"We are going to soon be an unschooling FOTR too, so I look forward to reading about your adventures. Commenting too -- any chance you could change the settings for comments to accept non-wordpress users? :)"
"If you're setting up dates *before* getting to know the person, you might be waiting a long time to find somebody you click with, I mean statistically speaking that's like searching for a needle in a haystack. What's your social scene…"
"Lots of good suggestions here!

Thanks Linda! It'd be great to see you sometime here if you visit. You can check out our Yahoo group for COOL if you search for Central Oregon Open Learners you should find it. I'm the moderator so I'll approve you for membership. You can be on there while you think about what you want to do.

I know, I'm weird. Anyway, this used to be my avatar online, and then got replaced for a time with some iridescent circles, which I got tired of, so I felt like maybe it was time to bring Violet back. :)
