    You can join a social group!!!!!

    YOU CAN JOIN A SOCIAL GROUP!!!!!

    Click on your name and look at the lower right side of the page, and YOU CAN JOIN A SOCIAL GROUP!!

    OK, 50+'rs, help me out here.

    We need to think of what "social groups" are appropriate for 50+'rs.

    I would think NOT "social diseases" but one never knows.

    How about some titles for 50+ "social groups!"

    Sorry, this is worth a serious reply.

    I'm a member of Ravelry.com, a fantastic, large on-line community of knitters, crocheters and spinners (of yarn, not bikes). It has groups and friends and more, like what BF is adding now. Based on the groups I've seen there, I might suggest for here:

    50+ 'Bent Riders
    50+ Racers
    Bike 'n Knit (for cyclists who are also knitters)


    I've run out of ideas and these names aren't especially creative but this gives you an idea. Ravelry includes groups for discussion of favorite TV shows, religious groups, political persuasion, recipes, you name it.

    Okay, seriously? Here's your chance, DF, for that 65+ group.

    Not fair.

    My first post was purposely neutral (well, almost neutral) on purpose.

    I was interested in how it would be taken!

    Is there a social group for people (like me) who are too dumb to understand what this thread is even talking about?

    Didn't think so...I'm gonna go eat some pie all by myself.

    There are some folks in front of the curve, some with the curve, and some behind the curve!

    I thought the 50+ Forum WAS a social group. Sort of Foo for the Geritol generation.

    Thank you. For a while I wondered if I was too dense and missing an inside
    joke here or something. Then my cynical side started taking over but you
    beat me to the punch. Now I'm just enjoying the irony of social groups
    needing to join a social group. I love it.

    Neutral? Your original post was dripping with so much sarcasm I nearly slipped and fell on the floor.

    So I reply in kind and I'm not fair?

    Get over yourself DF.

    I like doing something while I watch TV or vanpool and I especially like the creations. That said.... I understand the frustration though. I've had many a night when I thought I'd sit and relax and knit while watching TV, only to knit a few rows, rip them out, start over, knit some more, rip it out, start over............ and 2 hours late I got NOTHING done. I've put it away in the closet, only to pull it out a day or two later and begin again. I've really wanted to do this for many years after seeing the beautiful projects others created. It's a little like clipless riding -- it takes practice, practice, practice. I will not quit!

    I didn't see Club Tombay, I should think that would be a worthy group.

    Do they actually sell Geritol anymore? What's the new Geritol paradigm? The new anti aging thing?
