Looks like the Fred's are having a good time.

Pootle - Mad Cook used it to describe her wander through the store. So really it's a UK thing that we took hold of and ran with it.

Whiska - are you really a Fred? My imaginary friend's name is Fred...umm...I mean as I was growing up...

"Fred" is another code?

Honestly! It's going to take me weeks and months to get up to speed here!

No, it's some members' real names. Their last names are Flintstone.

Pac and Whiska are both Freds. Hence, the Freds.

Not a code, it's a name...some of us do have real names and not just usernames...

Don't worry, in a couple of weeks you will be as goofy as we are.

I admit I did have to look on the Urban dictionary to see the meaning of pootle.

Yes and if you made Imaginary Fred a member, I think that makes 3 of us, although I don't recall if anyone ever took a Fred show of hands.

I was goofy before I arrived, but to be fair, I feel quite at home already!

A bunch of people who love food?
Check.

A bunch of people from around the world?

A bunch of people who love to chat about anything?

I'm specially fonda Fred's...

Back to coffee...I have a Keurig K-cup maker, it makes one cup at a time. But it is fast enough for the two of us.

I'm not sure that's possible.

We have a Keurig too, amazingly fast.

On the subject of Fred, for some reason, all spiders at my house are called Fred.
