We have two guidelines on the Front Porch when it comes to topics! No political or religious topics. AARP has several groups that cover those topics.  The Front Porch has always been a safe haven for those that want to get away and relax! 

There is a feeling that it is almost impossible to change someone's mind on the Internet.

Thank you!

Welcome all newbies to AARP and Our Front Porch!  There is plenty of information and things to do around the site and there's always room for new folks here.  


Now, in keeping with Dave's request, here's a little bit about me:  I'm a midwesterner who's not yet retired. That being said, I'm going to start off here with just a few of my favortie hobbies:


1.  Love surfing the net.Related image



2.  There's nothing like reading....

....until I fall asleep while doing it!

3.  And a nice massage....

...leaves me purrrfectly relaxed.


Anyway, those are my top three hobbies.  I'll list a few more later.  Do forget to list your fav things to do. And again...Welcome!
