You're very welcome. Youse not eligible for a thank you button as yet, I forgot the rules, but you'll get them eventually. Have you been to the war memorial 'round your neck of the woods already?
I most certainly have, and all my visitors are dragged there and made to walk up all the steps reet to the top. Then we go and have a sit down on the bench just down the path that looks over onto the lake.
Have you been on the panorama path from there to Zumikon and seen the giant bench? It´s a treat to sit on that and feel like a hobbit.

This is a weird thread.

Quite poetic, I like it.

Though stealing fleeces sounds scary.

Well we all do what we have to to keep warm.

No I haven't. . .I go as far as my car may carry me. I'll try to check out the bench in the near future. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks lost_inbroad! BTW is there a "thank" or "thumbs up" button around so I don´t have to plaster the whole message board with loads of thanks messages? I´ve been staring at the monitor for so long now that I´ve gone square-eyed, and that dunt go well with the rest of me face.
You didn't have enough posts - minimum 10 is needed before the thanks/groan buttons appear. But now you have so you should see them.

Thanking you nicely, it´s good to be here.
At the moment I´m playing Splatoon, one of the Raymond Rabbids, and Wii Party (bit of a competition going on there with the neighbours´daughter). I´m lucky enough to have me own Oculus Rift and me faves right now are Dance Collider, Fruit Ninja (I´ve got to unlock all the swords before I can stop, it´s a weird compulsion I have), Beat Sabre, and for a bit of proper action, a few rounds of good old zombie shooting on Arizona Sunshine.

PS I just HAVE to ask: you do steal the fleeces while they are still attached to the sheep?
Of course! I game on PC myself and got my username when I started playing Titan Quest Immortal Throne many years ago. When I found a forum for the game I wanted a username to reflect the game and thought of Medea who helped Jason steal the Golden Fleece. So that's how it came about. I play that or it's spiritual successor Grim Dawn nearly every day of the year. Also like to play city builders as a change of pace from hacking 'n' slashing.

Stealing fleeces off the sheep?

I knit sweaters, well, I guess I steal fleeces off the poor sheep too.

Ee by gum, it´s a reet honour to be accepted by a Yorkshireman, thanking you nicely. I´m not a great fan of the mighty FB, as it never shows owt in the right order and it hides posts from me too

Anyways, am hoping to find people who are looking for real life socialising and going for out a beer or two or even a sticky cocktail in summer.
Well, there's a few Yorkies hang out at my bar and drink Yorkshire beer, well, they did before all this nonsense. I'll send you a message.

Ayeup newbee. Pity you're not a proper northerner from Yorkshire like me, but you'll do. There's not much of a social life in this forum these days (there was some years ago) most of the social life has been taken over by the evil Facebook.
Yorkshire? Softy southerner!

(Northumbrian speaking)

A couple of other really nice places are the pond behind the hospital in Z'berg and the Rumensee, down in the woods towards Itschnach/Zollikon. Have fun exploring!

Ahhh, that´s a cool story. It's often a chore to find a good alias.
I'm afraid I've never heard of those games before I've never been a PC gamer, I've always had consoles and now VR. So I'm really enjoying not working at the mo, I´ve gots loads of time to play

At least you could put the jumpers back on the sheep to keep them warm!

Which reminds me of a terrible cracker joke:

What do you call a sheep with a jumper on?

How safe is it to think about it?

Do you know Machinarium? Or Samorost? Games from my home. Very typical.

Titan Quest Anniversary Edition (combined TQ and IT) is available on most consoles. The devs are working to bring the expansions to these atm.

Grim Dawn will be coming to Xbox in hopefully the not too distant future now. Last heard it's still going through certification, but they're on the last stretch.
