Say hi to Joe, EE. I remember him as one of the few snopesters who used his real name.

I shall. He retired out of the military over the summer. He's enjoying some much needed time off and is looking forward to his next career.

Glad you're doing well!

I'm a Facebook avoider, so can't keep up with anybody over there. (I spend too much time online already without getting into Facebook.)

Y'know, I was gonna write a diatribe about my mother's lack of boundries today in Rantidote, but when all is said and done, I'd rather just relax and read some happiness. The kitten academy site not working aside, I'm up for some happy if someone knows a good thread.

Trish if the links to the Kitten Academy stream aren't working in the thread, just go to YouTube and look up Kitten Academy. Lots of adrorableness there!

It is very nice to see people pop up that we haven't seen in ages. I often wonder about those who don't post anymore. I avoid FB like the plague, so I can't keep up there. I hope you all keep checking in at least occasionally.

I know we're not really supposed to do "me too" posts, but: everything Sylvanz just said.

I don't avoid Facebook, but I'm not friends with that many snopesters. I'd love it if the returnees had the time to stick around again.

I don't think JoeBentley will come back, he posts on another board and it's easy to find him, he hasn't changed screen names.

I think the last I seriously posted is when my mom died. My physically and mentally handicapped brother is doing well, our eldest brother moved to take care of him and they are doing well. J misses our mom though, he talks about his momma all the time and you can really see that it's taken its toll on him, but he is still pretty easy going and happy and really getting on the best he can.

My grandma is still alive and kicking, she still scares us from time to time. Her lungs are bad and is on oxygen 24/7 and coughs a lot, she is pretty weak but still manages to get herself out of bed and fix her food but she mainly just sits around and watches some christian station. She still thinks the snake oil salesmen she sees on that channel are going to improve her health, she is now taking some sort of drops that restore or replenses stem cells. I don't believe in any of that crap and I can rant all day about that crap.

Crest Theater! I went and saw Jumanji last week and I recommended to my parents to go see it in a second run theater. They go to Crest or Edmonds rather regularly, as did I, when I lived in Seattle. I notice it's now 4 USD for a movie, not 1.50. I think it's been a few years (decades) since I've been to either theater.

That's the same time Seattle's Crest Theater was built. And from the looks of Google's suggestions, there appears to be a Crest Theater in Los Angeles as well.

While it seems to have been a popular name, I don't see any indication that there was a chain. If there was, it was west coast (Fresno, Seattle, Sacramento, etc.).

In the next month or so they'll have Coco, so I want to go see that.

Last time I was there I don't recall there being multiple theaters. Then again, the last time was after Die Capacitrix (tickets were $2), but still a long time ago, to see Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle. That came out in 1994.

Unhijackably, my nephew's dog has gone missing. He lives in Tucson, and his dog is small. Given when she disappeared (between 2-7 am), I fear the worst (i.e., animal predation). But if you know anyone in the area, please ask them to keep on the lookout for a Chihuahua/dachsund mix, about 9 lbs, possibly wearing a green harness. She's a little shy, so approach gently. ETA: her name is Gretel.

I have some sort of rodent living in my kitchen. I'm getting mouse traps today, but I'm concerned it might not be a mouse, which scares the heck out of me. I've heard it a few times and the sounds it make sound too big for a mouse. Plus, the cat shows no interest which is a big red flag. She will go at tiny mice or birds, but anything of size she suddenly doesn't see.

Hopefully it is not an ROUS.

Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist.

(Is immediately tackled by an ROUS).
