Well my goodness, what a shiny new site.  Haven't dropped by in years.  Redecorating? 

I will go and explore various corridors.  Good to see this place still exists.

 I saw a poll asking about reducing the number of threads/forums here on Escape From Elba.    If the number is reduced, here's hoping that Meander Where You May stays intact.  It's early days after the big reboot, and I'm hoping some of the old NYTs, along with newbies, will start to repopulate this forum.   I'm missing meandering.

Why DID they shut down the old NYTs forums, anyway?

Trump. Its primary his fault.

NYT went to a article based comment format. May have also been a pay feature. Memory is not as good as it.was.in times past.

Ah, well.   Good to see at least one familiar name here.   It's been years since the Olden Days,  before the mass migration.

I invited someone to meet me here for coffee, hence the photo.

RIP.   My uncle (the Bohemian artist one) used to subscribe, and in my youth I would read it sometimes when visiting.   It being Kansas,  that was a pretty good reach for a neighborhood newspaper.
