...for those of you that have read any of my posts, you know they are either utterly ridiculous, or mercilessly riddled with engineery technobabblery. This will be a ridiculous one.
I apologize in advance for this post. (sure sign I shouldn't have hit that submit button)
Thank you!!! UWOA, we need more instructional posts to keep this forum on topic and instructive. You're post has inspired me to further this instruction by teaching some of the ins and outs of online interaction that escape those less practiced in nuanced discussion.
Lesson 1: This is a date
You'll notice that this date refers to a time over one of earths revolutions around the sun ago--Michael Jackson was still alive and moonwalking at this time. If you'd care to look closer, you'd also see that this is, in fact, the very date Red Charrlotte made that post you quoted! Seems a bit late in the grand scheme of things to bring it back into discussion now.
Lesson 2: It deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht pelpoe cna raed it. Tihgns can be a toatl mses! and you can sitll raed it wouthit a pobelrm. Besides, as long as the ideas are communicated effectively, what more can we ask for in INFORMAL interaction...
Back on topic: I think displaying jewelry would be harmless when you are getting ready to go out on the town, but it can't hurt to hide it during the 'in between'. There are tons of places on your boat that thieves couldn't find given a month living aboard
. Use one of them. Then obviously common sense...don't look expensive and new around the poor and disenfranchised.
