Wow. There is a LOT of irony floating around this topic right now.
Not sure I follow....
I'm pretty sure that Maddy was poking some fun at Vinny posting a pile of new threads about a thousand different things. (Vinny was recently complimented on "bringing a lot of energy to the forum", language Maddy echoed.) So she posts one that's totally ridiculous and over the top, and Vinny earnestly pops up with two consecutive dead-serious posts on her topic.
Oh, Maddy, you are very naughty! I certainly didn't catch your humor, although I did wonder what was going on. Vinny, we love you, keep bringing the energy.

So Maddy is female? I thought Sophia (making an assumption on that name) was the only female actively here.

Maddy is female. And very colorful. O0

There’s also a Michelle. MichelleBelle?

I think Annie, who doesn’t post very often, is male. He used his dog’s name for the handle. So, except when the dog is posting, male. I don’t think either of them have posted in a while.

Vantablack, because it's the blackest black in the world.

Color is hard to determine a favorite. I think it depends on what other colors are surrounding it and what the color is attached to.

White is a great color, but I don't want my steering wheel to be all white.

Blue...no, green!

We need an innocuous topic that would be fun to toss around....recipes for Thanksgiving dinner and potlucks maybe? Or anyone starting an indoor garden for the winter to grow edible greens?

Good Python reference, Sophie!
I have some edible greens, but I don’t think I should post about them online.

I do have a chestnut recipe that has worked well for me this autumn. Fail-safe:

I pickled things I grew outside the past couple years, plus some things I'm keeping in the root cellar (garlic, pumpkins, squash). I'm going to try dehydrating veggies next year. I am going to try some season extenders to get an early start on things in the spring. Very exciting times 8)

I just realized I forgot to mention the rhubarb wine I have bubbling away on the dinner table.

The one year I had a bumper crop of tomatoes I dehydrated a ton of them. But since then many seem to get killed by the blight that seems to be in our area. Bell peppers, though, have done quite well both of the last two years. They've turned into my "cash" crop.
