  Annie K.: <Diademas> Happy New year!

Yes, just out of the blue. ;)

Jun-10-14  Shams: It's a long way to Seattle from Florida, but if you make it up here be sure to meet me for a game. Seattle and Bergen are sister cities!

Don't forget to buy a lot of guns for when you're in Florida. You won't really get a feel for the place unless you shoot at least one person on your vacation.

  thegoodanarchist: How long has your forum been reopened?

Looks like you closed in early 2015, or even sooner? And maybe reopened very recently?

I am always curious about irrelevant trivia :)

<Diademas: PS! You will have to excuse my poor English, it is after all not my native language.>

But I must say, your avatar makes up for poor English!

Who cannot help but love this giant green grinning creature?

Who cares if his English is good or bad? He is big! He is green! He is smiling ear to ear!

Children most of all will love this giant green smiling creature!

You have wandered onto the Rogoff forum!

Please be alert, it is rough in there. Things can get nasty and rude in there.

One of my favorite posters is <offramp>

Please read his profile, to see his advice about the Rogoff page!

  thegoodanarchist: I have a mundane question for you.

I would like to know what is the climate in Bergen during the Summer?

I do not have air conditioning in my house, but sometimes it is too warm at night to cool down the house. So I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt, but still a little too warm.

In my imagination, everything is better in places where I am not living :)
