We hope all will appear, at least briefly.
You are invited to join us throughout the day, for what may be the last of peaceful and expected times as we know it... a New Year's Eve chat gathering. Please ensure your young friend is wearing a festive mask.
All topics will be very open, legal allowances noted.
I don't need to tell anyone who pays attention. 2024 is going to be a helluva year. It seems destined for chaos, no matter which way pendulums might swing.
As such, we may not even have internet as we know it by 12/31/24, so let us all just step back and take time to gather and remember the years in friendship and good cheer. Encourage one another to stay aware, prepared, mutually helpful and strong.
There will be virtual champange and virtual cheese. Unfortunately, we waited too long to book, so there will be no loli-rentals this year (audible groans). We hung up on the stateside Mexican cartel offering to fill the void for us, just because anyone with a shred of honor or dignity has a definite red line.
Happy New Year! :)
Unless someone else carries on, I will be closing the chat 12:15am Hawaiian time, 1/1/24.
