“heh goody, why you still posting on the blog?” inquiring minds wanna know.

good frigging question. i was encouraged to continue and well, i will for a bit. i mentioned the other day that monday past (i think i mentioned it) as the cut off day. hell, i even gave “orders” to administration to have it shutdown but they were ignored. lol

when i do STOP, there will be a black and white test pattern, just like the one pictured here and that i remember seeing as a kid at home posted. does anyone else remember this besides me?

very nostalgic image…was this in the U.S. as well?  anyhoo if i stop posting or take an extended break, that image will be signal.

thanks for the comments everyone!!

    Yep, we had this in the US! I remember it well back in the Black and white TV days! We would have to “tune” in the stations every time you turned the channel!! I’m guessing Myles and Brian are both at the age where they might not have had a TV in their very early days. I was born in 65 and we always had one although 3 channels is all we could get in the 60’s!

    I was wondering why myself, and I’m glad to see you’re still around! I can understand needing to take a break and/or do different things.

    Re the test pattern, yes, we had that down here too!

    Apparently there’s an April Wine song in another movie, Grown ups 2, is that true, and if so, roller?

    Don’t go Myles. Perhaps just cut back on how often you post. That way you won’t find it a chore, but fun when you do post.
