Hi - I was on the first Tee Bee Dee site. Recently, I got the Message of Doom - entitled
Message from RobinWolaner: A Message I Didn't Want to Send. I thought TBD was doing great! I am sorry that the group has to end there, but glad it is starting here. I will try to re-join the groups I was already in and do my profile too. I plan to be proactive about adding friends this time.
It's a lot more fun with friends!

Anybody know how we can add a link here? I want to link to my WordPress blog rather than trying to keep one here and one there, too...any suggestions are most welcome!

Many TBDers have planted their flags here, like the Americans planted a flag or two on the moon. We marked the territory, so we consider the job done. Were not really there, but we went there once.
The Ning TBD seems in a frozen, in-between place. So many folks from old TBD seem to be here, they've planted their flags, but they're hollow accounts, place-holders for when or if their true love sinks beneath the waves.
I am a traitor to my TBD-land, I find it easier to move… Continue

your comments, your profiles, your groups' membership?
I don't. It seems unamerican.

Have you ever noticed how in social networking, this new world, that you think you know somebody based on very little information, usually a brief post and an avatar. If the avatar is not their picture, you develop instantly a whole conception of them, vivid and detailed, whether you would like or dislike meeting them, etc. Then they post a picture of themselves, maybe a few years old, and your shocked: OMG, that is sooo not what I expected! They are white, they are gray or black or green, they… Continue

Today is a day of recognizing the freedoms we have. It is not a day for one political faction but a day for the people. For we have the greatest document that has ever been founded by man. It has propelled this country to greatness and levels no other country has ever seen since the dawn of time. So go out enjoy the freedoms you have and if you are not sure what you have read the Bill of rights they will tell you. Go celebrate and enjoy them. And when you do remember the oath keepers from the… Continue

I am having some red wine. I am feeling cocky and sarcastic and bitter and empowered. It is not just my embibing either. I have been hanging out with my friends who as a group are known as "chulas" which means "cuties" in Spanish. Dayum, that is so freakin multicultural----especially for a bunch of white chicks, plus the token: one latina, one Asian Indian, and one half breed Native American. Anyways, I am sitting around drinking and my mind wonders to thinking about fairness right? Of course I… Continue

I've never been one to resist putting my foot in my mouth, so:
This site works. There are some features that TBD has/had that I'll definitely miss, but any successful enterprise has something about it that attracts. The bugs and performance were frustrating. The addition of purchasable goodies right before they announced bankruptcy seemed ill-timed. I didn't plop down a ton of dough, but I'm not expecting it back, I know if I took a pen from some bank's lobby they would chase me out… Continue

Let’s face it, through a series of minor and small events, this day was never, ever going to get a Gold Star on my calendar of ways to start a major holiday weekend. It’s sort of like breaking your shoe lace just before you drop your morning toast butter-side down on a clean kitchen floor. Nothing major, just in toto major league annoying.
But there was something, some small part of me that always teeters one way or the other…that says ‘don’t give up, things will get better!’ (or worse on… Continue

OK...so, I was away for a while and didn't log onto TeeBeeDee for a few months. OK...so, it was six months.
But when I came back with vim and vigor ready to put my two cents worth in, lo and behold!...the site was slateted for shut down! WHY?
But not so much was the question, why
was it shutting down, so much as why was everyone saying, "Thanks for the laughs, it was fun while it lasted, let's now go over to Ning." What? No fight? No "Hey, wait a minute, I'm… Continue

Shouldn't Nikola Tesla have the same accolades of any great scientist or inventor and his accomplish be taught in school? Have you ever use an ac motor(anything like a electric can opener or an motor you plug into your house electrical outlets.), you can thank Tesla for. There is a company coming out with a device so you do not
have to plug in your house electrical devices into outlets to work. Tesla developed that technology but on a grander scale than for one house. There are a lot of… Continue

I strive to live in the moment.
In fact, I work extra hard to live in the moment.
But I care what I fill my moments up with,like communication.I value communication,I like it to be communication that has value.
And here I thought cell phones were bad,I just didn't have that much important infomation to talk about, all day long,where ever I was at the moment.Then Blue Tooth came along on the ears of good citizens, making me… Continue

Well my friends, it all started last Sunday night,
whils't watching one of David Attenborough's Documentaries,
this particular one was about the life cycle of the North Atlantic Salmon
- the home of the Grizzly Bear.
Now they do say, that if you want to get your message across with
young boys, the best way to do it, is to choose a time when they
are focusing on something else, as apparently, they don't… Continue

I am beginning to feel like a bag lady. Here I am with my cyber shopping cart toting around all my belongings in it,my photos,my friends list,my likes and dislikes.
After being exiled once before, I roamed from social site to social site. And just when I got good and comfy on a new site,moved myself into a little home sweet home all my own again ....here comes the bad news, and the cyber rug is pulled out from under my feet one more… Continue

Color me late to the party. Life has been hectic and I just now read the news that TBD is closing. Well, pooh! But hey, the good news is that we're here - and it's the start of something new.
I'm big on starting something new and this year seems to be the time for it. I've been writing erotic romance for the last three years and while it's great fun, there are times I itch to write something with less erotic and more plot. Well, be careful what you ask for, right? A backer appeared… Continue
