    Miss my BBF folks

    I spend a lot of time on FB, but miss the interactions we used to have here. Doesn't look like anyone is selling anymore I really liked some of the deals I got, and the interaction with the sellers. And the lively discussions sometimes in Off Topic Chat! Will keep coming back to check in and see whose around that I might know.
    Be Happy Now.

    I also miss everyone, in my opinion they hey day for me was a couple years before we moved to the country so that would be 10+ years ago, OH MY, I remember the freebies, the prizes, the stories we told, the deals we exchanged and buying and selling, I got such great stuff, I kept an Excel Spread sheet, but my old computer died after being hit by lighting in a freak storm and I can't look at it anymore. Once we move out here there was not internet for several years and dial up was horrible because the phone lines crackled so much it would kick be off and SLOW OMG. Then we got DSL 3.0, still so slow I couldn't even watch a Utube video with out the buffering but now TA DA CABLE. We never would have thought Cable would come out this far, it's still far from perfect we still get buffering if we try to watch a movie on Amazon Prime, but I can get to watch things from the library and my husband is looking into classes by Lynda.com because its free, the library has 50 licenses so only 50 people can be on at a time, so do it in the middle of the night when everyone is in bed. Now that I'm retired, thank God the miles I was putting on my car going back and forth to town, I hope to spend more time visiting and maybe we can get the buy and sell board active again and I can start a new spread sheet. Freebies are pretty much unheard of now but that is how I figured out what I liked and they always included great coupons. So folks I will do my best to visit this board and with a little work we can bring it back to what it used to be.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    I miss them days too. There were some nights I couldn't wait to get on because I knew how much fun it was. I would often laugh out loud and laugh tears

    Many are over at FB - they tried a group there, but it didn't last Some have spun off and started other groups, but not all BBF peeps.
    Be Happy Now.

    I started the BBF group on FB a few years ago. There were about 70 people from here who joined, and literally only 2-3 of us ever did any of the posting. I got tired of talking to myself, so I got rid of the group.

    Just like with this thread here..........everyone wants to know where everyone is, or what's going on..........but no one ever wants to post anything else or contribute anything.

    I posted on my FB page, asking my BBF friends to come back to the board. I hope we get some more action
