I bought my computer at the end of 1999. Curiosity made me check out the Chat room listings and the rest is history. I live on the shore of Connecticut and for anyone who doesn’t know. My name is MIKE. LOL.
I am most fond of Vocal music of the 60s like The Beatles, the Beach Boys, The 4 Seasons and the Association. I love harmony singing and I love to join In with roomies who indulge. I have been to HUGYFEST 2001, 02, 03 and 05, and to ROCS in 2003, 04 and 05. I have also been to places that I would have never dreamed of going to, if not for the, like Los Angeles, Pennsylvania, Tucson, Dallas, Tampa and Boise. Because of one absolutely great roomie, Darlene, REVOLVER1266, I was privy to see the original home of the Beach Boys.
My favorite moments have been when we have gotten together in person. There are times when the geniuses of wit in here “gel” and one has to gasp for air the laughter is so non-stop. I always recommend that people go to the parties and meet the other roomies. In doing so, one can make the distinction between the “real people” and the “not so real people”. When you go back to the chat room after having met that person you can see that person when they type in the room. You can see their expression and know their humor better. There are people that I have met here on the computer that I am now proud to call my friends, and would now truly miss them. I recently bought a new computer because I want to continue to participate in the chat room and keep in touch with my friends. One thing we need to do is remember that there are real people on the other side of that computer screen and we should not forget our manners.
In closing I just want to say that I have seen places and met so many delightful people, all because I clicked on to this chat room 6 years ago. It’s been a great experience and I truly hope that my contribution has been a positive one.
