So, whaddaya think?
« on: December 04, 2006, 11:22:00 AM »
With the revelations of Eldon and Rev. Mike, I was wondering whether I might/should/ought to do a brief bio.

I think I did it a year or two ago. I think. Of course, there are a lot of new folks here.

It might give a little more balance to my rantings knowing where I have come from.

Or, would it just be something nobody would be interested in?

So, whaddaya think?

HUGS,

Mark

Are you new here?





KIDDING!!! YOU FRIGGIN OLD TIMER!  I think it would be a good thing!  I have wanted to do one again but damnit I hate typing about myself.  I have spent the better part of 3 decades building up this humorous wall of defiance!!!!

Sure, go ahead.   We have so many new folks, they don't know a lot of us oldsters.

If you're comfortable you definitely should.

I know I found your posts on your experiences with meds (Crixivan I think if my memory serves me right) were very enlightening.

Absolutely, Mark.  In LARGE type and bold so that all of us can see it.  :)  I know that when I first ventured here, I was so grateful for the posts which referenced or linked back to threads in which you had told us newer folks who you are.  Win
