First - the month-long Halloween seasonI can't stand Christmas starting before Thanksgiving, but TV ads, store promos, and worst of all -Grade "B" horror movies shown all month long, just for Punkin Day are too much!Second, of course, ELECTION DAY- I'm almost to the point where I don't care who wins-just get it over with!!Afterwards-my dream is that all the MSNBC and Fox newspeople should lose their voices- or at least take vacations in Antarctica where there are no cell-phone towers-eh?
I am 64, female, retiring this summer. Nows the time to do things I've not gotten around to.I'm a big fan of F1 motor racing, but have never attended a race weekend. Anyone else fancy this, perhaps camping at the course? I have a small campervan.
If you are free on Thursday, March 1st and live in or around Bristol, my slightly quirky friend, Rupert Kirkwood will be talking about the amazing experiences he's had while kayaking around the U.K, you would not believe the wildlife he's encountered during his paddling adventures. He's very amusing and I can promise you an entertaining evening. https://www.explorersconnect.com/ec-stories-bristol-wildlif…
The idea of this seems to be good, just click on an interest and off you go, this may be the case for some who have tried but it can also be fraught with rip offs. Apparently Meet Up (faceless/robotic organisation) charge a fee to anyone using them as a launching pad, still trying to find out what this fee is! Then what happens is some individuals have created certain meet ups and charging people a set fee per year. How does this work?I would look at meet ups as something to possibly delve in to now and again, maybe join a few walks or whatever/whenever. Say for arguments sake someone set up a social group and decide to ask £5 per year from anyone joining, they could get 10/20/30 or more, even at 30 at £5 per head they are making £150 yet they could be here today, gone tomorrow, we may have an email address for them or even met them once or twice, but they could disappear in a whisper, of course reading the Meet up site, they don't involve themselves in any disputes with such things so just when something looks to be good it is ripe for fraud.I have asked one person with a group who wanted money up front (to cover his costs!!) to tell me how much he has had to pay the Meet up site but fobbed off...Humm Would you pay a sum up front for joining a meet up?
