My real name is Oprah and I live in Maui part time ....

But seriously, if we could get together for lunch or coffee or something, I’m game. Love to meet posters’ names I recognize.

Well, I’m not going to Blast you for you voicing your opinion, but you’re right because if you look at online Newspapers & read comments that people make there, they use their names (at least most of them do) & most of the time they do say what’s on their minds but at least they try to be nice & they get their point across. Don’t live in TV anymore but where I live now you better not make a neg. comment or a neg. joke because the people here call you a a$$hole, p_ _ _ k or about every other 4 letter word they can think of. The funny thing is you can get your point across without all the cursing. Like some guy that worked with troubled kids told me one time it’s called P.P.P. (**** poor parenting) & they didn’t learn language like that in school. So now you got my input on the subject & I never cursed at you or said anything Neg. to you. Have a great day & God Bless. PS: Am I allowed to say GOD!

This idea sounds good, but it's not. I post on the Facebook websites "Villages, Florida", "Villages Talk", "Villages World of Mouth" and "Village Insider". Those who don't know, your entire facebook page is available, photo, name, everything on your FB page and yet posting there is not much different than here. The big difference is there are more non-Villagers than TOTV, local residents from Wildwood, Fruitland Park, Summerfield and Lady Lake. Most every subject discussed here is discussed there, sometimes first before here.
