========================================== My name is Tom and I live in Pearisburg VA, in the mountains of SW Virginia. I'm retired from a government position in Washington DC. I've been divorced since 9/2001 and live by myself. I have a daughter, a sister and a brother, all in the Washington metro area. My ex was 340 when I married her. She lost some of it with the weight loss surgery, and gained some of it back when she had our daughter. We were married 13 years, but our breaking up didn't have anything to do with her size. What I want to know is what happened to all the BBW events? The Washington chapter of NAAFA used to have dances on a regular basis. I haven't seen an ad for one in ages. I occasionally surf the few sites that list events. But in many cases, the events will be for three years ago. Either keep the site up to date or take it down. Many of the events are simply too far away-Atlanta, New York, Chicago, etc.
