Hi, and hello. After a few years of having to pay attention to some of life's demands that we all face as we age more or less gracefully, I am happy to rejoin the forum ( even though I use a run on sentence to do so). Hope to be able to contribute as well as learn as I get back up to speed. Thinned the herd in my safe, and have just finished restocking. It feels good to be back among friends.

Welcome back. A friendly word of advice: Since you've been away for so long, look at some of the pinned threads in the lounge, specifically the "Donald Trump is a first-rate ass clown, but..." thread.
It should help you figure out which way this forum leans so that your return won't be short-lived.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
