Calling all NEWBIES. ... Let's introduce our selves! Use this thread.

Hi, I'm Mary. I'm new to these threads but am excited by the opportunities to learn and connect.  I love AARP.  I'm very newly retired, live in the midwest, and there are SO MANY opportunities.

 

If you want to make connections with me and other Newbies, reply to this thread.  I'm seeing many starting individual threads/topics which will make it difficult to connect, just due to shear volume.

 

Hope to hear from you

Mary

Thanks,

 

Nice to know i am not the only one that gets these kind of responses.

 

 

How do i get the moderator's attension without getting the moderator mad at me?


Yeah, that's pretty much the way of customer service these days. Insulting, I find.

 

@AARPTeri@IS a moderator. What I just did (type @ plus her screen name) sent notification to her. You'll want to do something like that to your original post so she knows what the issue is. If she cannot help, she will get you the help you need. Best wishes.

Hi, Mary -- I'm finding it a little tough navigating the site, but I hope I'm communicating with you.  I live in South Carolina.  Thanks for chiming in -- good to hear from you.

@ss3900: Couldn't agree more! I am with you, the site is a little funny to navigate. And I am tech savvy to some extent!

Hi Richard,
I've been to OkCity one time and enjoyed my trip. While at the race track on that first day of Nov., we all were enjoying the races, when lo and behold, it started snowing. Thus, the races had to come to an end. I also enjoyed going to the nearby Botanical Gardens that day.
Have you ever been to "The Deep South" ?
