Hi All! I guess I am gul=ilty of contributing to the lack of activity here as well, although it's not due to FB (I'm only on there once in a while and rarely post). I like this format a lot better! Unfortunately, it seems that I cannot get my daily teaser through my gmail account for some reason and that was the trigger that brought me back here often. It used to go to my work email, but since I quit and exclusively use gmail, I can't get them and sadly, I guess I am operating on "out of sight, out of mind". I miss you guys and hope I can figure out my issue and at the very least look at my postit that I just put on the laptop.

That all said...HI ALL! I have had quite an exciting year so far since I quit my job and decided to start a business. I don't have a shop yet, but hope to by the beginning of the year.

I remember Psychic Master as well and hope to see you again soon on here!

Hello Braingle Family! I miss you all! I've been dealing a lot with a spine problem, and just medication side effects. I hope everyone is doing well. I can't write more right now, but I'll be back asap.

Life... can be so many things... how can anyone ever think they are RIGHT? HAhahahahahahaha!!!!!

Thanks for the welcome back. I do drop by occasionally and have a look at what's happening but don't post very often.

I must say, reading some of the posts above about Facebook, that I've always viewed that and Braingle as very different sites. I use Facebook for finding old friends (no I'm not a stalker, that was a complete misunderstanding ) and keeping up with faraway family. I have never done anything else on there because I don't trust the thing with its constant policy changes and altering privacy settings but forgetting to say.

I always used Braingle to make new friends, I didn't know anyone on the site prior to joining it. I know the site isn't all bells and whistles, but I trust it and I find it comforting that in the last 4 years when I've only looked in infrequently, it hasn't changed at all. I do wish some old friends were still here, maybe that's what keeps me coming back. My main reason for not being here very often is a lack of time; between work and family commitments there aren't a lot of spare minutes left to fill with Braingling any more. Maybe I should be pleased about that, but it would be nice to have a few extra golden moments where I could do what I wanted without feeling like I'm ignoring my responsibilities.

Like now, on Braingle at work!!

Yep, Freddy, you're right. I am starting a tea shop. I am trying for the Old Fair Oaks Village area, but space is limited, so we'll see. I am negotiating a lease at the moment, but I will make sure to let everyone know.

Jay and Froggy, thanks! I hope to pop on more often. I still haven't figured out the email issue...I may have to shoot a message to Jake.

Froggy- you are so close, maybe you could make the trek up when I have my grand opening?

Hi snappy. I agree, how is the shop going?

As for us here at the frog pad, we have now increased by one - granddaughter was born about 2 weeks ago weighing in at 8.5 lbs and 21 inches long. She is so cute and pink! So, now sgt and I have 2 grandsons and 1 granddaughter!

I will try to put it in simple, yet confusing words.

We have idiots in office that think their party line goals are more important than taking care of the people who voted them into office!

Their lives are pretty much secured... even after only a few years in office they will get a pension, medical, perks... etc... and we get to pay for it with higher taxes and less money in our accounts so they can mess with us.

Clear? I wish it was; but I really do see why a lot of people like to be paid "under the table" to minimize their tax burdens.

Randy, I couldn't have said it better! Very sad situation we have in the economy and in those who are in office... So many small "mom & pop" businesses going under and way too many people without jobs due to the "improvements" (really) being made.

Yes, snappy - a lot of cuddling.

Sounds like our economies are very similar.
Every week when I go shopping at the 'mall' yet another shop is closed for business.
As you say, it is the small shops... the little people.

20 years ago we used to go to the corner shop [deli] for milk and bread etc...Our family and friends would say "We go to the supermarket.. It is soooo much cheeeeper!"
We'd say.. you got to support the little guys, because when he is gone we will all be screwed by the supermarkets.

And we are.
