    ==========================================
    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.

    Welcome Tom! Occasionally we get a few groups posting about dances and events but not very often. I remember the days of the badges and conventions. That seems to happen less often these days. We have had some interesting debates as to why! I think these kinds of digital gathering places have replaced many of the things that used to take place.

    It's a nice idea to have a forum dedicated to singlehood. Why not?

    I know what you mean. Baking is more science than art and you can't be as creative with it....lol. I'd be happy to assist in helping you with your backing though?

    Hi everyone. I'm Babs, a single lady, living near Philadelphia. I watch professional wrestling (and worked in it for a little bit!). I like watching horror movies and reading mysteries. I've always been an avid reader and I write. I believe in the power of the written word, so I do journal. I make jewelry and paint watercolor badly. Lol. I'm a good cook, but not a baker.

    At first, I wondered why I received an email from this thread, as I had never posted to it. But then I read your post. Wrestling? Horror movies? A reader and writer? Am I your brother from another mother?

    Nice to meet you. I've been to Canada once during a wrestling trip. I was in Quebec City and Montreal. I really like Quebec City. And Tim Hortons. Lol. I prefer writing short stories too. Do you have a preferred genre?

    I'm an "old school" wrestling fan so I don't watch as much as I once did. I've always liked Sting ever since the Blade Runner days. These days I think AJ Styles is a great worker. On the independents, I like Jessicka Havoc and Jordyn Grace.

    I'm fond of the New Generation Era, but I started watching 1992. Blade Runners...haven't heard that name in forever. I'm a LuFisto fan. Have you been to Shimmer, Shine, or WSU?

    I catch ROH every now and then these days. I think you just turned me on to Shimmer! Just watched one of their promos. Looks exciting!

    I watch the old stuff mostly, but still kinda know what's up in the Indie scene. Definitely look up Shimmer, those women are great. You might like old Sara Del Rey stuff too. I'm thinking of cosplaying at Mania next year - either Paul Bearer or Bertha Faye. Haven't decided yet.

    I'm thinking that if you could pull off Paul Bearer, that would really be something. I will look and see if Shimmer is playing on tv in my area.

    No. But did search for her and I think I want to be her when I get older. She's still big, colorful lady with a huge personality.
