Time to Go


Carol in Pgh.

Recommended Posts

Haven't been on much lately and now that my son is off to college (with his computer), I bid you all farewell. It has been wonderful knowing all of you each with your own outstanding and unique qualities! So to Miriam, Wendy-Ann, Robin, Rachan, Tony, the Good Doctor, Chris, Diane and all, I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family even though it was a short while. If I ever get the chance, I will pop in to say hello. It was a fun ride. And to the namesake of this board...Eric, I wish you well with everything, I wish you peace and a lifetime of happiness.

Carol (Twin) - You are not ever really "gone" from this message board. It's just that from time to time we all "cease to post" for a bit...for various reasons!!

I know you will be around and it has been my pleasure and honor to get to know you!! You're right, this is like "family"...you can't check out of your family and you can't check out of here!!

Love ya,

Miriam & TJ

Carol, there are netbooks available for $99. every week in the newspapers around here. They are smaller and lighter than a regular notebook, and can do everything you need for webbrowsing, email, and chatting here. You should check out the sales and find one...Acer seems to be big into netbooks.

I gave one to my daughter earlier this year and she uses it for almost everything...homework, FaceBook, eBay, whatever.

It's better than being totally disconnected.

Sometimes I need time for myself, and not having access to a computer is a great excuse. I could buy myself a small and portable computer, but choose not to. I prefer having the session limitations that the desktop sets for me - I worry that I already spend too much time on-line. Sometimes I do not log in for weeks, and then things change, and I have time again.

Many people are different, they have to stay connected - like my husband when he insists on taking cellphone calls no matter where we are or what we're doing. (What's the point of voicemail then, I tell him to check the caller id and only take the calls that might be emergencies).

The good thing here is, there are no formalities on this site, people leave and come back all the time, no explanations are required. We have all been moved by Eric's music, and can't stay away too long.

I do want you to know that you're a fun person who will be missed during your absence. I expect you will remain, as I will, an Eric Carmen fan for life.

Sorry to see you go... hope you have a "Change of Heart" and find you can't live without us...:D

And speaking of reasonable... as much as I detest them, check out Wal Mart's computer section... not only are their current models reasonable, but... they always have some "close-outs" locked away... just ask, I did... Got a nice Toshiba "on-the-cheap." laugh

Try the library and I'm going to assume you have a cell phone, so ask your provider how much for internet on the cell.

No, no cell phone...I hate those things, but I do have to go out and purchase one for my youngest son so He can have it at college with him. Right now he has the phone provided by the school. I am using my daughter's computer at the moment which I will have very little access too because she uses it for her college classes all the time. I will get on when I can. It is nice to see I will be missed. You folks are the best there are smile

God Bless and Love, Carol
