I have joining four new social groups; one security-oriented and one photographic with two general ones. I posted straight away on all except the security spot and had a good response; everyone seems very friendly. Someone came back from the security spot asking if I knew anyone for a job in Dubai. I conclude from this that it is a networking thing as much as a discussion group. I think I am a bit too old now to think of Dubai!
Daughter Caroline has been pestering me on Facebook to play her at Scrabble. I think she still smarts over growing up when she used to get beaten all ends up. She is now very good at it; I've taken on the challenge and we shall see if the old magic is still there.
