If you joined today or LONG ago..
its that time again.
Oct Golden Week

This will effect any buys you just made..from China.
I hope they have a great vacay.. hard workers around the world deserve no less. Once back (8th) they will likely be playing 'catch-up'...
Hope they all have a good break.


open to suggestions as to placing this I another section.

Yeah, it's that time again. I always try to avoid ordering from China during their week long holiday. It takes at least 15 days to get stuff from there normally, so adding another week to that is too long for me. Thanks for the heads up.

Their National 2-3 week holiday around February is the
one that kills me on orders.

Is that the Chinese new year, Jerry? I have a hard time keeping up with all of their down times.

Prolly, for USA, not getting replys to emails sent to China is the most annoying.

My hangover days are long behind me. I had a Guinness Stout on my birthday about 7 years ago. I hadn't had a drink for ten years before that. I didn't even finish the stout as it didn't taste as good as I remembered it. I pretty much lost my taste for all alcoholic beverages.

Well Golden Week has passed.. happens in Oct very year.
China New Year?? idts --
interesting side note.. many there give up the weekend off before and work instead.. when they normally would be off work..
so the golden week is preceded by the 9 day not-so-golden-week.

You know the last thread was closed for a reason - dragging your spat with Len out on this one is only likely to further wreck your reputation around here. I can't remember who stated it in the other thread - but respect is earned here for what an individual actually does on/for the forum, not what they do for their day job. Threatening legal action on vets in the first week is a brilliant way to get yourself shunned/banned here.

And take that from a new member - Being new to forums and the LPF is no reason to antagonise veteran members like you would an unliked aunt on Facebook.

Ditto to what Immo1282 said, from a member who has been here awhile. Just let it go and you will be far better off here. People do get banned from this place and, once banned, there is no coming back. EVER.

TJ - A joke to one is a credible threat to another.

The party analogy here is brilliant; if you haven't seen it, take a good read.

Anyhow this thread's kind of derailed too...

Sense of humor
A sense of humor the ability to understand or share in comedy, or situations that are funny in any way. It allows you to appreciate a joke or comedic story. Humor also includes an intellectual ability to see the meaning of a joke, pun, or absurd situation.


SINCE
In the intervening period between (the time mentioned) and the time under consideration, typically the present.


I don't see the humor in " since of humour " except that in attacking someone's grammar you used poor grammar......So yea, I suppose that's funny although I don't think that was your intention, or was it ?

Also the rest of your grammar was far from correct, so it's difficult to think that was intentional when you messed up so much more.
