No, the old-timers are agitating for the smashable Christmas lights that last graced the site sometime around 1937.

And quite possibly the only time I'll ever take it as a compliment. Time will tell on that I suppose.

x100 ^

In the old days, I'd eagerly sign on daily to see the on- and off-topic, informative, silly posts by all my scooter-riding pals. Even enjoyed (some of) the shit stirring.
It got to the point where I kind of dreaded of showing up to see the black banner.

I love and miss Julie, Ashrat, Arno, Judy, Al, Bitza, Vader, Rolf, Waid / Scooter Daddy, John Gerber and JimH. Godspeed all.

I know it's almost as vexing as requesting the revival of holiday lights, but let me take this opportunity to thank The Petty Tyrant and all his minions for keeping the site the warm and welcoming clubhouse it has always been. Hugs and love to you and yours.

Christmas decorations should only go up on Christmas Eve, and they should stay up until Twelfth Night (January 6th).

That's some Dickensian bullshit if I ever heard it.



Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving. And since you don't have Thanksgiving over there...
