    In retirement, I find myself living in several time zones: bed time, meal time, bath time, nap time, potty time, and the cycle repeats over and over. Oh, I almost forgot Ukulele time!

    It does make for some mental adjustments. Great Britain will soon find itself with the same conundrum once the EU fully establishes itself as a controlling federal authority as the US federal government did with the American states.

    Meanwhile, it's now 1440Z, breakfast is over, time to get the morning errands done before lunchtime (1700Z) and afternoon music practice.

    True.

    Yesterday I read some kinda uncomplimentary words about UU. It hurt my heart. I love it here -- do my bazillion posts show that? I miss the Aloha spirit that used to abound here. However, I still think it's the best ukulele website.

    A little bit of this, but mostly what Sukie said. It's not as "aloha" around here as it used to be. Now there are people trolling for the sake of trolling, mean spirited comments tossed out there as "snark."

    If I want that, I can hit up any forum.

    I kind of stay in my little niche of UU now.

    Wow Sukie, I hadn't noticed until now, 23000 Plus posts. That's a lot of posts and a member since 2008, that's staying power.

    Too many people came in who excelled at cheap shots at others' expense in the name of humor and too much argumentative BS negativity. I never minded the repetition, I either helped or saw that others had helped and moved on. Now I mostly just stop in for UU+ because the live and let live attitude is missing.

    It doesn't feel like a healthy & safe family any more. It might as well be a guitar forum. So now I lurk in those and mess around with my guitars and man are my fingers sore.
    I should be curling up with a good uke, a book and my dog.

    There is still an undercurrent of aloha because of its in the DNA of the 'ukulele. Personally, I'm find myself watching the videos instead of posting comments.
