Ain't this the truth?   2/23/2009

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: 'Free to good home. You want it, you take it.'

For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal.

It looked too good to be true, so he changed the ...

Curious about all the talk!   7/3/2005

After being in SFF now for a couple weeks..I have noticed that there is a lot of open talk about how this man/woman needs to have sex and have it often and how much they enjoy it.. <br> My question is.. is this really a turn on for a man/woman or is this intimidating to a man/woman that doesn't put everything out in ...

FORGIVE ME FOR CRYING   5/9/2005

“Forgive me for crying. I feel foolish” said I. “I mean Elvis has been dead for eleven years!” My young daughter and my man exchanged glances, but said nothing. <br> We left Naples in Florida early that morning and decided to take secondary roads to Memphis. The car was now rising and falling through the rural hills of Alabama. Radio cranked up, ...

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING   3/5/2005

After reading the current list of articles here, it is my opinion that too much time is wasted over nothing! We have freedom of speech so we can express our opinions freely. But that does not mean we HAVE to respond to anyone who we do not agree with here. There are college graduates with atrocious spelling and grammar. There are others with little skill or education, but they are ...

Not easy being a BLACK member of SFF   2/20/2005

My goodness! When the good Lord created planet earth and sent Adam and Eve to fulfil and multiply the earth, who ever thought that He would give humans the ability to choose their complexion too..the colour of the skin with which they were created. I guess the Almighty even gave some people the privillege of choosing their parents, including their parents' complexion as well. To those ...

Geese Flying South   2/5/2005

Next fall when you see geese heading south for the winter... flying along in V formation...you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way: <br> As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in V formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range, than if each bird flew on its own. ...

DESIGNING MULTI-SENIOR HOME   12/24/2004

The recent article about whether seniors could live together to pool expenses, etc. got me to thinking about what could be the building of the future! How about if we design a home for single seniors on the idea of the assisted living ones. I am envisioning a home which would house up to 12 men and 12 women. Each would have a large room which could be divided by a sliding accordian ...

I Understand The Vote Is Important-----Totally Confused!!!   10/22/2004

Does anyone else feel like there is too much negative hype circulating to try to make an informed decision?? I watched the debates, thought it was a "performance" each time.See TV ads that say "I approve this message" all the time, but all they do is "sling-mud" and don`t tell you what kind of a difference they could make to the situation.I feel like it is just ...

reply 2 Men Scram   10/12/2004

Ever notice how some single men, divorced, widowers, etc tend to have meal hours like regular people? Wow, how strange. I get home I put the spuds and vegies on to cook, maybe a small pot roast, heck I may even invite friends over for a meal. Should I sit and watch the pots boil or could I maybe go on line and say hi to some friends while I wait the 35 to 40 min cooking time (depends what I ...

My profile says 'no married'   9/2/2004

I just read the article by Fushimifox, about what is this site about. This person states in that article that you can't state in your profile you want no marrieds. My profile says that. I also state I don't want anyone who is already committed, or young enough that I could have given birth to him. I have no idea why they would allow a standard member to state that and not a silver ...

How do you feel about those that abbreviate all messages??   6/12/2004

I want to know why, if someone is trying to "make a point", that they only abbreviate or half-way spell it, so that you have to guess just what they are trying to say??Why has it become so popular to "slang", everything said, when most of the time, "to tell it like it is", with no misunderstood meanings, "get`s the job done"??? It is the same as if you were in a store, and a group starts ...

The "Art" of Saying NO.   6/7/2004

I have always had a problem with both my children, family, relatives, and friends with the "art" of saying NO and meaning it.I`ve never been selfish with anything I`ve ever had, even as a child.If I thought someone needed something I had, more than I did, I was silly enough to give it to them. A lot of people have "taken-me-to-the-cleaners", both family, friends, and strangers that I ...

I Don't See the Problem   6/5/2004

I have read soooo many articles and responses about wondering why the guys are on here, because they don't contact anyone or don't respond to a contact. I have not found that to be the case very often. I think the guys are looking just as much as the women. I have been contacted and have responded to some and have also gotten responses back to contacts that I made. Maybe it's what you are ...

Is it the Women against the Men?   6/5/2004

I sometimes just browse the articles and it seems that there is a division between the sexes in the comments. Maybe I am not seeing everything, but is sounds like there is some male bashing going on because they aren't knocking on your doors daily. There's a lot to be said for taking your time and I think the men want that as much as the women, maybe even more. I think men are more ...
