Greetings!

This is the Personal Happenings thread. The purpose of this thread is to discuss personal happenings.

On occasion, Members might wish to share personal events, sometimes serious, that donít quite fit the Miscellaneous Discussion Thread.

It is also possible that other Members will want to keep up with events, particularly major ones, happening in the lives of other Members.

If you have any personal happenings, there will no longer be a need to do any logical gymnastics to somehow take a totally unrelated topic and apply it to your personal life. You can simply discuss it in this thread, instead.

I would encourage everyone to look at this thread if they see it in the most Recent Threads, because itís possible that something important has happened.

With that said, someone will need to get us started. I do not have any personal happenings that I wish to share.

Is this the official personal happenings thread? Is it Wizard approved like the other guys threads, or is this to be a rogue operation?
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Itís a good thread idea and is intended for the purpose of talking about any personal happenings that one may wish to discuss.

Last time I checked, I donít require approval to start new threads, so I didnít consult with Wizard as to this threadís creation.

To answer your question of whether or not this thread is intended to be official: thatís not within my purview to decide.

And, for the record, fewer than 1% of my posts have been new threads. Many of the threads I have created have related to the WoV Picks Game or WoV Playoff Picks Game, so I donít feel like I can be accused of abusing thread creation ability.

I was contemplating a similar thread, but you beat me to it. My thought was "Personal or Historic Firsts." Those posts would include individual achievements either positive or negative. My hesitancy in proposing such was that I have not been a contributing poster for several years and did not know if something similar had been created.

The membership of this forum is quite diverse and for the most part, I believe, accomplished.

I am quite confident, there will be surprises and perhaps some "howls."

To start:
1. I was the first member of my family to graduate from college.
2. I was the first, according to DeMango, to start a "mega" gambling thread on this forum back in 2010: The Hoax that is the 1.41% PL HA in Craps or some such name.

Thanks. Creative idea. I dread moderating it.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Congratulations on being the first in your family to graduate college; that's quite an accomplishment. Disagreements with the concept of House Edge, and its importance, aside...you're clearly a very well-educated person, are intellectually varied and are a very good writer.

Wow!! Thank you for the compliments from someone whom I have great respect and I can intellectually disagree without being disagreeable.

Your turn. OD, there are no wrong answers unless a claim (historical first) can be properly disputed, so a "filter" will not be needed, I believe.

My Godson was the first in our family to be born in the United States, as both my parents were born in Ireland and myself and my two sisters were all born while my father was based overseas. He is also the first to buy a million dollar house, something I still can't quite grasp.

The American dream.

Although my mortgage lender says that I can afford a $1 million house, I can't unless I drastically change my lifestyle. I expect to pay less than half of that for my new house in Florida.
