everyone knows your name.

Years back, AayJay had found a cool little pix of a rowdy bar with armed men and bawdy women that was up top to signify 'lively, heated discussions and random characters'

A few years back, after AayJay retired from being the front face of the forum, I came across the Cheers pix and thought, WOW, that's SO "us"... Every conceivable character, personality, physicality, education, etc. in a place where most of us know one another by screen "name" and personalities are known, viewpoints, etc. I thought it quite apropos. Put to a vote, Merlin readily agreed, as did the others (I believe, cannot recall WHEN it was changed or who was on board then)...

Seriously? You've NEVER been in a barroom? Never?? Wow. I've very SELDOM been in one as I don't drink, no longer smoke, don't carouse nor pick up either and I DETEST sports bars and drunken people slobbering their particular brand of idiocy.

You're also correct that I am nothing like either Diane or Rebecca inside. The only real similarity is that I don't especially fit into a barroom anymore than Diane did. I didn't watch very often after Diane left and Rebecca joined the cast. I was in my "I hate TV" stage by then. There was a time, when pretty young, that I used to go to night clubs and drink some, but always with my husband and we went there for the music and dance floor. A nightclub is quite different and I always hated barrooms and drunks. That much more after nearly being killed by one at age 20.

    may see me as Crane. Others may say I remind them of Cliff. A few might think George. I rarely watched the show. There was little I saw to draw me in, or keep me. I saw enough episodes to recognize... more

      Oh, I have done it all. That bar is more like a church social relative to some of my wild ass days of drinking and carousing. Never did drugs except a couple of pot puffs back in 1965. I would crawl... more

            I take back looking like him. The image of them together, he looks different than he looks. That leaves me with no one in the group as a lookalike. Starsky and Hutch. Whichever one was the blond,... more
