Hello Dee .....
I'm sure your not from Illinois staying now in Colorado!
And that wasn't a pass from an old man!!!
I knew a Dee ... and she was the wife of a very good friend of mine who passed away close to 2-years ago. Of course, Dorothy was her real name - but Tom, her husband, had been calling her Dee since the mid-70's since I met them. I know what you mean about losing people! Sometimes it's tough!
Like Karen said, try the Daily check-in. It's an assortment of things. In fact, I just wrote an ungodly long post on medicare ... to try to help one of the members apparently about to reach 65.
It will bore the heck out of you. It's good reading if you've got insomnia!
