With the football being on tonight and seeing some of the comment's posted by some of my friends don't we think that after the summer we have had maybe other sports and athletes will now get more recognition than over paid prima donna's who are only loyal to who pays them putting them in line with the oldest profession in the world...................

Another Fab weekend of Friends, food and dancing. Is it that alcohol lets you do things in your inebriated state that you wouldn't normally do or is it you being true to yourself? Thinking of what the future will bring and getting a lot of support from those close to me as to what route I should take.

Just sitting and thinking about what our friends mean to us and the support and care that they give us, and what we give to them. how far do we extend friendship and how much do we accept. Friendship is one of the things we have control over unlike family. As much as we would like our family to be Ideal and be what we have in our friends that doesn't happen in most cases. Anyway just thinking I have a good few friends that make my Life complete ..........................Friends are our chosen Family

Got this text ................so glad i am a man

But you are talking about you now (typical man) I'm talking about my problem!!! Man thinks about "a" woman thinks about "b" woman gets bored of "b". Wonders why man still thinking about "a". Wonders why "a" is more important than her. Woman cries and is jealous of "a" man is confused why woman is crying and so thinks about "A" with more focus to drown out the sound of tears.
