    Hello my young friend, 

       Wondered if anyone would contact this 69 yr old gal.  I am a people person from NJ and in Pa 6 years.  In those years have met lots of folks but can't say I have friends.  I was popular in my home town but struggling here.   Glad you said Hi and will try to learn this program.  I'm so new to the computer.    Maybe you can help me.   Would like to see photos of your baby.   My two children are grown but my baby is "Peanut" a toy fox terrier.  He is the love of my life.   

         Thanks for the notice,    Nancy   from Easton, Pa

    Hi, Jackie!
    I'm so happy to see your smiling face among my "Friends."  The GB system just puts my friends' pictures up for me without notifying me they are there, but that's okay.  Welcome!  I'm delighted to have you as a pal.  BTW, your profile is fascinating!  Take care.

    I saw the video. I think I'll watch it a million times before I go to bed. hee hee! It is beyond fantastic!!!

    *Arrrrgh* the show just makes me want to puke sometimes. I hated his version of hell. It was just such horrible filler and a not-very-convincing out of body experience. And like anybody on that show stays married for 10 years (like Lulu and what'shisface were supposed to have been in Luke's hell).

    Doesn't Bobbi look like that little doll who plays the teacher that Kris Kringle falls in love with in "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"? Her face is so pulled back!

    I don't know who to think the killer is. I was thinking it was Coop during the black and white ball but then sometimes I think Johnny might be whacko too.

    We should totally start a GH group!

    Hope all is well with you.
