Welcome to DU. I'm Jeff.

My sons are now 22, 19 and 13, and it's almost as fascinating to watch DU grow as it has been to watch them. When Bush stole the election, I was pissed, and no one seemed to get it, and particularly not after 9-11. Did no one care? Am I the only one?

Obviously not, and I am very grateful for having found y'all in 2003. I'm especially appreciative of the admins who are committed to keeping the site useful, functional and engaging.

My modest contribution to helping you use DU is in my signature line. If you're looking for the posting tips, how to use color or fonts in your posts, the link below will take you to the relevant thread... created by smarter people than I.

And no, I'm not really a lumberjack.

1. Is it from the Monty Python skit?

2. Yup.

 

MANY years ago, I thought it was funny to have people repeat the "... and he's okay" thing when I entered a chat room, and I've kept the pen-name.

Although I do wear suspenders, it's rarely with a bra.

3. Hey, Jeff.

I'm a little disappointed that you are not a real lumberjack. But I am glad you are here nonetheless.

5. It's a lot funner as a hobby than a career.

7. Hi Jeff

But what we want to know is....do you put on women's clothing and hang around in bars?

8. I have a nephew. Before he was married he used to play in a band.

 

His advice for young guys; "Start a band and crossdress occasionally - women love it."

These days I just stick with the suspenders. The bra sends mixed messages.

9. Well if you wear it is a bro not a bra

Although some call it a manzeir...when you get old you may need one....I am thinking about it now.

10. Hi Jeff!

...was in the neighborhood. I got to know you a little better during the recent Meta scuffles. At least something good came from it. (I'm sure more will though.)

Nice to meet you! I'm Ann
