    Much to my surprise Shrek tells me that I have hit the 10 year mark coming to the Singletree as moderator, and some of the more long time posters have been here for longer than that. How much longer, I do not know, but some of you have definitely been here for longer than I.

    I have seen a few folks meet here and get married, or possibly meet and NOT! get married. Folks have come here and shared their crab boils, their fig dancing, or pics of their winter wonderlands, their children, fig dancing, and pics of a bear scratching its back against a tree.

    We really need an icon for a cup of coffee as folks come here to sit a spell and visit.

    I have lurked around ST off and on for around 4 years. Not because I was single, but because of the good conversation!

    I presume that the purpose of the Singletree is to produce situations like that depicted below.

    Looks like they are happily married and living OK on their homestead.

    Of course, they could be "shacking up".

    I was looking to start dating again after my divorce and Grizz wanted a place online where single folks wouldn't be slammed by folks who thought the homesteading idea was for married folks only. After a few weeks I let him talk me into setting up and launching the board.

    Glad I gave into the pressure he put on me to launch this board because it has worked out good for a lot of us single folks and it still does.

    11 years ago last month. I was on HT before that, but that is when the ex decided to leave. Just came looking for company, not looking to date.

    I started October 2003. At first I asked for advice. I then got hooked and it became my significant other. Life got too hectic and now I only get on from time to time. I still enjoy viewing, just don't have a lot of time.

    Well, I kind of meant how long they had been coming here to ST.

    As I recall, I used log on to ST in he morning, and read with one eye on the clock. That way I could make sure the kids got off to school on time.

    Those kids are now in their 20's, both are employed, and my daughter is getting married June 3rd.

    I first came here when I was 60, because this subforum seemed to be where the more thoughtful and less self-absorbed HT'ers congregated. At that time.

    I came here a couple years before my divorce which was in 2005 just because the posts were so interesting and funny!!! It got me hooked!!! I sure miss all the really fun people we had her in the past. Swampman should have written a book on his exploits!!!

    Whatever happened to Nick? He was a hoot! I hope he found his happiness.
