27 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck all as we go into the first move.
30 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 1902: One of the players in another game I'm in just posted this: "I ran across a quote in the forum recently that made me laugh. It goes something like this:

'In Diplomacy there are lies, darned lies, and then there's A(Ven)-Tri.'"
30 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 1902: Uh, but please don't think that here's any ominous intent there--just an interesting quote!
30 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 1902: grammar problems too, *sigh*
31 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia, care to click the ready button so we can advance to the next round?
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1903: Gentlemen,

The title of this game is The Care and Feeding OF Allies, not ON Allies. Just a reminder. ;0)
07 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: The Italian people are cheering the French army of liberation and sending wagonloads of grappa, cheeses, olives, and lasagna dinners to their liberators. Viva la bella Francia!
07 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh, and garlic bread. Mustn't forget the garlic bread!
08 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1904: Breaking News: Italian authorities are reportedly in hot pursuit of the gang of people dressed as gypsies that disrupted the Venetian marketplace. While the costumes were authentic, many Venetians wondered why they spoke with Germanic accents.
10 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1905: The Turkish Sultan's strong use of garlic has put all of his nearest neighbors in a coma, as evidenced by the lack of military orders coming from their headquarters.
10 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1905: Residents of Italy's southern coasts have taken to wearing facemasks as the stench of garlic and cloves is getting stronger.
10 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1905: ...while chanting "Liar, liar, pants on fire!"
15 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italian forces in Trieste put a bold face on their latest moves by calling it a "repositioning" rather than a retreat. Meanwhile, Slavic and Croatian maidens who were visiting the Italian camp in the vineyards near Trieste are disappointed that the Turkish soldiers do not appear to be nearly as welcoming, or interested, as the Italians.
17 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Or as strong, or as handsome. :--p
20 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1909: This is one crowded peninsula!!! Redolent with garlic and cloves, strong coffee and good yogurt. Along with some old goat jokes. :-)
21 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1909: Wow, what a convoy!!!
21 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1909: It won't be long now.
24 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1910: What can I do? Do we need to get my army out of Greece so a fleet can get in there?
24 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Attack Serbia from Greece, I'll support with Budapest/Trieste and I'll move a fleet into Greece with Albanian support.
24 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1910: You got it.
24 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Of course this is all in code. :-)
28 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: It was 108 on my porch today (42.2 C). It was so hot the birds landed on the porch and sat there with their wings spread, so my wife took pity on them and put a sprinkler on. Hottest since one hot week in 1989.
28 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Holy cow, it was 96 here. And I thought it was fall.
28 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: The cold(er) weather is moving up the coast though, so should get better soon.
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: Join me in a salute to one tough Turkey. Cheers!
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: Haha, thanks :) I held up longer than I would have thought.
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1912: Yes, it was a good effort. And my salute to the rest of the alliance for standing firm and keeping a united front.
29 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1913: Maybe you'd want to take a 4-way draw for my efforts? :)
29 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 1913: I think you'll get a survive if we draw right after your last unit is eliminated, although not a share in the draw. Me, I'm only in the game due to the mercy of the two original allies and their laudable desire to reward a minor ally.
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1913: A very sad moment......
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1913: Hey, the Turks did it to the Armenians! Turn about is fair play, after all. ;-)
29 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1913: Thanks for playing til the end. It's hard to stay involved when things start going south.
30 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 1913: No problem. It's unfortunate when people quit. Sometimes you just have to take your lumps.
30 Sep 10 UTC I hit the draw button.
30 Sep 10 UTC Good thing, too. I was just about almost getting ready to think about rising up and becoming overlord... oh wait, that was a comic book I was reading before I went to bed. ;-)
01 Oct 10 UTC Good game, all. I enjoyed playing with you all.
01 Oct 10 UTC Morgan and Subutai, you are both gentlemen and warriors. Blessings and honors attend.
