TLC PRESENTS LEAKY LOUNGE, OUR FIRST-EVER FORUM!

trio.jpgOur readers are just too smart.
This week, a "?" appeared on our page design. Sharp-eyed Leaky readers picked it up immediately and, well-trained by JKR hoop-jumping, began sussing out what it meant. Yesterday, we popped another ? into the newspaper at the top of the graphic, today's date, and the line, "What do you say to that?"

Within about two minutes our readers guessed what was happening. And they were right.

Despite much cackling and game-playing with red herrings and vague clues, the one truth we hid all night is that our readers had actually discovered the truth: TLC finally has... a FORUM.

We are SO thrilled and extremely proud to present the first-ever Leaky Cauldron Forum, Leaky Lounge.

You all have been asking - even begging - us for this for years, and with a book and a movie on the horizon we could not ignore those requests any longer. TLC always has been a community - now it's literally so.

This is the product of an entire month of intensive work by a team of 20-odd moderators, administrators, designers and more. And we are so excited about it we can hardly handle it. It came about in November when longtime reader Nick Rhein sent us a proposal for a forum, so thorough and sensitive to our readers' needs that we knew it was time to dive in.

There are so many great features we don't know where to begin. The forum is themed on, of course, a Leaky Cauldron / Diagon Alley location, and we've added some shops to the darling little lane. The one we think is coolest is The WB Shop, a forum to discuss HP merchandise, run by an actual WB representative who wants to hear your direct feedback about what you like and dislike, and what HP items you wish you could buy. TLC will be working closely with the WB Shop, the entire team of whom I've met and can say they are fun and honestly interested in providing you all with things you like and want, to help prod production of items the HP fans find ideal. There will be more on that in the future.

For the moment, we've got a whole new forum to explore, so get to it. There's a forum for parents, a forum for teachers, a forum to discuss all the sites in the Floo Network, one to discuss JKRowling.com, a Muggle book club, and more. And of course, there is plenty of room to discuss the HP books and films.

Don't worry, you won't have to miss out on your news by hanging at the pub all day; the site is framed with Floo links, search links for each Floo site, and a news ticker that will keep you up to date on your HP news at all times. It's a Leaky Cauldron reader's oasis.

And yes, that's a Google ad. The time has come, guys. We are growing and expanding at enormous rates and are currently hundreds of dollars each month above our agreement with Idologic. We had to make a choice - one which could not POSSIBLY include asking you for more money, don't even think about it - to stay stagnant, or to save our reservoir for the day when we need a second server (which may be soon) by supporting the site without taxing our readers, a choice which also has the benefit of allowing us to grow further, expand further. This forum is not the end of the surprises we have in store very soon, not even by a long shot. We can keep the ads discreet and will strive to, as long as our readers support them.

Feeling a little overwhelmed by all this? Never fear. Go on and register, and then take the Leaky Lounge Tour to get a taste of this wonderful new world of HP community. We've even started up a bunch of discussions to get it going (but don't worry - we waited for you).

I have to take a moment here to send outrageous heaps of thanks to Nick for his unbelievable work setting this up, to John for his, as you'll see and are used to, exemplary, gorgeous designing work, and to our moderators and admins, including newcomers Lilly, Torill, Lord Fishcake, Clare, Puffin and Matt (most of whom you know very well from the comments here), and everyone else who worked so hard this past month to make this happen. And, of course, thank you, dear patient TLC readers who put up with our tantalizing, and especially those who stayed up all night tonight waiting for this.

We are so excited. See you there.

You have this notion that if you had the right golf clubs you could shoot that perfect score! Join the club, we all do. But really, what you need is the perfect set of golf clubs for you!

That question of course leads to another question… how do I find out which golf clubs are best for me? And more importantly, what exactly do I really need? Which brand of golf clubs should I look for, which are the best for me? Could it be Taylor Made, Callaway, Nike or a host of others– but guess what , you will never know until you find out for certain.

Okay, so now we got you thinking, huh! With so many choices for all your golf needs I am sure your mind is swirling with ideas but at the same time you are thinking “how much will they cost”. Let’s face it, golf clubs are not cheap. However, they are something that you will use for a long time. You may replace certain golf clubs but in my experience, golfers tend to stick with the golf clubs that work best for them and only change their clubs when it is absolutely necessary. Playing with golf equipment that doesn’t fit can do a golfer more harm than good, both in terms of scoring and enjoyment.

With so many choices how is the world will you ever been able to choose?

Here’s my suggestion: Go to your local golf store or a local golf pro shop. Ask if they offer “fittings”. Most of them do and will be more than happy to make you an appointment. Now remember, you are under no obligation to purchase anything so treat this as your opportunity to learn what golf equipment best fits your game. This process will give you the information you need to decide which set of golf clubs are best for you.

Once you have decided which golf clubs you think best fits your game, start pricing them. Not all golf stores or pro shops will offer the same prices for exactly the same equipment, so start shopping. Turn to the internet…. where you will likely find the best deal for your golf clubs.

If you think my tip was worthwhile… let me show you exactly where to find the most for your money. Visit my website: www.allyourgolfneeds.com . It’s where you will find plenty of gold information, helpful hints, helpful tips and deals on the best golf clubs from the biggest manufacturers of golf equipment in the industry, those that you know and trust. Click on the link for the best deal on golf clubs.

You will also find plenty of free golf information, helpful tips, golf club reviews, and deals on the most popular golf clubs from the biggest manufacturers of golf equipment in the industry that you know and trust like:

My personal goal is to provide you with the best information, the most helpful golf tips and of course the best golf equipment that fits your game. I want you to enjoy the game of golf more and of course play your best game!

Don’t be tricked into paying top dollar for your new set of golf clubs, visit me at www.allyourgolfneeds.com and enjoy the discounts that are awaiting you!

Hey everyone, this website is dedicated to my ex-girlfriend Vicky. She’s such a bitch! She cheated on me with my best friend. It was during New Years, when I came home and saw her and my best friend making babies in our own bedroom! I hate her so much, so I’m giving away her pictures that she send me so the whole internet can see the slut that she is.

Here it is :
