Re: Happy ThanksEating Day

I guess grace at the dining table has become even rarer nowadays... I don't think my family has ever once said grace. I was pretty sure this was just something from movies and TV and not a thing people really did. :-) I think you’ve proved the point brilliantly. Another change our times can be real...

Re: Michigan / Detroit Diplomacy group

Just join the facebook group and there will be an event posting in not too long I'm sure. Tombomb will be taking the lead on that. I'm sure there's several people here that would have a few words for him in person ;)

Re: Michigan / Detroit Diplomacy group

I'm there also. I was at the last meetup and we're planning to have another meetup or two before the end of year. I'm kind of eclectic on the platforms I play on but have enjoyed playing occasional live games here over the last 8 years or so.
