TOTM = Theme of the Month! If you are not familiar with this idea, please visit this link to catch up!! http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=326603&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0

Here we are ladies and gents, trying to come up with ideas for the July TOTM!! I am going to jump right in and suggest "Patriotism" since it's July. What I'd like to do is have everyone chime in with their ORIGINAL ideas, please do not 'vote' for which idea you like best. I will take all original suggestions and make a poll of them in a new thread (I will link to it here) and that's how we will vote on July's theme. So... to make it easier to see all ideas and be clear what they are, please submit your ideas like this... you can type any message you want, but separate your suggestions from all other text like this:

***Patriotism***

Now I will know that what you typed between the asterisks is your suggestion. If you want to explain why you are making that suggestion, please do it seperately from the word(s) between the asterisks. I think that would work the best. That way no one says, "Well, I suggested 'blah blah' and it didn't even make it in the poll!!" I don't want anyone to be missed or feel left out!! I will post the poll for approximately the last 5 days of the month and start the new thread with the most popular suggestion on the 1st of the month.

Thank you all... I can't wait to hear the utterly bizzare ideas that are going to come this way!! icon_biggrin.gif

You know... I wish Doug would suggest something. He never really participates! icon_wink.gif hahahahahaha! Great suggestions so far, I can't wait to see what else we get. Now, just to be clear, if some themes are very similar, I may just list one, but it would encompass all similar themes. For example, if we get 'Patriotism', '4th of July', and 'America', we may boil that down to one entry of 'Patriotism' because all three could be covered by that. I hope that is ok with everyone. If anyone disagrees, please just let me know. One problem is that I don't know how many entries we can have in the poll, so we may have to boil it down to just a handfull before we do the poll! Does anyone know if there is a limit to how many choices are in a poll? Thanks to those who have already made suggestions!! Keep watching to see what we get!!

Oh, just to clarify... Bob, was 'summer of love' a suggestion? I thought you'd just been using the bulbous banded snarfblatt and were having a fun trip! Bwahahaha!

***** Just to clarify my suggestions, it was along the line that the Summer of 2007 happens to be the (get this) 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love (aka 1967.) [Boy do I feel OLD!!] icon_razz.gif So, along that line I was thinking tye-dye, psychodelic anything, underwater Bongs icon_wink.gif etc. etc. (And I got the little star thingy's in too!!) icon_lol.gif *********

Ok, this one is a bit childish, but I'm such a geek sometimes, I have to put in my two cents.

**Harry Potter**

The seventh and final book comes out, and the new movie comes out. My 7 year old and I are such Harry Potter fans, I just couldn't help suggesting.

I like Summer of Love, I was born in 1967!

LOL...You're kidding, right? The only thing different between GA and NC is a "Bless Yer Heart"

Isn't there a song with the name "Summer of Love"?

TY That would cover a lot, eh? From Clint Eastwood to the self-proclaimed stud in high school and from spinning the roulette table to spinning the bottle...just a lil' piece of advice ya'll...NEVER PLAY SPIN THE BOTTLE THAT INCLUDES ANY MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY! someone told me that once thought I'd pass that along.

Awww, but I'm not from Georgia, I'm from Arizona - I'm a recent Georgia transplant. And as I'm sure those who have lived in Arizona will tell you - we're a mean bunch!

The combination of everything makes us just plain old ornery people.

And isn't Georgia just full of crazies and criminals? I mean this was a penal colony back during the colonial times. icon_wink.gif

Duuuuuuude... I lived in Arizona for a little while... for like a year when I was 1. Hahahaha! I have a lot of family there and yep, they're all cranky! icon_wink.gif I say it's the heat rash that makes 'em crabby! (But it's a DRY heat!! Yah... but it's STILL 110 degrees, I don't care HOW dry it is!)

These ideas have been great so far. I have to admit... I am dying for Harry. This is supposed to be a good movie if you are a fan of the books. Lots of things that I've really been looking forward to are supposed to happen in this one. And I can't wait to read the last book. I am so nervous!!
