinner table.. - Big Joe Silence
@Mo: kimchi and other related things. lunch was delightful. - Big Joe Silence

A while back Sophie spotted an old music cassette player. She looked at me like I was crazy when I demonstrated how you had to rotate the thing for another few songs. With her 64GB iDevice in hand she just can't wrap her head around that. But dad, it doesn't even have games. Or photos. Or movies. Or FaceTime. #saturdayff
We've just set up a turntable and got out our old LPs. The kids. They mock. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
But, at the same time, they are interested in the music. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
We don't have any of our vinyl records anymore. I'm a purger. :) - Stephan from iPhone
She has only seen also seen the corded and cordless phones outside our home. We don't own a VCR. - Stephan from iPhone
boy her head would really explode if you showed her an 8 track - VALZONE#NEWHIP
Believe it or not but we have one of those in the barn (came with the property). Just no cassettes. :) - Stephan from iPhone
We were going somewhere last night, and my wife saw a VHS cassette on the side of the road. I remarked that Olivia (my 3-year-old) will never understand why we used such antiquated technology. - Jonathan Disher
Show her a gramophone or Edison phonograph :D - Mo Kargas
Jonathan, that's exactly right. The gap between myself and my parents seem to be less than the technological gap between myself and my daughters. I'm thinking that I have to look for a museum that I can take her to. - Stephan from iPhone
Sometimes I feel that when we had less technology, we were more likely to watch or listen to something and enjoy it, without the dilemma of which to choose! - Ian May from Android
True. On the other hand, no more fiddling with the media itself, but easy selection. - Stephan from iPhone
Last time we went to the Smithsonian we checked out an exhibit of old household appliances: toasters, heating pads, cameras, radios etc. Comments ranged from "hey I had that when I was a kid" (my kid) to "hey I'm still using one of those" (me). - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
The ultrasound machine we had used for years and finally retired was older than the one in the Smithsonian! - Janet
I've worked with equipment like that too (not ultrasound). "Old" is such a relative term. - Stephan from iPhone
It doesn't have to be anything more than someone saying, "I got you. Man, I got you." to help wash away the stress. Money can be taken away, material things can be stolen, lost, or broken, but the outstretched hand of a friend offering merely their time, love, and friendship, when you feel you've lost the world, is priceless.
