from henceforth...

The cool (sunglasses) smiley is the TNFJ version of "like"...

...UNLESS one of the power-folk add a thumbs-up (and hey...why not...a thumbs-down) to the smileys menu.

Oh Dear. I don't understand half of what people type using the English Alphabet, but now I have to learn a whole new language of weird yellow dots? And when did the pound sign (#) become a "hash tag"? How am I supposed to just know what all these new TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) mean? I thought BAT stood for Basically Another Tuba.

Oh, and when someone posts they are giving a recital or clinic at PU next week, how am I supposed to know which PU and where in the world it is? I mean PU may mean only one place in your little world but to the rest of us, PU might mean some other place on the globe. For those who don't know, an old fashioned globe is a solid 3 dimensional representation of Google Maps.

This is why we old guys get grumpy. We worked for decades at the game of life and now when it should be easier because of all that we have learned, the rules get changed and what we've learned gets classified as obsolete.

I like what Matt just said. How's that for old school?

Those little yellow dots are actually closer to hieroglyphics than current proper English. So, technically, they are really old school. (What went around goes around again, don't throw out that old tie). It only took Egyptologists about 150 years to figure out, and then read, hieroglyphics. Finding the rosetta stone was a big help. Maybe we need a rosetta stone to translate the emogies or we can just guess.

PU is a place??? I thought PU is what happens after beer and sauerkraut.

And whoever came up with the #metoo movement, must be from one of the younger generations. They didn’t give much thought to how the rest of the normal population says “pound” instead of “hashtag.” :shock:

Hey Matt,

As - sometimes - the refrigerator cleaning-out job gets a bit ahead of me, I know good-and-well where PU is.

:roll: Oh sure. Next thing you know, you'll trying to convince us that the earth isn't flat... :roll:

Thanks Matt, I really like what I quoted from you. I'm going to use that one with my students!
