    Digging Up Threads of Yore ("Old Threads")

    It is wise to research and add to an already existing topic(s) rather than start another.

    We are not usually the first to have thoughts on a subject and can usually benefit from at least some of what others have written.

    Cats Chasing Me!

    How about this one, I own a cat that keeps "buzzing" me every time I walk a round in my yard. What should I do?

    Necromancy is one of the black arts. I would avoid it.

    Besides, all that stuff they wrote earlier -- they were wrong.

    But if you don't, you get people yelling at you for not using the search function.


    I say **** 'em. As long as the same topic wasn't brought up 2 days ago, start a new one.
