I agree about the HF! Sorry, I think I worded it wrong! What I meant to say was we do discuss other genres too, we are interested in a lot of genres, but HF is our main topic that brought us all together. How they have intoned their message is that we NEVER discussed anything else, IMHO.

Ouch! I saw the tar and feather scene in HBO John Adams series, and now have a greater understanding of its painful and humiliating outcomes. So let's not and say we did ..... ;) .

Let's not do that. I can't remember what book it was but the aftermath of tar and feathering was described in great detail and it's not pretty. Anyone is welcome to post at both boards if they wish, at least for me. It's just a tad bit too boring over there at the moment.
