Hello to all, I'm new here and am an avid word game player. I have been playing a word game on paper for over 25 years and still not bored of it! It is now available as a phone App. called 'Cramble'. I'm told it was played in the trenches in WW1 but would love to hear from anyone who has any info about its history. Regards.
Hi friends, I am very new to the site and need a little help from good friends here.
I am hosting a large group of guests ( 20 ppl) over 4 days on Christmas holidays.
I need some ideas for some popular games and entertainment that may go down well for at least two evenings.
We are all over 50s and older couples and singles. All suggestions are highly appreciated and welcome.
I have read and enjoyed all of Diana Gabaldon’s books in the “Outlander” series.
Currently, I am watching the “Outlander” TV series. I believe there could be no finer man than Sam Heughan to play the part of Jamie Frazer. He’s excellent. Also, Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire Randall, is the best possible choice for the part because she and Sam together are the closest we’ll ever get to meeting Jamie and Claire Fraser.
I have been writing to penfriends for over fifty years, and thought it would be interesting to look for some new ones.
Not that there's anything wrong with the old ones, some have been with me through the trials and tribulations of life since we were in our early 20's and we're all now pushing 70.
With modern technology, penfriending is different to when I began, now there are lots of sites, many of them free, where you can search for a new friend to email or write to, whichever you want. There are some weirdos out there it has to be said, some who claim to come from cyberspace for example. And from my experience over the last couple of months, there are none who actually want to make a long term genuine friendship. Lots of them just want another number, another name, to add to their list, so they can brag about how many 'friends' they have. All full of good intentions at the start, but three emails in and they're usually gone.
And I've also learnt there are a lot of liars out there, and been warned against scammers, but they wouldn't get past me, and luckily none have tried. I have just come off the site I was on, still no genuine offers of friendship, nobody new to get to know. Maybe I'm too fussy/particular... well, actually I know I am but refuse to change what I am looking for, just to find an online penfriend.
So just in case anyone reads this and would also like someone to email, then feel free to reply.
My hobbies are many and varied from needlework to junk journalling, music, books, television, gardening, cookery. Afternoon naps and daydreaming are up there as well!
And I'll write to male or female, single or married.... see, I'm not that fussy after all! So long as we share some interests and are of similar age. Thanks for reading.
Any other 50+ equestrian enthusiasts out there with the time, motivation and finances to enjoy short UK or elsewhere equestrian ventures.
Combine with good food, a little wine just the whole travel experience.
I make handmade cards and have my own Card Exchange Group on Facebook where the 14 ladies and I exchange with a different member, as each month comes around, and in this way we learn a lot from the cards we receive.
There is no technique or theme so you just make whatever card you wish at the time and then you upload a photo to the Group for us all to see when you receive from your partner.
It is so relaxing getting down to making a handmade card and anything goes really in card making, so easy simple cards can bring joy into someone's life, through the post, instead of bills!
