Postings counted Sun, 10/26/03 7:07 PM (permalink)
Maybe someone could shed a bit of light on just how successive postings are counted. A few weeks ago I was up to "48 posts". Earlier today I noted that my most recent post made just today was # 47. At this rate I'll always be a junior burger!!

    I never looked at the count before, I guess I thought the electronic computer counts were accurate.

    Doesn't seem to matter much anyway, unless you're part of the "in" crowd

        Then, the final ignominy: Boca Burger!

        I've always assumed the count was done by computer, hence infallible.

              making a lot of postings is no feather in one's cap. Most of us in the triple digets are just old farts with too much time on our hands...

                    Thank you kind sir. But I do resemble the remark about too much time on one's hands.....

                      OK OK I let Elise slip by me on the counts, so she could take this abuse...Fat lotta good it did me!! I'm 60 So I qualify as Old... I'm retired, but making a valiant effort at becoming an outstanding participant in the "Bums of America" union. I do teach one class during the Spring Term each year, to give me something to do when the weather really sucks. I have enough Internal "steam" to qualify for the rest of the label. As Harry used to say, "If you can't stand the smell, don't give the old guy Beans for dinner."

                        Well me too! I don't wanna be old either! I am having a difficult time accepting "middle-aged"!

                        Checking in here throughout my workday gives me a break from what I do, which is basically taking medical records about horrible things that have happened to people and turning it into "a story".

                        Besides, I love the topics. I have learned about so many regional foods and recipes I can't wait to try.

                          Clothier, you're not old enough to be an old fart....you're just a fart
                          Also just remember: "Old age and Treachery beats Youth and Skill everytime!

                            I I think the progression is curmudgeon, senior citizen (good for discounts) , old fart, and geezer. There may be some steps I'm missing in there and I welcome any additions from all of you out there.

                            Let's face it, LLchef, there was a time when we had much better things to do with a few minutes of stolen liesure time than to mess around on the internet- and it wasn't food that was on our minds. But, anyone who enjoys life as much as you obviously do will never grow old.

                            BTW: Is there anyone else out there who is older than I, still not on a diet, in reasonably good health, and enjoying life? I'll be 76 in three weeks, born on Thanksgiving day.
                            You may all wish me a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on November 24th.

                              Kristi,
                              The song never tells you that - only that they got their own way of walkin' and their own way of talkin', that they make every minute count, that their share is the biggest amount, and that "some guys imitate us, but the original's still the greatest." - SAY! That describes this website and these forums to a "T", doesn't it?

                              P. S. The "In" Crowd was by Dobie Gray. I have the 45 and the LP. And, on the topic, I can assure you from knowing him secondhand through several Nashville friends that the man dearly loves good home cooking! The original IS still the greatest!

                                Hey Seafarer, way to go! 76 and computer-literate!! Really, I mean it. It's great to have you contribute to the site. I hope that I'll still be around thirty years from now when I reach your age.
                                Oh and by the way, I thought I'd post this just to continue my trek to Double Cheeseburger...lol.

                                      Seafarer, thanks for the compliment about never growing old. My uncle that sent me to cooking school in Paris is now going on 81, still golfs like a pro (78 or so for 18 holes) can beat the snot out of me in tennis, can make a gourmet meal, bake a cake or a pie or whatever! We'll all pitch in and send you a collective B-day cake on the 24th!!!! Whatever you're doing is working.....as my Father who is your age told me a long time ago: Everything in moderation. Amen. God Bless ya.

                                        I do find it interesting that regardless of the "generation gap" differences among the folks who post here, and the lifestyle and regional differences also, that I have no reservations (pun intended) about checking out an establishment recommended by y'all. Old-Young, Yankee or Cracker or SoCal freak, Up-scale steaks and White Castles, There is a common enjoyable activity that we share. AND that my friends is worth a lot in today's world.
                                        Seafarer, To give you something to look forward to... my 91 yr old Mother communicates with us mostly thru email using her Web-TV. She doesn't want to mess with her computer much anymore, except to write to some of her non-computer operating friends...but the Web-TV gives her contact with the family and allows for the kids and grand kids to share photos with her on almost a daily basis. She recently did a 14 day cruise from L A thru the Panama Canal. When we asked if she had someone going with her, she told us she was going to accompany one of her older friends. Further checking revealed that the friend was 104, and the two of them were going to "pick up sailor's"...direct quote. I should live so long !

                                          Thanks for your great explanation of the curmudgeon-senior citizen-old far-geezer continuum, Seafarer. Its the best explanation of this stage of life that I've ever seen. At age 68, know I'm chronologicaly somewhere in the senior citizen-old fart area but thankful I'm not there yet and hope I have a way to go before arrive at those stages as far as health-interests-attitude go. And after seeing your posts and reading of your uncle and dad, lleechef, and of your mom, Mr. Mayor, I'm inspired and a bit more hopeful that such will indeed be the case.

                                            He is the guy that did "Drift Away" in the early seventies. Kind of a one hit wonder, but "Drift Away" was a great soul/pop crossover. He also did a nice version of "Dark Side of the Street" a few years later, but I can't quite place the date.

I'm retired, but making a valiant effort at becoming an outstanding participant in the "Bums of America" union. I do teach one class during the Spring Term each year, to give me something to do when the weather really sucks. I have enough Internal "steam" to qualify for the rest of the label. As Harry used to say, "If you can't stand the smell, don't give the old guy Beans for dinner."


                                              Humph, I'm gone for one week and you're misbehaving already! I'm just going to have to check with the hall monitors about this...who was taking names?

                                                        The Sundancer is 62 and to tell you the truth, I still feel, react, and have the same desires with everything that I had when I was 18. The only difference is I am much older chronologically. My brains does not seem to know the difference.

                                                        I want the same food, I want to do the same things and occasionally I want the same things as I did back last summer when I was a child.

                                                        Age is a problem as my weight has to be observed much more carefully, my cholestrol controlled with drugs, BP has to be controlled and I approach life a bit differently.

                                                        I sincerely wish I could eat like I did when I started my current job back in 1963. They use to call me gone ass cause when I started this job, I weighed 125 pounds. That did not last long cause when I went in the military, I weighed 125 and I came out I weighed 150. It has been downhill ever since. A few years ago, I weighed 235 and now I am 197 due to Atkins.

                                                        Getting old ain't easy and it is not all it is cranked up to be. However I still have my nightly libations and I avoid things that I totally enjoy such as Krispy Kreme, Krystal's and etc.

                                                          P. S. I think that Dobie Gray later hit one of y'all mentioned was done for Capricorn Records in the 1970's. Dobie's one of the few people I can think of who was a one-hit-wonder twice: "The 'In' Crowd" and "Drift Away." As far as I know, he's alive and well in Nashville.
