What part of the country do you live in? That might help, especially if you might, oneway, want to actually meet people, and make "real" friends. 😉

Hi 👋 Newbie! ☺️

 

I'm 🌹 a newbie too! Your introduction caught my eye because I am a history buff also. My grandfather 👴 peaked my interest in history when I was young. His interest was in the Civil War because he was born in the south. I was born in the Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral, Florida area. I live in Tampa, Florida now. 

 

I am a 59 year old single young lady. 😉 When I was attending college my history professor 👨‍🏫 recommended that I become a history professor because I always aced his tests. I wish I had followed his advice, but my interests at the time took me in another direction. I obtained my Bachelors degree in Gerontology and am one semester away from my Masters degree in Public Health. I am currently using my Gerontology training for volunteer opportunities in my church.

 

I consider myself to be retired also, but I have been on Social Security Disability for the past three years. I would enjoy 😊 learning more about you.

 

Have a blessed day! 🙏🏻☀️

I'm responding to the latest post, which popped up in my Email. It from from an IT developer/ programmer in state of LA. Sounds to me more like a "help wanted" ad, or "I can do this stuff" ad... not much like a "Hi, I'm so'n'so, let's do lunch" kind of thing. Isn't there another Topic Thread for that sort of thing??? (Rhetorical  😛  )

Hi to all,

 

I am a mom and nanny (grandma). I grew up in a very family oriented group so having family around is a big thing for me. The family is also very big so you get use to having people around. Many people we meet become bonus family and are welcome always. We love to geocache, and go to the coast, mountains or family's homes. This household is very nerdy. We fight the dark arts with Harry Potter, go on adventures with Doctor Who, Pokemon are our friends, we appreciate calcifer and enjoy spending time with tortoro. Star Wars and Star Trek are part of our world. We love crossing Abbey Road, with big hero 6, inside out and especially the nightmare before Christmas. Pac Man, Mario and Pooh are welcome guests. The Starry Night is something we love looking at. We travel with the hobbits and love elevensies. If you come to our home and leave hungry, it is most likely your fault because we will try and feed/hydrate you. Basically, comfort, love and fun are spoken here. 

 

I am disabled and fighting for my ssi. That seems like a never ending project. I try to keep myself into the other things though and not my health so much. I have always been the one who takes care of everyone and everything. Probably will be still at my own funeral.  It is nice to "meet" you all.
