By the way, fifty360, this conversation originally was secondry to a forum here where us singles would post our profiles, i.e. the kind of info you're looking for. I don't have the link any more, but maybe our moderator (Zee) does. Also it was in the original version of this thread, SSSSM part un.
I'm a bit old for you, but maybe I could be your cougar!

Isn't that called a cored hull?

FWIW, because I have a solid hull, it means that it's very stiff - even though now over 40 years old ........one of the many reasons I need to beat the ladies off with a stick .

I luv the Internet .

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

I don't have and won't ever have FB. It just chews up too much time. The CF is much better for info and I am not really interested in what undies people are wearing or what and who they had breakfast with as that is all my friends seem to talk about on FB. A complete time waster.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

i made the fb group for those who wish to have ability to live chat with other group members.... here on cf is a great way to meet and begin a decent friendship, first step of getting to know someone.... we all have our preferences and some of us prefer to not use fb, and others choose to so do --is all fair and good.... i like cfr and i do use fb, so is just a different place to chat and make comments.....
is just an alternative for communication.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

I will get an Iphone so that I can have face time with friends who have an Iphone or Ipad that is a visual phone conversation absolutely free of charge anywhere in the world. In Mexico you need WiFi but in other countries 3G works fine. Much better than having to have a computer or Ipad with you to type and chat.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

I thought it was just me, yes I used to be a FB junkie, now I gave it up because of how much time I could lose in it. It is effective but not necessary in my life. Also if this site is not supported, it could close, it requires activity to make it financially viable.

Shouldn't this be either in Food and provisioning or on FB?
Definitely misplaced.
