Hi, just joined, anyone out there living in or close to Menden, Germany ?
Response from CaroleAH made on 27th Dec 2018 13:35:37
Hallo, Taff! Wie geht's? Hope you had a good Christmas. I'm nowhere near Germany but happy to chat preferably in English as my German is very rusty! 🙂

I am an attractive retired lady (66), living in south Somerset, interested in life’s opportunities. I am looking for a genuine, like minded, retired male companion, for friendship. I am very easy company, happy, fit and active, and love life. I like my independence, but miss the ‘sharing’ aspect of life, and wonder if there is a gentleman who occasionally would like the company of a joyous companion, for travel and other pursuits.

Welcome boson5. it would be nice to hear your views on the subjects on the forum and Speakers Corner.
My brother whimsically nicknamed me is Higgs, how did you arrive at naming yourself boson?

Response from CaroleAH made on 15th Aug 2018 22:49:53
I had to Google it, Tina 🙂 and this is what Wikipaedia says : "The Higgs boson (or Higgs particle) is a particle in the Standard Model of physics. ... The Higgs boson is very massive compared to other particles". So now you know .......... or, if you are like me, the explanation has gone over the top of my head!!!!
Response from Yodama made on 15th Aug 2018 22:56:57
Question marks Tina?
Higgs ( me) and boson5 ( who is introducing himself) I find coincidental
Higgs boson is the so called God particle in physics, tricky little blighter to pin down as it seems to exist and not exist at the same time, it is very good at hiding and is the particle that is fundamental for the existence of mass.
The quantum field is magical.
If this seems obscure, my apologies.

Sorry for not getting back to people. I could not find my way back to my own posts, let alone hold a conversation. Am I being thick or wot:)
Response from CaroleAH made on 7th Sep 2018 00:05:33
No not thick, Bosun 🙂 This site can be a bit difficult because unless someone responds to what you have posted, you can't always find your way back to what you have said - at least I have yet to find an easy way to do it. However, if someone responds to your comments you will see what they have said if you click on the white triangle in the turquoise box on the right-hand side of the screen. I automatically click on that to see if I have got chat messages or if there have been any comments on subjects which I'm interested in. You also need to tick the boxes in your profile (and save the changes) so that the site notifies you when messages have been added. Good Luck! 🙂

Hi Yodama, I chose "Boson5" because Higgs got taken. I used to teach physics, so CERN fascinates and bewilders me. Anyway, I live in Glasgow now near my family, having emerged from years of humanitarian aid in Doboj and Prishtine; living on a ketch in Andratx and then in Colmenarejo for many years. So I had not lived in an English speaking country for some sixteen years and Scotland twice that. I still have much catching up to do. Well, I have heard of Iron Maiden, which is more than they know on University Challenge... Enough of me!

Does anyone know what the number next to the word Reputation means on your profile?
Response from CaroleAH made on 11th Aug 2018 19:52:24
Hi Tina,
When people like the comments you have made or the photos, recipes, poems etc which you have submitted, they can click on the green thumbs up icon and your reputation score goes up a point ....... or if the red thumb is pressed, then you go down a point! 🙂
Response from TinaS4 made on 11th Aug 2018 20:08:23
Thank you Carole, no more mystery 🙂

why can't this site be like senior chatters, where you can see members profiles and then choose someone who has the same interests to chat to, I thought that was the idea of a chat room.. I find the instructions on this site far too long and boring to keep reading them, and they're not too clear either, and as for the instruction videos, I can't get sound or enlarge them so can't understand what they are showing.
Response from cuewell made on 5th Aug 2018 23:47:08
Hi Tina

I quite agree with you, I find this site hard to navigate around. If you open a notification, and click off by mistake, it gets deleted.

I am new to this chat thing, and thought this site was easy, but you have to play with it and click click click everything.

Keep plugging away like I do, you will get somewhere. I just use chat, that's is easy for me
Response from TinaS4 made on 7th Aug 2018 09:55:20
hi cuewill, how the hell do you communicate with people on here, its just a glorified forum as far as I can see, I remember the 'orange' chat rooms over ten years ago which were brilliant, loads of chat rooms for different ages and a quiz room, do they think the over fifties are incapable of using a key board or something :-/

Well come to the site, hope you enjoy silver surfers. I live in Hertfordshire so nice to see some who lives locally
Response from cuewell made on 10th Jul 2018 12:12:35
I find this site very difficult to sort out. It seems daft to delete notifications after reading them. You would think they would be saved like an email so you can go back and reply that way. Had to click, click, click to find you !!!!

Will give it another week, and asked around to see easier answering chat sites,

Seen some reviews with similar comments. New to this type of chat thing anyway, must be me haha

Hi, I am new to this site. Currently living in Wisconsin, USA. I will be traveling to the UK with my granddaughter in 2020. I would love to chat about your country. Thank you
Response from CaroleAH made on 29th May 2018 16:17:44
Hi Watercolorgal! How long are you coming over here for? Have you decided which areas of the UK you would like to visit? Being a proud Yorkshire lass, I would recommend a visit to this county but I'm sure that many other Silversurfers will say that their county is the best 🙂 Perhaps if you tell us what your interests are eg landscape, architecture, history, theatres etc etc we would all be able to advise you on the best places to see and visit. Don't do, as my Australian cousins did, and hire a car for two months and think that you can see the whole country! Yes, they drove from Heathrow Airport to Cornwall, Wales, the Lake District, Edinburgh, Yorkshire, the Cotswolds and places in between - over 8000 miles but they were absolutely exhausted and we're glad to get on the plane to go home.

You might get a better response if you reply to some posts too. I'm not sure how to join in with the group chats but that's another option.
