For threads with a lot of pages, I don't go back to page one. I do go back to see what the original question or comment was.
Then I read forward from there to get an idea. Then I go to the last page. Look at the date of posting, I also will read from the emails and not go to the forum. I skip weather or books as a rule. Or any other subject that I am not interested in.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
