    also, why did it take 2 years to find this plane? the technology was there then to do it right. the families have suffered to long.

    Ok, reason why I'm pursuing is cause I saw her pic on one of the live blogs here and man couldn't get that face out of my mind. So any way when I saw her name hear, thought I'd try SIGH.

  9. blogging?

    facebook is perfect for y'all. also twitter – 140 characters is perfect for your chit-chat. also real easy to setup your own forum where you can go to chit-chat together.
    i can barely post or get proper thoughts about these news articles due to the childish back and forth from y'all. take it somewhere else, PLEASE!

    @ELMER FUDD...no, not really. (does Philip know JAZZ, the one that works at a deli.) We've discussed some stuff and read each others posts. And a few of my friends here are friendly with her. But no, I do not know her. You've got one thing going for you though: women absolutly lllllove to be pursued. It'd be neato if yoou two got together. that would really tick s/n 'blogging?' off.

      Correction , the Deli is my part time job. My full time day job is at a hospital in the Billing Dept. Pls Don't try to play match maker with me any more.
