      I think I had to wait for a day or so.. for a moderator to get around to Oking it as well... there isn't a reason for you to be denied.. it is only behind closed doors as it is the place where the rules are laxer and the language can be blue.

      Looking forward to seeing you there.

      I love social media as a whole.. it introduced me to my adopted daughter whom I have never met.. and we are starting a foundation to educate children in Kenya to start.. :D I come to SB at first to find out about vacation spots and such.. then I found the pub.. and havent left..:D You will be let in.. hell they let me stay..:D I live rural in BC canada.. so this is my social time.. The pub is an eclectic collection of people.. most with strong opinions.. and some who could use a miss manners class.. but overall I try to find current topics to discuss and debate the headlines... :D I hope to see you .. we get so few venturing in that new blood is few and far between...:D And you come across as someone who can hold his ground without having to resort to name calling.. an unappreciated talent. ;)
