Yep, a little slow for sure. Getting the word out is the hard part, forums in general can take awhile to mature. We are working to get the word out and may have some clubs coming in that should add some life and new content. It does surprise me that out of over 300 members and more than 50,000 page views we don't have more people posting. The Villages seem like a very active and modern community.

Weather has been so cold...was a delight to wake up to a GORGEOUS pool day
We went to the pool at Orange Blossom Country Club...and wow it was crowded! Lots of folks have company Im sure
Thats pool is by far the prettiest....and from what I hear prices at the TikiBar there for Beer etc are the best

I read the forum everyday. While I am "from away", I want to keep up on the developments down in the sunny south ;D :bigthumbsup: My wife and I will be coming down on April 1st. (only 39 days) and we cannot wait. But we can only spend two weeks.... We agree with lovinit, the pool at Orange Blossom is one of the best. We bought our house 2 months after I got back from Iraq and are counting down the days till we can move in full time. Well keep those cards & letters coming.......

Hey Lovinit! You mentioned the PT Cruiser Club. How about telling me more about it. I recently purchased a 2005 Dream Series PT Convertable. Great Florida car with lots of Turbo power. 8)

I may be interested in the club. The Village Nomads takes up a lot of my spare time but I may be able to squeeze another pasttime. ;D

I also look at a couple other Forums in the area, The Reporter and the POA. They are not getting a lot of play either. I think it's going to take word-of-mouth and short introduction talks at the various club meetings.

If Jan hadn't given a short intro at a Village Nomads meeting I would not have known of the Talk of the Villages.

I think it's great but we must get the word out.

Lovinit, Hope we don't park in the same lot. I may try to drive away in the wrong car. Yes they call it Lava Red but depending on the sun it could be dark brown, Burgandy, etc.

I will send you an e mail.
