Welcome Patrick -

I think adding some hot models to your bench pictures would improve sales - and you'll see there are some really hot guys here that would probably volunteer :)

Hey Patrick!

I am with you when it comes to the boring little towns. There is nothing like Los Olas Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale.

In my own way, I wish to extend to you a WARM WELCOME here at the AM forums. Here you will find the encouragement, communication, understanding, support, some cries, some laughter, and many of your questions relating to HIV/AIDS answered.

With the consideration of implementing a Positive Mental Attitude, it will also assist you on your journey in this life as well as having a Positive Impact on your immune system and your overall health.

In fact, through your Positive Mental Attitude, it will help you push forward through ALL of the obstacles on your path that you are now walking on.

In the interim, you may want to start taking a multi-vitamin, and some Omega 3, because it is all up to YOU where YOU want to be.

Exercise at least three times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes per day, as this will do you good to help keep that unecessary stress away.

Hello and welcome to our lovely community.  I am sure you will find this site is very informational, helpful and also loving and accepting of lots of different opinions.  This site will be what you make of it.  It can be dysfunctional and frustrating at times but mostly its warm and inviting.

Feel free to post as much or as little as you like about yourself at the time you feel it is appropriate.  I personally have put my entire life on this site and it has yet to bite back.  I consider this place a second family to me and love being here and sharing what I can with those I can.

Anyway…. Welcome, you have received my canned greeting deeming you WORTHY of further communication!!!

Andrew


And in honor of Eldons Handshake of Doom I present to you the SPLODING high five!

LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

thanks all

I tested positive in oct '02, and generally have it under control. I left Ft Lauderdale 6 months ago cuz it was killing me, and now live almost in the boonies. In hopes of averting cabin fever I am looking forward to passing some time with you all.

I just started renting some floor space in a local pottery studio, so soon I will once again have this stress-reduction technique back in hand; I was hoping to have some new drums ready by christmas but instead I got slammed with orders for slings, my other day-job! ;D

Welcome, Patrick,

I thought Athens was still hip.  Shows how much I know.  I guess the B-52s are no longer au courant.

I've never heard of a ceramic drum before.  I've heard of slings but have been in one only once, for a very short period...

Athens is a nice enough place, though out of 100 bars nestled in downtown around the university, there is currently not one gay bar.

the new music coming out of the "scene" seems as eclectic as ever, I like Cosmic Charlie, a Dead cover band.

Welcome to AM!

Slings, huh?

I hear you need models for pictures.

I'll do it.  I'm a pretty narcissist who enjoys swinging about like a monkey.  ;)
