What day of the year should we celebrate FRIHOST day





chasbeen
What day of the year should we call FRIHOST day?
Also how should we celebrate it?

First I think it should be the day that the first member joined Frihost?

Second we should celebrate it by each adding 10 posts on that day?

What do YOU think?
darthrevan
Maybe the day we got a certain number of posts or members.? Not sure which would be better and more appropriate.

If you are saying everyone should post 10 posts that say, that works for me, but on average I post more than that Smile

The board start date? 25th Apr 2005.

I like the idea! The board start day sounds good enough I guess. Or maybe the day Bondings started as a member April 26th to be more accurate?

I think it is 26 April 2005. I remember, as I think I mentioned to Bondings during one of his official posts about Frihost being so many years old, that 27 April was my dad's birth day. So he mentioned that Frihost's birthday was 26 April.

OK, checked and just found the thread:

I might make a dynamic image of A big chocolate cake written in JavaScript on April 26th 2013.

I guess I will put 8 candles on it as long as my maffs is correct.

I was in the Falklands In 1982.
After being there 4 months I was looking forward to getting warmer every day as we turned for home.
Then the captain announced he was sailing to Antartica for the first 4 days boy I was a bit upset and expressed my feelings as such to my colleagues Sad

I've always wanted to go to the Antarctica. My roots are in South Africa, so have always been fascinated by it. At the same time though, the cold in the Falklands would have got to me however. I'm not too partial to extreme temperatures. Of the two I probably deal much better with heat, provided the humidity is not too high.

You go with where your from..
After experiencing Canadian winter, I no longer ever want to be cold again.
That's why I can be seen wearing a coat on Mid Summer days when the temperature is touching 90:)

Not sure how wearing a coat when it is on the nineties because of the Canada weather. I would think you would be use to the cold and when it is like forty you would still be wearing shorts lol.
