Okay, I totally called it. Little Caesars, exactly like I said. I'm not as big of a pizza fan as I used to be, but I was hungry and therefore glad to see it. BH got home relatively early, but we still didn't watch anything as there was a hockey game he wanted to watch. Also, I sensed that he was in somewhat of a bad mood, and thought I should give him some space. I know SB would try to get him to talk about it, but that's not my cup of tea, nor my area of expertise.

Forum activity has decreased even more. It has slowly decreased from about 2015 on forward, but this past week has been extra slow, with today being (I think) a new record. That's okay, it makes my job easier. Although I don't know if it means that fewer poly newbies are getting the advice that they need.

This concludes my riport.

There are no plans for today, at least not right now. Hopefully we (the three of us) will eat out for dinner tonight. Eddie had his last class at the obedience school yesterday; he did well on his final exam and passed. SB will take him to a different school for his next semester, there were various things she didn't like about this school, e.g. it was too grubby.

For dinner last night, SB went to El Rey Burro and picked it up. I used a plate, knife, and fork for my (huge) veggie burrito. Way too messy to pick it up and eat it by hand. It's really good though. After dinner there was a hockey game on TV, but after the hockey game, BH and I watched GoT:S4E10, the last episode in that season. This concludes my riport.

The three of us went out yesterday around 2:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m., drove a little ways to eat at a place we like called China House (really good egg foo young), and after that went shopping at a certain Walmart "neighborhood market." Snowbunny caved in to temptation and picked out a pecan pie for us. An hour or so after we got home, she served each of us a slice heated with caramel drizzled on top. After that, Brother-Husband and I watched GoT:S5E1. Then with SB's help we figured out how to watch S8E1 via Amazon Prime.

Kevin, I don't read the journals very often - just a matter of time, or lack thereof. Lots of other interests, responsibilities, and obligations - as with most of us I'm certain.

But I did want to comment on your observation of declining forum activity over the last few years. I have found this to be true of a number of Internet discussion venues that I follow to varying degrees. I suspect that a lot of this had to do with migration of Internet discussion to the FB groups - which seems to have become the most popular venue for discussion on the Net. I am a member of several FB groups myself covering a wide variety of topics of interest. The discussion venues have definitely shifted over time - from pre-Net online venues such as Compuserve, to the Golden days of the Usenet - and the big listservs, then to forums of this style, Yahoo Groups, etc.... Now Facebook.

I use an alternate FB identity for the poly groups on FB - and belong to several, although I don't post much. For the most part, I see mostly (but not exclusively) millenials on the FB groups - and discussion seems to focus more on the social than the intellectual. There is some discussion of relationship issues, but not nearly at the level of depth that occurs here. But, then again, I only see a small sample relatively speaking, so I am sure there are others that are "deeper" so to speak.

And, although this group may not be as busy as in times past, I suspect it will continue to remain somewhat active for the more in depth discussion that occurs here. Anyway, just a thought or two. Al

You're probably right, Polyamory.com won't die out, it will still be here for the more in-depth discussions, while the lighter fare will probably (continue to) migrate over to Facebook. I am not big on Facebook groups, otherwise I might join one for my locality. I know there's at least one Seattle group. I guess I'll mostly just be here (on this forum) for anyone who comes here seeking feedback/help. That's good enough for me.

BH and I watched GoT:S5E2 a couple of days ago, but no episodes last night. SB cooked salmon for us yesterday for dinner, plus rice and veggies. We had some of Reed's Sweet Wine too. For dessert she sliced up a fresh pineapple, also there was ice cream in the freezer.

I'm pretty hungry right now, but determined to hang in there until dinner. A bottle of Irish cream sounds really good right now.

Outdoor temps continue to be on the cool side, too cool for opening windows. Come on now, it's April already.

A couple of YouTubes that this atheist finds hilarious:
"Dad, do we have to take them all?"

"Yes!!!"

SB made quiche yesterday for dinner. I admitted that I would prefer it without crust. SB took that news well, and said that she preferred for me to be honest. BH got home a bit later than usual, dinner was around 6:30 p.m., so we did not watch any episodes.

A couple more of those YouTubes:
Mind you, these are only funny if you don't mind making fun of God.

Turns out, yesterday I had a dental appointment. My first crown, yay! I guess it wasn't very bad. They certainly numbed me up well enough. And even that didn't hurt, as they applied a topical anesthetic first. In two weeks (May 2) I have one more appointment to put the finished crown in. Right now I just have a temporary crown.

The dentist is very conveniently located, within walking distance. But SB was kind enough to get off work early and drive me there. She also took care of the payment. Which was a little over $1000.00 (for both appointments). After all that, at my request we stopped at Tim's Pharmacy, which is right across the street from the dentist. We picked up a script for me, plus I got some allsorts licorice and white/milk chocolate covered coffee beans. Yes, it was all about me me me.

SB served us dinner a little before 6:30 p.m., the rest of the quiche plus sweet potato waffle fries. Starting at about 7:30 p.m., BH and I watched GoT:S5E3.

We don't have any special plans for Easter today, other than we might eat out at a casino for dinner tonight. BH and I will watch GoT:S8E2. Last night we watched S5E4. That's all, I didn't have a lot to tell you today. I am extra stressed-out today, for unknown reasons.

Well instead of a casino, BH surprised us with a new place, Falls Terrace, a fancy restaurant in Tumwater. It was a little pricey, over $20.00 for each of us plus we had drinks and dessert. Really good food though, and great service. And a nice view of the falls. We can't go there all the time, but we'll probably go there now and then.
