    playground for Fezz and Johns....

    Introducing our 2 newest moderators who would like to experiment with some new tools added to their toolbox.

    Start on this...."
    It's no accident.....

    Optiboard has been built in large measure, by the members themselves. Steve has put in yoeman efforts in time and moneies expended. The members have helped wherever and whenever they could with the finances.Members have designed the forums they wanted and like magic, Steve produsces them. Optiboard has truly been a group effort so....while you are passing out Kudo's......give one to yourself.

    PS I think I forgot to mention the important part the moderators play in keeping this a level playing field and a comfortable place to be.
    Everyone has a part.

    PS If you are not now a sustaining member you can do so by subscribing to opitiboard in one of three levels. We appreciate the support we have been given, and I can promise you no one is getting rich on this site!

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge-Kubla Kahn
    Kubla Kahn


    In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
    A stately pleasure-dome decree:
    Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
    Through caverns measureless to man
    Down to a sunless sea.

    So twice five miles of fertile ground
    With walls and towers were girdled round:
    And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
    Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
    And here were forests ancient as the hills,
    Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

    But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
    Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
    A savage place! as holy and enchanted
    As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
    By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
    And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
    As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
    A mighty fountain momently was forced:
    Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
    Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
    Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:
    And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
    It flung up momently the sacred river.
    Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
    Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
    Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
    And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean:
    And 'mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
    Ancestral voices prophesying war!

    The shadow of the dome of pleasure
    Floated midway on the waves;
    Where was heard the mingled measure
    From the fountain and the caves.
    It was a miracle of rare device,
    A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!

    A damsel with a dulcimer
    In a vision once I saw:
    It was an Abyssinian maid,
    And on her dulcimer she played,
    Singing of Mount Abora.
    Could I revive within me
    Her symphony and song,
    To such a deep delight 'twould win me
    That with music loud and long
    I would build that dome in air,
    That sunny dome! those caves of ice!
    And all who heard should see them there,
    And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
    His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
    Weave a circle round him thrice,
    And close your eyes with holy dread,
    For he on honey-dew hath fed
    And drunk the milk of Paradise.

    I guess I will play along. Trying to boost my post numbers so I can have more privileges. I really don't know what I'm supposed to do anyway, but I did something!! Feel free to delete this if I am screwing it up! hahaha.

    This post needs more jumprope!

    Coleridge was on Laudinum. Edit that, Fezz.

    Hey....you spelled Laudanum wrong! It is opium based at least!

    Maybe I need to chase the dragon as well!
