Down here in DF this week and met up with Islaverde. What a charming woman. Gave me many insights to life in DF and I feel that I have made a new friend. This site is good for something after all!
What a nice post to wake up to! Thanks, conor. I feel as though I have a new friend too. :)

I've made several really good friends with people I've met thru the forum. Theres me telling my children, not to ever arrange meetings with people on the internet and then I go and do it LOL. I guess its always advisable to take precautions just in case someone turns out to be a weirdo

This meeting in IRL from Forum members is not as risky as other sites. We seem to "know" each other a bit more and have communicated a lot. I had the same experience with RVGRINGO and PAPPABEE in Ajijic, and hope to meet a couple of other Lakeside people when we return in August.

That, and, of course, when people meet, they usually do it at a public place.

That said, I invited about a dozen people I "knew" from another forum to my house for hors d'oeuvres before going to dinner, a few years ago.

No one was an axe murderer, though.

So far as I could tell.

:rolleyes:

Conor, glad that you' all could get together but found your closing statement(This site is good for something after all!) a little strange, hopefully tongue in cheek.

Yes. Tongue in Cheek. I am just a little bitter because I have seen an increase of bickering and other non informational banter in the last few months. For that reason I try not to post here too often anymore.

Sounds like not too much tongue in cheek after all. I think that these things are cyclical.
Could be a month or more before something that interests me pops up but I am eternally hopeful!
