I went to this place last night. What a fun time. Fantastic singers. I think they should be pros and not waste their time singing for free. Lots of people up dancing as well. I don't drink, but everybody was raving about the happy hour. I think it was like 2 or 3 for one. I'll definitely do this again.

For those that may not have heard this band before, sign-up and give yourself a treat. They make music the "old fashioned way", they play it. It's not tracks coming out of somebody's computer while a guy stands there holding a guitar, singing karaoke.

They are South Florida's best party band. (I was at a July 4th party where they played and it was attended by over 300 people. Yeah, they are that good.)

STRANGEST Compliments you have received!!
Posted: 7/6/2013 11:25:53 AM
A number of years ago, I was returning from lunch at work. I was walking through the office lobby and a group of female employees were standing there talking among themselves before returning to their desks when one of them asked if they could talk to me for a minute. I, of course, said yes.

The one that had asked me to stop then said, "A bunch of us girls were talking at lunch and we just want you to know that we really enjoy working for you...because we can talk to you just like you're one of the girls." Huh???

I still haven't figured out if that was truly a compliment, but we all worked together several more years. I THINK it was a compliment.

What a joke.

Today I received an email from a woman that says she wants to meet me so she can see if everything I say in my profile is true.

I go to her profile which says she is 57, but the first line of text says she is really 66. Need I read further?

She wants to hold me to a higher standard than she holds herself. I don't think so.

Friday, May 3rd at The City Pub in Deerfield Rock On with Clasic Rock Therapy
Posted: 5/3/2013 9:14:19 AM

This is Maxnodif, the hostess at City Pub. Since you were here last, the floor has been expanded to 1000 sq.feet.


1000 sq feet sounds like a lot, but it is really only about the size of my living room 30x30.

As the hostess, aren't you violating the event posting rules? I thought they pretty clearly state the employee of a venue may not post an event at that venue. Hmmmm.

This place (City Pub) keeps finding ways to keep me away. First it was a smoking venue for years. They stopped that and now there is a cover charge for nothing but a neighborhood bar in a strip shopping center. The band is great. The venue is...well, let's be kind and just say no thanks.

Send an email directly to the host of the event you are planning to attend and ask them. They are the only person that can give you an answer. Posting you question in the forum or even on the event thread is likely a waste of your time.

Are they really who they say they are ????
Posted: 12/17/2012 5:51:02 PM
I've been on and off many of the sites both free and pay since 2007 and except for meeting people face to face at an event, I feel online dating is nothing more than entertainment.

This month I've met women twice for a drink. The first seemed to go well so I asked her if she would like to go to dinner and dancing. She asked if she could bring her girlfriend. Huh? I explained why not. She persisted so I told her to forget I asked. The second claimed she only drank occasionally, but downed two martinis in under an hour while showing no effects at all. Next!

I've met and made some wonderful friends at the events, but just sticking to online doesn't work for me.

They can be anyone they think they are or want to be as long as they are behind the screen and keyboard. If you really want to meet someone, get out to the events and if there is no event in your area, start one. It really isn't that difficult.

Why is dating and meeting people such a challenge?
Posted: 5/6/2012 11:02:51 AM
I consider my “dating pool” to be single women in their 50’s and 60’s. So far (approaching 6 years), I have found that, within this group, many women genuinely want to be in a romantic relationship, but simply do not have time for the following reasons, none of which are “wrong”, they just “are”:

Many still work full or part-time or volunteer, which occupies many hours each week;

They may be taking care of a parent or two;

They have children in the area that, of course, they want to see;

They have grandchildren that they want to baby sit so their children can have time to themselves;

They have friends or family that visit or they need to go visit;

They have girlfriends they need to see and do “girly” things with;

They have a hobby or two that I don’t enjoy (golf, tennis, boating, etc,);

They have all the routine “stuff of life” that every woman has (hair, nails, shopping);

All of the above seems to leave 4 hours on a Saturday night twice a month available for dating.

Unfortunately, this 8 hours a month is not enough time to build a close, caring, loving relationship.

Yes, many of the above could be enjoyable shared activities AFTER a relationship has been created, but not things to do together BEFORE a relationship has been created.

Many also feel they have spent most of their life, until now, pleasing others and see the time now as “Me” time. A time to do whatever they want, when they choose to do it without consulting or discussing it with anyone. I can completely understand that feeling and cannot fault it, however, it does not lead to cultivating a relationship.

Also, some are snow birds that are merely looking for some South Florida entertainment for a few months.

I absolutely admire and envy the full and complete life they have built without a man, but they are at least fooling themselves into thinking they have time for a relationship.

Of course, I hear, “If a woman really wants to be with you, she will MAKE time for you.” Unfortunately, I don’t want to be in the same category with an oil change.

Soulmate Relationships
Posted: 3/4/2012 6:04:00 AM
A soul mate story:

It was Monday, July 6, 1964. I was 20 years old and a student in a commuter 4-year college. I lived in New Jersey in a two family house with my parents on the first floor and my grandparents on the second floor.

On mornings when I had a late class, I would spend time upstairs with my Grandmother since both of my parents worked. I would have coffee in her kitchen while I read the daily newspaper and we would chit-chat. That particular morning there was a story in the newspaper recounting a horrible accident that had happened in another part of the state. It seems that a family was returning to their car after watching the fireworks celebration. In order to reach their car they had to cross some railroad tracks. Since they had all the typical equipment that families bring to those type of events (chairs, blankets, snacks, drinks, etc.) when they reached the railroad tracks, the adults told the 9-year old girl to wait on this side of the tracks while the adults brought the equipment across and they would then return for the daughter. Unfortunately, they never returned. While they were crossing the tracks, they were struck and killed by a train they never saw and never heard while the little 9-year old girl watched.

My reaction as I read this was, of course, horror and I said out loud, "Oh, my God! Who will take care of the little girl?" This was simply the most terrible thing I had ever read and apparently shook me to my core because I never forgot this story. Over the ensuing years, whenever I would hear or read about other horrible events, I would always wonder, "I wonder who took care of the 9-year old girl." She never had a name in my thoughts, she was just "the 9-year old girl", but I always thought about her and hoped she was fine in spite of that horrible accident she witnessed and the dramatic change it had made in her life.

Life for me progressed rather normally. I finished college. Served in the military. Got married and had two children. This marriage, after many years, ended in divorce and in the spring of 1993 I found myself at a divorce support group. Of course, there I met many other people. I became friends with some and we did many, many activities together. Out of this group of friends there were two of us that seemed to have quite an attraction for each other and we started doing things together without the others and as you likely have guessed we began dating. During the fall of 1993 I asked her if she wanted to go on a hay ride which was always fun in the fall in New Jersey. She said yes she did, but unfortunately she just could not bring herself to do it. One of her other friends had told her that it was a "scary hay ride" and one of the scary jokes they played on the riders was a make believe train would come out of the corn field and appear to hit the hay wagon and she just could not put herself through that since her parents had been hit by a train.

You guessed it. She was the 9-year old girl and I was the person to "take care of the 9-year old girl". It was a wonderful marriage until she died unexpectedly a few years ago.
I believe it was the Law of Attraction that brought us together, since I continually thought of her for 30 years and at precisely the correct time in our lives we were brought together.

Soulmate Relationships
Posted: 2/13/2012 5:03:10 AM
I have had a female friend for almost 10 years. She knew my wife and I before my wife died. When my wife died, this friend became my guardian angel. She called just about every day to check up and make sure I was eating. Her and one of her girl friends would "drag" me out of the house to start experiencing the world again.

We "fit" very well emotionally. The problem we seem to have is that neither has a physical attraction to the other. I like women that are shorter than I am and she is taller. She likes men with salt and pepper hair and mine is still all brown.

The joke we tell people is that we will remain friends until we are in our 90's. By then she will have shrunk to be shorter than me and I will have salt and pepper hair plus neither will be able to see well enough to notice. Then we can be a couple.

Cell phones and automobiles
Posted: 1/19/2012 7:53:24 AM
My car has bluetooth built into it. If I receive a call, I press one button on the steering wheel to answer the phone and then speak as if I were speaking to a passenger in the car. To dial a call, I press the same button and just speak the number I want the car to call and it dials the number. It also has some pre-programed numbers so I can just press the button and say things like "Call home" and it dials my home phone number. I feel this is in no way any more dangerous that talking to someone else in the car. Text? Never unless the car is parked.

A friend of mine has a smart phone that will also read to him any incoming texts and then asks, "Would you like to respond?" and if he says yes, he just speaks the words and the phone sends the text response. Sounds like magic, but a few times he has found himself in trouble because the phone must have misunderstood him and sent the wrong answer.
