I don't know if you've discovered Facebook yet but I love it! It is a wonderful
networking site where you can reconnect with friends and family! It's basically a personal web page where you can upload photos, info about yourself and post what you are up to with your daily ramblings! There are also tonnes of fun applications you can add to your page! It is a great site and I spend many, many hours on it!
Also, another great feature on Facebook is you can create groups! I have created several. Feel free to check them out an join if they appeal to you!
Check it out!
