Re: For those alone at Xmas!Or working!!!!

Mostly I have been alone on this holiday. I did spend a few hours with my Daughter's family yesterday, that was special. But mostly, I am home alone with my cats and a hot fire in the woodstove and some good radio...if not live radio, then a few reruns of "the late show" http://minnesota.cbslocal.co...

Re: Online dating; here we go again !!!!

Hey !!! I'm off Women...for good this time.

Very few -ish minded ladies near me.
Relationships last a few months til they

It seems the few that'll date me are intriged
by the selfsufficient-ish lifestyle,
til they find out about the work involved.
