    What's Your Routine??

    I like dogs. We have two of them and they are part of the family. I make a real effort to better understand their behavior and their "language" (not the barking!!) One step is to realize that they are creatures of habit. Once they start or pick up something it quickly becomes part of a routine. I find myself in the same position:
    - I log on to the MOA forum
    - I stop and check the following sections - in that sequence - and see if there is something worth for me reading and/or responding to:

    - Motorrad, because of general interest
    - Airheads, because I own one
    - Oilheads, because I own one
    - Flying Brick K bikes, because I own one
    - K1600, because I own one
    - Ride reports , always interested how the people fare who ride to Terra de Fuego, Siberia or Greenland
    - Just Riding, see how the rest of us are doing out there.
    - Regional Midwest, my location
    - Campfire , the last stop. Read a few jokes and check if I can add to Col Klinck's favorite word game, log out.
    Maybe I wag my tail during the whole process.....

    I sign on and click "New Posts". I tend to key on the thread topic and not on which forum section the post is in. If it is a tech topic I sometimes look to see if the question or comment is a K bike, Oilhead, Airhead (etc.) thread but most often just look at the thread.

    I check "settings" first, to see if there is any activity in a thread where I've posted. Then head to "New Posts" to see what catches my attention.

    I'm a creature of habit also

    I usually sit down in my favorite chair with a hot cup of coffee around 6am and click on the forum and realize I can't see squat. I then remember I left my glasses in the bedroom, so I get up and go get them. When I get back to my chair and sit down, I remember I took my coffee in the bedroom, cause it ain't here now. So, I get up and go back in the bedroom and get my coffee, then go back to my chair. By then with all the exercise , I need to go the head. So, I get my coffee , glasses and last months moa mag and head for the head. Of course all this commotion wakes my wife up and by the time I get out of the head, she has already commandeered my computer and reading Ladies of the MOA. I usually then have to tell her some kind of lie in order for her to release the computer. After I get it back, I start at the top and read all the new threads and all the older ones that I have commented on. Mostly to see if anyone wants to fight or even better but not usual, to see if someone said something good about one of my post. I then try to poke fun at a few un-expecting souls for no particular reason other than to keep the dialog going. I am retired and I do have a routine.

    Many similarities to our morning routine except Annie has her own iPad. We sit in different rooms and compete for bandwidth.

    If Time Warner (or anybody else) ever got near where I live I might think about it. But here, all TV (if you opt to get it) is satellite, nobody's cell phone has service, the only tunable radio station is NPR, and internet is either DSL from the phone company fiber optic cable or satellite.

    Even Time Warner wouldn't get me past clicking on "new posts" though.

    I come from the land of multiple stations so I can say with certainty, NPR is all you need. Much like television, the radio SUCKS.
