ma'am,

I am sure the mods had a good reason for shutting down the 800 post thread It probably had something to do with available forum space.

Thanks,

If space management is the issue, (rather than the frivolity of the postings,) perhaps "the powers that be" would let the banter continue here in the Whine Cellar if we break it into monthly threads or some such thing. The older posts would regularly drift out of sight, and the "bits and bytes" aspect might be easier to handle. I'm certain that no one wants to create any technical difficulties.

In any case, on behalf of all the "Singles thread" posters, I'd like to express our gratitude to Mr. Szabo, the Provost, Sgt. Pepper, Mr. Pritchett, and any and all other anonymous moderators and administrators for their patience and forbearance over the past several months. The thread has allowed many of us to meet each other, both online and in person, when we would not otherwise have had that opportunity. Thank you all.

I think it was more due to the sheer number of posts and how difficult it makes the thread to navigate. Frankly, I very surprised that the provost let it get anywhere near the size that it did; normally he closes threads before they even get half that size. I do like the idea of a continuing series of threads where a new one gets started the first of each month to continue the various discussions. Just a suggestion.

That's about what I had in mind. If there are no objections from the other authorities, we'd appreciate the chance to see how it works.

Good morning everyone. Haven't been able to post for awhile. Been very busy lately. Did do a living history this past weekend. I'm a member of the "Southern Belles Tatting Society" and we had over 700 4th-5th graders come through our living history exhibit on Friday. Phew, was I tired after that. I got a real kick out of explaining why "ladies" wore gloves all the time and how different it was from today. The children throught it was really funny that "ladies" didn't expose their ankles.

Back to work for me....have a wonderful day!

:mad: ...Gruel again. I guess they think here at the home that dentures can't chew steak anymore.

In my worldly travels I found that beside we Yanks the Aussies, Kiwis, Canucks and Brits (mostly Scots) can laugh at theirselves. Political correctness has destroyed alot of good humour so much that I have found with todays attitudes tend to infiltrate into our hobby of living history. So even though we might be munching down on hardtack we have to watch what we say about it among those we don't know that's eating it also.

I'm off to Jefferson Barracks today for a meet-up with some of my old 2nd Dragoons buddies. We're too old and stubborn to worry about what we say when we start talking about our times in war with Mexico. ;)

"Reenactor Singles" was good, but I think the thread has evolved into something unlike anything Starbuck ever envisioned. [Where are you, anyway, Nathan?]

"Soldiers & Ladies" is fine, too, but doesn't include the civilian gentlemen who might care to join in.

Mark, we could always try to change the subject...

Bryan had asked earlier whether anyone had any fun events coming up this weekend. (Or soon.) (Or the rest of 'the season.') How about that?

BTW, Bryan, I saw on the NPS/Gettysburg website that Sharpshooters are doing living history presentations there on several upcoming weekends. Are you involved with that? Maybe I'll bring you some cookies...

See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ACWreenactor_singles/
(founded July 8, 2006, specifically in response to requests on this forum)

I really don't think this forum was set up as a dating service for CW reenactors.
No, but the "Singles" thread in the civilian forum started as a direct request for something similar (way back in April), and grew as people began to appreciate having a way to make more informal contact.

Does this conversation contribute at all to researching or have anything to do with the time period between 1861-1865, otherwise known as the American Civil War???In fact, as a direct result of some exchanges in the "Singles" thread, I learned that my ggg-grandfather was with Morgan's Raiders. [Thanks again, William.] I've been told that's "cool." But maybe that's not 'serious' information?

Try to think about this for at least ten minutes and if you're still not convinced, think about it some more.I think more quickly than that, most of the time. ;)
Please, for the love of everyone's sanity, PLEASE move this to your own forum or e-list.

[I've heard that it's healthy to be able to laugh at oneself, and not take oneself too seriously...

You know it's really not that hard to start your own yahoo group.PLEASE????I do know. I did it months ago, and the link has been posted in the "Singles" thread at least three times. Your comments have been made without your being fully informed.

This and that other huge thread is pretty hard not to miss. I just skimmed through parts of it.As I said just above, your comments have been made without your being fully informed.
In my opinion, it's a waste of time to read the whole thing.
Then, by all means, don't try. It took five months to create, and lots of folks had fun contributing to it (797 posts.) And even more had fun reading it (15, 945 views, as I write this.)
But I will say no more. Obviously I'm the ONLY one who thinks this thread doesn't belong here. :rolleyes: Perhaps, or perhaps not. But yours is the first 'serious' objection posted since the thread began in April.

Anna, I'm sorry you feel pressured to read it all. You really don't need to follow every thread. And this one is supposed to be all in fun. And now it's even in the Whine Cellar. ;) But if you're not amused by it, 'just say no' and don't click to open the thread. And please never visit the OTB. :twisted:

Sorry, I will say no more. Y'all continue doing your thing and taking up extra space on this forum if you must.

Regarding the "Singles" thread:

I think this holds the all time record for length of service, number of posts and number of views. Time to carry these discussions to new threads.

Believe me, you're not the only one who is fed up with the way these posts have turned. (Why do you think those fellows groaned "not again" ??) Sure, there were interesting nuggets of info within the thread (who knew that prostitute impressions were so much fun to read about!) but most of it was dialogue between one or two folks. Things like that need to be carried off forum. Besides, the moderators have enough to worry with on the "Perryville Registration" thread than have to slog through these posts.

As we have been reminded elsewhere, if everyone could remember that we are guests seated at Mr. Szabo's dining table, perhaps we could avoid any more of our own Great Unpleasantness.

That said, please take a deep breath and repeat after me:

This is the Whine Cellar. (This is the Whine Cellar.)
No one is forcing me to be here. (No one is forcing me to be here.)
No one is forcing me to read anything. (No one is forcing me to read anything.)
No one is expecting me to read anything. (No one is expecting me to read anything.)
I am powerful. (I am powerful.)
I can leave here with one click of my finger. (I can leave here with one click of my finger.)
[Click.]

Actually, it's posts like this that'll do more to further the unpleasantness than anything else. Responses have triggered other responses that are starting to mirror the General Discussion battles.

Both "sides" have points. On the one hand, being the whine cellar, the thread surely qualifies. However, it has very little to do with the civil war and reenacting and, from the outside looking in, can look like an e-harmony.com section for reenactors or myspace.com chatroom. Personally, I can see where others think it should be continued on a different forum. That may seem a bit hypocritical from one who has contributed to the "fun" of the threads, but, it is what it is. It's not meant as a rebuke, just an observation.

Now that I've offended everyone with my incisive thoughts, I'll be in the wardroom.....

But let me say I have had to get glasses this year, and the first thing I noticed that my six pac has turned into a keg. My wife has made me get hearing aids so I can here her. And the dentist has more of my teeth than I do. Now it sounds like it will only get worse. Oh my my

NASHVILLE DISPATCH, December 28, 1862, p.4, c. 1-3

Humors of the War. Letter from Orpheus C. Kerr, Histo-rian of the Mackerel Brigade. From the New York Sunday Mercury.

…Being thus possessed of a reverence for that sex, whose bonnets remind me of cake-baskets, I cannot refrain from frowning indignantly upon that horrible spirit of national tyranny which inspired Sergeant O’Pake, of the demoralized Mackerel Brigade, to issue the following

General Order,

For the purpose of simplifying national strategy to those conservative women of America who, while in the pursuit of happiness as guaranteed by the Constitution, desire to visit the Southern Confederacy, it is ordered that they shall answer the following paternal questions before passing the lines of the Mackerel brigade:

I - For how many years has your age been Just Twenty-two?

II – How many novels do you consume per week?

III – Were you ever complained of to the authorities for inordinate piano forte playing?

IV – Do you work slippers for the heathen?

V – If so; for what He then?

VI – What newspaper “Marriages and Deaths” do you consider the best?

VII – In selecting a church to attend, what colored prayer-book do you find most becoming to your complexion?

VIII – How much display of neck do you consider necessary to indicate a Modesty which shrinks from showing an ancle? (sic)

IX – Did you ever stoop to Folly? Or is it folly alone that stoops to you?

X – Did you ever eat as much as you wanted at dinner, when members of the opposite sex were opposite?

It is also ordered that no female visitor to the celebrated Southern Confederacy shall carry more than eight large trunks and a bonnet box for each month in the year; and that no female shall pass the line whose dimensions in full dress exceed the ordinary space between two pickets, as the latter will, on no account, be permitted to edge away from the stations at this trying crisis in the history of our distracted country.
O’Pake
Sergeant, Mackerel Brigade.

Cancer


CANCER (June 21 to July 22):
While having a tough shell-like exterior, Cancer chickens are very sensitive and vulnerable. They have very delicate emotions, and are always attuned to their environment and the feelings of those around them. They have a constant and urgent need to feel safe and always act defensively. They will only cross the road when there is danger to themselves or others on this side.

Taurus


TAURUS (April 20 to May 20):
Taurus chickens are strong willed and have a down to earth attitude toward life. They are overly interested in material things and have a real need for security. They feel unsettled unless comfortable. They will cross only if there is more security on the other side or to obtain material possessions.

Carole,
This isn't just a new job but a whole new line of work. I've been selected for our ironworkers locals apprenticeship program. The 800 lb gorilla in the corner of the room Is that I don't know when ill start; I know that I have a week of classes next week that I have to have before they can send me out as part of the workforce. Being a painter, it'll take about three weeks to find someone to take my place; and they did bend over backwards to make sure that I had a job to come back to the last time I got caught driving under suspension and ended up with five days in jail and 15 days of litter pickup (before you ask, yes I've learned my lesson). So I'm very stressed balancing the two and trying to do the right thing........... And its not making me very good company at times, I'm afraid. Take me with a grain of salt and ill be back in good spirits fairly soon (I hope).

THOUGHTS ON DOMESTIC LIFE OR MARRIAGE VINDICATED AND FREE LOVE EXPOSED.
BY NELSON SIZER
NEW YORK 1858

PG 6
Very few persons in society voluntarily lead a life of celibacy, and although the surly bachelor may sneer at the idea of matrimony, yet allow me to remark that, if he has chosen that mode of life, from any cause, save his conscious unworthiness of a wife, he has little to expect from me on this occasion. Is he destitute of the common sympathies of our nature? Has he no heart to feel the tender witchery of female charms; or, is it encased in steel, so that Cupid’s dart cannot perforate it; or, is he too indolent, or too miserly to support a wife? He ought to remember that he is indebted to the institution of marriage for a home, even, and a place to lay his head. He is usually a supernumerary in some family where he may, at least, hang up his hat and cane and call it home. But those who advocate a life of celibacy should be regarded by all good citizens, as enemies to one of the best institutions, and to the general well-being of society. With such persons, we have nothing to do, but shall confine our remarks to those, who, having a proper estimate of this relation, are seeking a companion, such as shall divide the sorrows and double the joys of life.

A lady, for example, of a kind disposition; the gushing fountain of whose heart sends forth a flood of benevolence and love as warm and free as the balmy breath of spring, who has been so unfortunate as to wed an arch and smiling hypocrite; one who is a total stranger to the noble sentiment of affection and whose heart is frigid as an iceberg; with such anyone, is it possible that she can be happy? In vain she may weep and hope; a dreary region of suffering and sorrow is her portion, till she, broken-hearted, quits her vale of tears for the regions of the blest. Well may we shed a tear of pity over her hard lot; the blighted hopes of her young heart; her living immuration in a nuptial prison; her worse than Hindoo sacrifice.

...and when did I ever say I practice celebacy? I have never and never will. I love the ladies, always have and always will. I have already made plans to die at the age of 102 in bed from a heart attack with a virgin (of legal age) if I can find one. ;) But!!!!!! committing to marriage was something I gave up a few years back. I was burned too many times and I learned my lesson...finally. I have no regrets or guilt. ;)

Ya know Lizzy darlin that the creation of the internet came along at the right time in my life. Forums, like this one, where there is intertwinning of the sexes is a great place to fill the minds of the ladies of forthcoming dinner with wine and candlelight and charming the ladies with my exploits of bravado on the field of battle...knowing quite well that maybe someday, especially in this hobby, our faces will meet and by that time they won't care how old and ugly I am....:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
