    If there are , probably feel intimidated, or are just quiet people,,the ones i'd like on here would be 'open' and probably a little bit extrovert with some great 'Banter'......i know quite a few that have a brilliant sense of humour,, a few John Inmans or Larry Graysons would be good.....lol

    I would love some openly Gay/Lesbians to come on here,who had a good sense of humour and enjoyed debating,,would certainly liven things up a bit,,not looking for argument,,it would be very interesting,,,after all we all believe in free speech,,

    How's your day?

    Had a nice chat with my cousin today.(in Wethers over breakfast)......she is same age as me.(but looks 20 years younger)...and is the loveliest lady you could ever meet,,we grew up almost like brother and and the sister i never had,,we share the same sense of humour,,and obviously many family traits among them being left handed,,and i asked her.....''when we eventually have children together do you think they'll be left handed?''.....after laughing and slapping me,,she said ''no but they'll be bleddy perculiar ''......love her.......lol
