I went through my share of getting beat up my first few years on the forums. I don't seem to get that much anymore and sure don't miss it.

Gosh Wiz, I am not planning to retire for another decade so it is nice to see what it is like to have free time. I do have free time. I need breaks once in a while at work so it gives me something to relax with.

Well another decade and my wife should be working and I will have a lot of free time. However she tells me when I do retire I can take over the cooking, cleaning, yard work, vacuming, dishes, ironing, washing the cars, getting groceries, washing windows, scrubbing floors. Life with "free time" will be great I am sure. I might not have time to visit the forums though.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Can you please introduce yourself on the intro forum, as a courtesy to other members here, let us know a little more about yourself and what is your interest in a Russian theme forum?

Look forward to read more about you.

There really isn't a set retirement age in the USA Lucky. 65 is probably consdiered typical and 62 is also common. A lot of people here retire and then end up finding a job as a greeter at WalMart for something to do and some extra cash. Personally I may end up working until I am 80 but that depends on my health which is good so far and how long I enjoy it.

I thought slavery has ceased sometime ago......... [tonque.gif]

I see the new ruler of the household is having good plans for you! [haha.gif]

Well here in the UK the retirement age is 66 but I managed to escape earlier and started enjoying life by chasing Russian women...... [hurrah.gif]

Hope we can have good health till late in the lifespan of the average EU......82+

Keep the good work now that she is away .... [yahoo.gif]

Slavery remained a major institution in Russia until 1723, when Peter the Great converted the household slaves into house serfs.


Don't know about Turbo but wiz is still eligible to be a household slave.

The reason that wiz is still eligible is because he was born before household slaves were converted into house serfs.

Have you forgot that in Scotland you still have serfredom?

Going back to the topic......

In the past I used to be a prolific poster in many boards, but with time and after getting married, (next month it will be 3 years; doesn't time fly?) slowly I started posting less and less and only joining the debates or starting a new subject when I think it is something that it has not been beaten to death on these boards.

I think all of us go through such periods until something new and interesting is posted. Most married men are busier with their day lives and work, I am retired but still try to keep myself occupied with various hobbies and chores.

I think lately a big change and shift in emphasis has taken place in the MOB business but certain habits and old animosities are not easily forgotten between commercial and unsatisfied clients and I see them repeating again and again, like the latest attack on Jack (first Dream) and his business model. Some new arrogant kid on the block with little experience in the FSU and dating services, revived some old post on the largest forum and as usual having not done his homework or have any experience found himself on the receiving end of some critical comments and discovered that some older members have better experience and made good comments about Jack.

Funny how old feuds don't die easily between commercial members on these boards and from time to time flare up again and again.

I think on our board we should look more positively in the future and open wider our horizon's on the subjects we like talking about.

Turbo,
Have you ever watched a British Sitcom called Men Behaving Badly?
