O.K., so I want to increase my social life, so I am going to talk like I just met you at some social gathering, because this online communication stuff is still fairly new to me. So, in response to your greeting, I would try to learn about what else we might have in common, besides this website, and not in common.
I have never been to Saint Louis. I have visited my cousin in either Columbia, or Jefferson City, (Jeff City as she calls it). It has been so long ago, and she has gone back and forth between the two a couple of times, so I do not remember exactly which one I was in. I have been to the Ozarks once. I rained and was flooding that year, (1986 or 7). How long have you lived in Saint Louis?
Thanks for the welcome! Your message found me doign very well today, thanks as I am so glad that I found this website and signed on. I live in a small South African coastal town that has an inordinate number of retired Dutch Reformed Church dominees (a Calvinistic religion beyond belief.) Their petty religion-raddled brains may make for good sport for any outspoken atheist, but good grief, what tedious, self-righteous, morally smug people the evangelical types are - so am very keen to join discussions on this website.
